Fabulous Frozen Indulgences
While it may be cooling off in your area of the country, it is still HOT, HOT, HOT in Florida. When the weather is so hot outside, it is nice to come in and cool off with a refreshing piece of fruit or frozen treat. I often crave fruit but don't always have the willpower to eat a fresh peach instead of some ice cream!
I have discovered a new frozen fave. Have you tried Gaga's Sherbet? Gaga's (named after owner's grandma) is part skim milk with a touch of cream and part real fruit puree. It is all natural with no high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors and colors and is gluten free. Every flavor is wonderful. It comes on a stick for 110 calories or in pints at 160 calories per half cup. YUMMY! You can find it at natural health food stores.
Another favorite are the Tofutti Cuties. They are lactose and dairy free, so for those of you who can't have regular ice cream, this is a way to get your ice cream sandwich again! They are 130 calories.
Last one I like is the Sambazon Acai sorbet. This is vegan (no animal/dairy) and is a frozen treat of high antioxidant acai fruit puree. Delicious!
