If you're watching your weight and have put ice cream on your "don't eat" list, think again ...
Instead of a big dish of ice cream TOPPED by a handful of berries, enjoy a bowl of berries capped with a small scoop (about 1/2 cup) of ice cream.
ONE cup of a combination of blueberries and raspberries provides about 75 calories plus fiber, folate, potassium, vitamin C and antioxidants. A half cup of a light ice cream adds about 100 calories, as well as calcium.
With a total of around 175 calories for the fruit plus ice cream, your taste buds AND your waistline can be happy!
