Dr Oz: Healthiest Skinniest Sundaes
We learned earlier on today’s show about Superfoods to Fight Exhaustion and Healthy Breakfast Cereals, but do you have a sweet tooth? Do you love Sundaes but don’t find the fat particularly pleasing? You’re in luck! A sundae can contain up to 2 full meals worth of calories, so on today’s show, Doctor Oz scoured the nation to find the healthiest sundaes. He picked 2 of his favorites and had the creators come on the show for a sundae showdown. With the help of Top Chef and “Talking With My Mouth Full,” Author Gail Simmons, Doctor Oz picked the winner! Gail told Dr Oz that she was looking for a creamy, delicious tasting sundae that had some texture.
Dr Oz: Super Simple Sundae with Super Sauce Recipe
1 scoop of mango, coconut milk, ice cream
1 scoop of raspberry sorbet
¼ cup of Naked Red Machine Smoothie
2 fresh strawberries
3 frozen strawberries
1 Tbsp dark choc shavings
Dr Oz and Gail tried it and loved it. Gail said it had that creaminess she was looking for.
A normal sundae has almost 1000 calories, the Super Simple Sundae with Super Sauce had only 361 calories.
Dr Oz: Very Berry Banana Blast Sundae Recipe
