My seasonal allergies are starting. This is the time of year I gain weight every year because the most comforting thing for my horrible allergy attacks is ice cream. The cold is so soothing on my itchy throat, it even helps stop my running nose for a little while. And because my body spends so much energy during a reaction, I am left shaky and starving for something fatty and sweet.
So this year I am determined to find things other than ice cream that will be just as soothing during my allergy attacks. Today I mixed mushed strawberries with plain Greek yogurt and 1/4 teaspoon of local honey. I used a mini muffin pan and covered a small layer on the bottom of each cup, placed a blackberry in each cup, and filled the rest of each cup with the yogurt mix. It gave me bite- sized frozen treats that are healthy but satisfied that ice cream craving.
Does anyone else have a recipe to share for healthy ice cream alternatives?
