This post is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Chilly Cow®. The opinions and text are all mine.
I will NEVER turn down the chance to write about dessert...Would YOU? I was thrilled when I recently discovered Chilly Cow® half pints and bars for their new campaign Save Yourself From Yourself. Guess which flavor I went for?!?!? The peanut butter one of course!!! There are plenty of delicious flavors to choose from...Brown Butter Salted Caramel, Chocolate Brownie Batter, and Mint Dark Chocolate Chip, BUT, as soon as I saw the Sweet Cream Peanut Butter...SOLD!
Before we dive into my full review of this product, let’s talk about my relationship with sweet treats. I LOVE sweets and I definitely treat myself to them, but not on a regular basis. Why? One: It is not a lifestyle choice that works for me. I have many friends who have something sweet every night. That works for them, which is great. Two: My body does not handle regular sweet treats well. It messes up my sleep pattern and can sometimes upset my stomach, so I am careful with how much I consume. Three: I truly do not crave sweets regularly, so I am not going to force something. There are many times after dinner that Shannon has ice cream or cookies, but I choose not to join in the sweet party, because I honestly just do not want it.
With ALL of that being said, when I do get those sweet cravings, I GO FOR IT! I listen to my body. I give it what wants, when it wants it. I no longer deny it of the foods that it craves, whatever they may be. Sometimes it is all the greens. Sometimes it is all the wine, cheese, and bread. And sometimes it is delicious dessert, because who can say NO to creamy goodness?!?!? Life is about balance. Life is about having fun. Life is about making mistakes and learning from them. In the end, when it comes to food, workouts, and life, do YOU. Do what makes YOU happy…RIGHT? So now that I am done preaching, let us talk about Chilly Cow lower calories Ice Cream!
What do you need to know about Chilly Cow?
These Half Pints are jam-packed with protein! The Sweet Cream Peanut Butter Half Pint has 13g;
55% fewer calories than regular ice cream;
60% less sugar than regular ice cream;
70% less fat than regular ice cream;
It is made with ultra-filtered milk…What does that exactly mean anyway? I had no clue either, so I looked it up. Ultra-filtered is milk that is run through a very fine filter for the purpose of removing some sugar and water from the milk and concentrating the remaining protein.

How did I ENJOY my Chilly Cow?
With ALL the toppings of course! Don’t get me wrong, they are delicious without the toppings, but when it comes to treating myself to sweets, I like to GO BIG sometimes. More peanut butter on top? YES PLEASE! Homemade granola for some extra crunch? YES PLEASE! The beauty of dessert is that you can never really go wrong with any toppings. Since I do not have any candy in my condo, peanut butter and granola are a “better-for-you” option, but also a really delicious one. I am getting all my macros…WINNING!
Overall, I honestly, really enjoyed Chilly Cow! I approve of the ingredients, the flavor, and the message of their campaign - Save Yourself From Yourself! High-fives to a company that FINALLY has nailed it with a lighter-ice cream that actually tastes good.
