Ice cream is simply one of the best food inventions ever. It’s so cold, so creamy, so satisfying! Unfortunately, most ice creams are loaded with tons of sugar and fat. Whether you’re going on a calorie cutting or keto diet, you may believe you will never be able to experience the wonders of ice cream ever again.

Don’t lose hope! There’s a few options out there if you want to get your ice cream fix in. Let’s take a look at three low carb ice creams that you can probably buy from your local grocery store.

Halo Top Ice Cream

Halo Top Low Carb Ice Cream

Based out of Los Angles, California, Halo Top has become super popular over the past few years. It’s for good reason too: they offer many different flavors of ice creams that are all far healthier than regular options.

That number you see on the carton? It isn’t calories per serving. It’s calories per pint! Halo Top is also perfect for low carb diets, with less than 10g of carbs per serving.

Like Halo Top, Low Cow Lite Ice Cream is available in tons of different flavors – and the whole lineup is a great option for keto dieters. This ice cream manages to maintain amazing flavor while still removing a lot of the junk that will bring your diet to its knees.

Breyers Carb Smart

Breyers is one of America’s leading brands of ice cream. They didn’t want to miss out on the fun of low carb options, so they introduced the ‘Carb Smart’ line. This ice cream is specifically made for people on low carb diets (it even says on the packaging!).

While there isn’t as much variety here and it’s not as healthy overall, Breyers Carb Smart Ice cream is far cheaper than Halo Top or Low Cow. You can pick up almost half a gallon of this deliciousness for about the same price as a quart of the previous two options.

Nutrition information (varies slightly between flavors)

  • Calories: 120
  • Fat: 6g
  • Carbohydrates: 5g
  • Protein: 2g

Find Your Own

There’s bound to be local or specialty brands of low carb ice creams that aren’t listed here. Read the nutrition labels of some ice cream cartons next time you are craving a cold, sweet treat. You might come across an option that works perfect for you! Remember to subtract the Dietary Fiber and Sugar Alcohol from the Total Carbohydrate count, as these do not affect your diet (fiber and alcohol don’t change blood sugar levels).

It’s important to restrain yourself from going overboard with ice cream.

Even these diet-conscious options are bad if you eat too much at a time. Reserve ice cream as a treat to be enjoyed in small quantities at a time.

If you are on a keto diet, that doesn’t mean you have to rob yourself the joys of ice cream! Pick from one of the three above, or find your own, and enjoy with no guilt!
