Spotted: Trader Joe's Light Ice Cream With a Whopping 20 Grams of Protein Per Pint
Sure, maybe you've picked up a pint of Swell from Trader Joe's, but did you know that TJ's is officially selling its own branded high-protein "light" ice cream? News broke back in March about two pints with less fat, fewer calories, and higher protein, and this is the first time we're seeing them in the wild (aka, in TJ's freezers).
The two flavors are Joe-Joe's Cookies & Cream Light Ice Cream and Chocolate Peanut Butter Light Ice Cream, and they feature milk protein concentrate, according to the company website. Per pint, Cookies & Cream has 20 grams of protein, 310 calories, and seven grams of fat, and you'll find 23 grams of protein, 370 calories, and 12 grams of fat in a pint of Chocolate Peanut Butter. They're sweetened with stevia, cane sugar, and monk fruit extract and contain zero sugar alcohols. Instagram user @thesnacksoflife found these in Irvine, CA, so hopefully they've popped up at your local store, too. Each pint costs just $3. Heading to TJ's yet?
