National Ice Cream Month!

July is National Ice Cream month! Since July 1984, celebrations nationwide are held for this cool and tasty dessert. Celebrate this month with 3 healthier ice cream recommendations from NBCnews.com that won’t hurt your diet:

 Halo Top

This ice cream gets great reviews because it tastes great and even offers dairy-free options. Reviewers say that this brand is pretty close to the real deal while being low-calorie (ranging from 240 – 360) and high protein. A fan favorite is the vanilla flavor.

Chloe’s Pops

This brand is certified gluten-free, as well as dairy-free, vegan and kosher pareve. Each flavor is made from fruit, water and organic cane sugar. At 60 calories per fruit pop, this is a guilt-free treat to stock in your fridge.

Dole Dippers

Offering the best of both worlds—real frozen fruit and chocolate—Dole Dippers feature tasty flavors: banana, pineapple and strawberry. The banana flavor only has 100 calories per pack and has no genetically modified (or engineered) ingredients.
