Chocolate Cherry Ice Cream - No bananas or dairy needed for this sweet and creamy blender ice cream! This makes a delicious and healthy treat, especially for kids!
The other day, I noticed a commercial for Cindy Crawford's skin care line.
Two pictures of Cindy, side by side, insinuating that her implied youthful appearance is the result of the her multi-step regime.
Now, I'm no expert on skin care, or anything, really, but it appears to me that Miss Crawford may have dabbled in some plastic surgery.
I say this not to judge, but rather wondering, do these products really do what they're purporting or are other factors involved?
In a similar vein, I find it odd when commercials for mascara are played, and the super tiny script on the bottom of the screen reads something to the effect of 'model is wearing lash inserts'.
Ice cream or ice dream?
Relatedly, I recently read an exchange on another food blog where a reader was upset with the blogger's proclamation that a particular treat was 'guilt-free'.
The recipe did have good amounts of fat and sugar, but from the author's point of view, it was a 'healthy', 'guilt-free' dessert for the diet she ate.
Honestly, I see the perspectives of both parties. What's guilt-free for one person may be another's poison, and what I may find delicious, you may think is disgusting. Perception is reality, for some!
If Cindy is a fan of surgical enhancements, she may not think it has anything to do with her products, and Cover Girl may just want to drive home that their mascara is that dramatic.
This leads me directly into my recipe today, which is obviously not true ice cream by most people's perception. For our family, however, it's just as delicious and far 'healthier', I'll venture to say!
I often give this to my girls, and they love it! Though it's not cream, sugar, and eggs, I think you'll find this alternative scrumptious in its own right and deserving of the title 'ice cream'.
