Dig into A Healthier Ice Cream

Dig Into a Healthier Ice Cream

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I bet reading the title of this post, made you either think, “Yeah right,” or “Let me get my spoon.” Regardless, of which camp you fall into, you can dig into a healthier ice cream with Halo Top.

So now, you’re probably wondering what is this magical Halo Top you speak of? I’ll tell you. Halo Top is a lower calorie, lower carb, lower sugar ice cream loaded with lots of protein. Each pint contains 24g of protein and between 240-360 calories. Not in one serving, I’m taking the entire pint. Halo Top also use all-natural, kosher and gluten-free ingredients to make each of their seventeen flavors.

As an ice cream lover, I couldn’t wait to redeem the very generous coupon Halo Top sent me.  You should have seen the look the cashier gave me when I presented her with a coupon for four free pints of ice cream. It was priceless.

With so many flavors to choose from, I wasn’t sure which to pick. Should I go with the classic Chocolate or Vanilla, or go out of my comfort zone with Black Cherry and Pistachio? I opted for my all-time favorite Peanut Butter Cup, along with Mint Chip, S’mores, and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. I had a few hits and few misses with my picks.

My two favorite picks were Mint Chip (240 calories per pint) and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (360 calories per pint).

Halo Top Mint Chip & Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

I’ve tried reduced calorie Mint Chip ice creams before and most don’t live up to the hype. They either taste very fake or have no flavor at all. This is not the case with Halo Top Mint Chip. It tastes just as good as any full fat, corn syrup filled ice cream. I would absolutely buy this ice cream again whenever I have a mint chip craving.

When I opened Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough I was fully expecting the typical vanilla ice cream with cookie dough pieces. Halo Top’s version of the classic treat is a revelation. Usually, I pick through the vanilla ice cream to get the cookie dough, but not with this ice cream. I don’t know how they did it, but this entire Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough pint tastes like actual cookie dough. It is amazing. I highly recommend trying it for yourself if you love the flavor of raw cookie dough.

Now on to my two misses,  S’mores (320 calories per pint) and Peanut Butter Cup (320 calories per pint).

Halo Top Peanut Butter Cup & S'mores

Before I talk about why they are misses for me, I will say ice cream flavor picks are subjective. While I might not have loved these, it doesn’t mean you won’t.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate is my absolute favorite ice cream flavor. This means I am super picky and judge it to a higher standard. While I like the peanut butter flavor in the Halo Top Peanut Butter Cup, I don’t enjoy the chocolate. It wasn’t chocolatey enough and had a pretty watered down flavor. I prefer my chocolate and peanut butter complement each other better.

The S’mores flavor was probably my least favorite of my four picks. I was hoping it would taste like a mix of graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate. Instead, it tastes like butterscotch and lacks any flavor profile variation. S’mores is a hard flavor to pull off and I have yet to find a brand that does it to perfection.

2 out of 4, isn’t so bad. Besides, I still have 13 other flavors to try out in the future.

  1. I’ve seen Halo Top at my local grocery store for quite a while now, but have yet to try it out. I am always skeptical of a lower calorie/fat type of food. But – sounds like you really like them (minus the S’Mores flavor) so perhaps I’ll add one to my cart next time!

  2. I’ve never even heard of this brand. The ice cream doesn’t look very fluffy. It’s good to know that the chocolate chip cookie dough is a winner, though!

  3. This sounds so cool! I’ve never actually heard of this brand but the flavours sound right up my street – especially the peanut butter cup

  4. I just want to say i feel like for me the entire pint is one serving haha

  5. My friend mentioned these to me the other day. I will have to read the ingredients. Honestly with my new immersion blender I just make my own with fresh frozen fruit, super easy and is thickness of ice-cream

  6. I love icecream. What I am not fond of is the calories! LOL! Need to give this brand a try. Will look for it at our local grocery store.

