Everybody loves chocolate peanut-butter ice cream. But there is a healthy alternative.<br/><br/>Check out the website www.nutritiondata.com . It is a very useful website that I mention in this week's podcast episode. NutritionData allows you to gather nutrition labels and very specific information for every food on the planet. Here's a screenshot of one brand of Peanut Butter ice cream:<br/><br/>!http://www.bengreenfieldfitness.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/peanutbuttericecream.png|title=peanutbuttericecream|alt=|class=alignnone size-medium wp-image-32|src=http://www.bengreenfieldfitness.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/peanutbuttericecream.png!<br/><br/>And that's just 170 grams, which is about 3/4 cup. Not much.<br/><br/>So here's the alternative that you can do yourself at home:<br/><br/>1. Take 1/2 a container of plain low-fat or fat free yogurt (about 60 calories).<br/><br/>2. Add 1/2 a tablespoon of almond butter or peanut butter (50 calories).<br/><br/>3. Add a tablespoon of Hershey's chocolate or Ovaltine OR 1/4 dark chocolate bar for added texture (50 calories).<br/><br/>4. Freeze for 20 minutes and voila! Chocolate-peanut butter frozen yogurt with less than half the calories and far less saturated fat and sugar.<br/><br/>Enjoy your new-found dessert.
