15 Diet-Friendly Ice Cream Choices

Get the Scoop on Picking a Healthier Ice Cream


  • I always keep overripe bananas and freeze them to make ice cream at home quick! I love So Delicious, but to save money and time I keep the frozen bananas and then add strawberries or chocolate almond milk (just a splash) and maybe some vegan chocolate protein powder. No it's not as fatty as ice cream, but it's definitely delicious and MUCH better for your body! - 11/11/2015 1:26:30 PM
  • Article states, "If you want total control over what goes into your ice cream, consider buying your own ice cream maker."

    The only way I have "total control" over ice cream is by not having it in my house. ;) - 9/28/2015 8:15:31 AM
    Frozen bananas taste like frozen bananas, not satisfying at all. We keep Skinny Cow bars at home at all times! It's our daily 7:00 PM treat, keeps us sticking to our diet plan. Healthy food is really not that tasty, why do you think people feel the need to indulge ourselves often, truth be told, having some daily ice cream helps a lot. - 9/3/2015 7:37:33 AM
  • You don't need to get frozen yogurt with live bacterial cultures, because freezing the yogurt will kill the bacteria. Don't bother. If you really need probiotics in your diet and you're short of funds, skip the frozen yogurt and go for the kind in the refrigerator case. - 5/25/2015 12:57:16 PM
  • My only thought was whether or not the Kiwis and the US were converted into the SAME gallon. The US gallon is NOT the same as the one the "rest" of the world uses (mainly Commonwealth countries) we use (or used to use) the Imperial gallon. - 9/1/2014 9:42:31 PM
  • Stepfanie's recipe for the frozen banana dessert is as good or better than ice cream - and much healthier!!! (and this is coming from a real ice cream lover who ran an ice cream business where we made our own wonderful ice creams) - 8/13/2014 10:46:29 PM
  • I love Artic Zero, So Delicious and Rice Dream!!!!! - 8/13/2014 12:10:52 PM
  • So glad to know Italian ices are low in fat! I live near a Rita's Italian Ice store and when its hot.........need I day more :) - 6/17/2014 9:32:30 AM
  • I'm always cautious of low-fat or light things because they tend to put weird unnatural things in to make up for the texture/flavor change. I think I'd rather just eat regular ice cream in smaller quantities. As for toppings, I consider myself lucky that my favorite is cinnamon. - 6/7/2014 11:41:05 AM
    Im gonna try the frozen banana and strawberry one! Im gonna try adding non fat yogurt. - 4/30/2014 8:49:58 PM
  • I didn't know I could have so many choices. I am interested in trying the frozen yogurt and slow turned. Sounds perfect for me. I am so excited! - 2/10/2014 12:15:51 PM
  • The healthiest diet-friendly "ice cream" I have had is not really ice cream, but tastes just as sinful! Just throw frozen bananas and frozen fresh strawberries into a blender (I use a high power vitamix) and blend! It is so good and makes you feel like you are cheating without the guilt!!! - 10/17/2013 4:40:24 PM
    Ice Cream topped with Hersey syrup is my weakness so I don't buy ice cream. However, maybe once a month I do treat myself to a small Dairy Queen Hot Fudge Sundae. I know. Bad me. - 7/28/2013 10:01:49 PM
  • I am a HUGE fan of Yasso's Greek yogurt pops ( They are low-calorie (80 cals), non-fat (except the new coconut ones which are low-fat), have no artificial sweeteners (about 12g of sugar per pop), are high in protein (6g per pop - 7 for the vanilla ones! - THE SAME AS AN EGG), and contain only natural ingredients. The strawberry ones are my favorite, but you can get them in six different flavors. - 7/28/2013 8:13:05 PM
  • I like to take frozen bananas, chop them up and blend them with a little cocoa, a little stevia, maybe some almond milk. Very healthy and the texture is silky like ice cream. - 7/28/2013 4:48:06 PM
