Just because one is adhering to a keto lifestyle, doesn’t mean they have to give up on sweets — at least that’s what Enlightened is trying to say.

The company unveiled two new keto flavors to its family of frozen desserts — caramel dark chocolate peanut and caramel chocolate double dough.

“We love to push the boundaries of flavors while maintaining sound nutrition,” Enlightened CEO and founder Michael Shoretz said. “We're excited to give fans two uniquely decadent ice creams that just happen to be ultra-low sugar and keto-friendly.”

Featuring 1 g of net carbs and less than 1 g of sugar, the caramel dark chocolate peanut flavor contains caramel ice cream that has been rolled in crushed peanuts and dipped into keto-friendly chocolate, the company said.

On the other hand, caramel chocolate double dough features swirls of caramel and chocolate ice cream, as well as brownie bites and chocolate chip cookie dough.

Shoppers can find Enlightened’s caramel dark chocolate peanut online and on shelves at such retailers as Foodtown, Giant Eagle, H-E-B, Sprouts and others. The caramel chocolate double dough will hit shelves in March.
