Day 239: Fiber Cream

So, I actually discovered this earlier in the week, but it's provided a few Joyful Moments since then (including today) that I failed to post about.

I discovered a pretty yummy substitute for ice cream!!!

Growing up, we usually had two or three cartons of ice cream in the freezer and then 3 or 4 more out in the storage freezer.  Seriously.  I am not exaggerating.  And we ate ice cream almost every night.  And I sort of resurrected that tradition while I was preggems with Baby B.

So, you can see that eliminating ice cream from my diet to accommodate Baby B's MSPI has been challenging in so many ways.  And the dairy free frozen dessert made by Rice Dream just didn't really do it for me.  Neither did sorbet.

So, I was sad.

But a friend of mine kept mentioning ice cream made with coconut milk.  I originally checked it out at the start of the diet when I wasn't as sure about which ingredients I could have and which I could not and I thought it had stuff that I could not.  But I gave it another looksee and lo and behold--it is safe!!!  And it is GOOD!!!  And it has 5 grams of fiber in a half cup.

That totally cancels out the exorbitant amounts of fat in a half cup, too.  What?!  You haven't heard about fiber negating the evils of saturated fats?  Weird.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments that are tasty and maybe a little bit delusional!

To borrow a line from Curses, "That sounds delicious!" (I can almost hear you saying it)

I feel joy and relief because we spoke in Sacrament Meeting and feel good about the messages we shared. And we shouldn't have to speak again for eons.
