A few months back I saw some “Red Velvet” ice cream at my local grocery store and being the red velvet addict I am, I knew I had to buy it. Surely I did, I went home and devoured the whole pint that has 24g of protein and 280 calories! It was AH-MAZING!
So, I’m super pumped today to be collaborating with the brand behind the heavenly ice cream, Enlightened.
About the brand:
“At ENLIGHTENED, we create snacks that go beyond “better-for- you.” We believe that food should make you feel as good as it tastes, and we push boundaries and challenge convention when it comes to indulging and snacking.
That’s why we first created ENLIGHTENED Ice Cream bars in 2013, paving the way for a new category in the ice cream aisle. Packed with protein, fiber, and flavor—and light on calories, fat, and sugar—ENLIGHTENED Ice Cream proves that amazing taste and nutrition can coexist.
As our ice cream bars began flying off store shelves, we started to think even bigger. What if ENLIGHTENED could create a healthy, higher-protein, lower-sugar alternative to everyone’s cravings? From savory to sweet and creamy to crunchy, there were so many possibilities, and we want to tackle them all!
With each of these what-ifs came a new product: Ice Cream Pints, Roasted Broad Bean Crisps, and Crispy Marshmallow Treats. That’s what we do at ENLIGHTENED: we “enlighten” your favorite treats, elevating them beyond glorified junk foods with empty health claims. Instead of just reducing calories, we replace sugar and fat with protein and fiber and use quality ingredients to make your favorite indulgences nutritionally sound.
After all, being ENLIGHTENED isn’t just about one thing. It’s about finding balance in every day and having fun in every moment—and in every bite.” (source**)
As you just read, they make more than ice cream! They now make yummy bean crisps and scrumptious marshmallow treats!
These products come in an array of flavors that are perfect for people with a sweet or salty preference. As a vegetarian, I’m always looking for ways to get more protein besides my usual “protein bar.” This brand totally changed the game for me!
I also got the chance to try out there “Mint Chocolate Chip” ice cream. Oh my word! I might like it even more than the red velvet; and for me that’s saying something. This ice cream is so creamy, smooth and flavorful. It tastes like you just went to your local ice cream shop. There is no “diet” or “watered-down” flavor here. I promise!
I do recommend sitting this ice cream out 10-15 minutes before digging in! It makes it even more yummy!
All in all, I have nothing negative to say. I love finding brands that I am so passionate about and getting to share them with you all! It makes being a blogger even more fun and rewarding. Also, I get to share an awesome giveaway with you, too! See below for details!
Hope you enjoyed my review! Have a marvelous day, friends!
