Review: Whey Hey Ice Cream.

I love ice-cream. It is one of my guilty pleasures in life. It’s not often I indulge unless it’s a homemade variety such as my frozen yoghurt. So when they guys at Whey Hey offered to send me some to try, I wasn’t going to say No.

Now this ice-cream isn’t any old ice-cream, it contains Whey protein isolate, which makes it higher in protein content. Containing 15 g/100g compared to a standard ice-cream at 3g/100g it certainly packs a protein punch. It is also sugar free, instead containing Xylitol. It’s 123 kcals per individual serving.

So the verdict?

It tastes great, really good. The chocolate is amazing, even my husband agreed it was super-good. I like the fact it is sugar free and so this could be a good option for people with diabetes who want to enjoy a treat. At 3.2 g fat per 100g it is pretty low in fat and calories so also a good option for people wanting to enjoy ice-cream but also wanting to watch their weight.

In my mind ice-cream is one of those foods to be enjoyed as a treat and I think the danger here could be that people see the lower fat, sugar and calories in the product as a green light to go ahead and eat it more often.  If you want to eat ice-cream on a daily basis try out my banana ice-cream, with just one ingredient…banana!

I was sent this product to review, all views are my own and you can read my disclosure here.
