 I hope that you love these as much as we do.  Sending lots of love from us to all of you!

Pizza –

There are so many different ways you can make pizza at home.  Over the years Kevin and I have made and tried so many different healthier alternatives for pizza.  But today I thought I would share one that is super simple and fast to make that is not only low in calorie but also delicious!  You can add any toppings that you like and customize it to you.  I love adding lots of veggies and sometimes even some turkey pepperoni.  Kevin loves keeping it simple and likes turkey  sausage or pepperoni and cheese.

Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches –

OK guys seriously I don’t think it gets much better than this!  You have cookies.  You have ice cream.  You have high protein.  This is the perfect little treat you don’t need to feel guilty about.  I still only eat these as a treat, however they are the perfect way to treat yourself without going too crazy, and I am addicted!  The ice cream and bars are amazing on their own, but when you bake the bars and add ice cream in between it doesn’t get much better than that!

You can combine your own favorite cookies or bars to make this recipe but I LOVE Quest bars for this recipe.  You can also choose whatever ice cream you like, but right now Halo Top and Enlightened have been the ones I have been reaching for.

My favorite combo of these treats has to be Rocky Road Quest bars with Halo Top or Enlightened Mint chip ice cream.

Kevin loves cookie dough Quest bar with chocolate Halo Top.

We have tried so many different combos and we love them all!

 

If you try these let me know what your favorite combo is.  I would love to know!
