If I want ice cream, I'll have ice cream :) I just make sure to fit it into my macros for the day. This does not mean I will eat the whole tub in one sitting, just eating a serving size, especially if I've had a really intense lifting session that day.

Trader Joe's Hold the Cone mini ice cream cones are the perfect little bite (actually about 3 -4 bites) of cone, chocolate, and ice cream and only 70 calories each cone. You could even have two and still meet nutrition goals for the day if you're careful.

The best part for me is that it's the real deal, just a small portion. No need to substitute with something artificial

I get individual cups, like the cute sundae cups or Weight Watchers pre packaged ice cream/treats. The only way I can stay on track. And I like to know exact calorie counts/portion sizes so this helps.

I just found that Turkey Hill makes frozen yogurt. I picked some up yesterday. It was chocolate marshmallow and one serving (1/2 cup) has 110 calories which I think is very reasonable. I plan on having this once a week or so.

I just eat a 1/4 or 1/2 cup of frozen yogurt instead. I don't plan to give up ice cream for life, so I'm not giving it up while losing weight - just managing to incorporate it in a healthy way.

I love Skinny Cow brand "ice cream novelties." They are low calorie and absolutely delicious. I don't indulge every day, but when I do, I don't have to feel guilty.

Drumsticks makes Li'l Drumsticks in a variety of flavors, about 130 calories. That's less than some Skinny Cow treats!

Because ice cream is a treat for me I enjoy a big bowl about 4 times a year. I buy three to four flavors and have a large scoop of each. Sometimes I sneek into it the next day, but most times not. I am okay with my relationship with ice cream :)

I make frozen banana ice cream. Have you tried that? Only one ingredient - really it's just a different way of getting a portion of fruit into your day, but it's sweet and creamy like proper ice cream. I find that it does the trick.

Which is most satisfying: to get a box of weight watchers ice cream treats to nibble on during the week or to have just one serving of regular ice cream once a week?

How do you get your ice cream fix?
