I just looked up honey in the SBD Good Fats Good Carbs Guide, Page 21 where the Phase 2 food recommendations are, and under foods to Avoid or Eat Rarely, honey is listed. It does not differentiate between Avoid or Eat Rarely...

Hey girls,
all those recipes sound so yummy! My mouth is actually watering! :lol:
Could somebody please tell me how the recipe for that chocolate/pb whip dessert goes? (I've tried the search but there's over 1400 entries of posts where all those words like 'cool', 'chocolate' etc. come up.. I guess I make something wrong here? :roll: :oops: )

Thanks, I'd really appreciate it!

I just looked for that one myself. It's in this thread - just scroll up a little. It seems to be just melting the fudgsicle slightly so it can be scraped off the stick, mixing it with some natural pb and a little cool whip. I keep reading that some people pop it back in the freezer for a little while so it comes out more like ice cream. Mmmm...

Nut allowance: if I eat my 2 Tbs pb, I *can't* have any pistachios, almonds, etc??? Bummer. Maybe I should just steer clear of these yummy pb desserts anyway, since I hear so much about stalling. I've only lost 5 pounds in 10 days as it is.

Sugar free gummi bears and fudsicles are great, IMO. Splenda can have an icky bitterness to it if it's not the exact right amount, but sf gummis and fudgsicles are *perfect*. I've been eating 8 gummi bears and one fudgsicle a day for my 75 calories. But I've been wondering about the 75 calorie limit, and I think I'll post a new topic. If wer'e allowed "unlimited" diet sodas, don't those count as sweet treats? And what if I make ricotta pancakes for breakfast (they contain Splenda): does that count against my 75-calorie allottment?

Many thanks for opinions, educated or anecdotal.

Here it is again. It is the best dessert especially for Phase 1, but good on all phases.


South Beach 'Peanut Butter Cup
Serves 1

1 no sugar added fudgsicle (I use Blue Bunny/35 calories each)
1-2 tablespoons natural peanut butter (I use Smuckers)
1-2 tablespoons light frozen whipped topping or whipping cream

Take a no sugar added fudgsicle, put it in a bowl and microwave it about 15-20 seconds. Scrape it off the stick. Then stir in 1-2 tablespoons of natural peanut butter and 1-2 tablespoons of light whipped topping. Mix together and enjoy.

I put mine in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes. Then it is like eating sinful ice cream.

I just added a link to this favorite dessert thread in my recipe summary sticky. It is listed near the top under the other Favorite SB recipes section and also in the Desserts section.

My new ideas (links all are in my recipe summary sticky under the Desserts):
Hot Cocoa Custard
Orange Dream Pie/Cheesecake (lemon jello variation is my favorite)
No Crust Strawberry Pie
Autumn Butterscotch Pie
Any of kimmipoo57s cheesecakes (love my banana variation and her white chocolate butterscotch one)
Pudding variations
Inside Out Chocolate Strawberries

Please feel free to add your ideas here too.
I love recipes so I put together the:

Ami that sounds postively decadent. Oh, and I am sure you meant 1/3 cup chocolate chips not 13 cup. :D

I like an old fashioned NSA Fudgesicle.

I also like to whip up mini muffins out of egg whites, pumpkin, splenda, and spices.

Is it weird that I don't do desserts? I eat a piece of fruit and usually that is dessert for me. I can't have most Beach legal desserts because just about all of them call for Splenda or some other artificial sweetner and I don't do any of them.

I do have two teaspons of honey per day in my jasmine tea. I have done so for more than a year with seemingly no ill effects.

Also, if I am really dying for dessert, I just suck it up and go all out and have some Haagen Daz. It is all gone in about five minutes and that's that. If I make dessert, it will mock me from the kitchen, calling me to eat it all up.

my dessert is fruit with 'cream'.

and that's only occasionally as I usually have my fruit between lunch and dinner as a snack.

Chocolate Peach Cheesecake – P2

Postby ami » Mon Aug 06, 2007 12:18 am

I came up with this cheesecake tonight with whatever I had in the fridge at the time. I'm sure you can use other flavors of yogurt and different fruits like berries make variations.

I usually have fresh fruits with just yogurt and sugar-free whip topping but I think this dessert is a great change of pace :wink:

Chocolate Peach Cheesecake – P2

Crust for small pie plate (8”)
1/3- cup nuts
½ cup whole-wheat flour
1 Tbs. Cooking oil
1 Tbs. Splenda
1 tsp. vanilla
1 Tbs. cocoa

Preheat oven to 350F.
Put nuts in food processor to crush them.
Add remaining ingredients.
Process until all mix well.
Spray an 8” pie pan with cooking spray.
Place mixture into pie pan and spread to cover bottom of pie plate.
Bake crust for 10 minutes.
Remove from oven and set aside to cool.


1 package fat-free cream cheese
2 Tbs. Splenda
1 Tbs. Sugar-free Amaretto syrup
or your favorite DaVinci Syrup
1-6 oz. Carton “lite” peach flavor yogurt

Put all ingredients in processor and mix well.
Pour mixture over cool-off piecrust.
Spread evenly and place in freezer to set (about 1 hour)

To serve:
Cut cheesecake in serving portions.
Place some sliced fresh peaches on top (or any other fresh fruit)

Top cheesecake with sugar-free whip cream if desire.
