From good old Magnums to Rowntree lollies, if you are after something sweet, we've got your covered low syn ice cream list.
Magnums ice cream bars vary in syns according to flavours but have around 12 syns a bar, which is still 3 syns under your daily syn allowance. Most of the syns in these come from their cream which is high in fat and sugar.
One of their lowest syn bars is their white chocolate ice cream which only has 10.5 syns in a bar.
Despite magnum being high in syns, you can still enjoy their ice cream tubs by serving a smaller portion than the standard 100ml.
Most have between 17-18 syns, if you struggle for portion control then we would suggest trying their bars.
Rocket lollies only have two syns per one making them a great low syn alternative to ice cream for a cold sweet treat.
You could have up to 7 a day before reaching your daily syn allowance!
Magnum minis are a great choice for slimming world users if you are looking for low syn ice cream, they have half the amount of syns as a regular magnum and come to half of your daily syn allowance.
Del Monte ice lollies are low in syns, having just 3.5 syns a lolly since they are mainly made from fruit juice, and don't have the fat and calories of a standard vanilla ice cream.
If you're looking for a low syn version of magnum ice creams then Halo Top ice lollies could be a good choice. These ice cream lollies don't go above 4.5 syns for both their ice cream and fruit lollies range.
