[center]You Suck, Ice Cream Truck! [/center]
I think ice cream trucks should be required to speed up when a fat kid tries to wave them down for a Choco Taco.
When the kid starts to give up, the truck should slow down a little, get the kid’s hopes up, then speed up again when he’s almost at the window. This should continue until fat-boy burns the 300 calories contained in the aforementioned ice cream novelty.
I’m so mean, I know.
I went through quite a few chocolate-banana Bomb Pops myself as a chubby kid in Texas. It was hot, I was hungry, and that damn ice cream truck seemed to park in front of my house, beckoning me every afternoon with its siren song.
It’s a small world after all
It’s a small, small world
Oh, the irony.
Well, it’s still hot, and I still get hungry. But as a not-fat adult and fitness expert, I no longer chase the ice cream truck down the block… but I do make my own, abs-friendly frozen treats sometimes. Check it out:
[center]Blueberry Ice Pops [/center]
2 cups blueberries
2 cups plain Greek yogurt
1/3 cup whole or lite coconut milk (canned variety)
1 cup Splenda or equivalent of your favorite sweetener
Blend all ingredients together and pour into ice pop molds ($3 at WalMart, or just use paper cups.) Freeze until solid. After a few hours, run warm water over them to coax them out of their molds, then prepare for ice-cream-headache bliss.
[center]Variation: Raspberry-Coconut Pops [/center]
Same as above, but use raspberries instead of blueberries, then stir in 1/2 cup of unsweetened coconut flakes before freezing.
If you’re on the <a href="http://velocity.tmuscle.com/free_online_program/sports_body_training_diet_velocity/velocity_diet_30#velocity-diet-3-0"target=“new”>V-Diet, you’re allowed one after your solid meal on HSM day. If you’re not on the V-Diet but want to avoid ice cream and stay lean this summer, then enjoy one of these bad boys whenever the urge hits.
