While we are always in awe of Trader Joe’s new products, fresh produce, and seasonal finds, right now we can’t seem to get over the brand’s high-protein “light” ice cream. With two different reduced-calorie protein-packed flavors to choose from, it really doesn’t get much better, does it? Think: indulging in a less fat, fewer calorie, and higher protein dessert all night long . . . Oops, sorry — were we drooling?
The two flavors are Joe-Joe’s Cookies & Cream Light Ice Cream and Chocolate Peanut Butter Light Ice Cream, and they feature milk protein concentrate, according to the company’s website. Per pint, Cookies & Cream has 20 grams of protein, 310 calories, and seven grams of fat, and you’ll find 23 grams of protein, 370 calories, and 12 grams of fat in a pint of Chocolate Peanut Butter. They’re sweetened with stevia, cane sugar, and monk fruit extract and contain zero sugar alcohols. Oh, and the best part? Each pint is superaffordable — we’re talking less than $3. We’ll see you at checkout!
Prices and products may vary by Trader Joe’s location.
