I am addicted to Halo Top and Enlightened frozen dessert. They run between 60-90 calories for 1/2 cup and have around 7 grams of protein, 3-5 grams of fiber and usually under 7 g of sugar.

Going to need to check out the freezer area at the grocery store soon for healthy options. I don't buy a lot of cold treats in the winter, but I know without air conditioning I will like to have something cold on hand to
cool me off.

I loved the Healthy Choice Fudge Bars and use to get them where we use to live. Unfortunately, the stores around here don't carry it and in fact, they carry very few of the healthy options listed. I would enjoy a little ice cream every once in a while, but now I just skip it entirely since I can't find healthy choices where we now live and I have even made requests at customer service, but that didn't help. Oh Well, I am probably better off without it anyway.

Halo Top was recommended to me. I am trying to get my supermarket to offer it.

I care more about limiting added sugars and I don't worry about healthy fats. A lot of the ice cream substitutes given here are really high in added sugar.

I make a really nice coconut milk ice cream with two cans of full fat coconut milk, 1/3 cup cocoa powder and 1/4 cup honey. Mix and pour into an ice cream maker.

Or I make an "ice cream" with frozen strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. Maybe half a ripe banana but no added sugar.

I always keep overripe bananas and freeze them to make ice cream at home quick! I love So Delicious, but to save money and time I keep the frozen bananas and then add strawberries or chocolate almond milk (just a splash) and maybe some vegan chocolate protein powder. No it's not as fatty as ice cream, but it's definitely delicious and MUCH better for your body!

Article states, "If you want total control over what goes into your ice cream, consider buying your own ice cream maker."

The only way I have "total control" over ice cream is by not having it in my house. ;)

Frozen bananas taste like frozen bananas, not satisfying at all. We keep Skinny Cow bars at home at all times! It's our daily 7:00 PM treat, keeps us sticking to our diet plan. Healthy food is really not that tasty, why do you think people feel the need to indulge ourselves often, truth be told, having some daily ice cream helps a lot.

You don't need to get frozen yogurt with live bacterial cultures, because freezing the yogurt will kill the bacteria. Don't bother. If you really need probiotics in your diet and you're short of funds, skip the frozen yogurt and go for the kind in the refrigerator case.

My only thought was whether or not the Kiwis and the US were converted into the SAME gallon. The US gallon is NOT the same as the one the "rest" of the world uses (mainly Commonwealth countries) we use (or used to use) the Imperial gallon.

Stepfanie's recipe for the frozen banana dessert is as good or better than ice cream - and much healthier!!! (and this is coming from a real ice cream lover who ran an ice cream business where we made our own wonderful ice creams)
