In celebration of National Ice Cream Month, we're gabbing about mind-blowing market finds, our best freezy-good recipe swaps, and more. YUMMY!

 
  Crave-worthy Freezer-Aisle Finds!


Dreyer's/Edy's Slow Churned Limited Edition Sunny Salted Caramel Pretzel
1/2 cup: 120 calories, 4g fat, 105mg sodium, 18g carbs, 0g fiber, 12g sugars, 2g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*

ALERT: Whether the cartons in your city say Dreyer's or Edy's, get your hands on this stuff PRONTO... It's only around through August! Like the name implies, this vanilla ice cream is crammed with pretzel pieces and swirled with salted caramel. YESSSS! And like all of the Slow Churned varieties (our FAVORITE line of guilt-free ice cream, by the way), it has half the fat of regular ice cream and 1/3 fewer calories. Heads up: This flavor is also available in the Grand lineup; that version has higher stats, so make sure to get the Slow Churned!

Breyers Blasts! Golden Oreo Cookies & Cream
1/2 cup: 140 calories, 4.5g fat, 65mg sodium, 23g carbs, 0g fiber, 14g sugars, 2g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4*

Stealth find! It's not marked as low in fat or calories, but the stats are totally impressive. We've never had anything quite like this vanilla-on-vanilla sweet cookie blend. It's SO GOOD. You need to try it as soon as possible. P.S. Most of the Breyers Blasts! varieties are pretty reasonable in the stats department -- just check the nutritional panel before you buy.


Weight Watchers Dark Chocolate Dulcé de Leché Ice Cream Bar
1 bar: 120 calories, 4.5g fat, 105mg sodium, 19g carbs, 2g fiber, 14g sugars, 2g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3

Sure, this pick has been around for a while now, but that doesn't mean we're sick of it. The turbo-tasty treat deserves a li'l hat tip, since it combines two of our favorite dessert flavors: chocolate and caramel! And not just caramel... decadent dulcé de leché. AHHHH!!! We're talking dulcé de leché ice cream PLUS a caramel swirl AND a dark-chocolate coating. These half-dipped bars make us smile every time, and we've got a feeling you'll fall for 'em too.


Skinny Cow Limited Editions Snickerdoodle Sandwich
1 sandwich: 140 calories, 2g fat, 105mg sodium, 29g carbs, 3g fiber, 14g sugars, 4g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4*

All of the Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches are great... but this treat is a serious standout. Cinnamon ice cream between oatmeal cookie wafers? MADNESS. Also in the Limited Editions lineup? Portion-controlled ice cream cups in Caramel Mochaccino, Cupcake Batter, and Mint To Be; Pretty in Pink Velvet Truffle Bars; and more! Snag 'em while you can, because they're only available for a year. Luckily for us all, there's plenty of the year left...


And we've mentioned Enlightened The Good-For-You Ice Cream enough times in the past few months that we'd sound obsessive if we went on and on about it again... so click here for all the need-to-know info. MAJOR BREAKOUT PRODUCT, PEOPLE!!!

 
  DIY Swaps! So, You Want…


An Ice Cream Sandwich? This two-ingredient concoction smushes ice cream between VitaTop halves! And here's a little Hungry Girl secret (that's not much of a secret if you've been getting our daily emails for a while)... We make incredible ice cream sandwich swaps that contain no actual ice cream. Click here for freezy sandwiches inspired by cannoli, peach cobbler, and Ben & Jerry's Late Night Snack ice cream, and click here for a s'mores-y treat!

Some Ice Cream Cake? Satisfy your need with our recipe for adorable, pre-portioned Mini Ice Cream Cakes! Or give this downright-amazing Freezy Downside-Up PB Dream Pie a try. Last but not least, we present our Banana Split Pie!!!

A Milkshake? Don't hit up an ice cream shop or fast food joint -- those shakes are WAY too heavy. Enjoy our classic Cookie-rific Ice Cream Freeze or this Rockin' Chocin' Banana Shake. Rather kick it old school? We've got vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry shakes too!
