What To Eat with Diabetes: Winning Ice Creams
By Jessie Shafer and Elizabeth Burt, R.D., L.D.
The next time you’re craving a bowl of ice cream, scoop up one of our 16 best consumer-tasted and dietitian-approved finalists or winners. We conducted blind taste panels for more than 100 people, including people with diabetes, and awarded the top-rated ice creams our Diabetic Living What to Eat seal of approval.
Taste-Tested & Diabetes-Friendly
Sure, you can select an ice cream that’s lighter in calories. But if you also want it to taste great, the search isn’t so easy — until now. The Diabetic Living staff bundled up to brave the frozen foods section in search of ice cream and frozen yogurt (in vanilla and chocolate flavors) that met our diabetes nutritional requirements.

Nutritional Guidelines

Every ice cream tested had to meet these health requirements per 1/2-cup serving:

— 150 calories or less

— 5 g total fat or less

— 3 g saturated fat or less

— 0 g trans fat

— 20 g carb or less (1 carb choice!)

— 100 mg sodium or less

— At least 8 percent DV of calcium
