Posted on Posted in cooking, Dessert, Healthy, recipes

Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey ice cream has been my all time favorite ice cream flavor / comfort food / basically best friend since my preteen years. The first few bites are downright delicious but if I eat more than a small bowl I get this yucky feeling in my gut – no, not lactose intolerance. but guilt! The amount of calories a tiny pint of Ben and Jerry’s has will make any one feel sick to their stomach. I thought their had to be an easier way so I figured out how to make my own healthy Chunky Monkey Ice Cream Recipe and I’m pretty happy with the results! It’s so easy and doesn’t require an ice cream maker!
