You never know what you're going to get when you reach for a diet-friendly ice cream, but this one was so rich and full-flavored, at least one tester thought we were pulling a fast one: "No way this is low-fat."

Just like regular Greek yogurt, these dessert bars contain healthy bacteria to aid digestion and boost your immune system, plus 5 grams of filling protein (as much as an ounce of turkey). Our testers loved the "super-creamy, really peachy" flavor.Courtesy of ManufacturerCadbury Caramello Ice Cream Bars

If you're looking for something truly light, Ben and Jerry aren't your dudes. But at least you get healthy bacteria and protein in their new Greek yogurt varieties. And wow, are they good: "Like Pinkberry fro-yo on crack," said one tester. "Tart, sweet, and creamy."
