9 ice cream treats WW members are loving right now

Who says frozen desserts can’t be SmartPoints®-friendly? Scoop up one of these cool selections from the supermarket freezer case—or make your own!

We’re not sure who needs to hear this, but building healthy habits doesn’t have to mean cutting ice cream out of your diet. At WW, we’re all about the frozen treats! Plenty of goodies in the grocery-store freezer case happen to be SmartPoints®-friendly, so you can have something cool and satisfying while staying on track. Check out 2020’s frosty favorites below, according to WW members, or try making one of our delicious DIY frozen desserts.

Enlightened Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

Chocolate and peanut butter: Name a more iconic duo. In this Enlightened bar, the two ingredients swirl together to create a cool, rich-tasting treat for just 3 SmartPoints each (Green, Blue, Purple). WW members tracked its stick-to-the-roof-of-your-mouth goodness 142,043 times in the first half of 2020. 

Yasso Chocolate Fudge Frozen Greek Yogurt Bars

Never underestimate the power of Greek yogurt. In addition to working wonders in Two-ingredient dough, the creamy dairy staple also forms the foundation of this member-fave pop. The result: rich chocolatey taste with a nice touch of tartness for 3 SmartPoints each across myWW+™ colors.

WW Giant Chocolate Fudge Ice Cream Bar 

You can’t go wrong with a classic! There’s a reason this tried-and-true chocolate fudge bar was tracked by WW members 732,377 times between January and July 2020. With just 4 SmartPoints value per serving (Green, Blue, Purple), it totally hits the sweet spot. 

Popsicle Fudgsicle Low-Fat Pops

Don’t let the low-fat distinction throw you. These pops taste as rich as a “regular” dessert! WW members can vouch for that: They tracked this 3 SmartPoints-value (Green, Blue, Purple) treat over 17,337 times between January and June 2020. 

Halo Top Pops Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Bars 

This pop takes the best part of cookie making—nibbling the dough!—and turns it into a yummy frozen dessert. What’s more, it only has 2 SmartPoints value across myWW+ colors. That’s probably why members went for this Halo Top treat 60,081 times in the first half of 2020! 

WW Snack-Size Salted Caramel Ice Cream Bar

How to make caramel even more delicious? Add a contrasting dash of salt, of course! While this snack-size treat—4 SmartPoints value on Green, Blue, and Purple—is a little smaller than a typical ice cream pop, its sweet-savory duality definitely satisfies. 

Skinny Cow Dynamic Duo Vanilla & Chocolate Sandwich 

The beauty here is getting two treats in one: creamy vanilla ice cream bookended by a pair of perfectly tender cookies. Amazingly, this lightened-up take on the classic ice cream sandwich is just 6 SmartPoints value on Green, Blue, and Purple. 

Breyers Delights Creamy Chocolate Ice Cream 

When you want to kick it old school, Breyer’s Delights Creamy Chocolate Ice Cream delivers. Made with real cream and cocoa, a ½ cup serving is just 2 SmartPoints (Green, Blue, Purple). And the whole pint is only 10 SmartPoints, just sayin’. 

Edy's Slow Churned Fudge Tracks Ice Cream

In this much-loved dessert, tracked more than 214,100 times in 2019’s summer months alone, light vanilla ice cream serves as the base for mini peanut butter cups and smooth ribbons of fudge. A triply delicious treat! SmartPoints tally: 6 per ½ cup scoop (Green, Blue, Purple).
