This is a healthier version than most refried bean recipes. You can make this vegetarian by using all water.And the best part of all it cooks in the crockpot! This is adapted from

Recipe #234919

This is such a wonderful summertime treat! I have used all kinds of fruit combinations in this; use your imagination. Far richer and intense in flavour than anything you can buy, and yet it's almost all just healthy fruit. The fruits that work best have a fairly smooth fleshy texture; things like mangoes, muskmelons, peaches, apricots, and bananas. But also good are strawberries, pineapple, blueberries and the like. Seedy or watery fruits can be used, but it is best to use them mixed with something that has a smoother denser texture, and to use less of them. Cook time is tempering time, but prep time does not include freezing time.

As we were walking through the grocery store, we stopped to try a sample at the Deli. It tasted like Tuna Salad rolled up in a tortilla and it was very good. We went home and made our own version and it tasted even better. The recipe is easy, tasty, and you can make a low fat version.

Recipe #185232

In July 2005, five women set out to Florence Italy to found Zaarbucks, a chain of kiosks serving coffees, teas, jaffles, fudge and baked goods. Early on, the group's business manger, PanNan, figured out that customers hooked on their fabulous baked goods would soon gain so much weight they would stop buying their daily muffins and scones. Quickly Bergy and Derf began working on a new recipe for a deletable new scone that would be kind to the figure. Having developed a basic recipe for light scones, they worked with Madeleine M. to develop a range of flavor combinations that would rival none. Apricot-Almond was by far my favorite so today, one time only, I'm sharing the recipe with you. Don't tell 'em where you got the recipe.

Based on a recipe from an old copy of Everyday Food, this is my version designed as a one point treat. A word of caution for other calorie counters, I have tried in other versions of meringues to use Splenda but have not had good results with more than a third substitute. (2 meringues = 1 WW pt)
