Ice Cream Substitute

Sometimes I crave something cold…usually in the form of ice cream in a bowl. Popsicles are okay once in awhile….but now I buy a big bag of mixed frozen fruit…I put a portion in my bowl still frozen. Tastes delicious, fills me up especially if I add yogurt and it's all on my food plan….takes longe...

What's healthy in the Junk Food You are craving after workout?

I've noticed that after a good workout, when I am suddenly "craving" some junk food like ice cream or something cheese-y etc, if I take a moment to think about what is in the food that might be soothed with a healthier substitute. For ice cream, I usually find a small container of Greek yogurt with ...

Trigger food

If I have a trigger food that usually I can't keep in my house without finishing off the whole box...for me mint ice cream bars...I hide them in the back of the freezer with everything piled on top so that I can't get to them without digging everything else out first!!

Quick Fruit Fix with Yoplait Smoothie Bags

Forget the smoothie, it's great as an on-the-go bag of fruit and yogurt. Just grab a fork or dig in with your hands; there are a few varieties and it's only 70 calories per 1/2 cup serving. Although it's kept in the freezer, the fruit doesn't get rock solid, just very cold and refreshing! Perfect fo...

Give Relatives A Serving Size Package of Tempting Foods

Give relatives who want a food that tempts you a single serving package.e.g. snack size chips, single ice cream bar. No leftovers, no temptation! And talk to them about the myth of willpower.

skinny cow ice cream

I eat this whenever I have a craving for something sweet or if I need something quick. It has fiber in it and it prevents me from running back and forth to the freezer for another one. One pop just does the trick.

I Scream, You scream, We all scream for... Cool Whip?

With summer weather hitting hard I have a taste for ice cream. My fix? Frozen Cool Whip Free. 1/2 cup has only 60 calories and no fat. It's rich and creamy and totally kicks the craving! Just keep frozen like ice cream and serve with fresh fruit =)

Choose a favorite and say no to the rest

If you have a "trigger food" or binge item, one thing that helps me is to decide only to eat one type. I'll have a small serving of strawberry ice cream but say no to every other flavor or brand, just to keep from eating it except as a special "treat." Make a decision it is not worth it unless you...

Attack of the ICE CREAM CRAVING!!

When I'm craving something sweet and cold, I go for about 1/2c of organic frozen dark cherries, put them in a bowl with about a 1/4c of almond milk (or skim or soy or yogurt even) and eat them up!
The milk semi freezes the cherries and it's almost like Cherry Garcia ice cream.... only really good...

So Delicious Dairy Free Neapolitan Frozen Dessert

I don't know how to describe this frozen dessert. I tried it because Sparkpeople recommended it in an article, but I won't be recommending it to anyone. Sure it's organic, low in fat, sugar and calories (120 per 1/2 cup), but it's missing the creamy texture of ice cream. I prefer Edy's Slow Churn...

Frozen Sweet treat!

I have a definite craving for ice cream that crops up often. To satisfy that craving and get a serving of fruit, I have frozen fruit! Granted there's no spoon involved, but its a great way to have a healthy frozen treat

Ice Cream Portion Control

Put your ice cream in a cone! I always tend to serve up more than just one serving (1/2 cup? yeah right!) but you can only fit so much in a cone, and it makes it more fun and tastier too! Plus, it helps me resist the temptation to top it with chocolate, cherries, etc... that could get a lil too mes...

Eat an Ice Cream Cone

I love ice cream, and continue to eat it as part of my healthy diet, but the problem happens when I buy it and eat a whole bowl full! I buy cones now. They're fun, they're 20 calories, and they're a great way to stick to one scoop.

Find healthy swaps

If you like..
* ice cream, find a healthier version (I like Dreyer's double churned no sugar added)
* fried chicken, find a baked version that you like
* high salt & fat snacks, try salted dry roasted edamame

There are always better options!

Yes you can have Ice Cream!

Invest in some kids cones - they are TINY only about 5 calories per cone. You can only fit about 1 -2 tbls of ice cream, which is about 1/4 of a normal serving. You can have two of these "cones" be completely satisfied and have had under 200 calories! Depending on your ice cream - under 100!

Healthier Alternative to Ice Cream is Frozen Peanut Butter

Recently saw on Dr. Oz that he recommends frozen peanut butter as a healthier alternative to ice cream.

I have also heard that mashing/blending frozen bananas is also a good "base" for making flavored ice cream without the fat.

Ice Cream Cheat

If you're into the bad habit of having ice cream then there is a simple solution that can be as good for you as you want it to be. I found this out when I was working at a summer camp. It's fun and delicious without making you feel guilty after! You can also add in fruit (so good).
