    A serving of Talenti is about 200-210 calories. I'd rather work that into my day and enjoy the hell out of it than eat frozen mashed bananas and try and tell myself it's ice cream. I don't think then Ben and Jerry's FroYo is much less caloricly than the Talenti and the Sicilan Pistachio is amazing (and oh so worth the calories).
    I'll try to find this branch in the supermarket thank you

    I have Braums frozen chocolate frozen yogurt soft serve in a small waffle cone once a week. Their website puts it at 245 but I over estimate and stick it at 300 because lets face it, it's too damn good and sometimes those girls put what feels like a whole lot more than 5 oz of soft serve.

    My bf and I do the frozen banana smoothies every couple of weeks when my ice cream craving gets too far. we share 4 oz of banana, 2 oz frozen mango chunk, half tbsp creamy peanut butter, 2 oz fresh chopped strawberry (somewhere in there) A heaping tablespoon of baking cocoa powder (unsweetened), and 3 tbsp of organic vanilla soy milk.

    I'm one of the guilty ones that I don't weigh my peanut butter so I could have a goof in there somewhere but splitting that amount between us is around 155 cal each. (allotting for peanut butter)
    We like the frozen fruit smoothies.

    Mix it up with different frozen fruits, more or less peanut butter or cocoa powder. It's not the same thing but it's still good.

    For real ice cream, fit it into your calorie goals. Life changes in eating shouldn't mean restriction, just moderation.

    Just eat ice cream. You're not lactose intolerant (or vegan), so there's no reason to avoid dairy. The Dreyers/Edys Slow Churned ice cream has pretty decent macros, and it's not made out of freaking bananas.
    Thank you, and yes im sick of bananas im fooling myself freezing some mashed banana and pretending that i am eating icecream

    Here is a link to an ice cream discussion and group is in the thread. There's a lot of successful MFPers who enjoy ice cream and gelato in moderation (amongst other things). Check it out here: http://community.myfitnesspal.com/en/discussion/10113051/join-the-gelato-and-ice-cream-group

    No mush bananas and Artic Zero allowed.

    Is there any healthy icecream recipe that doesn't contain cream or any dairy products?

    No...because minus cream/dairy, it's not ice cream.

    Which, at least for me, means more than the actual serving size listed on the nutrition label, because 64 grams of ice cream is a freaking joke. I eat at least 100 grams as my "serving," but I prefer 150 grams if I can fit it into my macros.

    No im not , but adding cream to fruits adds more calories

    More calories does not = unhealthy, and I find it's not too difficult to save room for a serving of ice cream (200-250 calories, as others have said).

    That said, have you tried sorbets? I think they are delicious also.

    Try sorbets. They're typically dairy free, mostly fruit based. But they will have sugar to help control the frozen texture.

    Or just make room in your daily calorie allowance for a small serving of whatever you want. Someone on here suggested Snickers ice cream bars recently and they're awesome and only 190 calories per bar.

    Yes! It's not ice cream, but sorbet is delicious if you want a lower calorie frozen treat. A whole pint of Haagen dasz raspberry sorbet is 480 calories. I split one with my boyfriend so that's only 240 calories, easy enough to save that many cals for my treat!
