- Veggies with 1 T. hummus or all-natural pimento cheese (found at Whole Foods)
- 1/2 apple or other fruit with 5 almonds or cashews (unsalted, raw)
- Plain, nonfat Greek yogurt sweetened with Stevia, mixed with 1/2 cup berries, sprinkled with ground flaxseed (it provides a "nutty" taste and supplies fiber -- it's good, really!)
- SUPER YUMMY frozen strawberry treat: In a blender, combine 8-12 ounces of Wyler's sugar-free pink lemonade with a handful of ice cubes and 5 frozen strawberries. Blend and enjoy.
- Graham cracker sandwich: Take a sheet of graham cracker and break it in half. Put 1/4 cup or less of light or fat free cool whip on one cracker, top with the other, wrap in plastic wrap, and freeze. It makes for a great alternative to a traditional ice cream treat.
