Healthy Ice Cream Arctic Zero Giveaway

So, I am a sweets person. I don't really think that's a big secret...I am constantly eating sweet things...even my salads are sweet! I love to throw fruit on them and make sweet vinaigrettes, and I'm a HUGE fan of the healthy mug cake. By a huge fan I mean like a couple a week :)

Recently, Arctic Zero contacted me and asked if I wanted to try out their healthy "ice cream"  treats. Um...is that a real question?! They sent me a few vouchers and I picked up the product at Wal-Mart! I thought that I would have to go to a Whole Foods or Sprouts, but after realizing they have a store locator on their website, I found that their products are sold at many more places, which is a huge plus. 

Arctic Zero sells ice cream pints and ice cream bars. They have a short list of readable ingredients, which is so nice for us health conscious folk. Some other awesome facts about Arctic Zero:

Gluten and fat free
Made with whey protein
Free from artificial sweeteners or flavors
Sweetened with monk fruit and organic cane sugar
Non GMO
150 calories per pint

I picked up a few flavors, including the Vanilla Maple, Chocolate PB, and Mint Chocolate (forgot to take a picture)


I dove right into both and was pleasantly surprised at the yummy taste! I would say I'm more of a cake person than an ice cream person, but these pints are just great. The flavors are super bold and at 150 calories in ONE PINT it's kind of hard to go wrong :) I enjoyed eating them right out of the pint, but actually discovered that a couple of spoonfuls in my protein smoothie took it from smoothie to almost milkshake quality, so that's how I've been enjoying them this week! 

I am a huge advocate of not calorie counting (for myself, at least). I think it's awesome that people have the control to count their food, but I've been there, done that, and felt that it wasn't healthy for me. I became too obsessed and was really hard on myself when I went over fats, sugars, etc. To me, a healthy balance of whole, unprocessed foods with small indulgences is what's worked best and kept me happiest. So, the Arctic Zero products are perfect, because they taste like an indulgence but are made from good ingredients and will fit into any diet. Also, 150 calories for an entire pint...why WOULDN'T you eat the whole thing at once?

Luckily for you, the awesome people over at Arctic Zero want to give two readers 2 free vouchers to try out the product. Find out how to enter below, and good luck!!

  8. Ice cream and pumpkin pie are the best desserts. I want to say cookie dough, too, but that's more of a random indulgence than a dessert haha. Love Arctic Zero, thanks for the giveaway...hoping to win!
