I used to feel left out of the summertime ritual of eating ice cream.
It’s not fun to have a food allergy or intolerance. Ever since I discovered I was lactose intolerant, I’ve stayed away from dairy, especially ice cream. As yummy as ice cream is, it’s not worth the stomach bloating and soreness. The last few years, I’ve been amazed at the number of frozen desserts available that are lactose free.
I’ve purchased a pint of Arctic Zero once before but I felt giddy when I opened my box from them. I had no idea there were so many flavors to choose from. I was suddenly faced with a first world problem. Which flavor would I try first?
I admit I have a weak spot for dark chocolate and salted caramel so naturally, I dug into the Salted Caramel flavor first. It did not disappoint. I really liked it. I had already purchased the Brownie Blast flavor and enjoyed the two combined. While I do love chocolate, the Rocky Road and Brownie Blast flavors didn’t end up on the favorites list. I ended up liking the Salted Caramel and the Cookie Shake the best. The most pleasant surprise was the Cherry Chocolate Chunk. I am not usually a fan of cherry flavored anything but I loved the ARCTIC ZERO frozen dessert in this flavor. My husband like the Peanut Butter Swirl but I’m not a fan of peanut butter so I didn’t love it. However, I did like that it wasn’t a strong peanut butter flavor and it tasted great mixed with some of the other flavors. The Cake Batter ended up being my least favorite but my son liked it. He was thrilled when I told him he could eat the whole thing by himself.
Besides the great flavors, Arctic Zero has a lot of other likable features. I try to watch what I eat and exercise almost everyday so I can keep my health and weight in check. I love that ARTIC ZERO creamy pints are fat free and only 35 calories per serving. A whole creamy pint is only 150 calories. I’ve tried to eat a whole pint in a day and can’t. The chunky pints are 75 calories per serving and 300 calories for the whole pint. Again, I wouldn’t eat a whole pint and I’m satisfied with one half cup serving after dinner. ARCTIC ZERO is flavored with monk fruit, a natural sweetener with a low glycemic index, making it a great frozen treat for diabetics too. As a bonus, each pint contains 3-4 grams of protein and 2-3 grams of fiber.
The only thing I didn’t like about ARCTIC ZERO is even after letting it sit out for about 10 minutes as the instructions suggest, it doesn’t hold together in a scoop. This means I can’t really put it into an ice cream cone. Instead, I had to break apart my sugar cone and add it to the bowl. Overall, I was ecstatic to find a new frozen dessert and love that I don’t have to feel left out when the rest of the family has ice cream.
