For a relationship to work, the feelings should be mutual.

I love you.

You love me.

Right?

When feelings aren’t mutual… it is a good indicator that it is time to break up and move on.

Well, ice cream, my love, it is about TIME I say goodbye. As much as I love you, you don’t love me back. All you do is give me stomach aches and your sweet sugary-ness makes my mood a little cray-cray.

However, a girl still needs some dessert from time to time – am I right, or am I right?

It’s time to call in the fruit!

This sweet, natural, dairy-free and vegan dessert is a refreshing alternative to sugar-laden treats. It’s enough to satisfy your sweet tooth while delivering a plethora of health benefits.

Check it out for yourself!
