Biscoff Sundae

I feel like I was just complaining about Tuesday and somehow it's now already Thursday!

(Right? It is, in fact, Thursday today?)

Last night Shaun had basketball and so I spent the evening hanging on the couch catching up on my shows --->the ones Shaun refuses to watch with me (but then asks me for the recap of them, so I secretly think he does in fact want to watch!). Topping my list? Kourtney & Kim Take New York!

I'm not really into reality TV for the most part, but I do love me some Kardashians, Bethenny and of course, Jersey Shore. During this season of Kardashians, I've come to the realization that Scott is my favorite of the bunch. I know this is a bold statement. And I was there for the drunken mirror punching, Khloe-hating, the whole shebang. But now, I think he is funny, charming, and sort of puppy doggish in how he loves Kourtney so much and she can seemingly take him or leave him.

Am I wrong to like him this much? Let the Kardashian weigh-in begin!

Moving on.

You know that I've been doing Weight Watchers, and for me, the most difficult part of a maintaining a healthy lifestyle is that I really like to have dessert at night. It doesn't have to be anything big or fancy, but I do love just a little sweetness. With Weight Watchers in mind, I've been trying to get creative with my dessert to keep it low points but satisfying. Enter the Biscoff sundae.

If you haven't tried biscoff spread yet, it's like gingerbread and shortbread got married, had a baby, and it turned into a spread. It's yummy.

This little number takes about 2 minutes to whip up and comes to 4 Points+. Not to shabby considering this is one decadent and filling sundae! It's perfect for the evenings when you have a light dinner with a few Points+ to spare!

Biscoff Sundae

4 WW Points +

1/2 C light or sugar-free vanilla bean ice cream (I used Turkey Hill Light)

1 Tbsp biscoff spread

2 Tbsp whipped cream (aerosol or Cool Whip)

In a small, bowl, melt the biscoff spread in the microwave, about 20 seconds.

Meanwhile, scoop ice cream into a bowl. Drizzle with melted biscoff.

Top with whipped cream or fat free Cool Whip.

The biscoff hardens around the ice cream like a Magic Shell and adds such a delicious flavor. It's such a nice change up from chocolate syrup --->though I think light or sugar-free chocolate syrup would be A-mazing here too! And less Points+.

So there you have it. My favorite little dessert of late. It feels so fancy, but is really incredibly simple and worth every Point!

Questions of the Day:

Who is your favorite Kardashian (if you watch the show)?

What is your favorite ice cream topping? As long as I have whipped cream, I'm all good!

 

Five Things Friday

Happy Friday, all! I have to take a moment to tell you a giant THANKS for all of your kind words of support on yesterday's post. Knowing that I'm not alone and that you support some healthy changes on the blog has renewed my motivation. I am ready to tackle the world today! ;)

It's Five Things Friday, and this is quickly becoming my favorite post of the week to put together. I just love picking out a few fun things from the week to tell you about - it's also a total mood booster to appreciate a few little things in life!

Flavored & Fun K-Cups

Shaun gave me a mini Keurig for Christmas and he has since filled my stash with a few fun flavors to keep it interesting...Dunkin' Donuts Hazelnut and Kahlua to name a couple! It gives coffee that extra oomph it needs to get me going.

 

 

Fuzzy slippers...with support!

I have serious foot issues - in that my feet seem to hurt me all the time - and so I always look for shoes that offer a little support. This rings true for slippers too! Shaun also gave me these sweet, cozy and comfy Tamarac moccasin slippers for Christmas. They are cute enough to wear outside and comfy enough to stand in the kitchen cooking for an afternoon. Win-win!

 

 

Biscoff Spread

I had received a jar of this deliciousness during the December foodie pen pals exchange. Admittedly with so many goodies around Christmas and New Year's, I didn't give it a proper dig-in until recently. The verdict? I am really loving the flavor! Just a little bit goes a long way. And for just 2 WW Points+ per tablespoon...I think it's totally worth it! In fact, I have a little ww-friendly dessert coming up next week to share with you, featuring Biscoff!

 

DIY Tortilla Chips

I am mildly obsessed with these lately! You may have seen me post about these on The Peach & The Pit a few weeks back, so be sure to head over to get the recipe. They are so easy and so worth the effort. Oh and 12 chips is only 2 WW Points+. Not kidding. I have like 1 million ideas for these guys, so stay tuned!

 

OPI's Suzy Says Feng Shui

I think this is my all-time favorite nail polish color. I adore blue polish and this is the perfect muted dark blue. I especially love breaking it out in the winter months. It's from OPI's Hong Kong collection of yore, but it still tops my list of fave colors. I plan to be rocking this for the weekend since we have a party tomorrow evening...and it totally works to cheer on the Giants for Sunday! Superbowl, here we come!

I hope you all have the best weekend ever! I have a few parties to attend and plan to get a lot done around my apartment!

What are you loving this week?

What are your weekend plans?
