i love my ice cream

Sorry, Kathy, I know you are having an ice cream free day, but I just put my homemade ice cream recipe through the WW recipe builder. With whole milk and a ONE CUP serving, it's only 5 points!!!

For those of you who love ice cream like I do, you know that premium ice cream can be costly, points-wise. And that a serving is typically a half cup-YEAH RIGHT!!! I estimated my small portions (yes, I had it twice on Sunday!) as 6 points, but I was overestimating! Think I'll have to have a little more of the extra in the freezer tonight...mmmmmmm!!!

BTW, I put it through the recipe builder with 2% milk and it was still 5 points for one cup, so I'll just stick with my whole milk. I don't think I would want to go much lighter on the milk. I do like it rich and creamy!

Hi, I just stumbled apon your blog when I hit next blog, after reading my girlfriends blog. I was happy to see your success. Have you done WW with a friend, on line, or in-person meetings and weigh-ins? Is it really effective? I've been considering it for a while now, but don't know if I could do it. I'm starting at about the same weight your were at and am about the same height. I don't know if we can afford it as we are at-home missionaries but want to know if you think flex plan or core plan is better?
If you don't mind responding that would be great. I think by adding this comment you will be able to find me. If not I'll check back in to your blog and see if you added a comment. Thanks.

Mmmm Homemade ice cream!!! YUMMMM!!! How do you make it? That would be so much fun! I would dump as much chocolate as possibel in theer...brownies, smarties, peanut butter cups...now I'm craving ice cream and chocolate!!
Great job on keeping your portions in check!!

Yeah...I know how sorry you are, Mama. Homemade vanilla...love vanilla!
I made it through "No ice cream Tuesday", but I have to admit there was a point in the day that I bargained with myself that if I could just make it to midnite, I was going to have some. The feeling passed and I still haven't had any today.
And what is really funny, is that I never was a freak about ice cream until I found that Kroger brand made with Splenda and the low-fat ingredients...CRAZY!!!

Thanks for stopping by my new blog! I've been thinking about getting an ice cream maker. Call me crazy, but I think it would actually REDUCE the amount of ice cream I eat - if I make the promise that I will only eat homemade ice cream. That way, I'll have to really think about whether I want the ice cream enough to put in the effort to make it. Plus, I like being in control of the ingredients.

5 points for a cup of ice cream sounds like my kind of heaven! LOL
