Arctic Zero Review


It is said, somethings are just too good to be true.

I'll be honest.  That was my first thought when I saw these cute little pints of ice cream labeled "Arctic Zero" on the shelf in my local grocery store.


150 calories?  I was thinking......sure.......per BITE!  Nope.  The whole dang PINT!

So I bought it.  {Mint Chocolate}
Instant. LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE.

Then, the best thing ever happened.

This:
 
arrived at my door.



Christmas.  In.  September.

Immediately, Peanut had something to say:

Here is how the conversation went-

Me: I am going to eat this whole PINT of ice cream!
Peanut: You are so weird.
Me: Well, it's healthy it has protein!
Peanut: Can I have some?
Me: no freaking way.
Peanut: Yup, you totally win "selfless mom of the year". *Resumes TV show*

That's my girl.

It didn't take me long [about 7.44 minutes] before I got going on this one.....


I am a pumpkin girl.
This was amazing.  By far my favorite of all of them.

So how do they do it?

The secret to its insanely low-calorie contents is monk fruit. Hmmm…never heard of it?
I hadn't either.
So I did what I always do.......Hello Google. Monk fruit is a natural sweetener from China and yes, I think I'll be buying stock it that, super soon.

I tried them all. [seriously, rough work] ;)

I got a little creative with a few . . . this was BLISS!



And this was a little piece of heaven:


I have used it on my Pumpkin Protein Cakes I make......incredible.



Then, just today I tried it [vanilla maple] in my smoothie.
best. idea. yet.

Sooooooooooooo you guessed it........

My only wish?
