It’s so easy for moms to forget that our work is never-ending, physically taxing, and constant. It’s also easy to forget that we’re deserving of the occasional breather….so matter how small. That’s why, this summer, I’ve stocked my freezer with as many flavors of Haagen-Dazs ice cream as I could find at my local Stop & Shop. (See coupon info below)

I’ve learned that self-care can range from luxury hotels and spa days to very simple ways to squeeze in a little more rest. Sleeping in on lazy Saturday mornings and the occasional DIY face mask when my daughter went to sleep were favorites this spring and fall. But this summer I’m all about spoiling myself! What better way to relax in the hot days of summer than to curl up with a good book and some new ice cream flavors!?

My absolute favorite tradition this summer has been late night ice cream in my PJs. The city seems so quiet at night and with my views of the skyline, and bowl of my Chocolate Salted Fudge Truffle, I finally have time to be present and relax.  I’m not going to lie, I go through bowl after bowl of this flavor. The new non-dairy line allows me to go hard and eat as much as I please without the fear of overdosing on too much milk at night.

I know I should technically be sleeping, but it’s SUMMER! I have totally different  energy levels when Vitamin D is free and available every time you step outdoors 🙂 I naturally wake up at least once a night..around  1 or 2am. Instead of tossing and turning, I simply get up, grab a carton of Haagen-Dazs and catch up on Netflix or reading until I’m tired again. It’s my comfort food!

Most non- dairy options simply substitute soy or almond milk as the first ingredient. Haagen-Dazs Non Dairy collection starts with the core ingredient….real peanut butter, Chunks of Belgian chocolate or real coconut cream. It results in a more authentic taste and creamier texture!

That’s what a perfect night of relaxation looks like around here! As a single mom, I’m stuck in the house once my daughter goes to bed. But that doesn’t mean that I can’t reward myself for a job well done when I get a moment to reflect. Creamy, extraordinarily flavorful, (the FUDGE!!) and dairy free really is the perfect end to a long day of work. Make sure to check them out at the Stop and Shop at Atlantic Center today!

The new non-dairy flavors are just as decadent and delicious as the regular line. Last night I didn’t even make it to the sofa with my ice cream. I found myself in front of the freezer, scraping the very last bits of chocolate and fudge from the carton.
