Ingredients :

  • 4 pounds of potatoes
  • 3 cups of Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons of Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 cups of chopped dill.

Coconut Ice Cream Has Half The Calories

Did you know that coconut ice cream typically has less than half the calories as do other ice creams that you will find?  Dr. Oz said be sure to look for a Coconut Milk Ice Cream that doesn’t have any sugar added.  Coconut Milk Ice Cream also has the added benefit of 10 grams of fiber which helps reduce the absorption of fat.  Not only that, it is also dairy free so you won’t experience the bloating problems that many people have after consuming dairy.
