Review: Halo Top Ice Cream Giveaway & Neapolitan Ice Cream Pie

by Erin

If you love Neapolitan ice cream then check out this ice cream pie. Simply layer thawed chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry ice cream into a chocolate cookie pie crust and you’ll have an impressive dessert.

Neapolitan Ice Cream Pie 1

Have you heard of the new Halo Top ice cream yet? It is a low calorie ice cream that is non-gmo, 100% natural, high in protein and fiber, and sweetened with organic stevia to lower the sugar content. One pint of Halo Top vanilla bean contains 280 calories, 28g protein and 16g net carbs (compared to 1,080 calories, 16g of protein and 96g net carbs in a pint of Haagen-Dazs vanilla bean ice cream)! Additionally, it is made with premium ingredients such as Belgian chocolate, pure Madagascar vanilla, and real California lemons and strawberries. If that isn’t heavenly enough for you, the pints are also donned with golden tops to look like halos.

Halo Top comes in four flavors: Vanilla Bean, Chocolate, Strawberry and Lemon Cake. I was lucky enough to try all four and the lemon cake was my favorite. It reminded me of the lemon chalet girl scout cookies! But overall I was impressed with how delicious the ice cream tasted, especially being someone who tends to dislike sugar alternatives. The only tricky part is that Halo Top ice cream freezes a little harder because of its lower fat content, which tested my patience a bit as I waited for it to thaw a little into a scoopable consistency.

It was worth the wait because once they did temper I was able to make you a fantastic little ice cream pie using three of the flavors – Neapolitan ice cream pie! Who knew an impressive-looking dessert could be made so easily? And better yet, I am giving away a coupon for a free pint of Halo Top ice cream so you may try it out for yourself.

NEAPOLITAN ICE CREAM PIE

Serves 8-12

Ingredients:

1 chocolate Oreo pie crust

1/2 a pint Halo Top chocolate ice cream

1/2 a pint Halo Top vanilla bean ice cream

1/2 a pint Halo Top strawberry ice cream

Directions:

  1. Allow the chocolate ice cream to soften (I let it sit in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to an hour). Scoop into the pie crust and spread evenly. Place in the freezer until set, about 1 hour. Meanwhile, allow the vanilla bean ice cream to soften in the refrigerator.
  2. Once the chocolate ice cream has frozen, scoop the vanilla ice cream on top and spread evenly. Return to the freezer until set. Meanwhile, allow the strawberry ice cream to soften in the refrigerator.
  3. Again, once the vanilla ice cream has frozen, scoop the strawberry ice cream on top, spread evenly and smooth out the top. Place in freezer until set and ready to serve.

I haven’t heard of this brand before, but it sounds delightful! Either vanilla, chocolate or strawberry would be great, I judge a brand of ice cream by how well they make the basics.

Oops, I forgot to put what flavor I’d like to try most. Probably the strawberry since I’m a big fruit fan.
