"Ice cream" revelation!

Sunday, February 10, 2013

I'm afraid this isn't one of those insightful blogs full of wisdom and perspective...just so you know.

My greatest temptation to overdo is ice cream, and often it's the entree into more overdoing, so I've been avoiding it. emoticon

But today I found something that scratches whatever that itch is JUST as well as the full fat premium denizon of the freezer case, at least for me. It's super simple, just good Greek yogurt (I used non-fat) and frozen mango chunks! I find that half a cup of each really does satisfy me, and I'm thrilled by this little victory. One challenge and one trigger at a time, right?

    Sounds good, must try it sometime. There is a recipe on Spark recipes for making ice cream with frozen bananas. I haven't tried it but it sounds good.

    I too am an absolute ice cream addict and I do give in. But I know one way that I can safely have it, is by going to MacDonald's and enjoying just one cone...

    good idea with mango and greek yogurt... A little thing I do is mix together a 35 cal yogurt with a 5 cal jello and another one is 1/3 cup bran buds with a 35 cal. yogurt and some crushed pineapple (13 g. of fibre, crunchy and filling)

    Oh, good for you! I love greek yogurt with all kinds of things. I never thought of it as an ice cream replacement. Anything that takes care of the craving in a good way is always a good thing. I am proud of you!! emoticon emoticon
