Arctic Zero Maple Vanilla

Author: Healthnuttxo

What is Arctic Zero?

According to the  container, “Arctic Zero is an all natural, smooth and creamy ice cream replacement”. The entire pint has “16 grams of whey protein, 8 grams of fiber” and is also “gluten free”.

One serving, 1/2 cup, is 37 calories and 4 grams of protein. Wait….WHAT?!

Yep, that’s what the label says! The entire pint is 150 calories.  And seeing how I happen to love the flavor of maple, I put this little container in my shopping cart, paid, and went off to try it.

The first thing I noticed was the consistency. It was super smooth and creamy like ice cream, it was kind of like a smoothie being frozen, or a harder sherbet. When I placed it into my bowl, it was kind of choppy. I put about half the container in my bowl, and sprinkled a good amount of granola on top for some crunch.

I actually ate some before I took a picture. Whoops! 🙂

By itself, it had a very artificial maple flavor, kind of like the artificial maple syrup. It also had kind of a funky aftertaste, and an off sweet flavor. I wasn’t really into it by itself.

However, with the granola, it was really quite good. The crunchiness of the granola made the Arctic Zero feel creamier, and I actually enjoyed it. I certainly reccommend a topping if you are going to buy or eat this, because I wasn’t really crazy about it as is. I did like that it had 4 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber per serving. Overall, 3 stars.

1/2 cup (74 grams) is 37 calories, 0 grams of fat, 7 grams of carbohydrates, 2 grams of fiber, 7 grams of sugar, and 4 grams of protein.

Have you ever tried Arctic Zero? Which flavor?

  • I’ve had this one, the chocolate and the choc/peanut butter. This one is definitely the best. It’s not that great on it’s own, but if you mix some peanut butter in it, its delicious and a very low cal treat (depending on how much pb you add of course). I also like to eat it once it’s softened up a little and kind of slushy rather than when it’s hard as a rock. It’s easier to stir the pb in that way too.

    It doesn’t taste like Ben & Jerry’s but it’s something I can finally eat by the pint and it’s good for me. As for the taste though, it’s got no fat, it’s all natural, it’s a protein shake essentially, and it’s got only 150 calories instead of 1,500 so then again why would it taste like Ben & Jerry’s? lol

  • Wow! This is amazing! I must find Artic Zero somewhere! 😉

  • omg I want to try!! where did you find this?

  • Healthnuttxo says:

    found this one at Whole Foods right by the ice cream! hopefully you can find some! if you do, let me know how you like it!

    I have been a fan on Arctic Zero for 2 years now and I must say my favorite is the mint, with chocolate peanut butter a close second. Arctic Zero has been expanding over the last year, and Costco is currently doing trials to see what flavors they will soon begin carrying! (the price will drop to less than $2.95 a pint, as opposed to over $4 at Whole Foods)
