It’s ice cream season, which means we’re constantly on the lookout for new low calorie ice cream brands that are both delicious and (relatively) healthy for you. We’ve rounded up our top 5 choices for this summer so you have your ice cream and eat it too.




First prize goes to fan favorite, Enlightened. The brand is “high protein, low sugar” and calls itself “the-good-for-you ice cream”. Pints range from 60 calories to 100 calories per ½ cup serving, and there is a perfect flavor for everyone (our favorites are sea salt caramel and s’mores).


Halo Top


The brand that started it all has to make the list, right?! Halo Top is the brand that got everyone talking about the wonders of low-cal ice creams, and they’re still one of the best. Halo has great dairy flavors (like chocolate mocha chip and birthday cake) and great non-dairy flavors (like caramel macchiato and candy bar) so you can get your ice cream fix no matter what your diet is. Pints range from 280 calories to 360 calories for the whole pint, just 70-90 calories for a ½ cup serving!


Ben and Jerry’s Moo-Phoria


Ben and Jerry’s is a newcomer to the light ice cream craze and their three new moo-phoria flavors do not disappoint. It’s no secret that the best part about Ben and Jerry’s are their unique flavors and their delicious chunks of candy in their pints. Get your sugar fix without overdoing it with Caramel Cookie Fix (150 calories per ½ cup serving), Chocolate Milk & Cookies (140 calories per ½ cup serving) , and P.B. Dough (160 calories per ½ cup serving)! We’re already craving new light flavors.




Yasso is technically Greek frozen yogurt, but it’s so creamy and delicious that we had to include it on our list. Known for their bars (16 options!), the brand recently launched 8 new pints to satisfy your cravings. Bars range from 80 calories to 130 calories, while pints are between 100 calories and 150 calories per ½ cup serving. If you’re looking for a creamier low-cal option or an ice cream bar, Yasso is your best bet.


Breyers Delights


Another traditional ice cream company making a splash in the low-cal world is Breyers. Offering nine flavor options (our favorite is butter pecan), pints come in between 260 and 330 calories for the whole pint, or just 90 calories to 110 calories for a (larger) ⅔ cup serving. We know that Breyers knows ice cream– and they’ve figured out how to bring their delicious brand to us with less calories.
