Making desserts for a good cause is sorta like my dream job.
No, scratch that. Eating desserts for charity is my dream job.
I’m more of a cake, frosting, and cookie fan than ice cream so I chose Cookie Dough flavor because it seemed like the best of both worlds.
In a 1/2 cup serving there’s 130 calories, 3.5 grams of fat and 3 grams of protein.
For my sundae, I wanted to keep it sorta healthy (because I wanted more than a 1/2 cup serving of ice cream) so I melted a small handful of butterscotch chips with fat free milk to make a caramel-like sauce.
2 tablespoons of butterscotch chips have 70 calories and 4 grams of fat.
And then I layered the ice cream and butterscotch sauce with fat-free whipped cream, a sprinkle of mini chocolate chips and a couple pecan pieces for a finishing touch and to pretend I was gourmet.
It was pretty righteous and not too much of a calorie bomb.
A cool-as-ice-cream thing that Dreyer’s is doing is the A Reason to Smile Program: for every ice cream smile captured in a photo and uploaded to Dreyer’s Facebook page, Slow Churned will donate $5 to Operation Smile.
By the end of the summer, the goal is to give away more than 25,000 scoops of ice cream, capture 25,000 ice cream smiles and gift 500 surgeries/smiles to children in-need.
Almost as cool as helping children in need is that right after I ate my sundae I was reading the nightly news…
And saw this:
Why wasn’t I asked to go eat ice cream in LA with Brooke?!? We would get along swimmingly, I just know it. I mean, we practically look like twin sisters already…
Dreyer’s® Slow Churned Light Ice Cream is churned slowly for all the rich & creamy taste of regular ice cream, but with half the fat and one-third fewer calories. Now that’s a reason to smile. Give a smile with Operation Smile: https://www.facebook.com/DreyersIceCream
What’s your favorite flavor of ice cream? Least favorite?
I like salted caramel, cookie dough and pistachio and my least favorite is strawberry.
