Wow, you guys really wanna win the Arctic Zero prize pack, huh? I don’t blame you – it’s a huge giveaway! I’m just as excited about it as you are! Keep the entries coming 🙂 On to the post…
I actually have never had peaches and cream, but I think it’s a thing right? There is a song but I highly doubt they were talking about food in that one 😉 haha. Anyway, I recently received a gigantic package from Arctic Zero with all of their flavored pints and it got me thinking – what are some fun ways I could eat ice cream? So I decided to experiment with this a little bit.
One of the flavors is Vanilla Maple and I thought this would go perfectly with the one peach I had left. Delicious, juicy peach. I’ve been wanting to roast a peach and see how it works out. My George Forman needed cleaning though so I opted for the pan.
I didn’t add any oil or spray to the pan, simply because I didn’t think it was needed. I wasn’t trying to fry the peaches, just warm them up a bit. I’m also not a big caramelizer just yet – only did it once in my life. You could probably actually caramelize the peaches if you add some coconut oil and maple syrup while it’s frying, perhaps. I thought the combo was already so sweet tasting though, that it really wouldn’t need any extra sugar in there.
Well this would never happen. Realistically. I would never sit down with a pint of mint chocolate chip ice cream and eat it in a sitting. Depressed or happy, I would just feel way too guilty afterwards. Have I done it before? Yes. Before I started my healthy living journey. Would I do it now? YES! But only because I don’t have to feel guilty about it anymore — not if I’m eating Arctic Zero apparently. In fact, I can now feel GOOD about eating a pint of ice cream.
I was skeptical when I first saw the product at the store. There is no way in hell a whole pint of ice cream could only be 150 calories. Well, not only that, it also is gluten-free, fat free, all natural and organic, with a low glycemic index, AND it has 14g of protein. WTF? Is this real life? Seriously, how is this thing possible? The product has GOT to taste weird. I mean, these claims are just too unreal. So what happens? I get a surprise and my freezer gets stocked with all flavors and two bars. I’m set for life the next few weeks. Arctic Zero team is clearly very confident in their product which lessened my sense of skepticism slightly. Now all I could do was try it out.
Usually my WIAW days are recorded on Sundays or Mondays, which are my off days. This time I almost forgot about recording my eats again but thankfully I still had Tuesday! So this time my eats are for yesterday, which is my internship day (one of three). Gonna jump right in! Thank you to Jen for hosting again. Lovely Jen.
