Summer always reminds me of the beach and of course, ice cream. Growing up I loved Mr. Softie (didn't we all??), and would always run out outside when I heard the truck coming up the street with its distinctive jingle! My family also vacationed in Cape Cod every summer and we always had homemade ice cream every night at a different place. In high school, my friends and I often went out to get Italian ices before meeting up with a group of friends. We even had a couple of reunions this summer, along with our favorite cream Italian Ices. As an adult, I feel in love with blizzards at DQ ( chocolate and peanut butter cups). DQ did not exist on Long Island while I was growing up. Up until recently, I thought I was eating better when I got frozen yogurt; that is until, I added the peanut butter sauce and PB cups. But as I try to move towards a healthier lifestyle; I had to give that up that summer ice cream fix! I was determined to find something that was healthier, but still tasted good. The struggle was real, friends. That is until I found these....Arctic Zero Fit Frozen Desserts!
(Notice all have some form of chocolate in them). These are still a much healthier version than what most of us would normally have on a hot summer day, including frozen yogurt without any extras! Now this may not be new to you, but being that I have no Whole Foods or Trader Joe's near my house; it was a total treat to find these awesome treats in my local supermarket. The entire pint has 150 calories; 35 calories per serving! They are gluten free, lactose free and GMO free and most are even nut free and fat free. These three flavors have 3 grams of protein (whey protein), and only 5 grams of sugar. Normally, I could eat a whole pint in one sitting, but one serving size was perfect for me. This has been my replacement from all fatty summer treats... Ok, not all, but most!
Oh, before I forget, Arctic Zero does offer fruit versions of this frozen treat too! I'm just a chocoholic fit girl! Try some and let me know your favorite flavors!
