This is a dessert ladies. Not a meal. Look at the protein amount compared to proteen in a slice of cake. I would make this over a DQ banana split anyday. Its a TREAT! If I were hosting a bbq, this would be my choice of dessert served...

I think that this recipe is one of the reason that omen believe that they are not loosing weight on a diet. 377 calories for a sweet stuff?! Not a good idea. Just eat a big pleat of rise with boiled shirmps and peas. You'll see that your hunger will desapear, you dont eat any fat and saturated fat, and the whole meal it is just the same amount of calorie as a banana split. Except healtier.
