We recently made some drastic changes in our eating habits. We are eating more proteins, green vegetables and cutting out most sweets and sugars. The major change came when we found out my husband needed to start eating foods that were low glycemic. The whole family decided to get on board with a new healthier lifestyle. The one thing I miss the most is ice cream! Fortunately, I have found Arctic Zero Fit Frozen Desserts and luckily they can be found at select Target stores nationwide.
Arctic Zero is sweetened with monk fruit extract (a natural sweetener that’s roughly 150 times sweeter than sugar, but is low glycemic) and a touch of organic cane sugar. There are no artificial sweeteners or sugar alcohols.
Arctic Zero is a low-calorie dessert. Not only is it low calorie it is also low fat, lactose-free, gluten-free and low-sugar. The Chunky pints are only 300 calories for the whole pint and the Creamy pints are only 150 calories per pint! They are perfect for those with dietary restrictions like diabetics and those that are lactose intolerant or gluten-sensitive. It also makes a great treat for those of us that want to indulge without the guilt.
We have many friends and family members that are gluten-free. Coming up with a dessert for them has always seemed like a task, now I have a great dessert option for them. There are tons of great flavors to please them all. My family recently tried some of the Arctic Zero Fit Frozen Dessert flavors that you can find at select Target stores:
- Cherry Chocolate Chunk
- Peanut Butter Swirl
- Rocky Road Trip
- Cake Batter
- Brownie Blast
- Cookie Shake
- Salted Caramel.
The Cake Batter flavor is one of the Creamy pints that has only 35 calories per serving (or 150 for the entire pint). That is so low! Plus, it is packed with protein! Arctic Zero is handcrafted from premium ingredients, including hormone-free whey protein and fiber. The Cake Batter flavor was very subtle and the flavor of this one on it’s own didn’t wow me, but when I mixed it with strawberries I really enjoyed it. It gave it a nice strawberries and cream flavor. Because it’s so low cal you can really have fun with the mix-ins. This one would be good with some chocolate chips mixed in.
My daughter’s favorite ice cream is Rocky Road so she grabbed a pint kicked up her feet and dug in. She’s loves the fact that she can actually eat the entire pint (she’s always wanted to do that). She loved the mix-ins, especially the marshmallows.
As soon as I took a bite of the Cherry Chocolate Chunk I declared it my favorite! I am a big fan of chocolate and fruit mixed together. The cherry flavor of the ice cream is just the right amount of sweet and fruity. The chocolate chunks are the perfect addition.
Lastly, I tried the Peanut Butter Swirl and decided it was my new favorite. I never thought to combine peanut butter with white chocolate chips, but it is so good. This is great all on it’s own, but I knew the Arctic Zero frozen dessert would also make the perfect base for a milkshake. The final result is a yummy milkshake that is healthier than one that is made with regular ice cream. Here is what you need to make one of your own.
Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Swirl Milkshake
- 1 cup Arctic Zero Peanut Butter Swirl
- 1 Banana
- 1/2 cup Chocolate Milk, Chocolate Almond or Coconut Milk
Throw everything in a blender and mix until smooth. Pour into a glass and enjoy. I added some chocolate chips to the top of mine for a fun treat.
You can use the product locator on the Arctic Zero website to find a location near you that carries Arctic Zero Fit Frozen Desserts or you can use Target.com and get the store information on the product page of each pint flavor. Each pint retails for $4-$5.
If you have dietary restrictions or are just looking to eat healthier this is a great dessert option. These frosty, creamy treats are the perfect way to treat yourself without the guilt. Dig in!
