'When you're on the road to better health, weight loss or simply want to maintain your weight, a little ice cream indulgence without the guilt is often necessary, and a low calorie ice cream is the perfect alternative to calorie laden ice cream to keep you on track.

Mel Watt's mybest Summary

Low calorie ice creams are not particularly in abundance here in the UK, but as far as all the ones I have sampled go, a lot of them are highly advanced in terms of flavour and texture, with most being difficult to set apart from regular ice cream, in my opinion. 

Although low calorie ice cream can be a part of a healthy diet, it is necessary to note that while it’s great a product is low calorie, it’s also important to assess their nutritional values, and whether these suit your requirements.
