Better For You Ice Cream Sundae

Who doesn’t love an ice cream sundae with all the trimmings? Exactly. I love ice cream but I wouldn’t exactly say it is a great late night choice, especially when it is made like you remember with whipped cream from a can and lots of syrups. I have given the ice cream sundae a better for you makeover that is a more adult twist on a childhood favorite… and it is delicious!

I can’t even friends. I love this new version and I will say, I am eating a MUCH more appropriate proportion this way, let’s just not talk about how much I would eat before. That’s not important. Back to this better for me version, it all started when I fell in love with the  DOVE® Fruit Dark Chocolate Covered Cranberries last year, you can check out this fun gift idea I did with it last year HERE. Well, they came out with two additional flavors, Dark Chocolate Covered Cherries and Dark Chocolate Covered Blueberries.

So, you know I had to try all three, naturally, so when I saw this display at Walmart, I just snagged one of each. Even better is there is a COUPON out right now, and a high value one! Grab that bad boy  by clicking –> HERE! (While supplies last, of course.)

The  DOVE® Fruit are the first change, next, instead of ice cream I went with frozen greek yogurt in chocolate and black cherry. I put a small scoop of each in a little bowl, since the bowl is smaller and will get filled up, it gives the illusion of much more. Or at least that is what I am telling myself.

Then I added a bit of chocolate sauce, still completely necessary since it is a sundae and all.

Next came banana chips, you could go with the real thing but these seem a little more decadent and fun to me for some reason.

Second to last was an organic mixed nut and granola mix- it is starting to look good, huh?!

Last, and maybe my favorite part, DOVE® Fruit in your favorite flavor, I went with the Dark Chocolate Covered Blueberries and this may be my new favorite weekend dessert.
