For our Rebel Ice Cream review, we chose to try out Butter Pecan, Peanut Butter Fudge and Cookie Dough from Publix. They were about $6 and were right beside Enlightened and Halo Top.

There is one major difference between Rebel and low-calorie ice cream brands though.

What is Rebel Ice Cream?

Rebel Ice Cream is keto and so good! We are obsessed with the cookie dough! It’s so creamy and has 0 grams of sugar. Instead it uses erythritol to sweeten flavors. For a no-sugar, 2-5 carb experience, it’s the best treat on a low carb diet!

Quick Keto Summary

If you’re unfamiliar with keto, you basically eat 60-80% fat, 15-30% proteins, and very few carbs. This can put your body into ketosis which in normal terms just means you’re using fat instead of glucose (sugar) for energy. People following a keto-diet also typically follow intermittent fasting in some way.

A serving of Rebel Ice cream is between 150-200 calories and contains 14 grams of fat, 2-3 grams of protein, and 10-14 grams of carbohydrates depending on the flavor. 

What We Liked & Disliked

We love that Rebel Ice Cream is super convenient and low carb. The Peanut Butter Fudge and Cookie Dough were also really tasty and something we’d look forward to eating.

With that said, we don’t like that a pint can be around 800 calories! You could argue that calories aren’t as important as carbs on a keto diet, but these calories are still just empty of nutrition. It would be better to find healthy fats and whole foods even on the keto diet.

We also don’t like how much erythritol it contains. This sweetener can cause digestion issues. 

With that said, we’ll still enjoy it every now and then! 

Is Rebel Ice Cream Keto Friendly?

Yes, Rebel Ice Cream is keto-friendly at 1-2 net carbs per serving. It contains high amounts of fats with moderate protein and low carbs.

Are there other Keto Friendly Ice Cream Brands?

Yes! We love Enlightened’s keto ice cream line as well!

What are the Ingredients in Rebel Ice Cream?

While the ingredients in Rebel Ice Cream may vary by flavor, here’s Cookie Dough flavor as an example:

Cream, Water, Cookie Dough (Almond Flour, Erythritol, Palm Oil, Water, Natural Flavors, Baking Soda, Salt, Sunflower Lecithin), Chocolate (Coconut Oil, Cocoa, Erythritol, Sunflower Lecithin, Salt, Dutch Cocoa, Natural Vanilla Flavor, Monk Fruit) Erythritol, Egg Yolks, Vegetable Glycerin, Chicory Root Fiber, Milk Protein Isolate, Vanilla Extract, Peruvian Carob Gum, Guar Gum, Monk Fruit. Contains: milk, egg, almonds, coconut

How Many Carbs Are in Rebel Ice Cream?

Depending on the flavor, a serving of Rebel Ice Cream contains 1-2 net carbs. A pint of this keto ice cream would be between 4-8 net carbs.

Halo Top Ice Cream Flavors Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Halo Top vs Rebel Ice Cream Review

As you know, we love our low-calorie Halo Top ice cream. With that said, it has 14-16 grams of carbohydrates per serving compared to Rebel’s 1-2! While Rebel Ice Cream is higher in calories, if you’re tracking carbs, this brand wins hands down.

Differences

The texture of Rebel Ice Cream is creamier than Halo Top, and unlike Halo Top it doesn’t have to be stirred to make it creamy.

Obviously, if you’re tracking calories Halo Top will be the winner, and if you’re looking for a keto ice cream, Rebel wins!

Similarities

Both brands do use added sweeteners. They also both require time to soften up – either 15-30 minutes sitting out or about 30 seconds in the microwave.

Would We Buy It Again After Our Taste Test?

Absolutely!! Since we try to watch our carbs and calories, we’re planning on keeping it only as a treat. 

While the net carbs are super low, the pints can be around 800 calories! So we’ll stick to a serving (or two!) as well.

Another reason we’ll only eat it in moderation is because of the erythritol in it. This sweetener can be really tough on your digestion so if you struggle with digestion or gut issues, research the effects of erythritol as well!

Have you tried Rebel or another Keto Ice Cream? What did you think?

    1. It could also be the chicory, which is rather well known for doing this. Erithritol is usually one of the better tolerated sugar alcohols.

  1. Great review! I don’t think it’s for me because I’m not keto but it does sound like a good option if you are. Seems like too many calories to me–might as well eat the real thing! I really like the Chilly Cow ice cream and adore the Yasso yogurt bars.

  2. Love your honest review! My favorite ice cream flavor is also cookie dough, and the picture of it here looks amazing! Going to keep my eye out for this brand!

  3. I have tried my first dish of the chocolate flavor and I am not impressed. It is creamy, when you compare it with the other brands of low carb ice cream. For the price, however I really don’t think it is worth it.

  4. Hello I am new with Rebel and so far I really love it but my one concern is with these people licking containers of ice cream and putting it back into the freezer I have noticed the past several times that I have bought Rebel there is no protection on the containers you just The lid off and there is the ice cream is there someway that you could make it more secure so nobody can tamper with it ? Thank you

  5. I’ve got a pint of mint chip in my freezer right now. It tastes GREAT! The consistency, at least of the batch that I got, is very dry as crazy as it sounds. I had to scrape my spoon across the top and it comes off in sheets…reminds me of the dipping dots mouth feel. I don’t think I’ll tend to over eat this ice cream, so I shouldn’t have any stomach issues.

  6. I eat a pint of “Rebel Coffee Chip ” every day! ha Let me tell you, it makes the best ice coffee too. The Mint chip is my favorite and I add alcohol free pure mint extract to mine because I’m a mint lover….it’s sooo good! The Black Raspberry is a fave too.

  7. Although it is good, I don’t understand the front of container says 4 net carbs in a pint….however nutritional info says 16 carbs per serving?

  8. I’d love to see an organic version, or one with hormone-free milk. This is just regular “big dairy” milk I believe. Meanwhile, I do indulge occasionally and love Butter Pecan!
