The Fad of Healthy Ice Cream is Here to Stay
With the emergence of several popular diets like Keto and Paleo and the continued struggle many face with losing weight and managing blood sugar, many have had to say goodbye to the sweet, sugary goodness of ice cream. Traditional ice cream options simply have too much sugar, calories, and unhealthy fats to be included in any modern healthy diet.
Another issue with traditional ice cream options is that the serving sizes are so small that you can only have a tiny amount to stay within a reasonable amount of sugar and calories. Many people want to have more than a measly half a cup serving of their refreshing treat of choice, which can double or triple the already high counts of sugar and saturated fats.
Thankfully, there are now a number of healthy ice cream brands that can give you permission to indulge as often as you’d like. These light ice cream options have ditched the excess sugar, cut down on calories, and even offer options that are keto-friendly and dairy-free. These low-calorie alternatives can help everyone enjoy that little something extra without thwarting any efforts to eat healthy.
What is in these Low-Sugar, Low-Calorie Ice Cream Options?
These guilt-free frozen treats are giving traditional ice cream a run for its money! How do they do this and what are they made of that make this possible? Halo Top has been a popular healthy ice cream choice and it is sweetened with erythritol (a sugar alcohol), cane sugar, and stevia leaf extract. By cutting down on sugar and using natural alternatives, ice cream brands like these can provide a sweet treat without the negative effects of typical sugary options.
There are also cutting edge, low-calorie sugar alternatives that are seeing a spotlight. Sweetie® is the first ice cream in the world sweetened with Allulose, a low-calorie sugar that is naturally derived from the starch in corn kernels. With the help of this natural sugar alternative, years of extensive research, and the use of quality proteins and fiber, our healthy ice cream scooped up around Boston and the northeast simply blows the others away.
Comparing Sweetie® to Popular Healthy Ice Cream Brands
Many of the most popular healthy ice cream brands you will find around stores in Boston and beyond often need to be left out to thaw for a while and can leave an odd film in a consumer’s mouth as well as an unwanted aftertaste. This is where Sweetie® comes in.
If you like the taste of Halo Top or Enlightened, you will be blown away by the incredible taste of our low-calorie ice cream! Compared to Halo Top’s vanilla ice cream product, ours offers:
- The same amount of sugar
- The same amount of calories per serving
- Fewer sugar alcohols
- More protein
- More dietary fiber
- Less sodium
- More calcium
Your time is simply too valuable to wait for sub-par ice cream to defrost! We think you will taste the difference between previously popular healthy ice cream brands and our own products that have been tweaked to perfection.
Low-Calorie, Low-Sugar, High-Protein Ice Cream
A product with less sugar, fewer calories, and more protein is something you can feel good about with every bite! Sweetie® products contain at least 5 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber.
We do all of this while still offering the same clean, sweet taste and texture you love as previously only sugar could do! Thanks to a decision by the FDA, allulose is now exempt from “Sugars” and “Added Sugars” on the label in the USA.
What is the point of having more of the good stuff and less of the bad stuff in your ice cream? Entire pints of Sweetie® contain around 280-320 calories and 20g of protein. This means you can finally eat the whole pint without any of that old guilt! Grab one on your way home from the gym as a nice reward for your hard work or grab one just because you have a craving. This is one treat you don’t have to earn.
