Healthy Packaged Frozen Treats For Summer
14 June 22, 2012
After flaming Snapple for their sorbet bars, I decided to be more positive and share some of the better healthy frozen treats you can find in your freezer section.
My favorite has to be the Jolly Llama Sorbet Squeezups. My kids went nuts over these and they are made with whole fruit - not concentrates or juices. There is added sugar but unlike other popsicles that I have reviewed (see: Don't Be Fooled By This Popsicle Marketing Trick), the FIRST ingredient is fruit.
They come in blueberry, raspberry, peach, mango, strawberry, acai berry, and banana coconut sorbet flavors.
They taste AMAZING and are a great fix for when you want to eat a tub of Ben and Jerry's because the portion size is figured out for you. Here are the nutrition facts for one Raspberry Sorbet Squeezup:
70 calories, 0 g fat, 19 g carbohydrates, 0 g protein, 3 g fiber, 0 mg sodium, 2 PointsPlus
A package of 4 retails for $4.99 and can be found here: Jolly Llama Where To Buy
If you can’t find Jolly LLama, you will be able to find the Haagen Dazs sorbet cups in your freezer section. I reviewed them here A Healthy Snack Friend In The Ice Cream Aisle and they cost about $1.25 each.
They don’t have as much fruit as Jolly Llama but they are still a good choice.
If you live near a Whole Foods, these are a great option. They cost about $2.20 for a box and the first ingredient is FRUIT. For the strawberry frozen fruit bars they have:
110 calories, 0 g fat, 25 g carbohydrates, 25 g sugar, 0 g protein, 1 g fiber, 1 mg sodium, 3 PointsPlus
These delicious bars come in an assortment of flavors: Caribbean, Lime, Mango, Strawberry and Coconut.
These aren’t made with fruit but I like these. So Delicious Dairy Free came up with a mini frozen dessert using coconut milk. Check out the nutritional facts:
100 calories, 3.5 g fat, 15 g carbohydrates, 1 g protein, 2 g fiber, 50 mg sodium, 2 PointsPlus
It has 7 grams of sugar per serving and uses agave syrup as the added sugar ingredient. So you are getting about half the sugar and fat as compared to regular ice cream.
The beauty of these sandwiches is that they are just trying to be what they are - coconut milk frozen treats!
Please share your favorite healthy frozen treats.
