It's Ice Cream Season. . . Re-think Your Toppings

By swapping frozen yogurt for regular ice cream, homemade chocolate syrup for store-bought hot fudge sauce, and berries macerated (fancy name for tossed with ahead of time to get all juicy and yummy) in honey, you save 180 calories that one ice cream sundae! 

Homemade Chocolate syrup:

1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
dash salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract

In a saucepan, whisk together the cocoa and sugar.  Add the water and salt, whisking over medium heat until boiling.  Boil for 2 minutes, then remove from heat and add the vanilla extract.  Store in refrigerator. 

Makes approximately 2 cups (16 servings)
