When in the mood for a frozen treat, you may reach for ice cream or frozen yogurt. Other options exist, however. Ralph's Italian Ices are a lower-calorie alternative to ice cream.

Serving Size

One serving of Ralph's Italian Ice is 1/2 cup, or 4-oz., which contains 175 calories, according to CalorieKing.com. Be careful of the size you choose to indulge in when ordering, as you can easily end up with several servings.

Fat Content

This frozen treat contains 10 g of fat per serving, half of which are saturated fats, says CalorieKing.com. This is a significant amount of fat for a relatively small serving size.

Carbs and Sugars

Each serving of Italian ice contains 18 g of sugar and 19 g of carbohydrates, according to CalorieKing.com. That means Italian ice can cause a spike in your blood sugar level, which can make it difficult to maintain a healthy body composition if you indulge on a regular basis.

Healthier Option

Ralph's offers a sugar-free option for some of its flavors, according to MyFitnessPal.com. These choices contain only 87 calories and 1 g of fat. Carbohydrate levels remain about the same as in the regular versions of these flavors.
