Life is to short to skip dessert. Yes, I said it, I indulge in tasty desserts on a regular basis. Who wants to go through life restricting everything that they eat? A big part of life is enjoying the journey. Your sweet treat doesn’t have to be half a gallon of ice cream (try our DIY healthy Cake-batter Ice Cream) or a pound of cake. There are many yummy treats that are healthy, won’t expand your waist line and are satisfying to that sweet tooth. This recipe is a favorite among children and adults.
