Best “Diet” Ice Cream

Yesterday I did a post dedicated to some of the worst Ice creams that are on the market today. These Ice creams are loaded with chemicals, artificial sweeteners, and are processed more than processed junk. Today I am bringing you my list of what I considered to be some of the best Ice creams that are out on the market today. If you are curious to see If you “favorite” Ice cream made the naughty list yesterday here Is the link so you can check It out Click Here

I’m going to get straight Into the best Ice cream list since my list Is pretty long

Edy’s 1/2 the Fat Slow Churned Vanilla

1/2 CUP: 100 calories, 3 g fat (2 g saturated fat), 30 mg sodium, 15 g carbs (0 g fiber, 13 g sugar), 3 g protein; 8% DV calcium

There’s no funny business here. Simply made from non-fat milk and buttermilk, Edy’s regular option is one of the best diet ice creams in disguise. Sure it’s higher in sugar than we’d like to see, but it’s made from all natural ingredients and is low in calories. We give this a double thumbs up!

Yasso Party Animal

1/2 CUP (76 G): 130 calories, 2.5 g fat (1.5 g saturated fat), 60 mg sodium, 20 g carbs (0 g fiber, 16 g sugar), 6 g protein; 10% DV calcium

We love that Yasso crafts its creamy treat with protein-packed Greek yogurt that lends this pint its irresistible texture. However, I’m not to keen on the fattening palm oil added to the mix.

So Delicious No Sugar Added Coconut Milk Vanilla Bean

1/2 CUP (85 G): 110 calories, 7 g fat (6 g saturated fat), 95 mg sodium, 18 g carbs (11 g fiber, 1 g sugar, 3 g sugar alcohol), <1 g protein; 0% DV calcium

This vegan food has a reasonable amount of satiating, healthy fats while being low in calories and sugar. And rather than using artificial sweeteners, So Delicious uses natural, zero-calorie sweeteners like monk fruit extract as well as sugar alcohols like erythritol, to which I’ve given the green light.

Ben & Jerry’s Moo-phoria Light Ice Cream, Chocolate Milk & Cookies

1/2 CUP (68G): 140 calories, 4.5 g fat (2.5 g saturated fat), 70 mg sodium, 22 g carbs (1 g fiber, 15 g sugar), 3 g protein; 8% DV calcium

If you’re Ben and Jerry’s biggest fan (who isn’t?!), you’re going to love their lightened-up pints. A half-cup serving packs in half the calories and more than half the sugar than the original Milk & Cookies pint—without compromising one bit of flavor. (If you can find this stock up! It Is delicious!)

Talenti Less Sugar Vanilla Cinnamon Gelato

1/2 CUP (86G): 120 calories, 4 g fat (2.5 g saturated fat), 50 mg sodium, 26 g carbs (0 g fiber, 10 g sugar, 6 g sugar alcohols), 3 g protein; 10% DV calcium

You may have seen Talenti’s super decadent gelatos stocked in the freezer aisle, but refrained from buying a calorie-bomb tub. Luckily, Talenti came out with a lower sugar, lower calorie pint that’s still packed with loads of craveable flavor in addition to a clean ingredient list.

When buying It Is Expensive but worth every penny!

Skinny Cow Oh My! Vanilla Bean

½ CUP: 90 calories, 2.5 g fat (1.5 g saturated fat), 60 mg sodium, 12 g carbs (<1 g fiber, 9 g sugar), 6 g protein; 15% DV calcium

Skinny Cow’s pint is sweetened with a combo of stevia and sugar, so you’re guaranteed zero artificial aftertaste. Not to mention, you’ll check off 15 percent of your DV of bone-building calcium with just a half-cup full.

Chilly Cow Cookies N’ Cream

1/2 TUB (77 G): 90 calories, 2.25 g fat (1.25 g saturated fat), 115 mg sodium, 18.5 g carbs (5 g fiber, 6.5 g sugar, 4.5 g sugar alcohol), 6 g protein; 15% DV calcium

Chilly Cow remains realistic with its serving sizes and knows that if you’re buying the half-pint tub, you’re planning to finish it all. Thankfully, the indulgence won’t do much damage.

