Lowest Sugar Häagen-Dazs Ice Creams

Below are the lowest sugar Häagen-Dazs ice creams.

1. Butter Pecan – 22g of Sugar Per 2/3 Cup Serving

Häagen-Dazs butter pecan ice cream consists of “buttery roasted pecans folded into velvety sweet cream”. This is a “classic made fantastic“. Even more fantastic – a 2/3 cup contains 22g of sugar.

2. Pistachio – 23g of Sugar Per 2/3 Cup Serving

Häagen-Dazs pistachio ice cream is made of “lightly roasted California pistachios paired perfectly with velvety sweet cream.” Apparently, you will “go nuts over it.” You will also go nuts over the fact a serving contains 23g of sugar. Interestingly, Ben & Jerry’s pistachio ice cream is their lowest sugar ice cream (see my post on Ben& Jerry’s here for more details: 75 Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Flavors Ranked for Sugar Content). So, it’s good to know in any ice cream parlor that a pistachio flavor is probably a good option in terms of lower sugar content.

3. Coffee – 24g of Sugar Per 2/3 Cup Serving

Häagen-Dazs coffee ice cream is made with Brazilian coffee beans, milk, eggs, cream, and sugar. It is also a lower sugar Häagen-Dazs flavor at 24g of sugar.

Like their vanilla flavor, Häagen-Dazs’ chocolate ice cream is also made from five simple ingredients and contains 25g of sugar in a serving.

6. Cookies and Cream – 25g of Sugar Per 2/3 Cup Serving

Häagen-Dazs cookies & cream ice cream is made from chocolate cookies mixed into creamy vanilla ice cream. Even though it is a bit more of an indulgent flavor it contains 25g of sugar in a serving. This is also my personal favorite flavor.

7. Rum Raisin – 26g of Sugar Per 2/3 Cup Serving

Häagen-Dazs’ rum and raisin ice cream is made of “plump and delicious rum-soaked California raisins mixed into sweetened cream”. A 2/3 cup serving contains 26g of sugar.

8. Vanilla Swiss Almond – 26g of Sugar Per 2/3 Cup Serving

Häagen-Dazs’ Vanilla Swiss Almond ice cream is made of chocolate-coated, roasted almonds stirred through their vanilla ice cream. It is “creamy meets crunchy“, as well as containing 26g of sugar per serving.
