Cookie Dough Ice Pops (slimmed down)

Now this is a healthy living blog, but everyone needs a treat every once in a while.  Especially on these early fall nights where you can still take advantage of the warmer weather as a reason to enjoy an ice cream.

I decided to post this recipe because it’s frustrating to me that some brands of ice cream pops can run you about 15 grams of fat or more per pop!  That doesn’t have to be the case, and I think these pops prove that coming in at only 1.3g of fat.  When comparing the sugar content to a regular brand of ice cream pop, these are about the same.. but it IS still ice cream after all.  This is a treat, not a daily staple, but at least it’s a treat that’s cheap and easy to make and will result in you consuming a lot less fat than a run to Cold Stone.

You will also notice at the bottom of this post that I am starting to include the nutritional information.  I got this request from a few people recently, and since it is a healthy living blog, it makes sense to tell you what you’re getting in each dish. There are a few other changes I’m hoping to put in place in the near future, one being adding a tag that will separate my meals into two categories.  One being the quicker to prepare meals (for week-nights) and the other the more labor intensive meals that may be better left for the weekend.  I hope this will help people to navigate the site better.  I love the feedback so if there’s something else you would like to see please let me know!
