Summer is a time for enjoying yourself – lounging in the sunshine, taking vacations, sipping margaritas and eating ice cream. But the one thing that puts a damper on splurging in the summer is, you guessed it, calories! How’s a BELLA supposed to enjoy her cake and eat it too, while still looking bomb in a bikini? Believe it or not, there’s snacks on the market that cater to those with a sweet tooth who are still trying to be healthy. ENLIGHTENED Ice Cream is one such brand, selling not only delicious ice cream pints and bars, but also roasted broad bean crisps and crispy marshmallow treats.
We had an ice cream happy hour at our BELLA headquarters in New York City to try out some of ENLIGHTENED’s best ice cream flavors, and boy were we satisfied! Their ice creams load you up on a bunch of good stuff, like protein, fiber and flavor, while skimping on the bad stuff, namely calories, fat and sugar. Each serving is only 60-100 calories, making it a great way to not only cool off, but to indulge without the guilt! And surprisingly, they don’t even use any artificial sweeteners, colors or flavors to make it tasty. With flavors like black cherry chocolate chip, frozen hot cocoa, sea salt caramel, and caramel oatmeal cookie crunch, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Plus, our team at BELLA came to the conclusion that ENLIGHTENED has better texture and flavor than rival Halo Top, also known for their protein laden ice creams. That’s right — you might just have a new go-to ice cream to pick up at the grocery store now.
Whether you need a healthy snack, are an ice cream fanatic, or just want to try something new, we recommend trying some ENLIGHTENED this summer. Both your tastebuds and your body will thank you! Bet you can’t say that about any other ice cream. 😉
