I have partnered with The Brand Connection and Allulose to bring you this post, all opinions are my own.
As I get older, my priorities are different and more health challenges have come up. A year ago I was told if I didn’t change things I was going to be diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and frankly, that scared me into really taking charge of my health. My father has Type 2 and I had Gestational Diabetes with my third and last pregnancy, which gives me a higher chance of being diagnosed with it, so I really am trying to avoid it. But that means that I really had to change a lot of things. And I definitely missed my sweet treats. So I’ve had to either make my own or buy treats that now fit into my healthier life. I’ve discovered new sweetener, DOLCIA PRIMA® Allulose, that’s not artificial, has no aftertaste and has 90% less calories than regular sugar. Who wouldn’t be into that?
As I’ve mentioned a lot, my 14 year old son has Type 1 Diabetes and DOLCIA PRIMA Allulose is perfect for him because it doesn’t increase blood glucose or insulin levels, making it a healthy, low-calorie alternative to use in place of sugar by healthy people or individuals with type 2 diabetes.

Meet Sweetie Ice Cream – Reduced Sugar, low fat and lower carb
Sweetie® is a low-fat ice cream with reduced sugar containing less than 2 grams of fat, and 7 grams or less of sugar per ½ cup serving. The taste is delicious and this is my new nightly treat! It works out to be 3 WW Smartpoints for 1/2 cup. And if you taste it, you’ll swear that it’s regular ice cream! It has the fraction of the calories of sugar and the clean sweet taste of ice cream.
My husband was also impressed with the taste and really thought it was regular ice cream. I quickly let him know that it was MY ice cream!
All Sweetie products contain at least 5 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber. The protein source for Sweetie® is milk protein concentrate, while the fiber source is soluble corn fiber.
Flavors available are Vanilla, Chocolate, Salted Caramel, Mango Passionfruit, Coffee and Blueberries ‘n’ Cream. My favorites are the Salted Caramel and the Blueberries ‘n Cream. My son claimed the chocolate and as a parent of a child with Type 1 Diabetes, I really appreciated how it didn’t spike his blood sugar.
Sweetie Ice Cream is served at a number of stores and creameries throughout Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. It can also be purchased online and delivered to your doorstep. Learn more about Sweetie ice cream here –www.SweetieIceCream.com
