Can I Eat Ben Jerry's Cookie Dough Ice Cream On Slimming World?
Everyone loves a Ben and Jerry's, but with all the fat and sugar, this tasty ice cream can put you back a few syns by the time you've had a couple of scoops.
Ben and Jerry's cookie dough ice cream has 11.5 syns per 100ml due to it being high-calorie ice cream, this means you would need to save most of your syns for that day to have a good Netflix & chill'd ice cream pig out at the end of your day.
Below we will cover how many syns various Ben & Jerry's ice creams have, some other low syn light ice cream to try if your looking for some lower syn alternatives and a low syn slimming world friendly light ice cream recipe you can make right at home!
Do Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Have a Lot Of Syns?
As we mentioned above, Ben & Jerrys are packed full of fat and sugar which does make them high syn ice cream, and with 100ml of the cookie dough flavour having 11.5 syns, that's nearly your whole daily syn allowance just for 100ml of it.
Ben & Jerry's have released a light ice cream called Moophoria however and that range is lower in syns, with the cookie dough flavour coming in at 7 syns for 100ml, allowing you to have up to 200ml of it if you save all of your syns.
We will list all the Ben & Jerry flavours below along with their syns to give you an idea of which ice cream flavours from the brand are lowest in syns.
Ben & Jerry’s Son of a Wich, Mini Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches (30ml each) – 4 syns.
Ben & Jerry’s Moophoria Poppin’ Popcorn 100ml - 5.5 syns.
