Enjoy Thanksgiving Dinner AND Dessert, Too!

Stuffing? Check.

Mashed potatoes? Check.

Green bean casserole? Check.

Oh! And don’t forget the cranberry sauce, your great aunt’s bread rolls, the gravy and…

It’s hard to imagine Thanksgiving dinner without the dishes our families love. Yet, over the years we’ve tried many ways to make healthier meals that preserve traditional flavors. Whether it’s substituting Greek yogurt for sour cream in the mashed potatoes or using low-sodium broth instead of butter to baste the bird, it seems like there are many ways to make Turkey Day better for you.

But what about after the meal?

Typical Thanksgiving desserts include pies, cakes, pumpkin rolls (and let’s not forget all the sugar in those candied yams that make their way on to our plate during dinner!).

Fortunately, ice cream, frozen yogurt, sorbet and other treats offer a cornucopia of lighter dessert options:

5 Ice Cream Pairings for Pumpkin Pie

Thanksgiving is a time of year when we reflect on what matters most: family, friends, health and happiness. We’d be lying, however, if we didn’t tell you that we daydream about pumpkin pie the weeks (and days and hours and minutes…) leading up to Turkey Day.Pumpkin Pie

Who doesn’t? There’s just something about the creamy richness of a home baked pumpkin pie. It’s delicious on its own, of course, but we prefer it à la mode (hard to believe, we know).

Here are five ice cream flavors to partner with your pumpkin pie this year:

French Vanilla Ice Cream

Pierre’s award-winning French Vanilla Ice Cream, with its rich vanilla flavor, is a wonderful match for spicy pumpkin pie. The fact that we only use the world’s finest vanilla extracts means you’ll be serving up a Thanksgiving dessert of global proportions.

Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

Our Vanilla Bean Ice Cream is anything but, well, vanilla. In fact, in every scoop you see specks of real vanilla beans! Choose this flavor to enjoy a new spin on classic vanilla à la mode.

Yovation® Probiotic Frozen Yogurt

For a better-for-you way to garnish your pumpkin pie, choose Yovation® Probiotic Frozen Yogurt®. Yovation® contains live and active yogurt cultures that provide all the goodness and benefits of yogurt and a superior probiotic culture. With less fat than regular ice cream, Yovation® is a delicious and satisfying treat.

Although there is a tasty Vanilla Yovation® Probiotic Frozen Yogurt, may we suggest placing a perfect portion of Butter Pecan atop your pumpkin pie instead? The fresh-roasted pecans and rich flavor make for a great alternative to vanilla.

Cinnamon Ice Cream

While we’re on the subject of substituting other flavors for vanilla, you might want to spice up you’re à la mode game with Cinnamon Ice Cream – one of our limited edition flavors that, like the holidays, will be gone before you know it. Stock up on a couple of cartons and try it with apple pie, pumpkin roll and spice cake, too.

Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream

Can’t get enough pumpkin? Then our Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream is for you. This flavor tastes so much like the real thing, you could skip baking a pie this year altogether. What a refreshing way to cap off your Thanksgiving celebration!


At Pierre’s Ice Cream Company, we make the most irresistible premium ice creams and frozen treats fresh every day using the highest quality ingredients sourced from all over the world.

How Ice Cream Compares to Other Treats

Hola Fruta Black Cherry LemonLet’s face it: We all want to live healthier. But that doesn’t necessarily mean giving up all of our favorite treats and snacks completely. Moderation is the key. Reading and understanding the nutrition labels of the foods you buy and maintaining portion control are essential to making good choices for you and your family. Have your ice cream – and eat it, too – with these tips for serving sensible portions.

One serving of ice cream is a half cup (4 fl oz). Let’s take a look at the nutritional information for one serving each of two popular flavors:

Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

  • 150 calories
  • 8g total fat
  • 17g total carbohydrates
  • 13g sugars

Chocolate Ice Cream

  • 150 calories
  • 9g total fat
  • 18g total carbohydrates
  • 13g sugars

Let’s see how one serving of our ice cream stacks up against other popular treats. Of course, we’re not saying that one is healthier than the other, but rather, that some treats thought to offer better nutritional value than a serving of ice cream may actually contain more sugar or other ingredients.

