Low-Fat Chocolate Mint Brownie Ice Cream

Who says you can't eat ice cream in January?
They were lying. Because it's perfectly appropriate. And in fact, it's a great idea. In fact, my tummy hurts today. And you know what can cure it? Ice cream.
I got an ice cream maker for Christmas. And this was my first experiment. For a first time, not bad! And it's low fat...and it tastes exactly like a fudgcicle. And the best part? I was able to use up the last few from this incredible Creme de Menthe Brownie recipe from the holidays. Or maybe the best part is that it was absolutely simple to make.
I've been working out like a crazy woman this week, and now it's time to relax. So I'm curling up tonight, with a bowl of scream and a movie. Be jealous.

Ice cream and a movie sounds like a perfect way to relax after a hard week. It has been warm in Austin, so ice cream is certainly fitting for January. Thank you for sharing this...I love how you added mint brownies. I hope you have a relaxing Sunday. I don't know about you, but I need a day to rejuvenate!
