Fat Free Ice Cream

Do you guys know of any low cal/ fat free ice creams?

My biggest temptations are ice cream and chocolate, so I'm trying to find ways to make them a little more healthy without tasting like cardboard!!!

I love the Dreyer's fat free flavors. Also Baskin Robbins has excellent low-fat, no sugar added ice creams. Only about 120 calories in a kid's scoop or about 160 in one regular scoop.

Skinny Cow & Turkey Hill

Hi there:

I love the Skinny Cow line of ice cream treats. My favorites are the sandwiches, which come in a variety of flavors and have only 2g of fat each. Bonus- they also have anywhere from 3-5g dietary fiber as well!

When I am not being so overly conscientious, I also turn to Turkey Hill Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough frozen yogurt. It's 3.5g of fat per 1/2 cup serving and is way better than many ice creams I've had. Yum!

Fat Free Ice Cream

Dreyer's has several choices in Fat Free, some with no sugar added. The chocolate fudge is good, as is the vanilla, the swirl, and the raspberry. Add a little lite whip cream and lite chocolate syrup, and you have a pretty yummy sundae!

Good luck!

Try a scoop of vanilla ff/sf ice cream/yogurt and put some canned pumpkin in it with with pumpkin pie spices and blend it. The added pumpkin will add lots of nutrients but not a lot of calories.

Also, I stick to my Dove dark chocolate. It's my favorite and I just keep it to 2-3 pieces when I need some chocolate. I can't stand the sugar free/fat free flavor free stuff. They're 42 cals. each and have antioxidants.

I've been getting the skinny cow ice cream sandwiches... they're great.
also, if you get past your ideas of tofu... try tofuti cuties. I hate the name, but they are very tasty little "ice cream" sandwiches. Very flavorful, and you'd NEVER know they aren't ice cream. low fat, and the same cal as skinny cow.
I will also get sorbet to cut back on cal and fat.

Haagen Dazs original plain strawberry, vanilla bean, or chocolate. Not low fat, but simple natural ingredients. No corn syrup or the other garbage.

Ice Cream and Frozen Yogurt

I like Carbawhey soft serve products. They taste amazing and and at only 23 calories for 4 ounces of the stuff, no fat, all natural, and high in protein; what more could you ask for? They also make Arctic Zero and it's 136 calories for the whole pint, no fat, 20 grams of protein, gluten-free, and it too is all natural. I'm addicted to the stuff, I can't wait till they have it in Trader Joe's down the street. I keep asking for it and they tell me to put in a request, so for now I just order it through their website.

Can anyone tell me the calorie content in any of these?

to 2:45am -

Where do you buy the Arctic Zero? It doesn't appear to be sold on the webpage - looks like you can only really buy stuff if you have an ice cream maker...

personally, I love the weight watchers cookies and cream ice cream bars - because it reminds me of an oreo blizzard or something, and they're around 100-140 calories a piece , but it's the perfect treat. From what everyon'es said, I'm going to try the skinny cow sandwiches, too :)

Carbawhey and Arctic Zero

Carbawhey is their softserve product that is available in most Penguin's frozen yogurt shops in Los Angeles as well as a bunch of other places in LA, San Diego, and Orange County. It's mainly a product in southern California but they are expanding. I sent an email asking where Arctic Zero could be purchased and they told me the closest place for me is in Van Nuys in LA county at a store called Heavenly Low Carb which sells whole foods and other high quality health products.

They will have home delivery available in LA county in the next two weeks for Arctic Zero!! I can't wait. In the email they also said that their website is under a complete renovation and will allow users the option of home delivery and for those outside the area the possibility of ordering it packed in dry ice. So my friend in Florida can finally have it shipped to him.

Skinny Cow Ice-cream

Love the skinny cow stuff - it's really good, it's 97kcals for 100g. Love the mint choc chip. Solero ice-creams are also low in kcals.

it's not fat free but I love Dreyer's slow churned 1/2 the fat ice cream. it's super creamy and has about 120 calories per serving. worth the occasional splurge.

There is a health food store by me that advertises that it's soft serve is 10 cals per ounce. I would go there on occasion for an x-small (3oz) treat, but I find that I usually want ice cream when the store is closed.

So, being the super-smart PTer that I am, I went in and bought their "pound" cup - 16oz, with a lid. Now I have a pint of the ice cream in my freezer. And, for whatever reason, I really can't eat much more than that 3oz serving at a time. the soft serve isn't bad in the freezer either. So, when my hubby pulls out his full-fat ice cream and serves some for himself, I have yummy chocolate-peanut butter ice cream to have right along wiht him, for 30-40 cals!

12:11pm poster again

Sorry; I live in Chicago; thought I'd post that, since the CarbAWhey poster mentioned that their soft serve is only in stores in CA. Just wanted to show that there are others out there! Although, mine's 40 cals for 4oz, not 23... Still really light though, considering most pints of low fat or froyo are still at least 130 for the same amount!

skinny cow chocolate cones!!! 150 cal. a bit high but so worth it!

BIg fan of the Edy's low fat (130 calories per 1/2 cup serving). I think it might be Dryers in other areas of the country. I've been eating it for years (used to be called Edy's Grand Light, but they changed the name a couple years back).

Another easy trick - add cinnamon to vanilla ice cream for a little extra flavor.

Ben & Jerry's makes a "Lite" version of their Half-Baked which is my and my daughter's favorite.. We usually would get a pint and share it.. But now they have the frozen yogurt version (Brownies and Choc. Chip Cookie Dough) and it is delicious.. I dont know about the difference in calories/fat, etc.. But its a good alternative for a treat :o)

Ben and Jerry's

It's 190 calories per half cup? That means this Ben and Jerry's frozen yogurt is almost 800 calories for the whole pint! That's ludicrous. And they call it their lite version? I'll stick to my Arctic Zero and Carbawhey frozen yogurt baby

Funny, but I bought myself a pint of really low-cal ice cream from a local place (10 cals per oz - almost as good as Carbawhey), so a half cup would be 40 cals, and the entire pint is only 160. So now that it's there, and not a special treat, and I can have it whenever I want it, w/o feeling bad, it's been sitting there for nearly a month and I've barely eaten half of it!

Weird how things stop calling your name once they're not "forbidden"!

If I have it I don't need it

I am right with you 1:09. I have small servings of real icecream in the freezer, and a stash of real chocolate in the top cupboard. I almost never get into them but I know they are ready for me if I so choose. It really works. I also have a five year old pack of cigeretts in the bottom of my closet. It ain't never gonna happen! But it works for me.

They have a new website!

The Carbawhey people have now listed the nearest locations of Carbawhey and stores that carry Arctic Zero! And since I check it a few days ago they've added more locations. The site is still
