No-Churn Caramel Toffee Chip Cheesecake Ice Cream
I know that as a woman I’m supposed to be all “love your shape, whatever it is” and “we are all beautiful” and all of that. And other than when typical female insecurities creep in, I generally believe those mantras. I work out to stay healthy, clear my mind, and feel good, and that’s what matters.
But right now, I’ll be completely honest, I’m feeling a bit vain and kind of shallow and pretty much a disappointment to the movement of women working to inspire each other to feel confident and proud of our bodies no matter the shape and size.
Why, you ask?
You see, The Hubby and I are going on a cruise, our first cruise ever, in a few weeks for our tenth anniversary. Now I know he loves me no matter what I look like, and obviously I’m not looking to attract other men, but guys, I want to rock my bikinis on that cruise ship. Is that wrong? I mean, one chubby childhood filled with insecurities, four years of college with lots of late nights of studying for my chemical engineering classes leading lots of late night Chinese food and Slurpees, a total lifestyle change upon graduating (i.e. discovering that fruits and vegetables actually taste good and exercise is not the devil), two pregnancies, and a broken foot two weeks before my half marathon later, I actually feel like I have potential to rock a bikini. And I don’t just mean wear a bikini. I mean rock it.
Now I’m no Gisele, don’t get me wrong, but I’ve been lifting weights and doing HIIT workouts and some Pilates moves and I feel like it’s making such a huge difference. Even moreso than miles and miles and miles of running. It’s not so much about how I look. It’s about how I feel. And I feel good! I feel strong! And as bizarre as it is for someone as shy and insecure as I am, I want to show that off – no, not my body, but my newfound confidence and strength.
I have no idea why I just put that all out there, but all I know is that if I want to keep that confidence, I need to stop tempting myself with things like this…
This No-Churn Caramel Toffee Chip Cheesecake Ice Cream might just be worth sacrificing the perfect bikini body for. Let’s start with the fact that there’s only seven ingredients and you don’t need an ice cream maker. Plus, I mean, it’s like my dream ice cream because it starts with a creamy base that has cream cheese mixed in to add that bit of tang and tone down the sweetness that some no-churn ice cream recipes have. And that’s good, since you are going to load it up with oozy swirls of luscious caramel and bits of toffee and mini chips for a buttery and chocolaty crunch factor, because texture in ice cream is totally necessary. I mean really, does it get any better?!
I think not. Who cares about bathing suits? There’s No-Churn Caramel Toffee Chip Cheesecake Ice Cream to enjoy!
