Sometimes ice cream is just something you need! We hear ya. And in terms of healthy ice cream, there are now lactose-free, coconut, almond, low cal, sugar-free, and fat free ice creams available in grocery freezers. Some, however, are still very high calorie and many of the healthy versions simply taste awful. But not to worry! We’ve found a healthy ice cream that tastes great and is 60 to 70 calories per serving or 240 to 280 calories per pint, if you have a problem keeping to just one serving. Hey, we’re not judging. This ice cream has protein, little sugar, and some fat to balance your insulin levels, unlike frozen yogurt which is high sugar and fat free.
Remember when you used to go to frozen yogurt shops and fill your bowl to the hilt and then weigh it at the end thinking that all of it was guilt free? Sorry ladies, but those days are over. That oversized bowl of frozen yogurt was actually a sugar injection with a lot of terrible artificial ingredients. A horrible beauty choice!
Halo Top ice cream is made with high quality dairy and does not contain carrageenan, a stabilizer and thickener (common ingredient in most coconut and almond milks as well as ice creams, known to cause cancer). It does not contain corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, nor synthetic growth hormones. Gluten sensitive people can also scoop Halo Top — even the birthday cake flavor is gluten free!! How do they get the sweet amazing taste, with the sugar? Halo Top is sweetened with organic stevia and erythritol, but all-natural sweeteners th at have no affect on blood glucose and wont cause bloating. For a sweet or ice cream fix, a few bites of Halo Top will do just the trick. Lean and skinny gals don’t just eat clean…they sometimes have healthy ice cream too 🙂
