Nothing tastes better on a hot summer day than a cool dish of ice cream or a refreshing frozen popsicle! Unfortunately, these tasty summer treats aren’t exactly what we’d call “nutritious.” They’re usually high in calories, sugar, and saturated fats – making them a poor snack choice.
However, there are some terrifically tasty alternatives to the average cup of high-fat, high-calorie ice cream. With just a couple of hours and a few fresh ingredients, anyone can create a brand-new cool-down dish this summer!Standard ice cream was originally made from cream, milk, and sometimes eggs and fruit. But as demands for cheaper, lower-fat ice cream varieties have increased, so have the length of ingredients lists. Take a look at your favorite tub of ice cream and you’ll likely see ingredients such as palm oil, modified corn starch, cellulose gum, sucralose, and “modified milk ingredients.” Cut out the processed junk and make your own summer treat! You could use so many different ingredients to make your own ice cream, frozen yogurt, or fresh fruit pops, but a few favorites are yogurt, Greek yogurt, low-fat cow’s milk, coconut milk, almond milk, soy milk, cottage cheese, fresh fruits and veggies, nuts or nut butters and honey.
