Trust us, DQ is doing this one all wrong. Here's proof...

1 standard-sized Keebler Waffle Bowl (or another store-bought waffle bowl with about 50 calories)
1/2 cup fat-free vanilla ice cream
3 frozen unsweetened strawberries 
1 1/2 tbsp. Hershey's Lite chocolate syrup, divided
1/2 tbsp. sugar-free strawberry preserves
2 tbsp. Fat Free Reddi-wip

Pour 1 tbsp. chocolate syrup into the waffle bowl, tilting the bowl from side to side so the syrup coats as much of the inside as possible (sides too!). Freeze for 30 minutes, or until syrup has solidified.

Place berries in a microwave-safe bowl, and microwave until thawed, about 25 seconds. Do not drain excess liquid. Add preserves and mash with a fork, until you have a chunky strawberry sauce. Set aside.

Remove waffle bowl from the freezer and place in a dish. Scoop ice cream into the waffle bowl. Top with strawberry sauce and 1/2 tbsp. chocolate syrup, and then finish it all off with Reddi-wip. Eat the WHOLE thing, waffle bowl and all! (FYI: It's fun to break up the waffle bowl and eat it along with the ice cream, which is why you need another dish to contain it all!)

We're not here with shocking news, humans. Is it surprising in any way that the chocolatey, ice-cream-packed, strawberry-sauced, shoved-in-a-waffle-bowl sundae at DQ is high in calories and fat? Um, nooooo! But 760 calories and nearly 40g fat is particularly excessive. Not as bad as the 970-calorie Fudge Brownie Temptation Waffle Bowl Sundae, of course, which has 49g fat -- but still pretty crazy in the stats department. So what are we to do? Live a sad life devoid of strawberry 'n chocolate waffle bowl sundaes?! Nuh-uh! Not on your life, people! When we see something we like, we must find a way to have it. In this case, a few simple swaps allowed us to create a guilt-free version of this crazy-decadent ice cream concoction. And ours has around 75% FEWER calories and a teeny tiny amount of fat. July is National Ice Cream Month -- now you can celebrate with the big boys.

We were SO excited to see that today, July 7th, is National Strawberry Sundae Day, we used it as a delicious excuse to make over a crazy-high-calorie DQ sundae. We're not usually big on excuses... but ones that lead to ice cream in your face can't be that bad, right!?
