A Festive Ice Cream Float with LESS Sugar!
Did you know that November is National Diabetes Month? And today is World Diabetes Day? It's a more important day than you might realize. Nearly 30 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes, and I have walked in their shoes. I had insulin dependent gestational diabetes for two of my three pregnancies, which makes me empathize with those 30 million living with diabetes so much more! So when I was invited by Blue Bunny® to raise awareness for National Diabetes Month and make a sweet treat that is diabetic friendly, I was ALL IN! Here's the lower-sugar sweet treat we came up with that's perfect for this holiday season…
Low Sugar Peppermint Cherry Ice Cream Float
- Blue Bunny® Sweet Freedom (No Sugar Added) Vanilla Ice Cream
- peppermint extract
- cherry flavored diet soda
- maraschino cherries
- sugar free whipped cream
- holiday sprinkles
Put a scoop or two of Blue Bunny® Sweet Freedom Vanilla Ice Cream in a fun holiday mug. Add a drop or two of peppermint extract.
Pour some cherry flavored diet soda over top. Be careful, it'll bubble up. (The kids will love this!) Add some whipped cream, a cherry, and some sprinkles to the top. ENJOY your Peppermint Cherry Ice Cream Float!
