A few weeks back, my new friends at Arctic Zero reached out to see if I’d be interested in sampling some of their tasty dessert treats.
Having tried several flavors already, I was definitely game to try some more. After exchanging a few email, I arrived home to find this incredible box.
Considering that my freezer is usually jammed packed with Jenny meals, I was a little worried about having enough room for all of these new treats. Arctic Zero comes in the following pints: chocolate, chocolate peanut butter, coffee, cookies & cream, mint chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla maple.
So… What is Arctic Zero?
I found this product at my local King Soopers/Kroger a year ago for the first time, after reading about it on one of the blogs I follow. It’s a high protein dessert product that can be used in place of ice cream, and is perfect for people looking to avoid all the calories and fat that come with ice cream. People like me!
Not only is it only 150 calories per pint, but it’s also gluten free, fat free, and GMO-free. Not to mention delicious!
While it’s going to take me a while to get through all of this Arctic Zero, and I was inspired to try out another milkshake flavor and share it with all of you… Click here to see the first version I made. So good!
I tend to prefer my Arctic Zero in milkshake form, as that little bit of milk helps to froth up the frozen dessert to the consistency of a Wendy’s “Frosty.” And the best news, the recipe couldn’t be any simpler! Who doesn’t love a tasty milkshake at the end of the night??
This milkshake is also minty fresh… and perfect for around the holidays! I had some peppermint extract on hand to add, but I didn’t even need it. The Arctic Zero was minty fabulous all on its own!
