Last week we discussed how ice cream really isn't as bad as it's made out to be, but that doesn't mean plenty of people with specific dietary needs don't need to be mindful of the kinds they ingest. My own needs mean that I need to avoid sugar-laden ice cream as much as possible, but I don't like too much artificial sweetness. So what does that leave me with?
I really have a lot of choices, and the Halo Top brand is probably my favorite. Brands like Halo, Enlightened and Rebel all have a lot of great flavors that are continuing to expand, and they range in being very low sugar to having simply less sugar than most brands. I just heard about Nick's, a Swedish-style light ice cream, that I'm also interested in trying.
There are also gluten-free ice creams, sorbets and fruit-based ice creams people make at home, such as blending frozen fruits for healthier options. Any of these could satisfy a sweet tooth while still delivering an icy cold treat, especially in the hot months.
What kinds of ice cream do you like to satisfy your cravings while staying as close to your nutritional needs as possible? Share them in the chat.
