Cake Batter 'Nice' Cream and 7 Other Cool Nutrisystem #NSNation Treats #ad

Ice cream, ice cream, we all scream for ice cream.
Temps have been hovering in the upper 90s and the weatherman has been telling us to be happy because we haven't "officially" hit 100 yet.  
Well, my car says different.  Got in my yesterday and saw this...
100 degrees.
Posted a pic on Facebook and my nephew, who's currently serving in Baghdad, shared a pic on Facebook of temps where he's stationed.
                        120 degrees!!!
Crazy huh?
  When it's this hot there's no better way to cool down than with bowl of ice cream. 
Now that I'm losing weight I want to keep the momentum and so I am reading labels when shopping at the grocery store and ice cream, the REAL creamy, buttery smooth ice cream I love is soooooooo... off limits.
  This is the first time in a long time that I have weighed in the '50s and I am on track to be in the 40s by the end of July. 
  Let's be honest who hasn't bought a pint of ice cream with the intention of eating one serving and ended up devouring the entire pint?  *raises hand
 Here's your guilt-b-gone.  Check out these frozen treat ideas I found on The Leaf.
1.  Cookies and Cream Milkshake - you won't believe the secret ingredient.
2.  Cake Batter nICE Cream - great way to enjoy Vanilla TurboShake

Been so hot and humid last few weeks. Ice cream is always a treat and we have been eating a ton of ice cream.

We have too Candy. The humidity is ridiculous. Loving the nICE cream. All the goodness of ice cream without the calories means I can keep losing weight while enjoying a tasty treat.

Goodness gracious and I here I have been complaining about our 100 degree weather. If it was that hot here I would probably live in the fridge and eat this delicious cake batter ice cream!

I would love any of this. Ice cream makes me happy when it's hot. Cake batter ice cream is one of my favorites!

We've had a moderate summer here in Michigan but I certainly wouldn't pass up some "nice" cream. 120 degrees is insane heat, my husband served in the Gulf and can definitely relate.

I could not live without ice cream. I've had it as a meal sometimes in the summer. Halo Top is really good...low calorie, high protein.

Ice cream is a must on a hot day, but yes, it's not good if you're counting calories. That "nice" cream made with yogourt sounds like a healthy alternative.

Ooh i love these ideas. I used to be on Nutrisystem 4-5 years ago and never thought of blending the orange cream bar with ice for a slushee drink! And the spinach? WOW! Awesome.
Nancy Lustri said…
Ooooh....Now that is hot, hot, hot! You're lucky to have found nICE cream to keep you cool. The flavors look fantastic, too! I've never tried Nutrisystem before, but have had several friends have great success with it.
We are big ice cream fans, we love it year round. I've never seen spinach and ice cream together before!

I just recently learned about nice cream. I'm in love, seriously. SO good.
Holy cow! 120 is insanely hot! Nice cream would definitely be in order. The salted caramel and mint chocolate chip flavors sound really good.

Summer does have its benefits like these amazing coolers. Vanilla Turbo shake is my favourite and I would love to binge on it.
Joanna Brittain said…
Frozen treats are one of our favorite ways to cool off lately. Wow, I don't think I'll be complaining about our temperatures here anymore!

I am an ice cream lover, but vanilla only. I just picked up two containers last night because it's on sale this week. Score! We are having a Sundae bar after family dinner tonight.
Love these milkshake ideas - never thought of cottage cheese and the Nutrisystem idea - fab!!

I've been adding plain sheep's yogurt for protein and probiotics
Eloise Maoudj said…
wow! it never really gets THAT hot out in MN, thank goodness! I don't know much about the Nutirsystem, but I DO love a nice cooling treat to cap-off a hot day... yum!
I, too love ice cream and can't just eat one! Thank you for this incredibly helpful list of ice cream options Also, just by discussion, I am much more award of the dessert pitfalls of regular ice cream..like I wasn't really reading the lablels!
At first when I saw 120 degrees I thought what in the world???? Then realized it was Fahrenheit and not like Celsius like we use here. I love Ice Cream so much and could eat so many different flavours!

Life is a Beach Giveaway Hop

Spring is in full swing.  The birds are singin'.  The pollen is falling and temps are FINALLY warming up.  So what better time time to start planning our Summer getaways.

This year - as always - we are beach bound.  It's one of our fave places to visit given we only get to the beach once or twice a year.  

Last year's visit to Cozumel was one for the record books. We stopped by this little restaurant and dined on grilled shrimp in a cabana right on the beach.  
'Ohana also has a line of tequilas in flavors I had never seen before.  Tropical flavors such as coconut, mango and pina colada.  Hubby and I tried the 'Ohana peanut butter tequila.  The owner said folks either love it or hate it... we LOVED it!!!
As I was sipping all I could think of was how good this peanut butter tequila would taste as a baste on my tequila wings.  It would be like a tequila satay wings type dish.

OH! The Places You'll Go! Giveaway Hop + 7 Out of the Box Uses for Erasers

Another Summer has come and gone and it's time to head Back to School!  

If you're anything like me you took advantage of all those Back to School deals and stocked up on all those back to school deals and now have a surplus of school supplies which will probably end up in a junk drawer or put away someplace where you will never find it when you need it.

Take for instance those pink erasers.  I buy a pack every year and every year without fail my family gives me that look when they see that pack of lone erasers in the back to school shopping cart.

Here are a few of my favorite ways to use erasers around the house

Erase away scuffs on your kitchen floor with an eraser.  

Easily remove your kid's pop-up crayon masterpiece from the walls with an eraser. 

Remove stains from suede boots by gently brushing the eraser across the stain until it's gone.

Keep those tickling ivory piano keys nice and clean by erasing stains with one quick swipe.

Stubborn zippers loosen quickly by rubbing…
