Low-Sugar Ice Cream As a Part of a Healthy, Active Lifestyle
Can ice cream really be a part of an active lifestyle or a healthy diet plan?
The answer is yes! Now that there are healthier ice cream options that cut down on sugar and amp up the protein, you can regularly enjoy a frozen treat without thwarting your efforts to be healthy. Sweetie® ice cream proudly joins the ranks as the best healthy ice cream scooped up around Boston and the northeast.
What is the Problem With Sugar?
Why is sugar such a problem in our modern diets anyways? An excess of sugar in our diets can lead to weight gain, increase your risk of heart disease, increase your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, and may contribute to several other health issues. In fact, consumers ranked limiting sugar intake at the number 1 change they made in their diet in an attempt to be healthier.
This has left consumers needing something that can offer the same feeling of indulgence without the calories and negative side effects of sugar.
The Emergence of Low-Sugar Ice Cream Options
This has created a wave of new options to replace traditional products loaded with sugar and unhealthy ingredients. Healthy ice cream brands have outsourced to sugar alternatives and sugar alcohols to reduce sugar while maintaining a sweet, creamy product.
These light ice cream options give consumers permission to indulge as often as they would like without fear of excessive sugar and calories! Many options are available for popular diet fads like keto and paleo.
The First Ice Cream Sweetened with Allulose
Sweetie® is the first ice cream in the world to be sweetened with Allulose! This is a low-calorie sugar alternative naturally derived from the starch in corn kernels. According to the director of the F.D.A.’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, the latest studies suggest that allulose differs from other sugars because it is metabolized differently from the body. It features fewer calories, does not promote dental decay, and produces negligible increases in insulin levels.
Sweetie® is paving the way in perfecting a healthy, low-sugar ice cream alternative that can be incorporated into any healthy lifestyle!
Eat the Entire Pint Without Calling it a “Cheat Meal”
A benefit of having ice cream with much less sugar and calories than traditional products is that you can eat the entire point without having to call it that week’s cheat meal. An entire pint of Sweetie® ice cream contains only around 280-320 calories, making it a perfect after-dinner dessert or hot summer snack. This is a treat that can be added to your normal diet without having to feel guilty about it or ruining all of your healthy eating and calorie counting!
Enjoy a Refreshing Treat After a Hard Workout or Training Session
Another benefit of Sweetie® ice cream is that a pint may offer about 20 grams of quality protein. With more protein and fewer calories than a normal frozen treat, these options have become wildly popular among health-conscious consumers and fitness gurus!
What is the benefit of a high protein snack after a solid workout? Protein plays a central role in muscle-building and contributes to various aspects of your health including immunity, tissue repair, and blood vessel function. Many people opt for a scoop of chalky protein in water after a training session, but why not go for a pint of low-calorie ice cream? Sweetie® provides plenty of protein without ruining any of the work you put in and it just tastes better!
Sweetie® ice cream also features dietary fiber to help promote feelings of fullness so you won’t find yourself raiding the fridge later. This is helpful if you are looking to cut your calorie intake to lose weight or maintain your current weight!
Pick up a pint of Sweetie® at a store or a scoop shop on your way home from the gym for a sweet balance of healthy protein, fiber, and carbs to replenish your body after exercise!
