Thankfully I am not much of an ice cream eater. I never even looked in the supermarket for a diabetic semi friendly brand! But there are times where I would like just a little. Was I ever surprised to find out that YES-there are plenty of Brands who now put out not only reduced sugar ice cream but also sugar free ice cream. Of course when I told one of my friends whose husband is diabetic-she rattled them right off!! But just in case you are like me and did not really even think that you would ever taste that tasty concoction again---------Just remember—a small scoop (approx ½ cup) and if you happen to be like me where milk (full, skim or anything inbetween) raises your blood sugar—do not indulge too often and certainly not until your blood sugar is under control! I even found a chocolate syrup and a caramel syrup that is sugar free (and a marshmallow fluff)-but that is for another post! I found a site who listed all the different brands and whether they were low carb, sugar free etc. I suggest you go check this list out. Unfortunately the ones that are listed for diabetics are mostly foreign brands which can not be found in the United States that I am aware of (yes I googled every one of those!)

The brands I know you can probably find in your local supermarket but are generally not totally sugar free are:
Just remember to read the labels carefully!! ALWAYS watch those carb counts and in this case-sugar count as well! It would not hurt to keep an eye on the calorie count and the PORTION size as well!!!
