Today was Day #5 of Chocolate and Coffee Theme Week.

For those looking for a lighter, non-dairy alternative to ice cream, today's Almond Dream, Cappuccino Swirl non-dairy frozen dessert, from The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. (Melville, NY) might be something to try. At only 140 calories in 1/2 cup serving, compared to 250 calories for a fuller fat ice cream, I could enjoy this along with some fruit for lunch.

The coffee + cocoa swirls, running through a a fairly creamy base (made from almonds), boosted the flavor a bit more than plainer flavors.
