In case you haven't noticed, it's hot out. And we're seeking new fun, fantastic, guilt-free chilly treats. Here are FOUR of our current favorites...
Weight Watchers Candy Bar Ice Cream Bar PER SERVING (1 bar): 150 calories, 9g fat, 45mg sodium, 16g carbs, 3g fiber, 11g sugars, 3g protein -- POINTS® value 3
Um, we're not good at containing our excitement when it comes to food, so we're just gonna blurt this out... OMG, THIS ICE CREAM CANDY BAR IS ONE OF THE BEST THINGS WE HAVE TASTED THIS YEAR!!! The chocolate coating is SO creamy. The peanut butter ice cream is AMAZING, as are the peanuts and the caramel swirl. There are no words to describe the pure deliciousness of this thing. And we're NOT exaggerating at all. If there's any downside, it's only that it's a little small for the 150-calorie, 9g-of-fat price tag. But really, it's SOOOO good, that hardly matters. Nicely done, WW.
Dreyer's/Edy's Slow Churned Yogurt Blends in Tart Honey and Tart Mango PER SERVING (1/2 cup): 100 calories, 1.5g fat, 40mg sodium, 19 - 20g carbs, 0g fiber, 15 - 16g sugars, 2g protein -- POINTS® value 2*
If you're one of the bazillions of people who has become obsessed with soft-serve tart yogurt, you're gonna want to head on over to the supermarket STAT to pick up a few containers of this stuff. It's not soft serve -- it's scoopable -- but the flavors are INCREDIBLE. The Tart Honey has swirls of honey throughout, and the Tart Mango has swirly (you guessed it!) mango everywhere! The stats are so good, you can have a double portion without doing too much damage. HG Tip: Try it topped with chopped fruit for a Pinkberry-at-home experience. (Pssst... Remember, the stats on the actual packaging -- shown above -- are more accurate than the ones on the company's website.)
Blue Bunny Raspberry Vanilla Aspen Frozen Yogurt Granola Bars PER SERVING (1 bar): 150 calories, 8g fat, 50mg sodium, 18g carbs, 3g fiber, 13g sugars, 2g protein -- POINTS® value 3*
This frozen find definitely wins the award for the most unique chilly snack of the season. Each bar consists of raspberry fro yo with a layer of raspberry fruit filling and a granola topping, all covered with a vanilla yogurt coating (which tastes just like white chocolate!). These bars also come in Double Strawberry (that's good too). One of our favorite things about these bars? Since they're made with yogurt and granola, we consider them totally acceptable for pre-noon chewing. WE LOVE YOU, BLUE BUNNY!
Arctic Zero Chocolate Peanut Butter All Natural Frozen Dessert PER SERVING (1/2 cup): 32 calories, 0g fat, 9mg sodium, 11g carbs, 0g fiber, 9g sugars, 4g protein -- POINTS® value 1*
Okay, we're gonna cut to the chase here. An ENTIRE PINT of this has 128 calories. Yes, THE ENTIRE PINT. 128 calories. That's what this stuff is all about, people. If you're the type of person who likes to sit in front of the TV with an entire carton of ice cream and go to town, this is for you. It's made mostly of whey protein and a special blend of natural sugars that has way (or should we say, whey) fewer calories and impact carbs than regular sugar. (Impact carbs are the ones your body actually processes.) It doesn't taste exactly like ice cream (more like a delicious frozen protein shake!), but we love it, especially for that crazy-low calorie count. It comes in a bunch of great flavors, but the Chocolate Peanut Butter is the best for straight-from-the-carton spooning. Try the Vanilla as a FANTASTIC base for smoothies and shakes. Mmmmmm! Find it in select stores (mostly in CA) or just order online.
