What Is Nightfood Ice Cream—And Can It Actually Help You Sleep Better?
This 2019 Product of the Year promises to satisfy cravings and get you to bed on time.
Ice cream has become one of the more innovative food products in recent years, with a wide variety of lower-calorie, low-sugar, and dairy-free options now gracing grocery store shelves. A new brand, Nightfood, is taking ice cream one step forward by promising to help improve your sleep.
According to Nightfood’s PR rep, the company worked with a team of leading sleep and nutrition experts to develop these pints with sleep supporting minerals, enzymes and amino acids. Just one half-cup serving contains 10 percent of your daily magnesium needs, which has shown to both improve sleep and decrease insomnia.
Nightfood is currently selling eight flavors on both its website and Amazon with dreamy names such as Milk & Cookie Dough, Breakfast in Bed, and Cookies n’ Dreams, for $4.99 a pint. The company also sells two flavors of nutrition bars, Midnight Chocolate, and Cookies n’ Dreams, for those who prefer a different snack option. These bars have just 140 calories, 4g of fat, and 8g of sugar. They’re also a good source of fiber and protein.
A half-cup serving of Nightfood’s ice cream line ranges between 70-100 calories, 1.5-2g of fat, and 6-10g of sugar, making this an indulgence you can feel good about. A serving of Nightfood ice cream also touts 4-5g of fiber and 6-7g of protein to keep you satiated through the night.
