If you have a penchant for ice cream or frozen desserts, why not make a Fruit slushy? I treat myself like a queen when I make these. Take a big wine goblet or fancy dessert glass, add frozen fruit (cherries, strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, etc.). This is where you can splurge...either pour diet cranberry juice over the fruit, OR wine (if you work it into your daily calorie in-take!) and then eat it with a spoon! The liguid turns slushy.
When I eat this, I try to "set the stage" for it....I light some candles, turn on some quiet music, grab a book and take my time to savor the fruity flavors. It is importatnt to make some ME time everyday! Be the Queen that you are!

Its a mixer on steroids. It makes healthy frozen desserts (ice cream) in 30 seconds and boils in 5 minutes. Best thing I ever bought. Not cheap but worth every penny. I use it daily year round. I use it for everything, can't believe what I can do with it. Knock offs don't compare to the Vitamix!
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 Churned which is actually lower in fat, calories and sugar than the So Be, plus it's creamy! There are other nutritional differences, but in this case I'll go with what tastes better.
