Triple Chocolate Ice cream

Calories: 45 calories in 1/4 cup serving
Cost: $2.99 for 1 container of ice cream
Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Ice Cream Theme Week.
This Enlightened higher protein, lower sugar, Triple Chocolate ice cream (Better Beyond Foods, Inc., Bronx, NY) was threaded with dark chocolate sauce. It was both light and full of rich chocolate flavor. And not too sweet.
I'm not sure how this would fare in a side-by-side tasting with a full-fat ice cream (hard to beat the mouthfeel of real dairy milk and cream); but it's also hard to beat a frozen dessert with only 45 calories for 1/4 cup serving.

Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate and Ice Cream Theme Week.
Today's Enlightened Frozen Hot Cocoa ice cream was produced for Beyond Better Foods, Inc. (Bronx, NY).
What made it different? It was lower in calories and carbs (lower sugar) and higher in protein than most other popular frozen dessert treats.
In keeping with the hot cocoa concept, this relatively light and naturally sweet-tasting, chocolate ice cream was larded (sugared?) with a bit of white marshmallow ripple.
