Guilt-Free Frozen Treats

We are excited to share one of our fave stories from Prevention here on FitSugar!


Sorbets, ice cream sandwiches, and other healthy frozen desserts
By Molly Raisch, Prevention

Ice cream is the perfect remedy to steamy, hot weather, but sometimes the calorie counts on the carton are downright scary. That's why we found frozen desserts that don't melt under scrutiny. These healthy treats get our vote (with a cherry on top!).

Nondairy
So Delicious Dairy Free Vanilla Frozen Dessert (½ cup)
Nutrition: 130 cal; 1 g pro; 13 g sugar; 3 g fiber; 3 g fat
Like: This soy treat tastes just like the real deal, making it perfect for people who have lactose intolerance.
Healthy takeaway: Some dairy-free varieties — based on soy, coconut, and rice milk — can be high in fat and sugar.

Sorbet
Ciao Bella Blood Orange Sorbet (½ cup)
Nutrition: 60 cal; 0 g pro; 16 g sugar; 0 g fiber; 0 g fat
Like: A keeper! It's bursting with flavor, plus it has 50 percent of your daily vitamin C intake.
Healthy takeaway: Many sorbets have no real fruit in sight. Steer clear of ones with ice cream swirls, which drive up the calories and fat.

Ice-Cream Sandwich

Nutrition: 100 cal; 2 g pro; 6 g sugar; 0 g fiber; 0 g fat
Like: You're less likely to overindulge because these organic novelty bars are portion controlled for you.
Healthy takeaway: Some ice-cream sandwiches swap the wafers for cookies, doubling the calories.

Ice Pop

Edy's All Natural Fruit Bars Strawberry (1 bar)
Nutrition: 80 cal; 0 g pro; 20 g sugar; 1 g fiber; 0 g fat
Like: The real strawberry bits in this pop taste like summer. No high fructose corn syrup here.
Healthy takeaway: Beware varieties that resemble a chemistry project: Would you like a little sodium benzoate with your polysorbate 80?
