Now these are the sort of posts I like writing about because I get the scoff everything that I have made afterwards! This morning was spent doing British Military Fitness on Clapham Common building up a decent appetite then when home I started mixing up some protein batter for my home-made waffles topped with Oppo guilt-free ice cream...yes for brunch and don't feel guilty about it AT all, and here's why.
Firstly I'm a bit of a kid at heart and the thought of having ice cream at any time of the day gets me excited. Although on the flip side of that comment, I'm also a bit of a fitness freak and right now I'm massively cutting down on my refined sugar intake - I even take tea and coffee without sugar now (a big step for me). Just google 'What does sugar do to my body' and you'll be inundated with facts about the adverse short-term and long-term effects refined sugar has on us.
Hello Oppo ice cream. Created because Oppo believe that indulgent food doesn’t need loads of sugar or calories to taste good and of course they are right. A simple taste test this morning proved that. I could actually bang on about how good this ice cream tastes yet how healthy and clean it is, although I think Charlie & Harry, do it better:
"Oppo ice cream is made with natural ingredients and just 40 calories a scoop"
