I just discovered Arctic Zero non-dairy dessert (drawn in by the label, "when you feel like eating the whole pint, now you can!"). It's 150 calories for the whole pint! Great when I'm craving Ben & Jerry's but can't fit it into my day's food plan.
Question: what is the best way to eat it so it tastes most like ice cream? I had the chocolate flavor, and straight out of the freezer, it was very hard and icy; more like a rock-hard frozen sorbet than an ice cream. After I had eaten half the carton, I finally had the idea to chop it up and mix it up until it reached a consistency of softened ice cream, and THEN it tasted decadent. It was a lot of work to get all the lumps out with a spoon, though! What is the best way to eat it so that it tastes more like ice cream and has a consistency similar to ice cream? Defrost it in the microwave and then stir?
Also, what flavors do you like? I tried the chocolate. Did you like the Vanilla-Maple?
What is the best place to buy it? Earth Fare (local NC health food store) charges $5/pint!!
