HA. You just thought a dietitian was about to give you permission to skip dinner, didn’t you? Actually, in this case, I almost am. Not that we ever do it (shhhhhh…).
My hubby, who is not the gifting type, really hit a home run this past Mother’s Day. He purchased what has quickly become my new obsession: an ice cream maker. I started out diligently following the recipes included in the box. But being the adventurous and health conscious chick that I am, soon went searching for better options. It wasn’t all good (actually some was pretty terrible).
But this. This is not only good. This is DROOL-worthy. Like, “quick! make more, so my kids don’t see how much I ate last night”-good.
Yes, there is sugar. A lot of it coming from vitamin-C, manganese, and fiber-rich strawberries. Other than that, it’s just a little heavy cream, water & lemon juice. Just five ingredients (and I can even pronounce them all!). So not only is it delicious, it’s also ridiculously simple.
And to me, simple is gold.
