Use custard cups to serve up ice cream. I have always struggled with overeating icecream, so I just wouldn't eat it. Now, rather than deprive myself, I can't fit much more than a proper serving of icecream in a custard cup. Now I can enjoy my favorite treat without fear!

I've found that even though buying the pre-portioned ice cream servings from Weight Watchers, Skinny Cow, etc. is much more economical. One box of 6 bars for $5 may cost more than the $3 I'd pay for 12 servings in a half-gallon of ice cream, but those bars last 6+ days; reg ice cream lasts 2-4 days.
An ice cream serving is usually 1/2 cup. Put it into a 1/4 Measuring Cup & eat it from there. It satisfies my taste buds & tricks my fat craving demons all at the same time. If I want more, I dish up another 1/4 cup. It feels like I'm eating seconds but really it's only 1 serving
Equipment Needed: 1/4 Measuring Cup, spoon
