All Enlightened products are made with less sugar, less fat, and fewer calories than traditional desserts, but each product line fits best with different dietary needs and goals.
If you’re looking for a low calorie option without a lot of sugar, the low calorie Enlightened flavors and Fruit Infusions are great choices. If your goal is limiting carbs and sugar as much as possible, our keto ice cream flavors, cheesecakes, and Dough Bites are perfect for you. For a low-sugar, low-calorie option made without dairy, try our dairy-free line.
If you’re just looking for a delicious treat, you’re in luck—anything you choose will fit the bill! Plus, all of our ice cream collections are available in both pints and bars, so you can decide whether you’re in the mood for a spoon or a stick.
You can find Enlightened products in grocery stores nationwide! To see the stores nearest to you, search our store locator using your zip code. You can also order all of our products for delivery (with free shipping!) directly from our website.
We work super hard all year long to get your favorite stores to make room for us on their shelves, and you can help us get there: We encourage you to submit a product request form to your store to let them know which flavors you’d like to see on shelves—if they know you want it, they’ll want to carry it! Many grocery stores also have their own product request forms on their website, so you may be able to submit a request with your favorite directly.
Nutrition facts and a list of ingredients are available on the product page for each individual flavor.

...I have diabetes?
We’ve heard from lots of people with diabetes who enjoy our desserts as an option lower in net carbs and sugar than traditional options. As low GI (glycemic index) foods, Enlightened products don't cause the blood sugar spikes and crashes that are common with products in the ice cream aisle. Our keto ice cream pints and bars are our lowest-sugar options—each flavor contains 1g of sugar or less per serving!
...I’m lactose intolerant?
Looking to avoid dairy? Our dairy-free ice cream pints and bars are a great option. Fruit Infusions are also made without dairy, with the exception of Coconut + Immunity.
...I can’t eat foods containing gluten?
Many Enlightened ice cream flavors, including all of our keto ice cream flavors, are gluten-free! You can find this information listed on the product page for each individual flavor. Dough Bites and Fruit Infusions are also gluten-free. Our cheesecakes are made in a facility that processes wheat, but do not contain wheat-based ingredients.
...I can’t eat foods containing soy?
Many Enlightened flavors are made without soy, and the vegetable glycerin we use is soy-free. You can find a full list of ingredients on the product page for each flavor.
...I’m allergic to peanuts/tree nuts?
Many Enlightened flavors are made without peanuts or tree nuts as ingredients, but all are processed in facilities that also process peanuts and tree nuts. Equipment is always cleaned between production runs, but we cannot guarantee the absence of any residue.
Enlightened ice cream is sweetened with monk fruit and erythritol, which are all-natural, zero-carb sweeteners. You can read more about these ingredients on our blog.
Some carbs are broken down completely and absorbed by your body, while other carbs (like fiber and sugar alcohols) are only partially broken down and absorbed. We highlight the net carbs that remain after subtracting fiber and sugar alcohols because these are the only carbs that affect blood sugar. Here’s a quick net carb equation you can use with any nutrition label you encounter: Total Carbohydrates - Dietary Fiber - Sugar Alcohols = Net Carbs.
Sugar causes ice cream to melt more quickly, and since ours is lower in sugar, it doesn’t melt as quickly as traditional ice cream. We are always working on ways around this for the best experience for eager ice cream eaters (like us!). But the best things in life are worth waiting for, including Enlightened ice cream! For maximum deliciousness and the creamiest possible texture, we recommend letting your pint sit out for 5-10 minutes before digging in. (Feeling impatient? You can also scoop your ice cream into a bowl and give it a few seconds in the microwave.)
As much as we love each flavor we create, sometimes we have to make changes to the lineup we offer to make room for what's new. While flavors that have gone into retirement won't be listed on our Store Locator, they may still appear in stores for a limited time, so be sure to stock up if you spot them!

Like other Enlightened ice cream products, the Keto Collection is sweetened using monk fruit and erythritol, two natural, zero-carb sweeteners that won’t spike blood sugar. In addition, the Keto Collection contains 1g of sugar or less per serving and is made with real cream. Each flavor contains just 1g net carbs per serving!
The keto diet is focused on reducing carbs (typically to a maximum of 20 net carbs daily) and eating a diet high in fat and moderate in protein. Since fats contain more than twice as many calories per gram as proteins and carbohydrates, any product that’s higher in fat is likely to be higher in calories. Compared to traditional ice creams, though, the Keto Collection still contains less fat and fewer calories per serving.
Unlike some fibers such as isomaltooligosaccharides (often labeled as prebiotic fiber or tapioca fiber), soluble corn fiber is considered a true fiber by the FDA. According to the latest peer-reviewed data, soluble corn fiber is a great option for adding fiber to keto and low-carb diets.
In other fruit bars, sugar is often the star ingredient—sometimes as much as 20g per bar! Fruit bars which claim “no sugar added” often replace the sugar with artificial sweeteners like acesulfame potassium. Enlightened Fruit Infusions are naturally sweetened with 70-80% less sugar (regular fruit bars average 16g sugar per serving; Enlightened Fruit Infusions contain 3-5g sugar per serving) and are infused with adaptogens to keep you feeling your best.
With the exception of Coconut + Immunity, which contains milk, all Fruit Infusions flavors are vegan.
Yes, all Fruit Infusions flavors are gluten-free!
The first ingredient is fruit, so mostly fruit! We also use a couple of different natural sweeteners, monk fruit and tapioca syrup. (You may also know monk fruit from Enlightened ice cream pints and bars!)
Depending on the flavor, one fruit bar contains 6-11g net carbs. To find the amount of net carbs in a Fruit Infusions bar, you can subtract the grams of dietary fiber and vegetable glycerin from the total grams of carbohydrates. Full nutrition facts for each flavor are available on the product page for that flavor.
An adaptogen is any plant or herb that has positive regulating effects on the body. You may recognize many of the adaptogens in Fruit Infusions from your home kitchen!
One cheesecake contains 2g net carbs. To find the amount of net carbs in one of our cheesecakes, you can subtract the grams of dietary fiber, erythritol, and allulose from the total grams of carbohydrates.
Our cheesecakes are made in a facility that processes wheat, but do not contain any wheat-based ingredients.
Yes! Our cheesecakes have Tablet-K kosher certification.
