Ice Cream Indulgence

Summer time and ice cream go hand in hand, but what if you need to watch the calorie intake or want to keep those coronary arteries flowing? As a self proclaimed ice cream snob I had not been able to compromise on the taste of real ice cream and settle for any of the low fat versions. And so as a physician, I have had to make that painful decision of will it be real ice cream or no ice cream. Harsh, isn't it? However, recently I discovered a happy compromise of Healthy Choice Premium Fudge Bars. Each bar has only 80 calories and 1 gram of saturated fat, and the taste is surprisingly satisfying. In comparison 1/2 cup (and who can really eat just 1/2 cup) of Haagen-Dazs coffee ice cream, my favorite splurge, has 270 calories and 11 grams of saturated fat. This may be a trade off that we can live with. In case you are wondering I have no financial or other interest in this company.

Skinny Cow icecream bars are also quite good. Similar nutritional info as the Healthy Choice bars.

so, are saying it is okay to indulge in Haagen Daz?

Jason Mock said...

I read that she's simply stating that generally that's her biggest indulgence, but replacing that with the Healthy Choice version would be a good compromise and a better choice. Braum's sells a few items that are around the same category that are pretty good. My wife for one has definately found lower calerie options to be a better alternative than the low/no fat or no sugar products. Still not the greatest thing for you, but definately better than the whole shebang...

Since I can't find a link to email the author, I think you means CoronaRy, though currently in the post the word is missing an R.

You are right. I made the correction. Thank you.
I'm impressed by your attention to detail.

What about making your own icecream with real milk and cream? you'll be sure there is no toxic stuff in it like HFCS...

I only use real milk and cream for icecream and it tastes good. Mix frozen rasperries and good fat ( and your arteries will thank you.

By the way, mash a frozen banana and a spoon of good black chocolate and you'll have the healthiest icecream. And kids like it too.

Hi, my name is Kenny Williams and I have suffered from severe acne. In fact, I also had problems with hair loss and weight loss and I lost all self confidence at some point and all my friends too. Now, a few months later, after discovering the Health Reviews website, I feel much much better. After reading their success stories and recommendations, their Top Health Reviews really helped me. Do you realize how good can this be? NO more problems. Finally I can got back my smile. That is the reason I am so happy now!
