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.

Im gonna try the frozen banana and strawberry one! Im gonna try adding non fat yogurt.
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!!!

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.
I am a HUGE fan of Yasso's Greek yogurt pops (yasso.com). 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.
Living in Texas, we've been Blue Bell fans for years. However, I rarely buy ice cream. When I do, it lasts for months because we just don't indulge very often. I received a Cuisinart ice cream maker for Christmas and want to try making sorbet or granita with it. So far I've only made French vanilla but I don't use whole milk and since we don't eat it that often, I don't worry about the extra fat. Thank you for the detailed information about the different types of frozen deserts.

Country Club brand has an almond flavor with almond chunks which is low fat, and has no sugar added--------- It is wonderful wonderful for my taste buds- YUM!
I forgot to add this to my last comment...you need to try Weight Watchers red velvet ice cream sandwiches. They are incredible!!! The only down side is that they are snack sized. Between them and Skinny Cow ice cream desserts I may never eat the high calorie high fat stuff again!!!
Skinny Cow ice cream desserts are the best!!!! I used to eat all the high calorie favs...Ben and Jerry's, Hagen Daz,etc) but since I started watching what I eat I had cut all those out. I missed ice cream so one day I decided to try Skinny Cow Snikerdoodle ice cream sandwiches, and I was hooked. This led to trying the Strawberry Shortcake flavor, the Mint, and the Cookies and Cream. I can eat two of those and be totally stuffed with ice cream goodness, and it still is half the calories, and less than half the fat of my once favorite brands. Plus they taste just ask good:) Don't even get me started on their ice cream truffle bars....i just started trying them, and I may love them even more than the ice cream sandwiches!!!!
