When you're browsing the freezer aisle, look for lower-fat milk options, which will cut back the calories and saturated fat, says Ginn. Keep in mind that full-fat ice creams are usually made with heavy cream, while Ginn says gelato is generally made with 2-percent milk and sherbets with 1-percent.
Another tip: look for "slow churned" ice cream. Ginn says the slow-churning process creates more air volume in your treat, so you get fewer calories and fat per delicious bite. Dreyer's/ Edy's Slow Churned Vanilla Light Ice Cream won a Healthy Food Award from SELF this year -- a half a cup will only cost you 100 calories and 3.5 grams of fat!
When it comes to high-calorie toppings, aside from BACON, Ginn suggests passing on wet nuts, hot fudge and marshmallow creme. "For a healthier choice," she says, "go for fresh fruit, crushed nuts, chocolate sauce or just a dollop of whipped cream."
