The Secrets to Enjoying Ice Cream Guilt-Free

(2 Votes)


  1. Reach for a small scoop. Most brands suggest 1/2 cup as a standard serving. A lighter variety of your favorite, or even frozen yogurt, is a great option. Don't forget: There are still calories and fat in the lighter varieties.
  2. Did you know that processing frozen bananas in a food processor produces a rich and creamy ice cream-like dessert? Add other fruits, like strawberries, or even a little peanut butter for a healthy treat that will satisfy your craving. And try our Raspberry Banana Bonanza for a truly special treat! 
  3. If you're going out for ice cream, choose the kids' size to get your sweet tooth fix without breaking the calorie bank.
  4. If you're at home, try enjoying your ice cream in a small dish. It's believed that this will "trick" your mind into thinking you're eating more.
  5. Shy away from fattening toppings like chocolate candy. Fresh fruit or even sprinkles are both much lower in calories, yet they'll add something special to your creamy dessert.
  6. If you're reaching for a cone, don't go for a waffle type. Stick to a plain sugar or cake cone since they're much lower in calories. Or better yet, skip the cone completely.
  7. For your chocolate "fix," choose chocolate sauce or syrup to drizzle over ice cream and save the sinfully rich, high-calorie hot fudge for that "only-once-in-awhile" treat.

There's no need to give up our cool cravings if we use a little common sense. Sure, that way, we can still enjoy every last lick of the..."OOH IT'S SO GOOD!!"
