Let’s get real, sugar-free products have a history of being really horrible. More often than not, the sugar is replaced with some kind of lab-concocted sweetener that leaves a strange, almost chemical taste in the mouth. Fortunately, for those of us looking to lower our sugar intake, Rebel Ice Cream does not suffer that negative. It actually tastes good, like real ice cream should.
Rebel ice cream is made with full-fat cream, unlike many of its healthy competitors. While net carbs remain low, 4-8 grams per serving, the fat content can range from 50-70 grams. Obviously, you can’t indulge every day, but in moderation, this ice cream is a dream-come-true for cravers that need that occasional scoop.
Sweetened with erythritol, a natural sugar found in monk fruit and chicory root, Rebel ice cream won’t raise your blood sugar or insulin. Technically, erythritol is an alcohol sugar that is easily metabolized by your body, unlike the corn starch, corn fiber, and chemicals often found in other brands.
So, how does it fair in taste? We sampled several flavors, including; Birthday Cake, Triple Chocolate, Mint Chip and Butter Pecan. The comment heard most often by our tasters was, “This tastes like regular ice cream.” What more could you ask for?
One of our tasters is on a low-sugar diet, with a goal of consuming less than 25 grams of sugar per day. As Rebel ice cream ranges from 0-2 grams of sugar per pint, guiltlessly having two or three servings of ice cream in a week is possible. Again, though, you have to keep an eye on the fat content.
We’re looking forward to sampling more flavors!
