Best tip I've ever heard for portion control in ice cream: use baby size bowls and baby size spoons. The sizes that you buy in the baby section of the store for actual babies. You may feel silly, but those are the portions and bite sizes that are best for high calorie ice cream.

I recommend Halo Top - not quite ice cream, but a frozen treat with a nutrition profile similar to a protein shake. It depends on the flavor, but calories range from 240-329 FOR THE ENTIRE PINT! (I don't typically eat the whole pint since I like tokeep my portions small, but my husband routinely does). Decent swap for ice cream/froyo if you want/need a frozen treat and/or a way to get extra protein in!

I'm with "PRUSSIANETTE" on this one. Ice cream (including fat free/sugar-free/gelato/frozen yogurt) has no place in my diet, or even in my house! Too easy for me to binge on it.

It's been hard to find good low-sugar ice cream options at my local grocery, as many of the big brands like Halo Top are only sold in the US. I like the guidelines you give, I have written them down and will be on the hunt!

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.
