Inspiring healthier eating one dish at a time

Healthier Ice Creams And Frozen Treats

So it’s official. I saw my first scorpion in the back yard, and I spent about an hour and a half at the Arizona Department of Motor Vehicles to get my new plates and driver’s license, so I’m officially a resident! I’m also happy (not) to report that I got into my first argument with my local cable and internet company. I was so looking forward to a company that truly valued its customers, but I guess they’re all the same…

Despite the trials and tribulations of moving and setting up a whole new life, I’m really enjoying the hot, sunny weather and especially the breathtaking views around every corner in this part of the country. The people are so friendly, and get this… They all come to a complete stop at a 4-way stop sign.  You have lots to learn, Boston!  I think I’m gonna love it here!

The weather in Arizona has made me hungry for a cold treat – AKA ice cream, sorbet, popsicles, etc., so it’s time for a recipe round-up ~ just in time for Labor Day, and  pre-pumpkin season, let me introduce you to some of my favorite “Healthier Ice-Cream Treats”. Please note that real ice cream may not be the healthiest food, but we know that I love everything in moderation, and making it yourself means all natural ingredients, and the ability to use lots of fresh, late summer fruit – or even vegetables.


So, grab your ice cream maker, because here are a few of my favorite frozen treats from around the web. And, you’re welcome!

    Love your healthier frozen treat post- especially because I’m a healthy foodie with a weakness for ice cream :). I thought you might be interested in learning about Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit Co., a health and allergy conscious frozen dessert and specialty food company based out of Union Square.
