Ask anyone who knows me and they’ll tell you my love for ice cream. I keep hoping soon that I will grow out of it, but so far it hasn’t happened. I have been trying to pick “healthier” ice cream options, and my book Eat This Not That, helps me choose. It is quite surprising some things you pick aren’t the better choice.
Eat This: Edy’s Slow Churned Yogurt Blends
100 calories for 1/2 cup 3 g fat and 13 g sugars
Not That: Edy’s Slow Churned Mint Chocolate Chip
170 calories for 1/2 cup 9 g fat and 15 g sugars
The chips are made of partially hydrogenated coconut oil- a no no!
Eat This: Haagen Dazs Chocolate Sorbet (1/2 cup)
130 calories, .5 g fat, and 20 g sugar
Not That: Haagen Dazs Mango Sorbet (1/2 cup)
120 calories, 0 g fat, and 36 grams of sugar.
Unfortunately a half cup serving has nearly as much sugar in it as a can of coke. So you are better of going with the Chocolate sorbet and sacrificing 10 calories.
Eat This: Skinny Cow Vanilla with Caramel low fat Ice Cream Cone
150 calories, 3 g fat, and 19 g sugar.
Not That: Nestle’s Drumstick
360 Calories (Doh!) 22 g fat, and 29 g sugar
Eat This: Klondike Slim A Bear
100 calories, 1.5 g fat, and 10 g sugar
Not That: Weight Watchers Vanilla Round Ice Cream Sandwich
140 calories, 2 g fat, and 12 g sugar
These are the best for a quick fix with only 15 calories!!
