Ice cream has always been a place of steep nutritional compromise—you either go whole-hog and eat the real, butter-fat-laden deal, or you settle for some suspicious, chemical-based foam and get a stomachache. For those who love cold, creamy deliciousness but don’t want to wind up in a food coma, the situation has been truly unjust.
Life happens. And when it does, sometimes all you want to do is hang out with your friends, Ben and Jerry, or their Danish-sounding cousin, Häagen-Dazs.
We get it though. You still want to fit into your pants after getting off your emotional roller coaster. But "healthy" frozen dessert options can be actually offensive: Water and pea protein do not make ice cream.
I mean seriously, it was so good I finished the whole freaking pint in approximately 30 seconds. With any other ice cream brand, I would probably feel a little guilty for eating the whole thing, but with Halo Top, the whole pint is typically under 300 calories! (YES PLEASE!)
Halo Top Ice Cream is probably known best as the low-calorie dessert. The high-protein sweet averages about a svelte 240 calories a pint, a quarter of the calories compared to regular store ice cream's pints. Obviously perfect for those looking to stay a little fitter, without denying their sweet tooth.
When we heard about “healthy ice cream” from a company called Halo Top, we were skeptical. Because we assumed it would either A) not actually be good for you and/or B) taste too good for you (i.e., gross).
Well, we’ve tried all seven flavors--from vanilla bean and chocolate to lemon cake and espresso chip--and are pleased to report that we were totally mistaken.
