5 High Protein Ice Creams You Should Try


Ice cream is a sweetened frozen food typically eaten as a snack or dessert. It is usually made from dairy products, such as milk and cream, and often combined with fruits or other ingredients and flavours. Read the High Protein Ice Creams You Should Try as shared by Prevention.com

Forte Gelato
Gelato is so much better than ice cream. Forte Gelato is made with organic, fair-trade ingredients (like cage-free egg yolks for extra creaminess) and milk protein for an extra satiating boost. Protein: 15 grams per serving

Halo Top
Halo Top only has a little more protein than your typical ice cream (Häagen-Dazs has about 5 grams per serving), but we still think it deserves a spot on this list. Why? On top of that extra gram of protein, a whole pint of Halo Top adds up to only 240 calories and 16 grams of sugar. Compare that to the more than 1,000 calories and 76 grams of sugar you’d get in a Häagen-Dazs pint. We’d call that a pretty good swap. Protein: 6 grams per serving

If you choose IceNLean in the muscle-building version, you’re eating a whopping 20 grams of protein, thanks to grass-fed whey protein. That’s about as much as you’d get in a half cup of chicken breast. The only downside? You have to be a chocolate lover, since that’s the only flavor IceNLean has. Protein: 10 to 20 grams per serving

The people behind Thrive say it can be enjoyed as a nutritional supplement or even to enhance workout performance. That’s because this pint doesn’t just have extra protein, it also packs 24 different vitamins and minerals and 4 probiotic cultures. Protein: 9 grams per serving

Enlightened calls itself “the good-for-you ice cream.” And we’d have to agree. While no ice cream is better for you than, say, raw veggies, Enlightened certainly has a leg up nutritionally on the Ben and Jerry’s of the world—in addition to the protein boost, you’ll also get 20% of your daily fiber in a single serving, and only 5 grams of sugar. Protein: 7 grams per serving
