Sure, you can select an ice cream that's lighter in calories. But if you also want it to taste great, the search isn't so easy -- until now. The Diabetic Living staff bundled up to brave the frozen foods section in search of ice cream and frozen yogurt (in vanilla and chocolate flavors) that met our diabetes nutritional requirements.
Every ice cream tested had to meet these health requirements per 1/2-cup serving:
-- 150 calories or less
-- 5 g total fat or less
-- 3 g saturated fat or less
-- 0 g trans fat
-- 20 g carb or less (1 carb choice!)
-- 100 mg sodium or less
-- At least 8 percent DV of calcium
