    I'm an ice cream junkie too! Anything with chocolate or caramel......

    When I want to keep it healthy, I put a frozen banana and 1tablespoon cacao powder in a blender. Depending on the blender, add a bit of water or almond milk for better blending.

    You'd be amazed how yummy that is! If you don't care for chocolate, add other berries or even some peanut butter.

    Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches! They are 150 calories for one sandwich and they are HUGE! I am full after eating one and almost always can squeeze it into my day :)

    YES!!! It is the BOMB.COM

    Make your own.

    Seriously.

    It is hands down the best ice cream out there AND you get to control what you put in it.

    I bought the ice cream attachment for my stand mixer and my husband and I have been making and freezing all kinds of flavors of ice cream. We made a few batches of mint chocolate chip. We infused the milk with real, crushed up mint. Peanut butter, coffee/Kahlua/toffee, blueberry . . . going to make another batch of peanut butter some time this week and a plain ol' vanilla. It's super easy and cheaper than the store bought. Plus you get a true gallon of ice cream.

    Oh man, this reminded me that we got the ice cream attachment for my mixer for our wedding and have yet to use it!
    Forget Publix, I'm making ice cream tonight!

    I complain about making hard boiled eggs, so this is definitely not happening.

    This made me laugh! :laugh:

    My husband is obsessed with making ice cream and we've only eaten the peanut butter flavor and the first test batch of mint chocolate chip. :laugh:

    We also have a vacuum sealer so we put it in a zip lock bag, let it harden then vacuum seal it.

    A vacuum sealer is a great idea! We've been talking about getting a chest freezer because we keep running out of room. Maybe stock piling ice cream will be what pushes us over the edge! :happy:

    The best thing about the No-Sugar Added ice cream is that if you eat too much of it the Sorbitol they use as a sweetener it will make sure you never do it again.

    LOL .. do you mean because the sugar alcohol can act as a laxative? 1/2 cup isn't SO bad tho..

    I eat the real deal (no low cal, low fat ice cream for me) and toss some yummy chocolate chips on top, because they are tasty!

    I love ice cream, but it's hard for me to not put away the whole pint. I've been eating sorbet here lately instead. I can have a whole lot more for fewer calories, and I prefer the fresher taste of it anyway.

    Ben & Jerry's Phish Food is my favorite.

    Phish Food is amazing. It's got everything--chocolate, gooey caramel and marshmallow ribbons, chocolate fish... mmmm.

    Well Talenti is my favorite but I typically don't have that many calories to spend on ice cream... especially as it's hard to stop at one serving.

    Talenti is tops, Graeters, Ben and Jerry's has some good ones but when I'm on a budget (lately because I eat pints), Edy's has some nice flavors too. Smores, cookie dough, I'm looking for the pumpkin pie one right now... I love ice cream. Even in weight loss I'd have a few servings at night. It was worth it

    I eat ice cream most days. I'd say it's my favorite food, but I'd say that about pizza and cheese too.

    For daily consumption: Edy's Slow Churned (usually Peanut Butter Cup) or, my favorite slow churned, Hood's Under the Stars. Yum.

    If I have extra calories, Ben & Jerry's Chubby Hubby. So damn good.

    FYI: Blue Bell just released a new flavor called Malt Shoppe. It's fantastic.
