Real Good Foods Ice Cream Review
Our Keto Ice Cream review found NONE of the low-carb ice creams you find in the store to be truly satisfying... Usually, you have to "chip away" at a hard mixture...
The first thing I noticed was that the highest carb count per serving on these is 6. On most of the competing products that number is around their lowest carb count that you can find in the store! Real Good Foods lowest carb count is 4 so we think that is awesome.
We wanted this to be a real-time experience. So we’re "talking" to you as we open each one!
Tanzanian Vanilla Ice Cream
Ingredients: Milk, Cream, Allulose (a sweetener we really like - a rare sugar with no impact on blood glucose), Egg Yolk, Inulin (a great prebiotic fiber), Vanilla extract, Locust Bean Gum (probably to bind the ingredients together), Sea salt, and Stevia (another really great sweetener).
So here we’ve got 3 servings (2/3c) per container. In one serving (⅔ cup) there are 180 calories, 15g total fat, 80mg cholesterol, 90mg sodium, 19g total carbs. But your net carbs... 1g fiber, 6g sugar, and 4g protein. So you really want to be looking at sugar which would come from the lactose in the milk. Nothing alarming in these ingredients, just know that this total carb number includes allulose in the count.
Serving size - 3 servings… when Jeremy eats one of these he’ll eat just a ¼ of the pint, but the serving sizes Real Good Foods puts on their containers is definitely more realistic than the serving sizes you'd typically find on the other low-carb ice creams out there.
Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
Ingredients: Milk, Cream, Allulose, Stracciatella (Sugar free chocolate chips [unsweetened chocolate; erythritol, inulin, dietary fibre (resistant dextrin), cocoa butter, soy lecithin, natural flavor(s); steviol glycosides (stevia extract) sweetener; whole milk powder; natural vanilla extract] Coconut Oil), Egg yolk, Inulin, Locust Bean, Mint Oil, Stevia.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
Jeremy’s favorite is peanut butter chocolate chip ice cream, so that’s the second one he chose to review.
Per serving there’s only 4g of Sugars (again coming from the milk lactose) in Real Good Foods’ Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip ice cream. And this one has the most ingredients and the most carbs of all of the ones we’re testing out right now.
Ingredients: Milk, Cream, Allulose, Coffee Extract, Stracciatella (Sugar free chocolate chips [unsweetened chocolate; erythritol, inulin, dietary fibre (resistant dextrin), cocoa butter, soy lecithin, natural flavor(s); steviol glycosides (stevia extract) sweetener; whole milk powder; natural vanilla extract] Coconut Oil), Egg yolk, Cocoa Powder, Inulin, Locust Bean Gum, Stevia.
Comparing these to Rebel, Enlighten, Halo Top, or one of the other keto ice creams out in the market right now…which we've tasted the greater majority of them. The competitors' ice creams all have an aftertaste that lasts within the first 3-4 bites you take until you get used to it…not very appetizing. None of the Real Good Foods Ice Creams have an aftertaste which is one of the reasons why we're loving it so much.
RGF ice creams melt just like regular ice cream would. The competitors can be set out of the freezer for QUITE a while and will still not get soft or turn into that nice melty texture. They’re more… "icy" if you will. So Real Good Foods ice creams are great for those of you out there that really love certain textures as we do.
These products do cost a little more than what you find out on the freezer shelves right now, but it's understandable. Real Good Foods uses better quality ingredients that will naturally cost more.
Think about this: if you go out to one of the ice cream shops or parlors with your family or a friend you’d be spending $5-6 per person. Yea that's expensive for just one trip, but we're talking about one of these pints lasting you 3-4 servings! Better ingredients, better quality, and better taste. All worth the extra dollar!
We WANT you to enjoy the keto sweets you consume (otherwise why eat them?), but we still encourage you to eat keto desserts in moderation. Too much of any keto desserts (even all our awesome sweets recipes you can find HERE ) will throw off your efforts for better health, improved weight, and stamina (or whatever your personal keto goals are).
