Let’s talk about low calorie ice cream and Mexican Hot Chocolate Sundae’s – okay? You might be wondering what a Mexican Hot Chocolate Sundae is. It’s pure bliss. I’m sure there are several variations, but mine includes a crumbly, crunch topping that’s bursting with cinnamon, chocolate, and a hint of spice. Yes!

I’m not usually an ice cream person, but my husband is. Ice cream is one of his favorite treats.
I do like to enjoy a good ice cream sundae occasionally, but it wouldn’t usually be my first choice for dessert because ice cream is so high in calories.
If I’m going to spend some serious calories, I’m going for a piece of cake.
Kroger recently released a new low-calorie ice cream under the Simple Truth brand called Low Cow.
You guys already know that I love Simple Truth products.
Low Cow currently has 6 flavors to choose from: Chocolate, Vanilla Bean, Sea Salt Caramel, Lemon Cake, Mint Chocolate Chip, and Birthday Cake.
We recently tried Simple Truth’s new Low Cow Ice Cream and fell in love.
It contains 80% less fat than leading brands of ice cream, 60% fewer calories, and has a whopping 24 grams of protein per pint! Each flavor is carefully crafted so you only miss out on calories, not on taste.
Low Cow is non-GMO, gluten free, and made with absolutely no artificial ingredients or preservatives.
Even though it’s lower in calories and fat, it’s smooth, rich and creamy, and not watering or chalky like other low-calorie ice creams.

We picked up a few pints of chocolate Low Cow the other day from our local Kroger store, Fred Meyer, and decided to make sundaes with it.
Earlier this year I made Mexican Hot Chocolate Cupcakes and I’ve been craving them but hesitant to turn on the oven.
I recreated the flavor uses healthy, simple ingredients – in the form of an ice cream sundae.
My husband and kids went nuts over Low Cow Lite Ice Cream and these Mexican Hot Chocolate Sundaes.
The sundaes tasted like an indulgent treat that you might get at an ice cream shop but they were less expensive, low-calorie, and loaded with protein.
I’m trying to find a reason that I shouldn’t have ice cream for breakfast. So far, I can’t think of anything.
Low Cow is just rolling out in stores and most Fred Meyers charge $5 or less. You can find Low Cow at your local Fred Meyer store. Stop by and pick up a pint.
