No, not THAT kind of ex, silly.
Arctic Zero to hit the shelves at my local store, I finally got to try it!
Me and ice cream broke up so long ago, I can't even remember how delicious it was. Sure, I could still have real ice cream in moderation, but moderation isn't part of my vocabulary.
My review of Arctic Zero, is don't try it if you still remember how ice cream tastes, because you probably wont like it. It is really good, but it's an alternative, not a substitute.
It is sweet, but it's a healthy sweet, it isn't artificial sugar sweet. It's enough to still taste like a treat. Even though you could eat the whole pint at 150 calories, it is also suprisingly filling, and I couldn't finish it. Also, it has a creamy texture without the dairy.
I tried the chocolate peanut butter, and mint chocolate cookie. (there are no cookies or peanut butter in either), vanilla maple, and chocolate. All were good, but I liked the peanut butter better because I have a thing for peanut butter.
It is also all natural, and I felt pretty good about eating it:
INGREDIENTS: PURIFIED WATER, WHEY PROTEIN
CANE SUGAR, CHICORY ROOT, DUTCH PROCESSED COCOA POWDER WITH ALKALI, GUAR
GUM, XANTHAN GUM, NATURAL FLAVORS, SEA SALT, MONK FRUIT CONCENTRATE.
And since it is cool treat season, I'll share a dee-lish recipe for "ice cream pie" that is also somewhat healthy.
2 Yoplait whipp's yogurts (any flavor, but I like key lime, chocolate mousse, or orange creamsicle for this)
1 regular container of sugar free cool whip
1 reduced calorie graham pie crust
Fold the (thawed) cool whip and the two containers of yogurt together, and spread into the pie crust. You can top with more cool whip if you want. Freeze. And enjoy the best thing you ever had!
And if you are like me, and you can't be trusted with an entire pie in the house if it is just for you, instead of a graham crust, use 1 reduced fat nilla wafer in the bottom of a freezer type container, and top with some of the filling and make little individual "pies".
Now, go enjoy some sweet treats and don't feel bad about it!!
