Beat the heat, have blueberries for a treat! We are not an ice cream family! In fact after 11 years of marriage, we bought our first ice cream scooper this year (you know, for when guests come of course). However, in my college years I sure liked frozen yogurt. The I started reading in the comments how everyone loves blueberries these days, I decided to get some vanilla frozen yogurt to put on top of some blueberries. I read there was a surplus of blueberries this year in the northwest, but blueberry prices sure haven’t gotten better in Utah. So we are still buying them frozen. Some frozen varieties are better than others, sweeter you know.
I’ve always counseled people to be cautious of ice cream portions. 1 serving of ice cream is only 1/2 cup. And 1/2 cup on the container of ice cream I was reading the label for said it was 300 calories and 20 grams of fat. For all the people that pile their bowl full of ice cream…I can literally see the arteries clogging by the minute. The frozen yogurt on the other hand had 200 calories for 1/2 cup and 4.5 grams of fat. Not only that, but I prefer using a melon baller and having the “ice cream” as a compliment to the dish, rather than it being the “main course”
