The 10 Best Frozen Desserts at Trader Joe’s


 I've done the tasting and the testing and the reviewing; here are my picks. And as someone who runs the Instagram account  @BlackGirlsInTraderJoes, I feel very qualified on this!

Key Lime Pie, $5.49 

This pie is tart and light, and the graham cracker crust is sheer perfection. And it has the true, natural color of the Florida key lime. Tip: top it with coconut whipped cream!

Cheese-less Cheesecakes, $3.99 

How does this even make sense? I’m not sure. What I do know is that you are still getting the textbook cheesecake texture without any dairy! 

Classic Lemon Bars, $4.49 

As a huge fan of all things citrus in the summer months, these lemon bars hit the spot. They’re a timeless classic and Trader Joe’s does it right!

Gone Berry Crazy, $2.29 

Chocolate-covered strawberries don’t have to be saved for Valentine’s Day! Grab a box of these dark chocolate-covered strawberries for when you need a chocolate fix.

Apple Blossoms, $2.29

Do you really want to bake an entire apple pie when it’s 80-plus degrees outside? I know I don’t. I heat these up and add my favorite vanilla ice cream.

Fruit Frenzy Bars, $2.69 

A layered raspberry, lemon, and strawberry Popsicle: Seems pretty standard, right? Dunk it in a glass of Champagne, though, and you have a special treat. 

Hold The Cone Chocolate Chip, $3.29 

Some of my favorite memories involve chasing that ice cream truck. Now I can indulge with a cone (or two) just by opening my freezer door.

Brownie Crisp Coffee Ice Cream Sandwiches, $3.99

The name says it all: A crispy brownie sandwiches the coffee ice cream for a sweet treat that’s, um, perfect for breakfast.

Speculoos Cookie Butter Ice Cream, $4.99 

If you love cookie butter, you have to try this. Not only is it great on its own, but it also makes for an incredible milkshake.

Vanilla Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert, $3.99 

Another win for the lactose-intolerant and vegan community! I love this in a root beer float.
