Stepfanie's recipe for the frozen banana dessert is as good or better than ice cream - and much healthier!!! (and this is coming from a real ice cream lover who ran an ice cream business where we made our own wonderful ice creams)

I'm always cautious of low-fat or light things because they tend to put weird unnatural things in to make up for the texture/flavor change. I think I'd rather just eat regular ice cream in smaller quantities. As for toppings, I consider myself lucky that my favorite is cinnamon.

I didn't know I could have so many choices. I am interested in trying the frozen yogurt and slow turned. Sounds perfect for me. I am so excited!

The healthiest diet-friendly "ice cream" I have had is not really ice cream, but tastes just as sinful! Just throw frozen bananas and frozen fresh strawberries into a blender (I use a high power vitamix) and blend! It is so good and makes you feel like you are cheating without the guilt!!!

Ice Cream topped with Hersey syrup is my weakness so I don't buy ice cream. However, maybe once a month I do treat myself to a small Dairy Queen Hot Fudge Sundae. I know. Bad me.

I am a HUGE fan of Yasso's Greek yogurt pops (yasso.com). They are low-calorie (80 cals), non-fat (except the new coconut ones which are low-fat), have no artificial sweeteners (about 12g of sugar per pop), are high in protein (6g per pop - 7 for the vanilla ones! - THE SAME AS AN EGG), and contain only natural ingredients. The strawberry ones are my favorite, but you can get them in six different flavors.

I like to take frozen bananas, chop them up and blend them with a little cocoa, a little stevia, maybe some almond milk. Very healthy and the texture is silky like ice cream.

TRY ARCTIC ZERO!!!!! ONLY 150 calories per PINT!!! Yes, 16 OZ!!!! I get this at Wal*Mart because I have a hard time stopping when it comes to ice cream. I recommend the chocolate :)

Weight Watchers Toffee Crunch bars--vanilla ice cream with the chocolate crackle coating and little toffee dots. Delicious and 100 calories.

I'm not much of an ice cream person, but during the hot summer months I sometimes feel the need...

The Healthy Choice Fudge Bars they list are also very good.

Living in Texas, we've been Blue Bell fans for years. However, I rarely buy ice cream. When I do, it lasts for months because we just don't indulge very often. I received a Cuisinart ice cream maker for Christmas and want to try making sorbet or granita with it. So far I've only made French vanilla but I don't use whole milk and since we don't eat it that often, I don't worry about the extra fat.
Thank you for the detailed information about the different types of frozen deserts.
