TruWhip Vegan

2 tbsp: 35 calories, 2.5g total fat (2g sat fat), 0mg sodium, 3g carbs, 0g fiber, 2g sugars, 0g protein -- SmartPoints® value 2*

This vegan whipped topping is one of the best dairy-free whips we have tried! It's insanely rich and creamy, and it takes any summer dessert up about 18 notches. Find it in the freezer case near the frozen fruit, and prepare to achieve a whole new level of non-dairy decadence.

Figgin’ Fruit Soft Baked Real Fig Poppables

5 pieces: 100 - 110 calories, 2.5g total fat (0g sat fat), 85 - 90mg sodium, 21 - 22g carbs, 2g fiber, 11 - 12g sugars, 1g protein -- SmartPoints® value 4 - 5*

These babies are figgin' delicious! They taste like a cross between Fig Newtons and Pop-Tarts, in perfect nugget form. There are three varieties: Strawberry, Chia & Fig; Blueberry, Açaí & Fig; and Turkish Fig (a.k.a. original, which is Lisa's favorite). We love that they’re available in both multi-serve and single-serve bags. Find some in a store near you, or add them to your Amazon cart.

Yes Peas from Popchips

1 oz. (about 18 - 21 chips): 110 - 120 calories, 3 - 4g total fat (0g sat fat), 160mg sodium, 16g carbs, 3g fiber, <1 - 1g sugars, 6g protein -- SmartPoints® value 3*

Popchips does it again! These pea snacks are crunchier than the brand’s popped chips, and they’ve got a bonus boost of protein. If you like peas, you will love these chips. Both the Himalayan Salt and Farmhouse Ranch varieties make our taste buds super happy. Track down a bag, or just order up a stash on Amazon!
