If ice cream is your weakness, then save calories by filling your bowl with vegan alternatives using frozen fruit. Go for this banana peanut butter, or try one made with mango. One serving is only 150 calories.

Creamy: Frozen Yogurt Cups
When frozen fruit just won't cut it (and you know ice cream is too high in fat and calories), frozen yogurt makes a great alternative. If you can't get to a Pinkberry, then make these 30-calorie frozen yogurt cups.

This simple, low-calorie vanilla banana protein smoothie can be enjoyed before or after a workout; protein powder and almond milk help fuel your workout, and adding half a banana to the mix helps keep your electrolytes balanced.
