If you read my blog, you know how much I love ice cream. It is probably my favorite food. Because it’s so high in fat, carbs and calories, I don’t eat it as much as I like. I’ve tried many types of light ice creams, low-fat, low-carb, almond milk, etc, but none of them had that pure milk taste and creamy texture of ice cream. That is, not until I tried Halo Top. I saw Halo Top in the ice cream freezer at Whole Foods and decided I’d try it since I had tried all the others. I didn’t have high expectations for a light ice cream. I got the strawberry flavor. I was happy to see that the ice cream was low in fat, carbs and calories but high in protein. And it was made from hormone-free milk, cage-free eggs and stevia. So all around, it was a win-win. But how did it taste? It tasted great. It had a real strawberry flavor and it tasted like it was made from milk and cream. The best part was the texture–now, I will admit it was a bit icy throughout, but it still had a creamy texture that didn’t feel artificial like the commercial ice creams. So I feel like I have found a light ice cream that I can eat without guilt and actually enjoy! I’m looking forward to trying the other three flavors–vanilla bean, chocolate and lemon cake.
