Garbanzo Bean Pitas Meal

Garbanzo Bean Pitas Meal

For a fun change of pace, give Garbanzo Bean Pitas a try. Susan L. of Sulphur, Louisiana treats pitas to a swift bean spread before stuffing them with juicy cucumber slices and chopped tomato.

Crushed pineapple, citrus flavors, bananas and maraschino cherries make LeAnn K.’s Icy Fruit Pops a favorite summer dessert. The Forsyth, Illinois subscriber uses sugar substitute for the healthy treats.



  • For extra zing, substitute lemon juice for the water in the pitas’ bean spread.
  • Susan sometimes adds Greek olives and feta cheese to the sandwiches.
  • Don’t have any cherries or strawberries on hand for the pops? Try using seedless grapes instead.
