I don’t know about you but ice cream is one of my must have desserts, in the summer and even when it’s cold out ( as long as I’m not sick, I’m game!) I sometimes find myself feeling guilty for eating it more than I should. Do you sometimes wish ice cream could be good for you?
Well, lucky for you and I someone’s found a solution. Yes, someone felt that sorry for us that they made an ice cream that’s healthy…wait, come again? Brio is a new recently launched premium frozen dairy dessert that is also nutritious. The idea was birthed by two siblings, who sought to make their mother’s wish come true. Her wish was the same as you and I’s, “why can’t my favorite foods also be healthy?” The duo, along with a group of food developers, registered dietitians and nutritionists, created Brio in honor of their mother’s wish.
Brio has just about 160 to 170 calories per 4 ounce serving, and is an excellent source of 24 essential vitamins and minerals. Each serving has 6 grams of protein, 2 grams of fiber and Omega 3s; it has low glycemic, is certified non-GMO and Gluten free. Brio has no artificial flavors or sweeteners, but instead uses all-natural and organic flavors and sweeteners.
Brio sent me samples of their 5 flavors to try and share with you ( one’s not pictured, I ate it!) The frozen desserts come in; Vanilla/Caramel, Spring Strawberry, Tropical Mango, Mellow Dark Chocolate and Coffee Latte. My favorites thus far are the Coffee Latte and Strawberry. The sizes came in a 4 ounce serving cup, which is quite enough of a serving. I plan to use some in a smoothie, I think that will make a delicious and nutritious addition. The desserts are now available in Houston at your local Central Market. If you pick some up, be sure to come back and let me know what you thought.
