In the summer time its all about the ice cream. I always limit my intake on ice cream because of all the sugars, and artificial sweeteners. While I was on Instagram one day, I cam across a sponsored post from Halo Top advertising protein ice cream. An ice cream that had protein in it. I’m sold. While I was at the grocery store I found Halo Top Ice Cream, and I bought a couple pints making sure to mix up the flavors. When I got home, I decided to try a pint. I was in Heaven.
Halo Top is made by a creamery in Los Angeles, and it is a vegetarian friendly ice cream that is all natural with no artificial sweeteners, no corn syrup, and no synthetic growth hormones. Halo Top is a low calorie, high protein, and low sugar ice cream. It tastes delicious and now I know what ice cream is suppose to taste like. Halo Top is also low in carbs, and low in fat. Its a win win for Halo Top. I bet your asking since Halo Top using no artificial sweeteners, then how do they sweeten their ice cream? Halo Top uses organic stevia, which is a plant that is native to Paraguay. Its been used to sweeten drinks and foods for nearly two hundred (200) years. They use stevia as a sugar replacement. They also use Eythritol which is another all natural sweetener that is found in grapes and pears. Technically, eythritol is a sugar alcohol, it is unlike the others because it does not affect one’s blood glucose and does not cause bloating.
When you think about it, eating one (1) full pint, and yes, I eat the entire pint in one (1) sitting, of Halo Top Ice Cream gives you the following: 20g of protein, 240 to 320 calories, 8g of fat, and 20g of carbs. That sounds excellent to me. My son has deemed Halo Top my healthy ice cream. So far I have tried chocolate, pistachio, cookies and cream, and peanut butter cup. So far, these flavors have not disappointed and are absolutely delicious.
Its difficult to imagine what my life was like before Halo Top Ice Cream. Not only can I have ice cream that is all natural, low in sugar, and high in protein. Now, I can have my ice cream and eat it too. To find where Halo Top is sold near you, and for more information on their ice cream, please visit their official website. Trust me, “save the bowl” and just eat the pint. Its good for you.
