*SNICKERS CRUSTLESS PIE*

1 pint SF FF chocolate frozen yogurt
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 container for SF Cool Whip
3/4 c grapenuts

Blend ingredients and put into a glass pie pan. (Freeze?)



So, for the entire pie: 4 starches, 3.5 proteins and whatever the SF Cool Whip would count for. This is an entire pie, so if it's cut into 8 slices, it would be approximately 1/2 starch, 1/2 protein, and whatever the container of Cool Whip would be divided by 8.
