Here is another of my favorites for a sweet treat.

I take bananas when they are fully ripe, peel them, and place them on a flat plate and pop into the freezer so they freeze individually. I then put them in a bag after they are frozen because freezing them that way they will not stick together.

I know have Popsicles that are totally fat free and healthy. If I want to make it a chocolate treat I will before freezing take about 1 TBSP of baking coco powder and sprinkle on a plate and roll the bananas in that before freezing.

If I am in the mood for chocolate and do not have any chocolate bananas in the freezer I will peel a banana and dip it into a quarter teaspoon of cocoa. The cocoa goes a long way, don't make the mistake I made the 1st time I did this. I dipped it into a whole teaspoon of cocoa and choked because the chocolate was so strong.

I've made sweet potato fries and added spices to them and baked them - they are wonderful. Also, I've made trail mix - 3/4 cup soy nuts and 1/4 cup rasins - it is 180 calories and it is wonderful and full of energy.

Hummus is a really healthy snack and quick to make. If you are in a hurry and can not use cock the beans fresh just open a can of chickpeas. Rinse them well to get all that salt and brine out. In a food chopper, mince 1 garlic clove, add the drained beans, a splash of lemon juice ( in a hurry use reconstituted, 1 TBS of olive oil, salt to taste. Blend till creamy. You can add a little water to thin it out. Enjoy with raw veggies as a dip.

If calories are not a problem you can make it the real way with extra olive oil and adding tahini. This is actually the proper way to make it. I usually make it without the tahini because I am usually watching my calories. I don't miss the tahini because the chickpeas actually have that nutty flavor.

You can also make a similar one using small white beans, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, ground cayenne pepper and minced fresh sage.

I need some inspiration. I saw the sweet potato idea. But, I sure would enjoy some more ideas.
