Ice cream or sweets

Did any of you have any ice cream brands that are low sugar and approved for Bariatric’s?

I make my own "ice cream" like concoction very frequently. Nutritionally speaking its basically skim milk + Protein Powder

Personally I think the homemade stuff is going to be cheaper, healthier, and taste better than any of the store bought stuff.

I do frozen banana ice cream sometimes....you put frozen bananas in the food processor and eat it. LOL If you put some coco and splenda in there, it'll taste like chocolate banana ice cream. Not bad!

I'm not a fan of Halo Top....it has a weird powdery texture that kinda bugs me out. Kinda too sweet, too. (for me) Admittedly, I have not tried all the flavors.

This is my very favorite frozen treat: https://yasso.com/products/bars/chocolate-fudge/

I LOVE these...they taste so good, calories aren't bad and you get 6g of Protein for 80 calories! Much less guilt!

It's also nice that it's 80 calories of naughty that's in a nice little package...so you're not as tempted to overindulge.

Gotta be so careful with this stuff cause there's not much room for junk if you're getting your protein in and paying good attention to nutrition. For some folks, it can be a gateway to even naughtier things. (I am in danger of being just such an offender...so I watch this stuff really carefully)

I like Trader Joe's Cold Brew Latte Dessert Bars. They are not too sweet and only 40 calories

Halo top. There are so many flavors to choose from. I tried the Cookies and cream, which was good, but kinda blah. I added a little Sugar Free Chocolate Syrup and it helped.

I didn't like the Halo top flavor i tried (can't remember which one :o) but it was an odd texture thing for me too. I do like the Enlightened bars --- especially the mint chocolate chip ones but also like the frozen hot chocolate and the sea salt caramel. Mint chip ones are 90 calories/7 g of protein/6 g of Fiber.< a href="https://www.eatenlightened.com/products/mint-chip-swirl-ice-cream-bars" rel="external nofollow">https://www.eatenlightened.com/products/mint-chip-swirl-ice-cream-bars

I got a Cuisinart ice cream maker for Christmas - haven't made anything yet but looking forward to making some of my own sans preservatives...

Rarely if I have ice cream I usually just have a very small bit of the regular stuff. For me that has two advantages:

1 it satisfies me

2 if I have more than a kiddie size I feel very nauseous so I never over indulge.

halo is great, but has sugar alchol so could be an issue if you are sensitive to that.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
