a break for ice cream
I know ice cream isn't a common topic on this blog, but I have to talk about Ben & Jerry's new flavors. Greek yogurt is obviously a big trend in the food world these days and it seems that the dessert giant is cashing in.
The new frozen yogurt is available in Blueberry Vanilla Dream, Strawberry Shortcake, Banana Peanut Butter and Raspberry Fudge Chunk. I'm excited to try these frozen treats because those are some of the same toppings I add to my greek yogurt snacks. There are also fewer calories and more protein in the new flavors. However, they're still pretty loaded with sugar and fat, so it's not like they're a diet food. And I doubt they taste nearly as good as my beloved Phish Food.
I've never been the kind of gal who can replace unhealthy vices. Eat an ounce of dark chocolate when I'm craving craving cake? Get real. I'd end up eating both. So I'm not sure these frozen yogurts will be my new favorite dessert, but I'm excited to have a healthier alternative... for when I'm being good.
