Here’s the scoop.
When it comes to ice cream, sugar is out and protein is in. New brands are milking our desire for healthier desserts, delivering fewer calories, less sugar, and more protein. Sounds great, right?
Well, it gets better. Many of these products also pass the taste test (look out for flavors like oatmeal cookie and peanut butter cup!). Still, it’s worth noting that some low-calorie, low-sugar ice creams can tempt us into eating more than the recommended serving size. Healthier or not, it’s still best to stick with a 1/2 cup serving as an occasional treat.
Or, if you make your own ice cream, you can guarantee that it’ll be as nutritious as possible (and even sneak some veggies in!). Get started with our Sweet Pea Coconut Ice Cream, Three-Ingredient Blueberry Ice Cream, or Honey Pecan Sweet Potato Ice Cream.
