Have you ever heard of Arctic Zero? I hadn't - until I sampled their tasty frozen treats! Think protein shake in ice cream form: YUM. Especially for someone like me, who enjoys her daily ice cream. Rich premium ice creams are definitely part of a healthy diet ;) but probably as a more occasional treat - and, unless you're trying to gain weight, aren't necessarily meant to be enjoyed a pint at a time. Arctic Zero is!
A whole pint has 14g of whey protein, only 20g of sugar (that's including naturally occurring ones) and 150 calories - pretty much the nutritionals of one scoop of regular ice cream, except with a ton more high quality protein!
Arctic Zero has a ton of pint flavors and several bars, but my favorite pint flavor was:
I'm definitely a cookies and cream girl! I'm pretty sure that's always been my favorite ice cream flavor! :P Arctic Zero is less creamy than ordinary ice cream (it's fat free and cream = fat) but it's smooth, sweet, cool and definitely "hit the spot." Ice cream tooth? Satisfied.
My only 'meh' about this was that there weren't any cookie chunks - it was more cookies and cream flavoring throughout. Which I guess was necessary to keep the nutritional stats as they were...
Okay, my favorite bar flavor was:
That's the 85 calorie vanilla bar with chocolate coating! Yum. :) Here are the nutritionals:
The bar reminded me of the Breyers slow-churned bars - just with fewer ingredients, more protein, and all that jazz. :) Again, ice cream tooth? Satisfied.
But you know me - I like my ice cream, like my issues (haha, jk), complex:
Ice cream sundae time! That's cookies and cream Arctic Zero with a sprinkle of cinnamon, some peanut butter (some more joined the party mid-way through) and two of my beans 'n greens brownies. Healthy, delicious, and sooooo satisfying!
Now that I think about it, I could have just used their chocolate peanut butter flavor... :P
Or you could make a sundae out of a chocolaty, peanut buttery, melty Fudgy Peanut Butter Chip VitaTop and coffee ArcticZero (so good), toped with peanut flour sauce.
I think it's pretty good looking. And it tastes even better. ;)

What's your favorite flavor of ice cream?
Have you ever tried Arctic Zero? Favorite flavor?
Has it snowed yet, where you live? No snow here - I have to make my own shivers with ice cream. *Sigh.*
