6 Healthy Frozen Dessert Finds

Jul 26 2017
Question@2x Hi Lisa,

It's been super hot outside, and I'm often tempted to dive face first into a gallon of ice cream. But I don't want to outgrow my pants by fall! Could you recommend some smart frozen sweets I can stash in my freezer?

Answer@2x Hi Desperate for Chilly Desserts,

The dog days of summer are here, for sure! Not to worry; you can feed your cravings for all things cold and sweet without sabotaging your diet! Here are some of my favorite frozen dessert finds...

Enlightened The Good-For-You Ice Cream in Caramel Oatmeal Cookie Crunch

1/2 cup: 100 calories, 3g total fat (2g sat fat), 80mg sodium, 18g carbs, 5g fiber, 6g sugars, 7g protein -- SmartPoints® value 4*

Pints of low-calorie, protein-boosted ice cream are everywhere these days. But I have to say, the ones from Enlightened are the BEST by far! This stuff is creamy and rich, and it's loaded with mix-ins that are so delicious they'll make your head spin! This fun flavor is my top pick, but I also love the Birthday Cake and Chocolate Peanut Butter! With stats this impressive, feel free to have a few servings at once...

Yasso Frozen Greek Yogurt Bars in Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

1 bar: 100 calories, 2g total fat (1.5g sat fat), 50mg sodium, 17g carbs, 0g fiber, 13g sugars, 5g protein -- SmartPoints® value 5*

Portion control + decadent taste = a big win in my book! These bars serve up a nice dose of protein, too, which I love. And they're SO creamy! These will obliterate a craving for chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream STAT. Check out all the flavors: There are FIFTEEN in all. Then fire up your car's AC, and head to the supermarket ASAP.

Dole Dippers Dark Chocolate Covered Real Banana Slices

4 slices (1 pack): 100 calories, 4.5g total fat (3g sat fat), 10mg sodium, 13g carbs, 4g fiber, 7g sugars, 1g protein -- SmartPoints® value 5*

Take your snack game to the next level with these freezy chocolate-coated banana coins! The single-serve packs are perfect for keeping portions in check. And the combination of wholesome fruit with indulgent chocolate makes for a fantastically balanced dessert. Take a peek at the entire Dole Dippers line, featuring pineapple, strawberry, and banana with almonds!

Frozen Mango Chunks (No Sugar Added)

1 cup: 120 calories, 0g total fat (0g sat fat), 0mg sodium, 32g carbs, 3.5g fiber, 28.5g sugars, 0.5g protein -- SmartPoints® value 0*

Smoothie lovers aren't the only ones who should stock up on frozen fruit. (Although, smoothie heads should check out my smoothie must-haves!) I snack on this stuff straight, and it's such a refreshing li'l treat. The natural sweetness and tropical taste are beyond amazing. Just thaw your mango for a few minutes (so you don't break a tooth!), and dig in. And remember to check the ingredients and avoid added sugar. Another frozen fruit must? Grapes... DIY!

All-Natural GoodPop Frozen Pops in Orange N' Cream

1 bar: 80 calories, 4.5g total fat (4g sat fat), 20mg sodium, 10g carbs, 0g fiber, 9g sugars, 0g protein -- SmartPoints® value 5*

Creamsicle lovers, take note! Made with coconut cream and orange juice, these frozen pops are vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free... Plus, they have just 80 calories each! They used to be tricky to locate, but now they're pretty easy to track down. Try all the fun flavors: Banana Cinnamon, Strawberry Lemonade, and more... Mmmmm!

Skinny Truwhip and So Delicious CocoWhip! Light

2 tbsp.: 25 calories, 1 - 1.5g total fat (1 - 1.5g sat fat), 0 - 5mg sodium, 4g carbs, 0g fiber, 2 - 3g sugars, 0g protein -- SmartPoints® value 1*

I know these technically aren't frozen desserts, but they're too good to leave out! If you think you can't have a dollop of whipped topping, think again. Both Truwhip and So Delicious make natural whip without too many calories. Perfect for topping off your Enlightened ice cream or whipping up this Strawberry Shortcake in a Mug. They’re found in the supermarket freezer aisle; keep ‘em in your freezer at home, and they'll last a long time.
