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 
Cake Batter nICE Cream
3.  Salted Caramel nICE Cream - lots of protein thanks to the Greek yogurt
4.  Nutrisystem Chocolate Brownie Sundae -Chocolate + brownie + under 200 cal. 
5.  Orange Creamsicle Slush - or blend a melted Nutrisystem Orange Cream Bar 
       with some ice for a refreshing slushy treat

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.
joannabri 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 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!
