15 CALORIE Frozen Whipped Cream Bites!
If you LOVE ice cream like I do, you will absolutely love these 15 calorie treats.
A cup of ice cream can have over 330 calories, while the whole can of whipped cream has about 290!
- Buy lightly sweetened whipped cream in a can (look at the ingredients to see if it’s truly just cream)
- Make little swirls on a baking sheet, and pop in the freezer for at least 2 hours.
- I piped these into cupcake papers which made them take up less space.
- Every time you get an ice cream craving pop one of these in your mouth!
Personally, I think it’s more than 35% diet, maybe around 70-80%
This is a fantastic idea! I may just mark up my water jug to keep even better track!

Spinach has many charms — truly singular flavor, the ability to be transformed by cooking in myriad ways, its famous health benefits — but raw in a salad is probably the least convincing. Try cooking wilted spinach these three healthy ways:
1. With Skirt Steak
Sear 8 ounces skirt steak in a large skillet over high heat, turning once. Remove, let pan cool a bit, then add 2 tablespoons butter and chopped spinach; stir until it wilts, 30 seconds or so. Add 3 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar, 2 chopped tomatoes and 1/2 chopped red onion and cook another minute. Toss and top with the sliced steak; 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese makes a nice garnish.
2. With Bacon
Render 4 thick bacon slices in olive oil until nearly crisp, then remove. Toss spinach with a sprig of tarragon in the rendered fat to wilt; add 1/2 pound chopped mushrooms instead of tomatoes and onion; skip the cheese and top with bacon.
3. With Chicken
Substitute chicken breast for steak; cook in olive oil, browning well. Wipe pan clean. Melt 3 tablespoons butter and add spinach to wilt. Add tomatoes and a handful of chopped scallions; skip the rest. Top with sliced chicken and fresh lemon juice.
Sweet potato on a sandwich? Genius!
