Summer Treats.

There is nothing better than a big scoop of ice cream on a hot summer day. From popsicles, to ice cream cones, parfaits and banana splits, there is no doubt that in some form, shape or way, ice cream will make a cameo during the summertime.

Where does that leave us dieters?!?

Well, while browsing the ice cream freezers in the store, I came across a healthier option!

Nestlé has a new variant for the health conscious: Fruit Selections Yogurt Ice Cream. If you like their fruit selection yogurt cups, then this is something you definitely will enjoy! I used to buy the regular yogurt, stick it in the freezer and wait for it to harden then eat it like ice cream...but not anymore! The yogurt ice cream comes in two equally delicious flavors, strawberry and mango. What I like about the yogurt ice cream over the yogurt that is frozen is that the ice cream has the consistency of real ice cream, unlike the yogurt which sometimes is not as smooth as real ice cream.

With only 85 calories per serving, this is definitely a treat one won't feel guilty indulging in! Nestlé Fruit Selection Yogurt comes in three sizes/styles: ice cream on a stick ( approx. Php 15.00), single serve cups (Php 25.00) and pints (Php 135.00). It is a bit difficult to find in the typical grocery, however, but it is (supposedly) exclusively available at Mercury Drug store.

Another alternative is this:
A O% fat, no sugar added ice cream by Nestlé as well. I got the vanilla flavor because it was the only one available then, but I think there are other flavors like mangoes and cream and ube. To be honest, however, I did not like it so much. There was something different about the consistency of the ice cream, which I suppose is due to the fact that it was fat-free. It seemed to have lost its smooth, creamy ice cream quality. However, I used it as a base for my banana smoothie, and it was great.

So here's to a cool, yummy summer with less calories!
