Low Carb Ice Cream Review

Low Carb Ice Cream Review

Over a period of three days, Lara and Faith actually bought and tasted all the ice cream reviewed in this post. (Yes, that’s a lot of ice cream, lol!) We tried a variety of different brands and flavors so we could share with you our thoughts about the best low carb ice cream on the market. We purchased these ice creams at a variety of places, but the majority of them were at Publix (only a few from WholeFoods).

Low Carb Ice Cream Review

Our Best Tip for Eating Low Carb Ice Cream: We noticed that for every single one of these low carb ice cream flavors, they tasted better when thawed a little (about 10 minutes at room temperature). Be careful not to over-thaw though, because when some of them melt they get a weird foamy/fluffy texture.

We rated each flavor based on the following factors, with 10/10 being the best and 1/10 being the worst:

  1. Icy: 10/10 if it’s not icy at all
  2. Creamy: 10/10 if it’s super creamy
  3. Mouthfeel: Did it melt like ice cream in our mouths or feel slimy, foamy, gritty, etc.?
  4. Did we like the flavor overall?
  5. Was the sweetness level right? 
  6. Did the flavor taste like it’s name and description?
  7. Would we buy it again?
  8. Macros
  9. Ingredient Quality

Grab a spoon, we have a lot of low carb ice cream to dig into!

Low Carb Ice Cream Review

Enlightened Cold Brew Coffee

  1. Icy: 10/10
  2. Creamy: 5/10

  9. Ingredient Quality: Erythritol as sugar alcohol + monk fruit

We were very surprised because we both love cold brew, and because Lara has bought this ice cream in the past and loved it. We aren’t sure if we just got an off batch or if the recipe was reformulated, but we tasted campfire and no coffee. Unfortunately, we ended up throwing this away.

Low Carb Ice Cream Review

Arctic Zero Cherry Chocolate Chunk

  1. Icy: 10/10
  2. Creamy: 0/10 
  3. Mouthfeel: 3/10 (It had a fluffy mouthfeel, and then a little slimy, and then it sort-of dissolved like a foam on the tongue)

  5. Was the sweetness level right? 10/10
  6. Did the flavor taste like it’s name and description? 10/10

  8. Macros: Per 1/2 cup, 70kcals, 1 fat, 14g carbs, 4g fiber,  6g protein
  9. Ingredient Quality: Organic cane sugar + monk fruit concentrate. No sugar alcohols so it was higher in carbohydrates than most low carb ice creams.
  10. Our Thoughts: We’re going to be completely honest; both of us expected to hate this ice cream (we’ve had this brand in the past and it was more ice than cream). We were both very pleasantly surprised at how delicious it was! For us, the big chunks of chocolate and cherries are what made this ice cream. The texture was a little weird (fluffy more than creamy), but the cherry flavor was delicious.

  9. Ingredient Quality: Erythritol for sugar alcohol + monk fruit
  10. Our Thoughts: This ice cream was good overall; we enjoyed the cookie dough bits more than the brownie bits (the brownie bites tasted like chocolate protein bar). We actually both searched out the cookie dough bits, lol. The ice cream itself tasted similar to chocolate pudding, and had a somewhat pudding-like consistency when melted.

Chilly Cow Vanilla Graham Swirl Bar

  9. Ingredient Quality: Erythritol as sugar alcohol + monk fruit
  10. Our Thoughts: We thought that this ice cream tasted just like regular Cookies and Cream! It was one of our absolute favorite flavors.

  10. Our Thoughts: This ice cream tasted like regular soft-serve chocolate ice cream.

  3. Mouthfeel: 10/10

  2. Creamy: 5/10 
  3. Mouthfeel: 4/10 (It was slimy and foamy)

  8. Macros: Per half cup, 40kcals, 0g fat, 9g carbs, 4g fiber, 1g protein
  9. Ingredient Quality: No sugar alcohol used, uses cane sugar + monk fruit concentrate. Does not state how many grams of monk fruit on label.
  10. Our Thoughts: Upon opening this ice cream, the first thing we noticed was the shocking yellow color. The second was the artificial aroma. The flavor was very fake, and reminded us of a sugary cereal we had as kids, but couldn’t remember which cereal. It didn’t taste at all like cake batter. On the bright side, we were happy to see that the bright yellow color came from turmeric (instead of food dye).

So Delicious Dairy Free Peanut Butter Swirl Mousse

  1. Icy: 10/10
  2. Creamy: 10/10
  3. Mouthfeel: 10/10 (Like the name says, it’s mousse, so it was lighter in texture than a lot of other ice creams. It was light and fluffy, but had the perfect creaminess.)
  4. Did we like the flavor overall? 10/10 
  5. Was the sweetness level right? 10/10
  6. Did the flavor taste like it’s name and description? 10/10
  7. Would we buy it again? Both of us said HELL YES.

  9. Ingredient Quality: Erythritol for sugar alcohol + monk fruit
  10. Our Thoughts: Both of us were crazy about this ice cream. The only thing we would change is that we wished it had more peanut butter swirls!

low carb ice cream review

Halo Top Cookies and Cream

  1. Icy: 8/10
  2. Creamy: 5/10 (It’s somewhat foamy and dissolves on the tongue instead of really melting.) 
  3. Mouthfeel: 3/10 (Another thing we noticed about this ice cream was that it was either too hard or too melted; it lacked that creamy in-between phase.)
  4. Did we like the flavor overall? 2/10 (The ice cream was too sweet and the “cookies” part was too bitter.)
  5. Was the sweetness level right? 3/10
  6. Did the flavor taste like it’s name and description? 2/10
  7. Would we buy it again? Neither of us would buy this ice cream again.