Some flavors of Pierre’s ice cream have less sugar than other snack alternatives, and in some cases, fewer calories and less fat. See below for more details.

Ice Cream Versus Blueberry Yogurt

A 4-ounce serving of blueberry yogurt may be lower in calories, but has nearly 30 percent more sugar than a serving of our vanilla bean ice cream! There’s been a lot of talk about the high sugar content of flavored yogurt lately. In fact, The Huffington Post recently reported on 5 yogurt brands that actually contain more sugar than a Twinkie.

Ice Cream Versus Bite-Sized Milk Chocolate Candies

Maybe you’ve tried this diet trick: Eating bite-sized portions of chocolate or some other candy, hoping that the tiny little treats will prevent you from overindulging on larger desserts or snacks. This strategy might satisfy cravings, but it won’t necessarily help with weight management.

One serving – that’s nine small pieces – of popular milk chocolate candies packs 200 calories, 12 grams of total fat, 25 grams of total carbohydrates and 23 grams of sugar.  You can still get your chocolate fix – with Pierre’s Chocolate Ice Cream – while shaving 50 calories, 3 grams of total fat, 7 grams total carbohydrates and 10 grams of sugar off your treat!

Ice Cream Versus Coffeehouse Mocha Blended Beverage

With everyone on the go these days, getting your caffeine through a straw seems like a good idea, but it’s the other ingredients in your favorite coffeehouse drink that add up!

A medium-sized, 16 fl oz mocha blended beverage contains 64 grams of total carbohydrates and 60 grams of sugar! Getting the small size of this drink doesn’t help much: the 12 fl oz serving contains 44 grams of carbohydrates and 41 grams of sugar. You can modify the fat content depending on which milk you ask your barista for, but even the nonfat milk option still has 12 grams of fat in the medium size.

Better yet, try a scoop of Pierre’s better-for-you Cappuccino Yovation® Probiotic Frozen Yogurt.

Ice Cream Versus Granola Yogurt Parfait

This quick fast food granola yogurt parfait does contain some important nurtrients in its one-serving size (that’s slightly larger than a serving of ice cream). But it clocks in at 23 grams of sugar — nearly double the sugar content of one serving of vanilla bean ice cream.

Try making your own parfait; top vanilla bean ice cream with fresh fruit.

Ice Cream Versus Potato Chips

Snacks aren’t always sweet; some of us opt for something salty to munch on instead, from mixed nuts to pretzels to delicious, cruncy potato chips.

You’re definitely avoiding sugar with a serving of these popular potato chips, but are actually consuming more calories and fat than in one serving of vanilla bean or chocolate ice cream!

Ice Cream Versus Granola Bar

Granola bars have become the go-to snacks for everyone from kids after school to people on the go. But, when you unwrap this particular granola bar’s nutritional information, you’ll note that it’s pretty on par with one-serving of ice cream (and actually contains more carbs than ice cream, too). 

Portion Control: How to Have Your Ice Cream, and Eat It, Too

Here are some helpful tips to help you enjoy your ice cream by serving sensible portions.

Portion Control Tips

  • Once you scoop up ice cream into serving dishes, place the container back in the freezer. Keeping it on the table might tempt you to over-indulge.
  • Use smaller serving dishes. Remember, one serving of ice cream is one half-cup.
  • Use a half-cup measuring cup to scoop ice cream instead of a spoon or scoop.

Buy individually wrapped ice cream novelties, affordable and perfectly portioned right out of the box.

And remember, not all ice cream is created equal. The above comparisons were made using Pierre’s Premium Ice Cream flavors; the nutritional value of other brands may vary. Also, remember to consult your physician before making any major changes to your diet and/or fitness program.

Try These Better-for-You Ice Cream Options

“Eating better” has many meanings. For those who need to avoid added sugar or dairy or who are watching their cholesterol, Pierre’s has treats just for you.

Reducing your sugar intake? Then try our Slender® No Sugar Added Reduced Fat Ice Cream, sweetened with Splenda® Brand Sweetener.

