What Do You Eat For a Frozen Treat?

On a hot day, a frozen treat hits the spot. There are so many tasty options, and so many of them are decadent — which of course brings up the health dilemma. So, do you indulge in ice cream, or choose lite? Do you eat a bit of sorbet or make your own fruit juice popsicles? Or do you just avoid sweet frozen treats altogether and go for a frozen margarita?

Frozen Yogurt! I make my own wicked tasty, good for ya frozen yogurt, and it is sooo good! I often mix in fruit or other things and with fruit mixed in, it is actually good nutrition wise because I control the amount of sugar and fat in it, and just use a plug in ice cream/frozen dessert maker. I love iced treats and making them myself is a way to ensure I can have some almost daily and not have to worry about it screwing up my diet :)

There are these great new popsicles at my local coop. They're called frosteas and frostbites. They are all natural, sweetened only with honey. I love them and so do the kids. The best part? Only like 40 calories.

I eat whatever I want whenever, but I'm lactose intolerant, and ice cream gets old fast for me. Like, whenever I buy a small carton of Ben & Jerry's, I'll eat half of it, and the rest will just get frostbitten. I could probably eat half a carton in one sitting, but then, I won't touch ice cream for another six months. I love the thought of it, though, and I tell people I love ice cream, but...I definitely only eat one to one and a half cartons a year.

well, i have a complicated love affair with ice cream. I tend to steer away from ice cream because its usually loaded with corn syrup, and corn syrup usually comes from GMO corn. but, if im gonna go for the gold (and trust me, i do quite frequently) i usually opt for breyers fat free chocolate because even though its not all natural like other breyers types, it wont completely ruin the fact that i work out to stay in shape and feel my best. plus, its so creamy and decadent that it satisfies me wholly. ive never tasted something so rich thats fat free, and with 4 grams of fiber per serving, to boot!

I like frozen blueberries (or other fruit) covered with coconut milk. The coconut milk gets all frozen yogurty and wonderful. And hey, no dairy for you people who can't do dairy. It's so good I actually ate this nearly everyday since before last Christmas, right up until fresh blueberries came into season. No way I'm eating frozen if there are fresh berries to be found. No freakin' way. But it's a good way to make smoothies, too, the frozen fruit & coconut milk combo...

I like to make slushies out of crushed ice, a pack of Crystal Lite ToGo, and some Fresca. If I'm in the mood, I'll throw a little vodka in it too...yummy AND refreshing!

harmony yogurt with fruit topping! harmony is nonfat, plain organic frozen yogurt (a la pinkberry, but it's actually yogurt, lol). it's so good and it satisfies that craving without adding lots of calories. it's actually good for you!

Ice cream is my favorite treat! I usually eat light/fat free versions when I really want some, otherwise just to cool off I'd rather eat a 100% fruit juice popcicle.

Ice cream makes me so incredibly sick. I'm lactose intollerant. Just the thought of what I feel like after eating ice cream is enough to make me steer clear. But I do like tofutti "ice cream" sandwiches. And I love, love, love frozen mango chucks from trader joes. Mmmmmm

If I'm out I may have a frozen margarita or gelato, if I'm in I may have soy ice cream/sorbet or I'll pop my soy yogurt in the freezer.

I make some homemade ice cream every once in a while. Not light by any standard, but at least I know what I'm putting into it. And it's just so much more delicious and creamy. Mmmmmm.

sometimes i allow my craving for ice cream to take over - but i try not to do that too often cause it irritates my stomach (yes TMI). i like sorbet cause of the tang, and sometiems i'll even go for a margarita - but oh well...everyone's got their vice right?

I let myself have ice cream again recently and got acne out of it. I normally like things like watermelon mixed in the blender with juice from a lime which I freeze. I also like some of the weight watchers treats I've tried. We currently have Italian ices in the house and I was happy to see it wasn't like the ones I would have when I was little that were really sugary on the bottom. I hated the sugary part.

I remember reading somewhere on the Runners World website that a guy ran 12 miles a day just so he could eat an entire (yes, entire) gallon of ice cream. I do not love ice cream or running that much, so I settle for a much reduced version of that story :)
