Guest Post: Claire aka The Realistic Nutritionist!

You know how most people bloggers feel about The Pioneer Woman? Where they want to go to her ranch and watch her cook and be adorable, then have a sleepover and talk about boys and hang out and be BF4E? Followed by more food eating? And then cocktails? That’s how I feel about Claire, aka The Realistic Nutritionist. I love me some P-Dub but would rather have a Claire recipe/conversation any day. This is a chick who is on my wavelength. Her recipes are always challenging me to try new things (hopefully soon… tofu! Cause she makes it look do-able!!) while remaining calorie-concious. Can’t beat that. Thanks so much for guest posting, Claire! Now fly yourself to Orlando and make this for me please.

Hi darling readers of KJ Pugs! Claire here, also known as The Realistic Nutritionist. I’ve been a fan and Internet stalker of Kelly for almost 2 years. In fact, I was reading Kelly way before I was even a blogger. Now she’s a great friend of mine and I can’t wait until we meet IRL. So thank you again Kelly for having me!

Today we’re going to talk about ice cream. And not just any ol’ ice cream, ice cream that tastes like pie.

On board yet? No? Well, what if I told you it tasted like KEY LIME PIE. Feeling a little more jazzed about it? What about another photograph?

This ice cream is probably one of the best, if not THE best, ice cream I’ve ever made. It has the perfect balance of sweetness, tartness and creaminess. And with the addition of the crushed graham crackers, you get a little crunch too. Add a dollop of whipped cream and you have key lime pie, just in creamy, frozen form.

I made this on Tuesday and the entire batch, as in all 5 cups of it, were gone the next day. And my husband hates lime. So, do the math. Someone will most likely have to roll me out of my house now. Want to make it? Check out the recipe HERE on Fabulous Foods!

Thank you again Kelly for having me!

I cannot wait to make this when I’m back from vacation! We have an ice cream maker and barely use it. I know this sounds blasphemous, but I’m not a huge chocolate ice cream fan. I tend to lean towards citrus or mint. This will be the perfect easy and citrusy-refreshing dessert for our hot Florida weather. Big Daddy claims to hate key lime pie, but loves lemon desserts, so I’m excited for him to try key lime pie in a new form. Is it wrong to secretly hope he doesn’t like it so there’s more for me? Hope not! Thanks Claire for sharing this delicious and simple dessert!
