Product Review: Graeter's New Less Indulgent Ice Cream

Last week Graeter's reached out to me to let me know about their new Low Glycemic & Diabetic Friendly Ice Cream. I thought - well I'm not diabetic - but if we're talking about free ice cream - I'm down. 

We had a little ice cream social at work to try out the new goodies. In addition to the new Low Glycemic flavors they sent along some of their tried & true favorites as well. The team loved it - several team members dug in before I told them there was a difference and they couldn't even tell! This Low Glycemic ice cream has half the sugar and 25% less fat.

How did they do it?

Graeter’s uses naturally sweet monk fruit extract, which comes from a small fruit that Buddhist monks have cultivated for centuries and treasured it for its unique sweetness, to make ice cream that is naturally low glycemic. Because of its concentrated sweetness, it takes only a small amount to make ice cream that tastes great, so you get the same Graeter’s taste with less sugar.

This Low Glycemic variety comes in three flavors: Chocolate Chip, Mint Chocolate Chip and Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Bean. I tried the Vanilla and it was as decadent as Graeter's ever is - so good! 

So - if you trying to watch your sugar/fat intake but can't say no to Graeter's - this is a great option! And I promise - you won't even be able to tell the difference!
