Dessert Every Day with Arctic Zero


I am a girl who wakes up every morning thinking about food. I love it. I want to eat dessert every day and chocolate as a chaser. Some people love sports teams or One Direction or their dog… I love sweets.

I  realize eating dessert every day isn’t the healthiest habit to have.

But I also realize I don’t want to live in a world where I can’t have a treat!

So, when I heard about Arctic Zero frozen dessert a few years ago I was all about it. I LOVE frozen yogurt and ice cream and I saw this option at the grocery store that only has 150 calories for the whole pint. WHAT?! Is this Heaven because I’m staying.

Now. I do have to explain to some of you that Arctic Zero is a frozen dessert and not ice cream’s identical twin. But if you are used to healthy swaps it’s amazing. Plus, since it’s so low cal I scoop half a pint into a cup and top it with sugar free chocolate syrup and some granola to get wild Winking smile

My favorite flavor is probably the chocolate peanut butter. I add some warm PB to this because I like it melty.

The company recently sent me a whole truckload of their frozen dessert flavors plus some ice cream bars. These are a little harder to find but I’ve heard they are at Walmart or

Since I am trying to slowly wean myself off the Christmas cookie diet without going into withdrawals I’ve been enjoying Arctic Zero after dinner as a replacement.

Tip: It freezes pretty solid so you have to set it out for bit to soften (or pop it in the microwave like I do for 20 seconds).

I personally love the stuff. It is a little pricey, but there are more expensive habits to have so I am okay with that.

I feel like it’s a protein shake that is closer to a dessert than anything else I’ve tried. Bonus: It’s non-GMO and lactose intolerant friendly.

Question: Do you have dessert every day?

I do.

    I always have to eat SOMETHING after dinner, and it’s either dessert or dessert-like. I wish they had Arctic Zero in Canada SO badly! I get super snacky at night and I feel like it would just solve all of my life’s problems. 😉

    I am a huge fan of Artic Zero! I love the flavor and texture, I have to eat dairy free and gluten free and these are perfect! To me they taste just like regular ice cream, I think because I have not had ice cream in so long! haha

    I feel like my day is missing something if I don’t have something sweet. I prefer my desserts after lunch though, I think it makes my work day better. So I have a stash of the dark chocolate/blueberry Brookestone treats in my desk drawer… well I did … but I’m going to have to check out this Arctic Zero stuff…

    I tend to make full calorie desserts and limit my portions. I tried to eat low fat, low sugar desserts and they never satisfied. I do like some of the weight watchers ice cream bars. But they are not all natural.

    OMG – I am a frozen yogurt fanatic! I dream of opening my own yoyo shop someday! They’re especially popular in Arizona because of the heat. Where do you buy arctic zero? I like to eat the Weight Watchers Smart Ones sundaes – the chocolate chip cookie dough or raspberry white chocolate cheesecake. All under 150 calories! They’re enough to satisfy my sweet tooth without going overboard.

    I <3 arctic zero. You're right, it doesn't taste exactly like ice cream, but it does scratch that frozen desert itch. They had a pumpkin spice that was stellar.

    One thing I've found this IS just about like actual ice cream is halo top creamery ice cream. It's light, organic, and 70 calories for a serving. They have a lemon cake flavor that is to die for!

    I definitely have “dessert” every day. I need at least a piece or two of dark chocolate to keep me sane. I’ll have a real dessert, such as ice cream or hot chocolate, probably about once a week.

    I haven’t heard of Arctic Zero before, but I definitely want to try it out. Despite the arctic (see what I did there? 😉 temperatures outside in Massachusetts lately, us New Englanders can eat ice cream (or ice cream-like products) year round! I believe we consume the most ice cream of the entire country. Not sure if that’s something to brag about or not…

    I love my sweets, but I’ve been eating so many healthy, whole foods lately that by the time I’m done eating I don’t have room for dessert! I guess that can be a good thing, depending on how you look at it :-/

  9. says

    I’d never heard of them before, and I was really skeptical about what they were doing to make it so low-cal, but then I checked out their website and was pretty darn happy with their ingredient list! Good one on em! If they want to ship me a truckload as well, I wouldn’t complain haha!

    I have an awful sweets habit. Basically i want dessert after every meal. And snack. Clearly this isn’t the best life plan though. I LOVE chocolate covered almonds, and have been trying to have these as my dessert. But i think this still ends up as too many calories? I was also trying to just have a banana with chocolate nut butter at the end of the day…should probably go back to that. Yesterday i made a pan of frikin delicious gluten free dairy free brownies. We ate the whole pan (it was smallish) and i don’t feel at all bad about it. They were good.
    I can’t do dairy, which is to bad (for many reasons obviously) cause artic zero sounds right up my ally. Probably it good though, i don’t need another dessert to love. I REALLY want change my sugar habits :(

    Looks good! Could serve as a substitute for my Dairy Queen runs…ha ha! That’s a habit I’ve tried hard at breaking and it’s way more expensive! But I ususually have a little something sweet every day even if it’s just a little chocolate.

  12. says

    YUM! Looks like I will be having some Arctic Zero for a Superbowl treat! (Or just to cool off my mouth after Buffalo chicken wings, meatballs, and your “healthy taco dip” 😉

  13. Rebecca says

    I love this stuff! Cookies and Cream is my favorite – it’s actually really creamy! For people in SoCal, you can find it at Ralph’s or Fresh & Easy (cheaper at F&E).

  14. Nicole says

    I tend to need something sweet to finish a meal! I love the vanilla maple artic zero! Yum!

    You can also find it at Whole Foods.

    i definitely eat dessert everyday but i seriously cannot get into arctic zero :( i don’t know if its the aftertaste or what …. 😕 ugh

  16. Shannon in Tustin says

    Always something! Even if its a few dark chocolate covered almonds (TJ’s) after dinner. #needatreat

  17. says

    I am trying to be better and someone brought dunkin donuts into work today..I made it until after lunch…then I had a half..and then went back for the other half. The fact I waited almost 5 hours is a record for me…but need to work on it

  18. says

    Oh my god Arctic Zero is my LIFE SAVER! I’ve never tried the chocolate pb one but it sounds delicious. I never thought I would be able to eat an entire pint of “ice cream” without feeling guilty.

  19. says

    Yes I have desert everyday -____- not good lol. I have never heard of this stuff before. I certainly never saw it at Walmart. hmmm. But at only 150 calories you can’t really go wrong. But then again, tomorrow is the Super Bowl and I know I will be stuffing my face with junk anyway. Great post.

    I love deserts and eat them every day! and i love your blog, but this post just made me very sad — i haven’t seen Artic Zero in Dubai, where i live :(

    I love Arctic Zero! First time I tried it, I didn’t like it because I guess my expectations were that it would be like ice cream, but I gave it another shot a year later after reading about it on a blog, and I’m glad I did! It is perfect for feeling like you’re having something really special on a low-calorie-type day. Normally I make all my desserts from scratch, but since I’m so into that – I have been known to make 6 cakes side by side to compare them, there are sometimes a few days where I need to lay low on the sugar – LOL. Arctic zero is my go-to treat. I love the Cookies ‘n cream, Mint Chocolate, Chocolate Peanut Butter (just tastes like chocolate to me) and Coffee. I would like to try the rest of the flavors (next time I need to, hehe). I still eat my home-made desserts 99% of the time, but it is so nice to be able to eat an entire PINT of something for a few days in a row when I need to be “good.” I usually pick up a couple of pints at a time, they are really fun. Might get tired of them after a week, but it’s never that long for me. Also, I might not get tired of them :)
