Have you found the perfect low carb ice cream? Brands such as CarbSmart from Breyer's are pretty good – and I also enjoy the Halo Top and Arctic Zero frozen desserts. There are also some great recipes around! I've previously shared my amazing Mint Chocolate Ice Cream and I even have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to Low Carb Ice Cream and Popsicle recipes! Or how about an ice cream mix? This chocolate ice cream mix from LC Foods or this soft serve ice cream mix from Dixie USA are definitely worth trying!
But if you want to make your ice cream extra special you need toppings. Sprinkles, fruit, chocolate, candy, sauces – here are all the ideas you'll ever need!