This Is an expensive Ice cream. It runs roughly $6 for a pint. 

Swell Vanilla Bean Low Fat Ice Cream

½ CUP (81 G): 120 calories, 1.5 g fat (0.5 g saturated fat), 55 mg sodium, 19 g carbs (3 g fiber, 9 g sugar, 7 g sugar alcohol), 10 g protein; 10% DV calcium

Swell gets its muscle-building protein from milk and whey protein concentrate, which bumps up the content to a whopping 10 grams per serving. However, don’t try sharing a scoop with your dog—Swell is sweetened with xylitol and xylitol is toxic to dogs like really really toxic. Don’t say you haven’t been warned!

Breyers Delights Vanilla Ice Cream With Protein

2/3 CUP (89G): 90 calories, 2.5 g fat (1.5 g saturated fat), 55 mg sodium, 21 g carbs (0 g fiber, 7 g sugar, 6 g sugar alcohols), 7 g protein; 15% DV calcium

This is pretty simple and I approve of all the ingredients and a creamy-as-can-be texture, I bet you’re dreaming of this pint It’s nothing less than delightful.

Slim Twin Organic Vanilla

1/2 CUP (85G): 60 calories, 1.5 g fat (0.5 g saturated fat), 45 mg sodium, 10 g carbs (3 g fiber, 4 g sugar, 3 g sugar alcohols), 6 g protein; 15% calcium

This offering is the first certified USDA organic low-fat, low-calorie ice cream in the grocery store. With fewer calories, sodium, carbs, and a gram more protein than Halo Top’s vanilla, spooning into this pint only feels indulgent trust me It won’t hurt your waistline.

Enlightened Vanilla

1/2 CUP (73 G): 60 calories, 1.5 g fat (1 g saturated fat), 35 mg sodium, 14 g carbs (5 g fiber, 3 g sugar, 5 g sugar alcohol), 6 g protein; 15% DV calcium

Enlightened’s “good-for-you” ice cream is made with real skim milk and is full of nearly as much protein as an egg. It beats out nearly-identical Slim Twin because it contains more belly-filling fiber and has less sugar.

Arctic Zero Vanilla Bean Light Ice Cream

½ CUP: 70 calories, 1 g fat (0.5 g saturated fat), 70 mg sodium, 14 g carbs (3 g fiber, 9 g sugar), 2 g protein; 5% DV calcium

If you’re not big on Arctic Zero’s infamously frozen texture, you’re gonna have to jot this pint on your grocery list. It’s creaminess rivals real ice cream’s yet one serving maintains a low 70 calories and only one gram of fat.

The Best Diet Ice Cream Is… Halo Top Vanilla

1/2 CUP SERVING (64 G): 70 calories, 2 g fat (1 g saturated fat), 110 mg sodium, 14 g carbs (3 g fiber, 6 g sugar, 5 g sugar alcohols), 5 g protein; 10% DV calcium

Made with real milk? Check. Free of artificial sweeteners? Check. Good source of protein and calcium? Check. Low in sugar? Check. Contains healthy fats? Check. Ladies and gentlemen, your winner. (Oh, and by the way, Halo Top pints also taste really, really good!) This healthified treat is perfect for adding a scoop to your post-dinner decaf coffee, topping off your baked apples, or even tossing a spoonful into your morning smoothie. The possibilities are endless!

Final Thoughts

One of my biggest weight loss tips Is that portion control Is KEY! Some people love Ice cream more than others and the Ice cream lovers can eat a whole carton In one sitting. If you are one of those who can demolish a carton of ice cream my recommendation Is that you slowly cut back. If you try to give up Ice cream cold turkey you are more than likely going to crave It and you will lose the battle.
