Working out can be a total chore, but what if you had more than just a carrot dangling on a stick to chase when trying to reach your fitness goals? What if it was ice cream?

The Kickball Ice Cream Maker from the novelty-item masters at Hammacher Schlemmer offers you just that. Some sneakers, cream and sugar are all you need to have freshly churned ice cream on the table after dinner.

If your kids (or you) are set on the idea of dessert, the Kickball Ice Cream Maker is the perfect way to reinforce that it's okay to indulge — as long as you're staying active throughout the day. Just 20 minutes of kicking produces a pint of ice cream. You'll literally be chasing your midnight snack around the yard, and can feast later with no remorse. That's a sweet treat indeed!

Now if only someone would invent the pizza-tossing soccer ball or the breakfast sandwich-assembling elliptical, getting your exercise in every day would really be a (potentially literal) piece of cake.
