I really don't like how the pictures are misleading, particularly # 12. I expect better from SparkPeople!

I love topping a banana with some peanut butter and a little granola. I then throw it in the microwave for about 1 minute. It tastes like a yummy dessert.

Try freezing a can of pineapple chunks (drained). Put in food processor, add a container of fat-free vanilla or pina colada yogurt, 1t. lemon juice & a packet of splenda. Process and you've got a delicious PINEAPPLE SORBET. Serves 2, each about 100 calories!! Eat immediately or freeze in popsicle molds

These look great...I actually do the popcorn suggestion but with many different versions. Some times I sprinkle with cinnamon and sometimes I sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese...it depends on what flavor I'm in the mood for...
