Beat the Heat with a *Skinny* Summer Treat
Contributed by: NAPSA
(NAPSA) - When the weather heats up, there's nothing like ice cream to soothe a sweet tooth. America is a nation of ice cream lovers-on average we consume almost a pint a week!
But if you're watching your waistline, you may have resigned yourself to settling for less-than-satisfying light ice creams, or simply doing without.
Fortunately, advances in the way ice cream is made now let you have it all. New Slow Churned(tm) Dreyer's/Edy's Grand Light(r) ice cream has the taste and texture of full-fat ice cream but with half the fat and 30 percent fewer calories (the ice cream is sold under the Dreyer's brand name in states west of the Rocky Mountains and Texas, and under Edy's brand in the remainder of the U.S.).
How do they do it? A proprietary method of blending pushes fat molecules through a very small space, stretching them out so that the ice cream tastes like it contains more fat. "If the average premium ice cream lover switched to new Slow Churned Dreyer's/Edy's Grand Light he or she could save more than 9,500 calories, 850 grams of fat and 3 pounds per year!" says registered dietitian Ellie Krieger.
Slim down your sundaes with one of these delicious combinations. Or, use your imagination to create your own signature summer sundae.
