Hungry Girl Today: 06.22.06





WEEKLY WEIGH-IN



Dream of eating huge honkin' slices of apple pie or banana cream pie?

Forget it. Ditch those slices of silliness and whip up one of these guilt-free

smoothies instead...



HG's Banana Cream Pie Bonanaza!

(170 calories, 0.5g fat, 123mg sodium, 37g carbs, 2g fiber, 17g sugars, 4g

protein = 3 points)



Ingredients:

1/3 cup light vanilla soy milk

1/3 container of Yoplait Light Vanilla Yogurt

½ medium banana (frozen, cut into pieces)

3 Splenda packets

2 oz. water

1 tsp. Fat Free Vanilla Coffee-mate creamer (powder)

¼ bag Nabisco 100 Calorie Packs, Honey Maid Cinnamon Thin Crisps

(crushed)

6-8 ice cubes

2 Tbsp. FF Cool Whip or one serving of FF Reddi-Wip



Directions:

Place soy milk, yogurt, banana, Splenda, water, creamer (dissolved in 1 oz.

water), half of your crushed thin crisps, and ice in blender. Blend on highest

speed for 30-45 seconds. If you don't have a powerful blender, you may

want to add the ice slowly, to make sure it crushes properly. Your smoothie

is ready when it's at your desired consistency. Pour into a tall, pretty glass.

Top with whipped topping. Sprinkle remaining cinnamon thin crisps on top.

Enjoy a lot!

HG Update! After yesterday's "Ask" relating to butter vs. margarine, we

received a slew of emails from doctors, nutritionists and more offering up

other opinions on the subject. We'd like to share. Most agree that

margarine, though lower in saturated fat, is higher in trans fat (which is very

bad). Many agree that using butter (though not sticks of butter, which often

contain trans fat) is a better option for the most part. Also, spreads like

Smart Beat and Benecol are heart-healthy and can improve cholesterol.
