A pint of ice cream contains four servings, presumably meant to be eaten by four different people or on four separate occasions. But sometimes it feels absolutely necessary to combine those four servings into one portion and eat the whole thing at once. There’s something ridiculously satisfying about scooping a spoon into a fresh container until you reach the cardboard end. Except, of course, that involves ingesting over a thousand calories and a hunk of sugar in a matter of minutes.
If there’s a day you’re craving the lion’s share of something cold and creamy, but you’re hoping to skip the 1,160 calories and 56 grams of fat in a carton of Ben & Jerry’s Phish Food, there are ice cream alternatives that just might fit the bill. Below, are several pints that contain 400 calories or less, perfect for the times this very specific craving strikes. While these won’t replace your favorite freezer pints, they will come in handy when quantity trumps quality.
