A heat wave is coming! A heat wave is coming! Have you guys seen the new Fiat commercial when the somehow years younger “Paul Revere”-esque twenty something yells out the trade mark phrase, “The British are coming!”.Well in the case of us here in the great PNW, it’s the heat, not the British that are upon us and it shows no signs of slowing. Devouring frozen things on a stick seems like a pretty reasonable way to beat the heat, doesn’t it? You can’t have summer without ice cream, it is fact. The two are synonymous with one another. But what’s not usually synonymous with copious amounts of ice cream is looking good in a bikini, or in my case, a bridesmaids dress next weekend! *Cue panic* Can we catch a break? Please. Finally, dare I say, we might have? *GASP!*
For the next week, I’m baking cakes, whipping up custards, making batch upon batch of cream cheese frosting – all in the name of friendship – but I can already feel a detox coming on. But the end of an epic baking weekend, I can feel and smell the sugar coming out of my pores. HALP! But even if I’m burned out on cakes and frostings, I can’t turn away from ice cream. Can’t possibly. I just need a healthier and less guilty version. Who doesn’t?
These sweet cream and raspberry pudding pops are sugar free, gluten free, high in protein and fiber and they still taste ring in at only 75 calories. Let me say it again – 75 calories. Adding a couple scoops of Sweet Cream Vi-shape shake mix to the sugar free pudding, really amped up the lean protein content, and the added fiber makes these satisfying to your sweet tooth and help keep your case of the hungries at bay.
Even Ben was all over these pops. I only got one bite in while he was busy taste testing!
Hello Bikini, it’s nice to wear you again! And in my case, Hello bridesmaid’s dress!
