I love my ice cream and frozen greek yogurt, so just have them when I want, but in smaller portions (yes, 1/2 cup really can be enough - who knew?!).
My favorite for summer, though, is having a ton of fresh fruit and berries always in the fridge ready to nibble on. I'll put out a spread of cut up watermelon, cantaloupe, strawberries, kiwis, apples, pears, cherries, and whatever else I can find. I make a dip out of unsweetened organic plain yogurt with unsweetened cocoa powder to get the chocolate taste. I find that the fruit makes it sweet enough, but you could always add a touch of sweetener to the dip if you prefer. I have sometimes used a touch of Kahlua to the dip to give it a slightly different flavour.
Oooh - now I'm all impatient for summer to get here!

Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.
Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. If you are 50 or older, or have any symptoms, please don't let fear stop you from covering your butt.
