Iâ€™m not a huge dessert person. Never have been. As an adult, Iâ€™d also prefer wine calories over sweet calories.
(My mother, who isÂ a huge ice cream person, just died a little inside.)
But I am also human, so I do crave ice cream sometimes and generally have at least some sort of frozen treat in my freezer for those â€œemergencies.â€ Since moderation is not really my strong suit, I prefer to keep single-serve treats on hand so I donâ€™t go nuts with them.Â
When I do have ice cream at home, I try to stick to smaller indulgences.Â
So at just 135 calories, Brio definitely fits the bill. Iâ€™ve been pitched weird protein ice creams before and plenty of frankenfoods, but this ice cream has a relatively short ingredient list (with mostly organic ingredients)Â andÂ is rich in probiotics. I never knew I wanted probiotics in my ice cream, but hey, if I can get some extra health benefits from an â€œindulgence,â€ why not? Itâ€™s also relatively low in sugar â€” 12g per serving, not bad for something like ice cream.
But most importantly, it doesnâ€™t taste like itâ€™s healthy.Â It doesnâ€™t taste grainy, or overly sweet from gross chemicals.
Itâ€™s a perfect little dessert for when you have that sweets craving immediately after eating, or hey, Iâ€™d even have it after the gym, before dinner if I were working out at night. Or before bed. OK fine, thereâ€™s no bad time for ice cream, mom.Â
What about you? Team savory or sweet?Â
