A Healthier Ice Cream Option

on February 22, 2016

So it’s Saturday night and you are watching basketball with your family and you want to eat a pint of Ice Cream. Am I the only one who does this? I remember when I was a teenager my best friend Lisa and I would each buy a pint of some yummy ice cream and eat the entire pint. I could do that back then when I had the metabolism of a 16 year old. Now I have to be a little more cautious. So I decided to give Arctic Zero a try. I had some friends tell me about it and I was skeptical. I have seen it at the store but had not ever tried it. So we picked up a pint of the cookie dough flavor. I let my husband pick this time or I would have tried the cool mint chip. We turned on the game and tried our “ice cream.”

Here is our review of this treat (we are not getting paid for this, I wish). The texture was not really ice cream like and there was not enough cookie dough for me. I like cookie dough! It isn’t really sweet, which is ok with me. I really liked it. It is low in calories, non-gmo, lactose free, and you can eat an entire pint for only 300 calories. I split it with the hubby this time though. We did sprinkle a little PB2 on top of it, which in my opinion made it even better. Overall, I would totally try it again. They have some yummy flavors like key lime pie, salted caramel, and the one I want to try next is chocolate peanut butter. I would recommend this if you are trying to stick to your macros but have a sweet tooth like my husband and I do.
