Healthy Ice Cream Treats: The Yummiest "Light" Options

We sent Hungry Girl Lisa Lillien, a FITNESS contributor, to the freezer case and asked her to sample some of the new "light" ice creams. (It's a tough job, we know, but somebody's gotta do it.) Here, her three favorites.
1. Dreyer's/Edy's Loaded Frozen Dairy Dessert, Cookies 'N Cream

If you like your ice cream packed with goodies, you'll love the new "Loaded" line. Yum! The big mystery: How do they manage to keep the calorie and fat count so low?

Nutrition facts per 1/2 cup: 110 calories, 2g protein, 18g carbohydrate, 3.5g fat (1.5g saturated), 1g fiber

2. Klondike Slim-A-Bear 100-Calorie Ice Cream Bars

Only slightly smaller than your average light ice cream sandwich, these treats are super-satisfying and pack two grams of fiber. For 100 calories, you can't beat it.

Nutrition facts per sandwich: 100 calories, 1g protein, 11g carbohydrate, 7g fat (5g saturated), 2g fiber

3. Weight Watchers Strawberry, Key Lime, and Passion Fruit Sherbet and Ice Cream Bars

If you're a fan of Creamsicles, you'll love these. They've got strawberry, passion fruit, or key lime sherbet on the outside and creamy vanilla ice cream on the inside. Mmm!

Nutrition facts per bar: 60 calories, <1g protein, 13g carbohydrate, 0.5g fat (0g saturated), <1g fiber
