Keto fans, meet your new go-to dessert. Enlightened, a healthy ice cream brand with pints, bars, and dairy-free options, announced today a line of keto-friendlypints rolling out in stores now.

Each pint has one gram of net carbs per serving and less than one gram of sugar. They’re made with cream and milk to hit the high-fat, low-carb keto goal and are sweetened with monk fruit and erythritol, zero-calorie natural sweeteners that won’t cause spikes in blood sugar.

As for the flavors, Enlightened launched seven to start: Butter Pecan, Chocolate Glazed Donut, Coffee and Cream, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Mint Chocolate Chunk, Peanut Butter Fudge, and Red Velvet. If you’re wondering the difference between Chocolate PB and PB Fudge, the former is a chocolate base with peanut butter swirl while the latter is a peanut butter base with a fudge swirl.

I tried most of them (oops) at a media preview and can confirm they don’t taste at all like “healthy” ice cream. The cream helps with that, of course, and there’s no hint of aftertaste like you find in some pints. The Coffee and Cream was my favorite, and fans of Enlightened’s Cold Brew flavor or regular coffee ice cream will likely enjoy that one, too.
