The sun is shining, the weather is warmer, and there’s nothing like ice cream to cool you down. But conventional ice cream can be heavy and full of unnecessary ingredients. Enter Halo Top. At Halo Top Creamery, they love ice cream and know you do too (don’t we all?). So they decided to make and craft ice cream that could be enjoyed as a regular part of your diet.  Their secret is organic stevia. Stevia is a plant native to Paraguay that’s been used to sweeten food and beverages for more than 200 years. And because it’s so tasty, Halo Top uses it as a sugar replacement. They also use Erythritol, which though it has a rather scientific-sounding name, is actually another sweetener found in fruits like pears and grapes. Technically a sugar alcohol, it’s not like the other because Erythritol doesn’t affect blood glucose or cause bloating.

And you can eat the whole pint on movie night because this low calorie, high protein ice cream has just 280-360 calories per pint. Yes, the whole pint! Plus, it has less fat and carbs than other options, and even carries a little extra dose of fiber. With dairy and dairy-free options, dig into delicious flavors like Birthday Cake, Cinnamon Roll, Mochi Green Tea, and so many more. Find them in the frozen section at your local Earth Fare!
