One bulletproof strategy? Shoot off a couple of rounds of Chill Baby ice cream sandwiches.
Local food blogger and chef Callie Beckmann has accomplished a seemingly impossible mission: gluten-free ice cream that tastes like the real deal. Using fresh produce and high-quality ingredients, she whips up small-batch flavors and pairs them with an arsenal of Glow cookies (made with garbanzo bean flour).
Explosive choices switch up each season. In summer, try gingersnap honey lemonade, dairy-free double chocolate fresh mint chip, and snickerdoodle peach sweet tea. Rumor has it fall may bring double chocolate salted caramel and Beckmann’s legendary gingersnap mango curry.
When battling a sweet tooth, it’s your best defense.
