I’m still working on shedding those last few pounds I’m still carrying from having Huff the Babe (yes, he’s two and a half; no, I don’t think I should have lost this a long time ago) but it gets a little frustrating to stay within my macros–especially in the summer heat–when I just really want some ice cream to chow down and cool off. Thankfully, I found a great dessert that won’t bust my macros and actually tastes good!

I found this delicious dessert from the site Hip 2 Keto, which has a ton of Keto Diet-friendly recipes and food ideas! Here’s what the recipe called for:

1 cup heavy whipping cream

1 tablespoons almond butter

2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

5 drops liquid Stevia (I would actually use Splenda; the Stevia didn’t “sweeten” it that much and it was a wee bit bitter)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

 

First, mix up all the ingredients in a small bowl until soft peaks form. This took me about 2-3 minutes.

 

Then, place your mixture in the freezer for about 30 minutes to an hour. You want it to be *just* on the edge of freezing without being completely frozen. Then, remove from the freezer, stir, and place your mixture into a gallon size, zip top bag. Cut the corner off and pipe the frozen treat into three cups, distributing evenly.

Then, enjoy!

This was pretty good! It was a little bitter for my taste, but Huff the Hubs really liked it! I added some fat free whipped topping to mine and it helped the taste IMMENSELY! If you’re wondering, here are the nutrition facts for the “frosty”:

Happy Friday, everyone! The first week of December is already in the books and we’re so much closer to Christmas! Eeee! And, to celebrate, I found some awesome nerdy nifties to make your weekend start off with a bang!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters in TWO weeks, people. TWO WEEKS! And everyone is feeling the force! Including Ample Hills Creamery outside of Brooklyn, NY.

They have two new ice cream flavors to celebrate the newest Star Wars film: Light Side and Dark Side. Light Side is made up of marshmallow ice cream with homemade crispie clusters and a dash of cocoa crispies (this, according to the creamery, “represents the dark side still lurking within the light”). The Dark Side is dark chocolate ice cream with fudge brownies, cocoa crispies, and white chocolate sprinkles to “represent the light still hiding within the dark, waiting to burst through.”

 

 

There have been so many great songs to come out of 2015 and DJ Earworm has done it again by releasing his latest mash-up of the year’s best songs! Check it out!

 

So, I wasn’t really into the whole Pokemon thing (it was a little after my time…I was more of a Pogs girl) but even I have to admit that this next find is super cool! A real-life Pokemon gym opens in Osaka, Japan this month!

Pixar/Toy Story‘s 20th anniversary was this week and they wanted everyone to basically fall into a pit of sadness and nostalgia when they posted this beautiful video to celebrate! Get the tissues ready!

 

 

Happy fangirling!
