I scream...for ice cream
I have been on a serious ice cream kick lately. Could it be the humid weather outside? Most likely. It's certainly nice to cool off with such a frosty sweet treat. Still, I really need to stay away from all the dang gelato shops and ice cream parlors. Just last night, some siren (aka, my sweet tooth) lured me to Morellis Gourmet Ice Cream, where I then proceeded to inhale sweet potato pie-flavored ice cream in a sugar cone. Woof...it was delicious, oozing marshmallow and sprinkles of graham cracker. Only problem? I think it added a pound or two to my waistline. So in the interest of keeping slim, I'm going to stick to the healthier versions of my favorite summer treat. They are out there, folks! You just have to look a little bit harder. Here are a few sucralose-sweetened ice cream recipes to start you out, though.
P.S. Today is National Ice Cream Day, so it's okay if you splurge just a teensy, weensy bit.
