3 Ingredient Frozen Skinny Chocolate Pies

Wait. What?  Frozen Skinny Chocolate Pies? And only 3 ingredients?  That's right. It's true. And they are fabulous!  Just a little bit of chocolately goodness and it's frozen so just perfect for these warm Summer days. Gluten free, almost fat free too.

I have no idea where this recipe started but I can tell you I found it on the new social media channel called Connect, on the Weight Watchers Canada app.  They are calling it a rather crass name that I won't repeat... totally unappealing... so I have changed the name but not the ingredients or the goodness!

So what is in these little goodies, you are wondering? What makes them skinny?  Well, they are made from coco powder, and de-fatted peanut flour and a banana.  I happened to use Protein Plus peanut flour the first time I made them, and have used PB2 since then, and I am sure they would be just as good with chocolate PB2 as well... and I hear there is a new de-fatted peanut flour around now too, called PB & Me. Haven't seen it yet, but when I do, I will be trying it for sure.  I really think these de-fatted peanut flours are a Weight Watchers best friend!

The whole recipe is only 1 Smart Point on the Weight Watchers program.

So, let's get to it, shall we?

  1. Bananas can pretty much do anything. Just like avocados!
