You know those people who can sit down with a pint of ice cream and not polish off the whole thing? Yeah, we’re not one of them. In fact, we’re pretty sure that those people don’t actually exist. Which is one of the (many) reasons why we are totally enamored with Arctic Zero. You can eat a whole freakin’ PINT of this frozen dessert for just 150 calories — and it has 12 grams of whey protein, 8 grams of fiber and only 5 grams of sugar per serving. Again, a serving is a pint. A pint! And with nutritionals like that, it’s practically a workout-recovery snack.
In fact, Arctic Zero has pioneered a new frozen dessert category, providing the sweet and smooth sensation of ice cream without the use of cream or bad fats. It’s brilliant. Made with GMO-free ingredients and no artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners, each pint is gluten-free and suitable for lactose intolerants. Plus, you have seven tasty flavors to choose from. There’s Chocolate, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Cookies and Cream, Vanilla Maple, Mint Chocolate, Strawberry and Coffee. Take it from us, all are delicious.
Not into eating straight from the pint? What is wrong with you?! Just kidding; there are plenty of ways to enjoy low-calorie Arctic Zero. From smoothies to snow pies, it’s a versatile ingredient that you can feel good about using in your favorite recipes. And while — obviously — tasty on its own, you can also add fruit, nuts and other toppings for a yummier and healthier snack!
We particularly like topping the Vanilla Maple with some sauteed apples and a few toasted pecans. It may not be fall just yet, but it’s a dessert that satisfies year-round. Oh, and definitely try a little Chocolate Peanut Butter and sliced banana together. Elvis was a foodie genius — and with Arctic Zero it’s just perfection. Want more ideas? Try this recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Milkshake or this Neapolitan Banana Split for a better-for-you dessert option. Want something that doesn’t come from a pint? Check your pulse (we kid again!), then check out Arctic Zero’s delicious chocolate-covered bars that are available in Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry and Orange Cream. With just 85 calories per bar, these are a must-stock-in-your-fridge item.
Arctic Zero is sold nationwide for $4 to $5 per pint and $4 to $5 per box of two bars at major retailers, including Whole Foods Market, Walmart, Target, Kroger, Publix and Sprouts, and are also found online at Amazon.com. So what are you waiting for? Pick some up today, and try one of these amazing Arctic Zero recipes!