Counting calories? Wait ‘til you try our Smooth Churned Light Ice Cream, which has 30 percent fewer calories than regular ice cream.

Watching cholesterol, and want something different? Say “hello” to ¡Hola Fruta!® Pure Fruit Sherbet. Naturally low in fat and cholesterol, each pint is made from real fruit purees.

Can’t do lactose? We have a Lactose Free Vanilla Ice Cream and Lactose Free Chocolate Ice Cream just for you!

Need dairy free? Try naturally fat- and cholesterol-free Sorbet. This refreshing alternative comes in fruit flavors, like raspberry, lemon and passion fruit, as well as in chocolate. That’s right – a dairy free way to satisfy your chocolate craving! Or try refreshing ¡Hola Fruta!® Fruit Bars.

Make Mardi Gras “Low Fat” Tuesday This Year

Pierre's Better For You Treats for Low Fat TuesdayHave you bounced back from indulging over the holidays? If so, be warned: Mardi Gras is right around the corner on March 4, and with it comes parties and high-calorie foods like King Cake and Pączkis which help the event live up to its translation of “Fat Tuesday”.

Join Pierre’s as we reclaim Mardi Gras as “Low Fat Tuesday”, a fun, flavorable celebration of making better choices. After all, living well is hard work, and it’s okay to reward yourself with irresistible ice creams and frozen treats … this time, only better for you.

Pierre’s Mardi Gras King Cake Recipe

Try our cool take on a staple Mardi Gras dessert to celebrate Low Fat Tuesday with your family.

The classic Louisiana-style King Cake recipe calls for a bread-like dough stuffed with a nut filling and topped with white icing and colored sugar. For our better‐for‐you Pierre’s Ice Cream King Cake, choose one or more flavors of Smooth Churned Light Ice Cream, Slender® No Sugar Added Reduced Fat Ice Cream or Yovation® Probiotic Frozen Yogurt.

For a taste that’s similar to a traditional King Cake, try using the Vanilla or Butter Pecan version of any of those varieties – or get creative and go for something different, like Waffle Cone Sundae. Better, yet, add all three flavors into the mix!

Ingredients:

  • Pierre’s Smooth Churned Light Ice Cream or Slender® No Sugar Added Reduced Fat Ice Cream or Pierre’s Yovation Probiotic Frozen Yogurt (your favorite flavors)
  • Dried fruit, nuts

First, remove the ice cream from the freezer and let soften for about 5‐10 minutes at room temperature. Don’t thaw for too long, or the ice cream will crystallize when refrozen. Coat the inside of a Bundt cake pan or mold with non‐stick cooking spray, or line with plastic wrap. Scoop the ice cream into the pan. If you are using more than one ice cream flavor, add a layer of each until the pan is full. Place the pan in the freezer 30‐60 minutes to harden.

Remove the pan from the freezer. Set upside down on a serving dish for a few minutes … long enough so the cake slides out easily. You can also use a knife or rubber spatula around the edges. You can “frost” the cake with nonfat or light whipped topping, slice as is or decorate with chopped nuts and dried fruit.

Just for fun: In traditional King Cake, the most famous ingredient is a small plastic figure of a baby. The person who gets the slice with the baby in it is said to receive good luck … although some say it means that the person will have to make a King Cake for next year’s Mardi Gras party! If you choose to go all out, place the baby figurine – available at most craft stores – somewhere among the layers of ice cream.

Treat Yourself to Better Choices

Yovation Black Cherries  Chocolate ChunksWhether or not you made a resolution to eat better this year, Pierre’s offers many delicious options for you and your family to enjoy a delicious frozen treat without feeling guilty. After all, nothing should get in the way of enjoying your favorite ice cream! Here are some better-for-you tips that may make it easier …

Fresh Toppings:

Everyone enjoys a hot fudge sundae every now and then, but why not lighten your dish up with fresh fruits like bananas, coconut or strawberries. Don’t forget to add some crunch with unsalted raw almonds, pecans or walnuts.

There’s something for everyone:

Pierre’s offers lighter, reduced fat, fat free and no sugar added frozen treat options in a variety of flavors … so many, in fact, the fun part is deciding which Pierre’s item is your favorite.
