Following lunch at Sunny Choice (read my earlier blog post here), we continued down The Rail Mall and spotted this ice cream parlour mid-way that serves up guilt-free ice cream. Exactly what we needed. How could we give this a miss?
We tried a few flavours and decided on Salted Gula Melaka (bottom scoop, hidden) and Very Berry Drizzle (top scoop) in a cup. As the Salted Gula Melaka is a premium flavour, this double scoop (mixed) cup cost us $5.30 which is pretty reasonable for a portion good enough to share between the two of us.
I couldn’t taste any salt in the Salted Gula Melaka ice cream if comparing with Creamier’s Sea Salt Gula Melaka that’s heavenly good but what I did like about this ice cream was that it wasn’t saccharine sweet at all and it didn’t leave any cloying or sickly feeling after several mouthfuls. The Very Berry Drizzle which I very much preferred over the former had a refreshing flavour of sweet and sour berries. Combining both flavours together worked really well too.
The good thing about Sugalight is that they use a premium natural sweetener called Xylitol to sweeten their ice cream and this sweetener has zero carbs, prevents tooth decay and does not cause dangerous spikes in blood glucose levels which means their ice cream is suitable for diabetics.
The ice cream doesn’t taste fake and as it’s also made without dairy cream, it is low in fat and cholesterol too. If you’re trying to lose weight but yet have a sweet tooth (like us!), this is definitely worth embracing. That’s not all. Sugalight’s ice cream contains prebiotics to help maintain a healthy digestive system just like what Yakult, Vitagen and all yogurts do. With so many reasons and benefits to indulge in this icy dessert, what’s not to like, really?

After our sweet treat, we were ready to embark on our exploration journey.
Walking towards the railway truss bridge…
We took this path just to see what was at the other end and realised we weren’t quite on the right track to get to the hill as there was a high slope at Hindhede Road (that’s where the Visitor Centre is supposed to be located) that looked pretty scary to climb down so we just continued walking. Anyway, this was quite a boring route with just the same dirt path and greenery on both sides. We walked all the way to just before the former Bukit Timah Railway Station to catch a bus to Botanic Gardens instead. Our Bukit Timah Nature Reserve trek? Till next time.
