Ice Cream Recipe anyone?

This is my plea for help... My name is Dani, and I'm an Ice Cream addict... ("Hello Dani..")

ok enough silliness... This is a serious problem! Maybe not serious in competition to most current world issues, but still something I'd like to take care of. It's still summer time, and I'd still eat ice cream for dessert 4-5 days a week if I could. (I don't by the way)

Does anyone have any good recipes that either mock up, approximate, or turn into good ice cream with the wave of a magic wand? I'd love to be able to enjoy a creamy treat once in a while that won't leave me pondering a way to widen my doorways.

Not really a receipe

But I love Weight Watchers Big Chocolate Ice Cream bars, they are just 1 point each and curb my desire for ice cream.

My best advise is to cheat some when you need to. Try not to keep ice cream in the house so you don't eat it daily, but also don't completely deny your cravings give in, maybe treat yourself once a week.

When I'm really craving something good, I take the kids to McDonalds and have my salad with Balsamic Vinagrette Dressing because it's good and super low in calories then treat myself to a Dairy Queen CheeseQuake blizzard. The salad is 300 total calories and the Ice Cream is 530 which is only 830 total which isn't completely horrible for a meal that I feel I completely got to cheat, especially if I was good an really limited snacking that day.

Oh and when you do feel like cheating look at labels and Nutrition info. I love Dairy Queen Blizzards but generally get the chocolate chip cookie dough until I realized that a small cookie dough is 720 calories which a small cheesequake is 530. I enjoy the cheesequake just as much, feel just as satisfied with my cheat and still save almost 200 calories.

Find the nutritional information for local soft-serve places near you, particularly any "health stores" that have soft serve. There's a health food/supplement store around the corner form my apartment that also serves soft-serve (vanilla, chocolate, and 2 flavors that change daily), and they advertise that it's only 10 cals per ounce! A "child" size is only 3oz, and a "small" (which is huge b/c it's so sweet) is 5oz. So, I can be sickeningly full of ice cream for 50 cals, which is the same as one oreo!

ice cream

I make sorbet with fresh fruit and use in an icecream maker, or you can freeze. make a simple syrup - 1 cup sugar to 1 cup water, boil for 5 minutes, then let cool. Put your fruit (canteloupe is an excellent choice, as are blueberries, or strawberries), in a food processor, add a lemon or lime (peeled is best), then process until smooth. Add simple syrup and process again. If you have an ice cream maker, use that, if not, put in a glass dish or anything else to hold it all, put in freezer, until frozen around edges, put back into food processor and process again, then refreeze and eat! Yum Yum. 1 cup of sugar seems like alot but if you only eat a small portion at a time, it doesn't add up to much and it's NO FAT and is fruit!
