Arctic Zero Fit Frozen Desserts | A Review

As I've mentioned before, I'm not one to really crave sugar. Now don't get me wrong, I do appreciate a good dessert, but I would much prefer to snack on a bag of salt covered, crunchy potato chips. But when I am in the mood for something sweet, ice cream is on the top of the list. I was so thrilled when Arctic Zero wanted to share some of their sweet treats with me! I've never had their ice cream before so I was excited to give a few of their flavors a try. 
I consider myself to be pretty health conscious in my food choices and wouldn't normally reach for a pint of ice cream on a weekday. I mean, after working hard in the gym, the last thing I want to do is blow it all by consuming an excessive amount of calories and sugar. At the same time, I also don't want to completely deprive myself, which is why I was thrilled when I read the label on these different flavored ice creams. Not only are they low in calories, fat and sugar, they are also free from artificial flavors, sweeteners and coloring. The perfect guiltless treat to occasionally reward myself with .
Here are just a few of the flavors they have to choose from. 

Brownie Blast: Only 75 calories, 1.5 grams of fat and 8 grams of sugar in 1/2 cup. 
 Cake Batter: This one has only 35 calories, no fat and 5 grams of sugar in 1/2 cup!
 Poppin' Pomegranate: Again, 35 calories, no fat and 5 grams of sugar in 1/2 cup.
 Banana Pudding:75 calories, 1.5 grams of fat and 8 grams of sugar in 1/2 cup. 
 Snickerdoodle Dandy: 75 calories, 1.5 grams of fat and 8 grams of sugar in 1/2 cup.
I really did enjoy them all, but I think the cake batter was my favorite. It's recommended that they sit out for a few minutes before serving so that they have more of a creamy consistency. I'll be honest, I've had fat free ice creams, sugar free ice creams, low-calorie ice creams, you name it, and most of them seem like they are missing something, but not these. Don't get me wrong, it's not like diving into a pint of Ben and Jerry's cookie dough, but I didn't expect it to be. For an ice cream that prides itself as being a fit frozen dessert, without sacrificing flavor,  Arctic Zero delivers.  
These are great to keep on hand when I want just a quick bite of something sweet and not feel guilty about it. 

Have you tried Arctic Zero before? If so, what are some of your favorite flavors? I would love to give some of the others a try.

  1. I have tried one of the flavors and it just wasn't for me. I think it was peanut butter and it had a super funky taste. I will try the cake batter next!!!

  2. I've really been wanting to try the Arctic Zero ice cream bars...they sound so good! Halo Top is my favorite healthier ice cream..but SO hard to find! Arctic Zero used to be that way too, but it's gotten more popular. So thankful there's healthy options out there!

    1. You can check their website and search by zip code to see if stores near you carry them, otherwise they ship as well. :) The banana pudding is great!
