I LOVE watermelon juice. Got hooked on it in Singapore - over crushed ice it was the only thing that revived me in that humidity. I do mine simply: chunks into the blender with a few ice cubes and whiz on high. That way you retain all the fiber. The blender just needs a quick rinse.

I love the various types of ice cream and ice cream bars that weight watchers has. Its not unusual for me to want a "goodie" after dinner and it is very easy to save enough points to enjoy one of these at night. If for some reason, I am out of points, I will have a sugar free jello cup. No calories - no points.

Chewing gum, fresh fruit or (my favorite) a Starburst fruit chew (its SO yum and has only 20 calories per piece. One piece will kill your craving just like that! )

I'm the kind of person who, if I'm having sweets cravings, I can't have a little bit of what I want because then I'll go overboard (it happens EVERY TIME, so I'm not doing it anymore).

I can eat sweet things, just not any sweet thing because it'll trigger me to overeat.

One of my favs right now is a creamsicle-style dessert. It's super easy and low in calories.

1 package sugar free orange jello (20 cals) (my fav is orange!)
2 cups light cool whip (320 cals)

Empty the jello packet into a bowl. Pour on 1/2 cup boiling water and mix for 2 minutes until totally dissolved. Then add 1 cup cold water. Refrigerate for ~45 minutes or until kind of set but still mixable. Add the cool whip and mix well until well blended. Refrigerate again for at least 3 hours (the longer it goes, the more it sets). Slice and serve.

Make it kind of a bigger bowl. This recipe makes enough dessert to fill an 8 oz whipped topping container.

The whole thing is 340 calories, and I usually slice it into 4ths and eat a piece for 85 cals. It's sweet and creamy and delicious.

Baked Apples -

Cut, core and season with cinnoman/nutmeg/ginger/splenda/brown sugar/etc.

Bake at 400 til it's as mushy and apple pie'ish as you want.

Top with cool whip, frozen yogurt, ice cream, nothing, etc.

I've also done this with pears.

I do 1/2c. breyers carb smart vanilla ice cream (90kcal) and 1/2 apple (40kcal)
