Its been a few months and I need some new ideas! My go to's for months have been greek yogurt w/ sugar free hot choc mix stirred in, when I am dying for a dessert. Or air popped popcorn when I want something snack ish.

Its not for every day use, but does anyone have some new low calorie suggestions to satisfy a sweet or salty craving??

Side note I have a gluten / wheat intolerance. AND trying (I do stress trying) to eat clean. Haha I know, I'm picky ;)

Thank you!!!

Cocoa Meringue Drops (Serves 40)

recipe ingredients
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
Pinch of salt
3 large egg whites
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
2 tablespoon powdered sugar

recipe directions
Preheat oven to 300F. Line 2 heavy large baking sheets with foil or parchment paper. Sift 1/4 cup sugar, cocoa and salt into small bowl. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar in large bowl until soft peaks begin to form. Add remaining 1/4 cup sugar 1/2 tablespoon at a time and beat until medium-firm peaks form. Add cocoa mixture 1 tablespoon at a time and beat until meringue is stiff and glossy.
Drop meringue onto prepared baking sheets by rounded teaspoonfuls, spacing 1 inch apart. For chewy soft cookies, bake meringues 25 minutes. For drier, crisper cookies, bake meringues 40 minutes. Cool cookies on baking sheets. Sift powdered sugar over cookies.

I love ice-cream, so I've been trying to find a lower calorie replacement that won't completely ruin my diet for the day..

Frozen fat-free pudding is DELICIOUS. (if you like pudding in the first place, that is ;)) Freeze it until solid and pull out of the freezer about 5 minutes before you want to eat, and it's perfect. mmm...
