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

1.  Cookies and Cream Milkshake - you won't believe the secret ingredient.

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.
Kim said…
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.
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.

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

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!

Maple and Brown Sugar Air Fryer Bacon

I've been raving about my Instant Pot but now I have a new favorite... the Air Fryer.  
O M G This thing is amazing!  I don't know why I was so late to the Air Fryer craze but I am so glad I am finally onboard.  

I've been talking about getting one and then after my aunt posted pics of her new air fryer, that was it off to Best Buy I went.  

I wasn't sure how big of a unit I would need but I figured the 2.5 liter would suffice.  I chose the Chefman Express.  It was priced on the shelves for $85 but online for $75.99 and my local store matched the price AND I had my Swagbucks Best Buy QR code so I got 500 SBs + 2 SBs for every dollar spent so that's another 170 SBs.  So, after discounts, my air fryer ended up costing me less than the sale price.  Woohoo!

There were some fancy ones on the shelves with digital display but after checking the reviews I figured since I don't fry much this model would suffice.
When I think of fried foods, I think of fried chicken and bacon.…

Come Out & Play BUT Let's Practice Social Distancing

Come Out & Play BUT RememberToPracticeSocialDistancing COVID-19, Coronavirus, Da Rona, whatever you're calling it has definitely changed all of our lives.  Families are spending more and more time together.  My husband teases me saying I've spent more time in the backyard since March than I have in the entire 15 years we've lived in our home.  Sad thing is... he's right.
We planted a garden.  It was kinda by chance.  I bought these seeds and this starter compost.  Put them near the kitchen and after about a week or so, I started noticing gnats in my kitchen.  I figured it was some of the fresh fruit gone bad.  Tossed the fruit. Wiped everything down.  Gnats were gone.  A few days later... the gnats returned.  FINALLY figured out it that I had this dirt near the kitchen and remembered "Oh, you were going to start gardening."  
Seeds planted.  Watered.  Now we wait.  It'll be a few weeks but I am so looking forward to cutting fresh spinach and lettuce green…

wonderFALL Giveaway Hop!

Seems like just yesterday we were chillin' in a hammock on a beach sippin' margaritas in Cozumel.  Really, I was just chillin' in a hammock on a beach sippin' margaritas in Cozumel just a couple of weeks ago and now it's Fall and it's all about the pumpkin spice.

I had to share this super easy take on the $$ pumpkin spice latte at the the ooh la la, fancy-schmancy, trendy coffee houses.  Save your money and make it at home.  Shoot, they're cheap enough you can enjoy a few of these without bustin' your budget.
