summers are so hot in Georgia you just don't feel like drinking milk. Great way to get your calcium and cool off at the same time. Thanks Read More

Delicious...BUT... This is definitely a simple and quick recipe but why on earth would you recommend using fat free and low fat dairy products? That is so disgusting! It's not the fat that makes US fat it's the sugar! Pros: Simple and yummy Cons: Non-fat....really people?!? Read More

sounds great except the sugar (or artificial sweetners flavors colors) from the 'lite' ice cream cancel out anything remotely healty from those cherries. what's the solution? Well... nix the ice cream & just do the cherries vanilla bean organic heavy cream (or half n half) with agave nectar! Now thats gooood!! Read More

Anything w/cherries and real vanilla is awesome! However I would do a couple of substitutes instead of a cup of reduced fat vanilla ice cream do 1/2 cup of premium reduced fat ice cream 1 cup of vanilla greek yogurt and delicious vanilla almond milk instead of cows milk! Yummers! Read More