  7. Such a shame that the peanut butter one did not taste better as I live for that flavour. Love the sound of the cookie dough one though xx

  8. I’ve only heard good things about these but I cannot find them anywhere! Now you’re really lighting my fire to find them!

  9. I have coupons for Halo Top in my inbox that I have yet to use. I have got to get to the store and get some! I love ice cream!

    This sounds like a delicious ice cream. And healthier is a bonus!

  11. planningthemagic says:

    Wow, the entire container is so low in calories. This is the perfect solution for ice cream lovers.

  12. I will start looking for this brand now, we love ice cream. We will have to give it a try and my 5 little critics will let me know what they think.

  13. I have never tried this brand before, but I’ve heard it is really good! I’m a big fan of peanut butter, so I’d probably love to try that first.

  14. I love that there is a healthy ice cream! Sign me right up for a whole case of this.

  15. Krystle Cook says:

    I have never heard of this company before but it looks awesome. We have been looking for healthier alternatives.

  16. I am going out now to buy that cookie dough ice cream! My husband thinks I’m crazy when I eat raw cookie dough and now it can be my little secret!

  17. If it tastes as good and is healthier I am in! Ice Cream is always a big hit in our house and we love trying new brands and flavors!

  18. These look amazing! I would love to try some of these out! Thanks so much for sharing!

  19. I bet that mint chip ice cream is delicious. I would also feel less guilty about eating it too. I am loving this ice cream!

  20. If I see healthy and ice cream in the same sentence, it sounds good to me! I’ll try them soon.

  21. Yum! Now I won’t feel so guilty eating an entire pint in one sitting. Besides if I left any my boys and husband would eat it all. 🙂

  22. We love eating ice cream on the sofa during movie nights but there’s always this guilty feeling after we eat the entire tub haha so anything healthier is good for us!

  23. Since I am fully in the camp of eating almost an entire pint at one sitting – the calorie count on this ice cream sounds wonderful! I haven’t heard of the brand before, but am definitely going to seek it out during my next grocery trip!

  24. I’ve heard so many good things about halo top, I definitely want to dig into one of these flavors!

    My supermarket has had this on sale for a few weeks now. I will have to give it a try, I wasn’t sure about it until now!

  26. I mean with s’mores in the flavor lineup, how can you go wrong? I just found a new ice cream to try!

  27. I keep hearing everybody talk about Halo Top! I keep looking for it at my local grocer but haven’t gotten a chance to try it yet.

  28. I’ve never seen or heard of this brand. Possibly may be because I’m not paying attention lol. I’ll be hunting down my local Walmart to see if they offer it. My son loves ice cream.

  29. Oooh hard to choose ONE ice-cream flavor. I am partial to a couple. I like vanilla if I’ve having icecream with apple pie etc, on it’s own though I like mint choc chip or cherry choc chip.

    I’ve been trying to eat healthier this year. My biggest stumbling block is late night binging. I get a sweet craving and end up splurging. This sounds like a good alternative!

  31. As a military wife who could barely handle her busy schedule I am truly glad I came across your post. I love checking out new things. That Halo Top sounds really flavorful and yummy! I would loveto try them out!

  32. Jennifer Marx (JenuineMom) says:

  33. I’ve seen this at the grocery store but I’ve never tried it. I will have to see if I can find it and try it out soon.

  34. What?!?! Healthier ice cream?!?! Now this is something I need to try! Definitely going on my shopping list!

  35. This looks worth trying. My daughter is really into healthier icecream. Going to show her this.

  36. I SO need a healthier ice cream. It is one of my naughtier habits, especially chocolate. Going to have to try to find it where I love.

  37. Ooooh! This is my kind of ice cream! (And my hubby’s!) We are a ice cream junkie family so this is so perfect for us! I will have to try this and let you know how we like it! Thanks!

    I was so excited when we spotted Halos Ice Cream at our local supermarket. We can’t stop eating it, and I love that my son loves to eat it especially since he’s so active. This has good protein for him 🙂
