I am an "ice-cream-aholic" - however, I have learned to monitor my intake. There are lots of things I will consider an alternative for in my diet - high fiber/low carb bread, low-fat cheeses, etc… but, I will not compromise on ice-cream. For me…I am better off limiting my intake of what I really want vs. trying a lower calorie/lower sugar/lower whatever alternative.
More power to everyone…and good luck!

I definitely will give this a try. This tip was very welcome after a very down day I had yesterday. Another thought on this, remember the old Watergate Salad recipe? One container of Cool Whip (sugar-free for us), one pkg of sugar-free instant pistachio pudding, and one can of crushed pineapple in its own juice. Mix all together (including pineapple juice). Refrigerate. I haven't calculated the carbs and food exchanges as yet. Anyone out there have any suggestions on the equivalents/quantity in a serving?

Another frozen treat I like is low fat yoplait yogurt. Freeze it and it's just like ice cream and since it comes in a small cup there is no chance to over indulge.

Sounds great and anything that satisfies my sweet tooth without carbs, and is low fat, but tastes great to worth while trying!

This is a favorite of mine also. Sometimes I just buy the plain sugar free coolwhip and add prepared sugar free pudding to get the flavor I like. Then I freeze it. It is more creamy this way. BUT your way has lots less calories so it is better for us.
