Substitute ice cream with frozen fruit. Not only will your taste buds thank you for the treat, but you'll sneak in some daily fruit servings this way too. I like to mix up frozen mango chunks, pomegranate seeds and berries, but you can use whatever fruit you like. (click for more info)
Let the fruit thaw out a bit for a few minutes before eating to get it softer.
I get my fruit pre-frozen from Trader Joe's, but if you don't have that convenience, you can easily buy fruit, clean it, prep it (cut bigger fruit into bite-sized pieces) and freeze it in freezer bags. Enjoy!

I have been buying frozen fruits such as strawberries, or strawberry, peach, banana mix to make frozen fruit smoothies. Fresh bananas also to add to just the plain bag of strawberries. I use water, ice, some artificial sweeteners and crystal light drink mix in a blender and have two of these a day, they are soooo good. A great way to fill up, have your fruit and make it feel like a treat.
I like frozen fruit. i freeze watermelon, cantaloupe i use a melon baller and scoop the fruit out. you can also freeze grapes. my husband like frozen bananas he freezes then in the skin, when he is ready to eat one he peels the skin with a knife. frozen fruit is great in the summer when you want some thing cold to eat.
