Take a rice cake, put some peanut butter on top and some chocolate syrup (Hersheys Lite) OR, Mary's thing: nuke frozen blueberries and add some cool whip free and a crumbled graham cracker (I do mine without the cracker) OR my old WW recipe, put cool whip free between two squares of graham cracker and freeze for an ice cream sandwich. (LOL- can you tell I like to EAT?!)

I keep meaning to try frozen diced bananas with warmed up peanut butter (like hot fudge sauce) and cool whip, but I keep forgetting. I like putting a pancake in the blueberry stuff-like a cobbler that way. Just play around with peanut butter, ff cream cheese, and ff cool whip and your fruits.

I also saw a recipe today to blend ff cottage cheese, ricotta cheese (equal amounts) and raspberries to make a mousse, then layer with kashi crunch and other fruit, like a parfait.

This blizzard tastes just like the one from Dairy Queen, and counts as 2 L A Lites!

L A Lite Shake (Vanilla or Chocolate)
L A Lite Bar (Caramel, Cookie Dough, or Double Chocolate)

Just make the shake any way you choose (add milk or yogurt if desired)
Freeze an L A Lite bar and crush it into pieces.
Stir the pieces up into the shake and place it back into the freezer for about 10 minutes (for thickness).
Add low-fat whipped cream, and enjoy!!!