  2. Creamy: 9/10 
  3. Mouthfeel: 9/10
  4. Did we like the flavor overall? 4/10
  5. Was the sweetness level right? 9/10
  6. Did the flavor taste like it’s name and description? 0/10 (It tasted like sweet custard, not at all like pistachio. After the second spoonful we looked at the ingredients and immediately noted why – there’s no pistachio in it!)
  7. Would we buy it again? Nooooo, sorry.
  8. Macros: per 1/2 cup, 70kcals, 2g fat, 14g carbs, 3g fiber, 5g sugar alcohols, 5g protein.
  9. Ingredient Quality: Erythritol for sugar alcohol + stevia
  10. Our Thoughts: If they called it “Sweet Custard” we may buy this, but the name was totally misleading. Plus the ice cream is green, which continues the deception (why though?). Green color doesn’t = pistachio flavor, unfortunately.

  9. Ingredient Quality: Erythritol for sugar alcohol + monk fruit
  10. Our Thoughts: It had a slightly floral/perfumy flavor, which we realized was from the raspberry swirl. We couldn’t detect any white chocolate flavor in the ice cream. The chocolate bits were quite tasty though.

  5. Was the sweetness level right? 8/10
  6. Did the flavor taste like it’s name and description? 9/10
  7. Would we buy it again? Yes, we would both buy it again, but mostly because of the keto-friendly macros (the only one that is actually high fat!).
  8. Macros: per 1/2 cup, 160kcals, 15g fat, 11g carbs, 3g fiber, 7g sugar alcohols, 2g protein
  9. Ingredient Quality: Erythritol for sugar alcohol + monk fruit. Best overall ingredients!
  10. Our Thoughts: The macros are the most redeeming quality of this ice cream.

Rebel Peanut Butter Fudge

Rebel Peanut Butter Fudge

  1. Icy: 10/10

  6. Did the flavor taste like it’s name and description? 8/10 (We would have liked just a hint more peanut butter flavor to shine through!)
  7. Would we buy it again? Yes, yes, YES! The ice cream overall is delicious, despite the chocolate being somewhat bitter, and the macros are awesome!
  8. Macros Per 1/2 Cup: 200kcals, 19g fat, 12g carbs, 3g fiber, 7g sugar alcohols, 3g protein
  9. Ingredient Quality: Erythritol for sugar alcohol + monk fruit. Best overall ingredients!
  10. Our Thoughts: Rebel comes through again! The macros on this one are similar to the Rebel Mint Chip, which we also enjoyed. We like this flavor even more, and it might just become our go-to because the macros are fantastic!

Enlightened Caramel Oatmeal Cookie Crunch

  1. Icy: 10/10

  4. Did we like the flavor overall? 9/10
  5. Was the sweetness level right? 7/10 (It was a bit too sweet.)
  6. Did the flavor taste like it’s name and description? 7/10 (We tasted oatmeal and strong cinnamon; we enjoyed it, but think cinnamon should be in the title so people know what to expect.)
  7. Would we buy it again? Alas, only one of us would buy this flavor again.

low carb ice cream review

Enlightened Snickerdoodle

  2. Creamy: 8/10 (Similar to Enlightened Caramel Oatmeal Cookie Crunch, this one was very pudding-y.)
  3. Mouthfeel: 7/10
  4. Did we like the flavor overall? 4/10 (Cinnamon should be a prevalent flavor in Snickerdoodle, but we didn’t detect cinnamon here!)
  5. Was the sweetness level right? 7/10
  6. Did the flavor taste like it’s name and description? 3/10
  7. Would we buy it again? Neither of us would buy it again.
  8. Macros: per 1/2 cup, 60kcals, 1.5g fat, 14g carbs, 5g fiber, 5g sugar alcohols, 6g protein
  9. Ingredient Quality: Erythritol for sugar alcohol + monk fruit
  10. Our Thoughts: We had high hopes for this one, but sadly, it had that weird pudding-like texture and not a lot of Snickerdoodle flavor.

low carb ice cream review

Enlightened Birthday Cake

Breyers Delights Creamy Chocolate

  1. Icy: 7/10
  2. Creamy: 6/10  
  3. Mouthfeel: 8/10 (Slightly slippery mouthfeel, closer to sorbet or gelato than ice cream.)
  4. Did we like the flavor overall? 10/10 (It tasted like dark chocolate, which we both love.)
  5. Was the sweetness level right? 10/10
  6. Did the flavor taste like it’s name and description? 10/10

  3. Mouthfeel: 6/10 (Slightly slimy/slippery mouthfeel.)

Low Carb Ice Cream Review

Also, a little TMI. BUT, because of all of the different artificial sweeteners our bellies were aching and bloated over the course of these 3-4 days. Lara more than Faith though because she suffers from multiple food sensitivities.

Enlightened’s Movie Night low carb ice cream, hands down was both of our favorites. It literally tasted the closeted to real ice cream and had the best flavor. Both Faith and I said we’d buy it again…and we have!
