Purim is days away and parties, family gatherings, kids costumes and edible gift ideas are all we seem to be thinking about.
Purim is a holiday all about kids and the junk consumption on this day can get a bit much. Making healthier eating a priority doesn't mean you have to compromise on doing something fabulous, memorable, kid-friendly and decadent.
When eating treats focusing on the HEALTHIER options available allows for some indulgence without the guilt. So this year, consider throwing the ultimate ice cream party. Be mindful about using healthy toppings and healthier ice cream options.
Yes, they do exist. ENLIGHTENED is one such example. They produce good-for-you ice cream that is packed with protein, low in calories (240 calories for the ENTIRE pint!), all without compromising on the creamy richness that makes ice cream so great.
HOW TO: HEALTHY ICE CREAM BAR
STEP 1: Start with a good quality ice cream like Enlightened.
STEP 2: TOPPINGS
Use fresh fruit, protein packed nuts and antioxidant rich dark chocolate in place of sprinkles, candy, caramel and milk chocolate.
STEP 3: SERVE
Set up a colorful tablecloth, with stacks of ice cream store style cups and spoons. Prepare a few bowls of toppings, a few pints of ice cream and let your guests go wild.
