Enlightened Ice Cream and Crisps: Top 10 Picks Expo West #4

ENLIGHTENED: The Good-For-You Ice Cream

Enlightened front label

Sea Salt Caramel Ice Cream. Sounds like something that could be daily dessert? How about a high-fiber, high-protein, low-fat, low-sugar dessert? With ENLIGHTENED Ice Cream, you bet!

If you’re not a HUGE salted caramel fan like I am, you can still enjoy ENLIGHTENED with flavors like peanut butter, coffee or mint fudge swirl. And enjoy you will because these ice cream bars have a smooth, creamy rich texture that is very satisfying. When I met the creator of ENLIGHTENED and his mom at their ExpoWest booth, I learned how this product has undergone so many trials and tweaking to get the taste, mouthfeel and nutrition facts that they are proud of.

Imagine an ice cream bar with 70-80 Calories, 7-8 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber, and only 3-5 grams of sugar! Actually you don’t have to! Someone already did the work of imagining and making this ice cream that makes you feel as good as it tastes. Thank you ENLIGHTENED!

Spill the Beans!

ENLIGHTENED’s newest product is their Crisps which are broad beans (also known as Fava Beans) that are roasted in a high-oleic sunflower oil, sprinkled with sea salt and then seasoned with incredible flavors like wasabi or sriracha. Fava beans are naturally high in fiber and protein and less than a teaspoon of oil is used per serving of Crisps.

Sunflower oil is usually high in polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acids which most people get too much of and are trying to avoid to have a more favorable omega 6:3 ratio. High-oleic sunflower oil is just what it sounds like—high in oleic acid which is a monounsaturated omega-9 fat and the same oleic acid that is present in olive oil and avocado. Oleic acid may lower LDL and raise HDL cholesterol.

These Crisps are super flavorful (just give the wasabi a try!) and they also can fit into most special diets. They are certified vegan, gluten free, non-GMO Project verified and kosher. This is really the Good-For-You Crisp.
