Great recipes every day.

85 calorie Ice Cream: no machine necessary!

Shut the front door! 85 calorie ice cream? Yes! No stupid appliance that I will rarely use cluttering up my cabinets? Yes! Well, then let’s do this. This summer is going to be all about 85 calorie ice cream.

As soon as I saw this video, I made the strawberry version. Partly because I always have frozen strawberries, yogurt, and honey on hand, and partly because I am obsessed with strawberries. So, thank you, Hungry Gypsy, for my new favorite strawberry treat!

Seriously, I’m nearly crying at the calorie count. Answered prayers for my sweet tooth, which I refer to as the brazen hussy that won’t quit!

Tip Time!

No tips to make this 85 calorie ice cream better or easier because this recipe is so good and so easy. Seriously, if I can’t complete these easy steps then I do not deserve ice cream. But, if you’re looking for popsicle molds, try these…

Or these little cuties if you don’t have a lot of room in your freezer…

And, if you need a new food processor, mine rocks my world. Or, rather, my Oster Food Processor mixes, chops, slices, and minces up my world nicely. Real nice.


Happy eating, my friends!
