Thanks Calico! That sounds really good. I'd like to try it with frozen raspberries, too. Yum!

A twist on the one getoffmyskittle mentioned: cut a banana into a few chunks, add a little pot of natural yoghurt, some honey if you want (if the banana is quite ripe it's probably sweet enough without) and add milk. Blend it all together in a blender or with a handheld electric mixerthingie. You can kind of choose how liquid you want it by adding more or less milk.
I really love it, sort of like a banana milkshake It's also an excellent drink for when you're not hungry enough to eat breakfast in the mornings but don't want to go out with an empty stomach etc. it really gives you some energy. Sometimes I add an apple too.
And I got the recipe from a site with food to make your hair healthier
I'm gonna try getoffmyskittle's variation too!!

For salty-sweet munchiness, I like a mix of peanuts, raisins, sunflower-seeds and chocolate chips (not a lot of chocolate chips; just enough to give you a kick now and then).

The other thing I really like is popcorn, airpopped, then sprayed with "I can't believe it's not butter" spray-on butter-ish-whatever-the-heck-it-is. Supposedly, there are NO calories in it if you use 5 sprays. I use like twenty, so I'm sure I'm not calorieless, but oh well.

The other thing we do at night (I will do it here in a minute) is to take a frozen banana (we freeze those puppies when they're sitting on the counter getting REALLY freckled) and pop it in the blender with milk and ice-cubes and maybe some other frozen fruits (peaches, strawberries, grapes, melon, whatever) and a couple of packets of fake-sweetener and make a shake. It's really good, and the only calories are from the fruit and milk, and I don't feel bad about consuming milk calories or fruit calories.

HTH,
Lisa

2 of my favorites:

1. Similar to Leisha's shake: In a blender I mix. 1 cup milk, 1 tbsp honey, some peanuts (I don't measure, maybe 2 tbsp), 1 heaping tbsp of peanut butter, 1 banana. This is called the Breakfast Shake but I have it when I feel like it *smile*. I also add things like flax seeds and black cumin seeds. It is soooo good!.

2. My other favorite is just pita bread with hummus. I get this hummus which is a mix of hummus and tahini, oh, I wish I could get the recipe. I could live off of it.

Both are pretty fillilng.

Crackers with goat cheese usually hit the spot for me. Big grapes are good too. We get huge grapes when we go food shopping. Love 'em! Yogurt is always good for a little snack with fresh fruit or on top of those little yellow spongecakes for a healthier dessert replacement.

Dried fruit (apples, pears, apricots, pinapple, etc.) is a good snack food. Also fresh apple, sliced in sections, with honey is a good dessert.
My mother makes a milk shake with yogurt instead of milk. She uses plain yogurt and any combination of fruits and berries available in the house.

Sliced apple with soy butter.

Crackers with soy butter.

Bananas with soy butter.

(no peanuts in our house due to allergy)
