43/365 Low-guilt dessert

Many things make me happy, but one in particular is a low-guilt dessert. And when the weather warms up, I want ice cream.

Cold, creamy, sweet ice cream.

My two latest favorites are: Skinny Cow Vanilla Sandwiches (pictured here) and Weight Watchers Giant Vanilla Sundae Cones. Yum! (Both of these I've bought from your standard grocery store. Nothing fancy.)

If you peruse the various Skinny Cow products, you'll see tons of options. I've tried the Skinny Dippers (in the Bars category), but the ice cream isn't the same as that found in the sandwiches. It's not as good. Lower calories, but not really worth it.

Another non-ice-cream favorite of mine is a chocolate Jell-o pudding cup. With some Cool-Whip on top. And if you really feel like living on the edge, sprinkle some Heath bar on top.

One thing all of these have in common that I enjoy is portion control. If you want more than a serving, you have to actually go back to the freezer (or fridge) and get another one. You can't go overboard with a too-big bowl or too-large scoops. Love that!

Is anyone else hungry now?
