When I heard today was National Ice Cream Day I had to check out what Weight Watchers had to say about ice cream and found this handy table.

Obviously I won't be having a three scoop treat like I did for my 30th birthday but who says you can't have a small scoop and add some fresh fruit as garnish for zero smart points?

Wanted to follow up by saying I had 2 Tablespoons of a "premium ice cream" (Ben and Jerry's Milk and Cookies) and according to the Weight watchers' app, that came to 3.25 smart points. I at first thought that wouldn't be enough but because of the sweetness it was just the right size coupled with banana and blueberry.
