Well, if I want ice cream, then I have ice cream --- either homemade or one of the higher quality / minimal ingredient commercial versions.

For an enjoyable cold snack, I purchase minimal ingredient frozen yogurt bars.

For a homemade healthy cold snack or dessert, the frozen banana option (with or without other frozen fruits / berries, and / or some cocoa or nut butter or other flavourings) can be great for those who can handle the carbs.

For those who prefer lower carb, then using avocado instead of the banana with some cocoa and / or nut butters and maybe a few berries can be just as enjoyable. Mixing it with some plain yogurt and some chia or flaxseed (see any of the gazillion options for flaxseed or chia "pudding") and then freezing it makes for a great healthy option.

Sir Terry Pratchett: "Science is not about building a body of known 'facts'. It is a method for asking awkward questions and subjecting them to a reality-check, thus avoiding the human tendency to believe whatever makes us feel good."

"The Inuit Paradox" ( discovermagazine.com/2004/oct/inuit-
paradox
): "...there are no essential foods—only essential nutrients. And humans can get those nutrients from diverse and eye-opening sources. "

Nice cream.
My version is banana, vanilla, coffee powder and occasionally cocoa powder.
Or banana and berries.
For company, I add some sweetener.


Wake up every day knowing you make the decision to begin your journey anew.

This choice in this moment defines now.
What is your now?

I make berry “ice cream”. I use frozen berries, partially thawed blended up with some banana.

I’ll mix up a big batch and freeze in 1/2 cup portions.

Personally, I don't find anything wrong with real ice cream....just a proper serving of it, which can be the challenge. Once in a blue moon, I will treat myself to a banana split from Dairy Queen. On the annual Miracle Treat Day, where a portion of proceeds go to the Children's Miracle Network, I get a blizzard. I have learned I really can't keep it in the house because I overeat it.
