Secret Guests and Pure Protein

I blogged at Writes of Passage today about a visitor I had this weekend. Can you guess who it was from the picture to the right? Click over and see if you were right!

While you're there, you're going to see a picture of this Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Pie…

Never fear, Stacey Sanders Daniel provided us with the recipe. And it's delicious!!! I made it last night and gracious! I'm thinking of having it for breakfast too. 

I'm sure the low-fat peanut butter qualifies the pie as "pure protein" now. (Oh please, let me dream.) But truly, Stacey let me know that a slice of this is only 7 points on Weight Watchers. So come on over and join me.

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Pie Recipe
1/2 cup reduced-fat peanut butter
4 oz light cream cheese
4 oz fat-free cream cheese
12 oz fat-free sweetened condensed milk
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 cup lite whipped topping, thawed if frozen
5 Tbsp mini chocolate chips, divided
6 oz pie crust

In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat together peanut butter and both types of cream cheese until smooth. Gradually beat in milk and lemon juice; fold in whipped topping and 4 tablespoons of mini chocolate chips.
Spoon peanut butter mixture into prepared pie crust; sprinkle remaining 1 tablespoon of chocolate chips over top. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze until firm, at least 4 hours. Slice into 10 pieces and serve. Dig in!
Weight Watchers Points = 7 (WW Points)
And Stacey adds: Let me tell you how awesome this is! I will confess that I often just get the light cream cheese and use that instead of getting two different kinds and only using half of each. It still tastes awesome! 

Off to grab some protein, friends… Thank you, Stacey, for sharing your recipe.

So, what are YOU having for breakfast this morning? ; )
