Summer = Ice Cream? or Does It?
While ice cream offers one option for a delicious frozen treat, is it really ice cream you want? If you read the labels of many commercial "ice creams," dairy/cream components seem to be lower on the list of ingredients than cheaper artificial or 'natural' additives. The calorie-per-serving count of many dairy-based ice creams is often enough to make us rethink our craving.

It Summer! There is no need to deprive yourself of a frozen delight. Perhaps it is just time to consider a healthier frozen treat for the more sophisticated palette!
