Ok, we know we’re a day late, but who cares! National Ice Cream Day should be every day in our book.
This refreshing treat tends to get a bad rep because all of the sugar, but people forget that there’s usually always a way to enjoy bad-for-you foods in a healthy way. Store-bought options, often packed with saturated fat and calories, are a no-no for sure.
So why not skip the added fat and calories and opt to whip up your own, homemade treats?
