Arctic Zero. A low calorie Dessert.


arctic

I recently got the opportunity to try Arctic Zero. A low calorie dessert. They have a  few different products ranging from pints of dessert to frozen dessert bars. Arctic Zero is naturally sweetened with a proprietary blend of monk fruit concentrate and organic cane sugar.

As I have recently started a low carb diet, I have been DYING for something sweet. I was so shocked to find out a serving of this desert is only 4 carbs. 4 of them! Totally doable! And you can eat the entire pint and only be out 150 calories with 0 grams of fat.

Okay this sounds to good to be true right? I know. That is what I thought. I anxiously awaited for my samples to arrive.

This is what I received.

  •  1 pint of chocolate
  • 1 pint of maple vanilla
  • 1 pint of cookies and cream
  • 1 pint of strawberry
  • 1 pint of mint chocolate
  • 1 pint of chocolate peanut butter
  • 1 pint of coffee
  • 1 box of strawberry and orange chocolate dipped bars
  • 1 box of vanilla and chocolate dipped in chocolate bars

Holy desert! Here are my honest opinions of each flavor.

Chocolate. 9.5/10.Chocolate-350x375

This is a winner. The flavor was right on. I made my husband a chocolate milkshake with this flavor and he was hooked. If you are a chocolate fan this is for you. A tip. Leave Arctic Zero on your counter for about 10 minutes before you start to eat it. It softens up and it gets the best texture. You can eat it straight out of the freezer but it might hurt your teeth! It kind of reminds me of a sorbet. It needs to soften.

Maple Vanilla. 9/10.Vanilla-350x375

I am a true fan of vanilla. I wasn’t sure how the maple part of this desert would play out but I was certainly delighted. Sweet but not overly sweet, and perfect with a handful of chopped macadamia nuts had my mouth singing.

Coffee. 9/10.Coffee-350x375

Another winner! Creamy and great coffee flavor. This is a great palate cleanser.

Strawberry- 8.5/10.Strawberry-350x375

My husband devoured this flavor. He said it was his favorite of the bunch. A nice strawberry flavor that tasted real and not artificial.

Mint Chocolate- 8.5/10.MintChocolate-350x375

I love mint chocolate! It’s my favorite. I could eat this dessert every single day. The mint flavor isn’t overpowering, and the chocolate is nice and light. Will keep this in the freezer for sure.

Cookies and Cream- 7.5/10.CookiesCream-350x375

Good texture, good flavor. This would make a great milkshake as well.

Peanut butter chocolate- 7/10. ChocolatePeanutButter-350x375

This was my least favorite. I was expecting more peanut butter!

The bars. 8/10.bars1 bars2

The fruit flavors are my favorite. Orange arctic zero covered in dark chocolate? Total home run. The other bars were good as well.

You can purchase Arctic Zero at your local grocery store. If they do not carry it, you can always ask the store manager to start!

At 150 calories a pint, 0 fat, low carbs, I would say this product is totally worth your time. It even has PROTEIN in it. It’s a no brainer. A great treat for those trying to watch their weight or live a healthier lifestyle.

Frozen Yogurt Fruit Drops.

This is totally not a new concept at all! I just have a combination of yogurt + fruit that is perfect, and I think it would make a really great healthy Valentine’s Day dessert.

All you need is a selection of fruit. I used strawberries, blueberries, and bananas.

Lay out a baking sheet topped with wax paper. Dip fruit into yogurt. Lay on top of paper. Continue. Put into freezer. Takes about 30-45 minutes to set.

The reason it would be perfect for valentines day, is that there are baby dark chocolate chips in the yogurt that end up on the fruit! So it’s like a sweet, protein, frozen, chocolately treat of goodness.

If you wanted to be even fancier, you could sprinkle crushed nuts or coconut on top.

Valentine’s day can still be healthy!! I am so doing this! I will probably use whole strawberries, and raspberries!

Calories vary, but I would say for 1 serving of fruit and yogurt- 150 calories!
