Is Pro-Yo Protein Ice Cream Good?

Polish Off a Pint of This Ice Cream, Get 40 Grams of Protein: Who’s the Real Winner?

We've seen our share of healthy ice creams this year, from Halo Top (reigning taste test champion) to Enlightened to even Greek yogurt options like Yasso. In fact, there are so many options now, it can be hard to choose. So when ProYo's low-fat, high-protein ice cream came into our office, we were wondering if it could hold up against the competition. Spoiler alert: it did — in spades.

The frosty treats use a split of real sugar and sugar alcohol (sugar alcohol that is also used in Halo Top) to create a lower-sugar option while minimizing the "chemical" taste, and it payed off — from "Shockingly delightful" mint chip to the universally adored coconut (a typically polarizing flavor), Pro-Yo blew us away. While ProYo is twice as high in calories (their vanilla is 120 per serving versus Halo Top vanilla's 60), it also doubles the protein content with 10 grams per half cup. ProYo is still low-fat, though carb content is higher in ProYo than it is in Halo Top.
