If you’re anything like me, it’s not truly summer until you have a stockpile of creamy, dreamy ice cream pints in your home freezer! Two weeks ago, my friends at Arctic Zero sent our family a case of their delicious Fit Frozen Desserts just in time for summer. We celebrated the longest day of the year with an ice cream party and movie night at home. We had so much fun! The ice cream was a delicious treat on that hot day and sitting on my patio watching my family play brought back such fun memories from the summers of my youth!
Something that initially peaked my interest in the company is that as a child, ARCTIC ZERO founder, Greg Holtman, vividly remembers caring for his mother–a type-1 diabetic. While Greg and his family loved sweets, especially ice cream, most desserts at the time contained artificial sweeteners and ingredients. Unwilling to compromise between indulging his sweet tooth and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, Greg set out to craft a functional, yet indulgent, dessert with premium ingredients.
After years of recipe tinkering using ingredients you can understand, ARCTIC ZERO was born – a line of Fit Frozen Desserts with zero compromises. As someone with insulin-resistant PCOS, I was delighted to see how those who live with glucose sensitivities like myself, were taken into consideration with the creation and formulation of this product line!
With some sweet desserts like cake, pie, and ice cream spike my own blood glucose levels, but with Fit Frozen Desserts I can enjoy guilt-free when I crave something sweet during the summer!
I love that ARCTIC ZERO Fit Frozen Desserts Pints are the perfect zero-guilt sweet treats for moms who care about clean, healthy ingredients. Each crave-worthy, low-calorie, lactose-free pint is made with hormone-free whey protein and sweetened naturally with monk fruit, making it low in sugar but high on taste. We had the opportunity to sample their Cookie Shake, Cherry Chocolate Chip, Cake Batter, Salted Caramel, Rocky Road Trip, and Peanut Butter Swirl varieties.
Overall, I liked each flavor. I have since purchased all the Arctic Zero flavors, as my family liked them so much, with the Cherry Chocolate Chunk, Vanilla Maple, and Toasted Coconut varieties being my favorites. On a hot summer day treat, they are so yummy.
For serving frozen desserts with the perfect creamy texture, we let them thaw out for 15 minutes before digging into each dessert, and as you might have guessed, everyone in our family came back for seconds.
Keep in mind, Arctic Zero is a frozen dessert similar to ice cream but doesn’t have the same thickness or texture. If you’ve ever tried sherbet or lactose-free ice cream made from soy milk then you’ll be aware of the texture Arctic Zero brings to the table. The product is like enjoying a frozen smoothie pint. Still cold, sweet, and tasty, but less creamy than traditional dairy products. And as someone with gluten and glucose intolerances, this is a product I look forward to eating, feel confdent feeding my family, and would gladly serve company as well!
