Arctic Zero Vanilla Maple Frozen Desert

The website description of Arctic Zero reads, "Now you can have an ice cream-like treat that has less than 150 Calories per pint. It's like a delicious-tasting frozen protein shake you can spoon." Ellen sang it's praises in the review of Arctic Zero Chocolate Peanut Butter, so I was excited when I finally got a chance to try some flavors for myself. I was sent a few samples of the Arctic Zero Vanilla Maple Frozen Desert to try.

Serving Size: 1/2 cup (84 grams)
Calories: 37
Total Fat: 0%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 15 mg, 1%
Carbohydrates: 7 grams
Fiber: 2 grams, 8%
Sugars: 7 grams
Protein: 4 grams

The nutrition facts are very impressive. Each 1/2 cup serving provides only 37 calories, no fat, 2 grams of fiber (8% of the daily value), 7 grams of sugars and 4 grams of protein. The ingredients are all natural and include purified water, whey protein concentrate, organic cane sugar, chicory root, guar gum, xantham gum, natural flavors, monk fruit concentrate.

As for the taste, I couldn't decide if I liked it or not. When the Arctic Zero Vanilla Maple Frozen Desert has melted a little, then it seems to taste better - sweet with a strong vanilla flavor. It's also amazing in smoothies and for making protein shakes (especially with no-sugar added protein powder such as Spiru-tein High Protein Energy Meal Simply Natural Original Vanilla Protein Powder (Review)). But, when it's coming straight from the freezer a la ice cream, it seems lacking. There is a slightly off taste - like when you make ice cream from milk powder.

Arctic Zero Chocolate Peanut ButterOh my gosh ... has anyone tried Arctic Zero? I came across it randomly online, and when I saw than an entire pint of the frozen ice cream-like goodness had just 128 calories, I had to try it. Luckily for me, I'm in California right now where certain stores happen to carry this product. What is Arctic Zero, you ask? It's a "rich and creamy ice cream replacement designed for those who love dessert but avoid high calorie and high fat foods."

I picked up a pint of each Chocolate, Vanilla, and Chocolate Peanut Butter flavors for just $3.69 each (less than a pint of some premium ice creams) and set out to be amazed. I decided I was in a Peanut Butter kind of mood, so I opened that one. I dug in, and all I can say is - WOW ! Although it doesn't taste exactly like full-fat ice cream, this stuff is pretty darn good. Talk about rich and creamy, perfect for a hot summer day.
