What are the healthiest choices for frozen desserts?

Try topping a ½ cup serving of ice cream with ½ cup of low calorie berries. The high fiber berries will provide bulk and satiety, or that feeling of fullness, for fewer calories than a second scoop of ice cream. Buying pre-portioned bars of dessert can also help control calories as long as you don’t go back to the freezer for another bar.

When choosing frozen desserts choose varieties that contain 3 grams or less of fat per 4-ounce serving (1/2 cup). Look for low-fat frozen yogurt or low- or fat-free ice cream. Try frozen fruit juice bars with fewer than 70 calories per bar. Avoid desserts made with cream of coconut, coconut milk, or coconut or palm oil, which are high in saturated fat or contain trans fats.
