Skinny Cow Chocolate Mousse Ganache

When I had saw that Skinny Cow had come out with a new ice cream cone, I was put on the hunt. Unfortunately I came up empty handed for nearly 2 months until just recently I spotted the Skinny Cow Chocolate Mousse Ganache ice creams at my local Target. Since I was so excited to find them I purchased a box and unfortunately enough they weren’t on sale when I purchased.
Typically I am a fan of Skinny Cow ice cream because I find the brand simply gets it right. Deliciously “healthier for you” ice cream which is lower in fat, calories or points plus values in comparison to some of the other ice creams on the market.  The ice cream itself is a blend of vanilla and chocolate ice creams and chocolate ganache. The whole shebang is pretty good … but I have to say the best part is the little glob of ganache at the center of the top of the cone. Sadly, the ganache wasn’t as plentiful as I would have hoped for (I was hoping for a chocolate ganache core). The ganache was the flavor that I savored the most … whereas the rest of the ice cream is the classic smooth creamy ice cream Skinny Taste is known to provide.
Would I repurchase them again? Probably if I were in the mood for an ice cream cone … although I may give the mint a shot to see if it’s any better than the chocolate mousse.
Each cone is 160 calories or 4 points plus values.

Skinny Cow Cupcake Batter Ice Cream

When I saw Skinny Cowhad released a new single serving ice cream Cupcake Batter Ice Cream (wayyyy back in March!), I was immediately on the hunt.  Sadly, my hunting continuously came up high and dry because I couldn’t find them anywhere – they just were not available in my area for the longest time — until recently. I’ve seen them popping up on grocery store shelves, so I of course had to grab one to give it a whirl.
One thing I love about Skinny Cow ice creams is they taste just as good as the full-fat point heavy ice creams on the market. They also make shopping simpler because the points plus values are printed on the packaging making choosing a little easier.
I’m a lover of cake batter ice cream, but I believe I may have hyped this point friendly cupcake batter ice cream up more than I should have. Perhaps I made it too good to be true because after a few bites, sadly, I was no longer impressed.  The cupcake/cake batter flavor fizzled after 3-bites and I was left with something that kind of resembled caramel.  It was odd. I doubt I’ll be buying another one of these … I’ll stick with my beloved Skinny Cow cones and sandwiches.
This single serve ice cream cup is 4 points plus.

Skinny Cow Cookies n Cream Ice Cream Sandwiches

I have been a big fan of Skinny Cow ice creams because they’re a healthier alternative to some of the other ice creams on the market.  Even though they are a healthier alterative, you’re definitely not sacrificing taste or flavor for lesser calories and fat.
I purchased the Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Sandwiches because cookies and cream is my all time favorite gallon ice cream flavor.  I’ve tried low fat cookies and cream ice creams in the past and haven’t always been the biggest fan because the ice cream is more icy than creamy.  The sandwiches are just pure delicious – a nice chocolate cookie “crust” and a smooth and creamy cookie filled ice cream.  A great treat, so great that even those who don’t necessarily count calories or watch what they eat, reach for these when they’re in the freezer and I offer up ice cream.
One whole sandwich is 4 points plus values, which is completely worth it when in comparison to some of the other outrageously high point ice creams on n freezer shelves.  Plus the great things with Skinny Cows is since they’ve repackaged their boxes each ice cream sandwich is individually wrapped for better quality and freshness!

Skinny Cow Pretty in Pink Velvet Truffle Ice Cream

I feel I always sing praises round Skinny Cow ice creams.  They make healthier alternatives to ice cream that taste amazing.  The one thing that comes with eating healthier is you sometimes have to sacrifice flavor and thankfully that is not the case with this.
This is the first time I’ve tried the Pretty in Pink Velvet Truffle Ice Cream and I have to say it’s quite delicious!  It’s a cream cheese flavored frosting that is drizzled over a pink velvet ice cream.  AMAZING!  It’s so creamy and delicious.  It almost has that creamy cheesecake sort of feel to it even though it’s ice cream.  I just found I really enjoyed this flavor.  And the greatest part with Skinny Cow is they print the Weight Watchers points right onto the back of their product containers which makes things (well, easy point wise – not choice wise!).  All this goodness for only 3 Points Plus!

Skinny Cow Chocolate Covered Cherry Ice Cream Cones

I’ve learned over the years that having delicious ice cream, doesn’t mean that you have to have ice cream which is loaded with unnecessary fat and sugar.  Most people assume when you’re on a weight loss journey that there are certain things that are just off limits – and that’s not the case.  You can have anything you want in moderation, but it’s up to you to decide if it’s worth it or not.  Some full-fat ice creams are just not worth it in my eyes, so in those cases I reach for healthier alternatives to ice cream – one of my favorite brands being Skinny Cow.
I spotted the Chocolate Covered Cherry Ice Cream at Target, so I decided to pick it up because it sounded delicious.  It’s got cherry low fat ice cream which is wrapped in a chocolate cone with fudge topping.  Now I love chocolate covered cherry chocolates, so I figured this just had to be delicious – and it was!  The ice cream was a delicious cherry flavoring mixed with a bit of chocolate sauce.  I am a cone fan, so the chocolate cone was definitely a home-run!
The greatest part?  The ice cream only has 150 calories in it, and it’s only 4 points plus.

Skinny Cow Peanut Butter Crème Filled Chocolates

I spotted these Skinny Cow Peanut Butter Crème filled chocolates while at Dollar Tree.  I had purchased the caramel filled chocolates but had yet to try them.  But considering I am a sucker for anything peanut butter candy related I had to purchase them – and I am glad I did!  I’m a sucker for peanut butter cups, but sometimes the points plus associated with them isn’t too appealing.
The package comes with 3 thinner peanut butter filled chocolate crème candies.  The candy is a nice, smooth milk chocolate with a thin filling of peanut butter in the middle of them.  It’s nice, smooth and creamy.  The greatest part is each pack is only 130 calories – 4 points plus.  BUT if you wanted to eat 1 it’s 1 points plus, 2 is 2 points plus and the 3 is four points plus.  Quite a yummy treat.t!  This would be great to bring to the movie theater for your chocolate fix!
