Ice cream is so good, but not so good for you. It’s loaded with sugar and fat, so it’s not exactly something we should be eating everyday. People get excited when they see low-fat ice cream in the freezer aisle, but they don’t realize that there’s a tradeoff going on with the ingredients.
When fat is reduced in ice cream, it must be replaced by something else to enhance the flavor. In the case of ice cream, the replacement tends to be artificial sweeteners or extra sugar.
