A moment on the lips, forever on the hips.

Nothing tastes as good as healthy feels.

Blah blah. I’m sure you’re tired of hearing these idioms during the course of your diet.

Today happens to be National Ice Cream Day, and for me, that’s good enough reason to grab a spoon, sit down with my favorite pint and indulge in a little cheat meal.

You don’t have to go all double hot-fudge, or stack your scoops with towering helpings of Reese’s Cups to enjoy a refreshing snack in the summer heat. Here are a few options under 5g of total fat that won’t bore your palate.


Bryer’s Salted Caramel Swirl

With only 90 calories per serving and 4g total fat, you’ll fall even more in love once you learn the briny treat has no added sugar.


Edy’s Slow Churned Raspberry Chip Royale

Raspberry and chocolate form the perfect tag-team in this dairy decadence. With each serving only containing 4g of total fat, you’ll be strongly tempted to scoop out more.


Ben & Jerry’s FroYo Half Baked

What a classic. Chocolate and vanilla frozen yogurt packed with brownie bites and clumps of chocolate chip cookie dough, makes this an instant favorite of ice cream aficionados. Each serving yields only 3g of fat!


Haagen-Dazs Vanilla Frozen Yogurt

Vanilla is a timeless classic. It’s the perfect treat as we unwind into the evening hours or after dinner with a cup of joe. The Haagen-Dazs brand exudes eminence and this option has only 2.5g of total fat.


Skinny Cow Chocolate Fudge Brownie

The chocolate lover in all of us can be satisfied with its rich flavor. This is the ultimate cure for a sweet tooth and with only 2g total fat, you won’t feel guilty having another scoop tomorrow!
