Frozen and fabulous

Few things are more refreshing on a 90-degree day than a melting, double-scoop ice cream cone. But after a few 300-calorie-plus servings (i.e., one-half cup of Ben and Jerry's Brownie Batter), you might see the difference on the scale. These DIY ice cream recipes are invigorating, light, and chock-full of bone-healthy calcium. 

Lemon-Buttermilk Ice Cream
Five simple ingredients never tasted so good! Combining fresh lemon juice with sugar adds just enough citrus flavor without making the dessert too tart. The recipe uses fat-free buttermilk mixed with whole milk to get a creamy texture, without all the added fat. Though this frozen treat is kid-friendly, the hardest part is waiting the hour for it to freeze.
