I wish I could find something to replace an ice cream sundae. When it is hot over the weekend, the urge to splurge at Brewster's is overwhelming. Any suggestions?Cool

hmm, I want to know too lol. i guess there's always fat-free yogurt... lol

I learned this from danainaz: what I really like to eat now to get rid of sugar cravings is sugar-free jello & cool-whip. cool whip has just 15 cals for 2 tbsp (though I use less lol) and the jello cups only have 10 cal each.

I don't know if you knew this or not, but it's worth sharing in rejoicing in the wonders of jello anyway, I think. Smile

I like a sugar free fudgesicle (sometimes 2) mixed together with a teaspoon of chunky peanut butter. Its such a treat and doesn't taste diety at all!

Does it have to be icecream?

What I do is have a fatfree coolwhip and slice up strawberries, some blueberries and mix in a small bowl and that usually takes care of my cravings for "sugar".

Also a bowl of cereal works GREAT. Its MUCH better than icecream anyway!

Sugarfree/Fatfree icecream bars works well.

One of my favorites: fatfree coolwhip, half banana sliced up and a spoonful of peanut butter and a drizzle of sugarfree chocolate!

My fix is lemon sorbet, chocolate sprinkles in a cone. It always his the spot and, I don't feel quilty about it later. Also, Weight Watchers and Skinny Cow make some GREAT treats.

I know one that I love but it depends on what kind of diet plan you follow. I do the 9th Law plan which is mainly focused on protein, good fat, and cutting out all negative carbs. However, the professor who made the plan gave a great recipe for sweet splurge. Take 1/4 cup cottage cheese, 1 egg, 1/4 cup light cream cheese, 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream. Then add 6 splenda and blend with 6 ice cubes in the blender. Delicious!!! THe whole shake only has maybe 6 or 8 carbs and if you need something sweet it really hits the spot and cures your sweet tooth

I have realized anything with "lite" "sugar-free" "fat-free" is a scam. You eat and you get calories. Period.

However if you do want to indulge (once in a while) try going for an Italian Gelato Ice-cream instead. At about 120-150 calories its not so bad:

I actually enjoy light ice cream almost every night. But, I plan for it so I don't feel guilty eating it and I enjoy it as a nice treat. My favorite is Edy's Grand Light French Silk. I put it in a sugar cone (50 cal. for the cone) just over the edge, about 1/2 cup in all. It's about 4 WW points. It's very good and feels indulgent but yet not so terrible. Just watch the portion size.

How about a Sorbe? It is made with fruit rather than cream, or how aout a small portion of Sherbert? Carful though cuz it has more calories than one would think!

Yoplait Source yogurt has a variety pack of dessert yogurts. OMG!they are so tasty! Not sure how they relate to ice cream, but they are my sweet fix. Flavors are Lemon Merague(sp?), Cranberry Raspberry Crumble, Strawberry...something, and Cherry Delight. The first 2 are my favorites.

Thank you everyone! I'll have to try some of your ideas. I can't tolerate sugar substitutes as they seem to give me sores in my mouth but some of the low fat ideas will work maybe. I'm developing a taste for greek yogurt with fresh fruit that seems to satisfy pretty well.

I'm a huge ice cream junky...I love it soo much! You could say its my kind of crack...lol. For my new years resolution I swore off ALL sweets for a month...and I found that I was able to get my "ice cream fix" by putting a yogurt in the freezer like a hour or so before I ate it. Because it was frozen I ate it slower...Anyways. Thats what I do.(:
