From now until September 4, some milkshake lovers will be able to get a low-calorie fix at their local Subway.

Earlier this month, the sandwich chain announced plans to work with the low-fat ice-cream brand Halo Top to offer hand-spun milkshakes at select Subway locations across the US for a limited time.

The milkshakes, which are available in vanilla bean, strawberry, and chocolate flavours, will be made with Halo Top’s ice cream, which is known for having fewer calories and more protein than most ice cream.

Like Halo Top’s ice cream, the brand’s milkshakes will be low-calorie and high-protein

Subway’s milkshakes will use Halo Top’s ice cream to create a lower-calorie, higher-protein option for milkshake fans. Halo Top’s ice-cream pints generally contain 240 to 360 calories and about 20 grams of protein.

Each milkshake will reportedly contain no more than 350 calories and at least 20 grams of protein.

For now, Subway is offering the milkshakes only in certain test markets

Halo Top milkshakes are available at nearly 1,000 Subway locations in six markets: Colorado Springs, Colorado; Hartford, Connecticut; Longview and Tyler, Texas; Salt Lake City; Toledo, Ohio; and West Palm Beach, Florida.

In these select locations, the shakes will be available until September 4. It’s not clear whether Subway has plans to sell these milkshakes at more locations – only time will tell.

This isn’t Halo Top’s first big release of the year

Back in February, the brand introduced Halo Top Pops, which are just 50 to 60 calories each. The high-protein ice creams come in flavours like Mint Chip, Peanut Butter Swirl, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, and Strawberry Cheesecake.

The pops began rolling out at select retailers nationwide in May and can be a tasty option for those who want to enjoy a high-protein frozen treat but may not have access to a Subway location that’s selling milkshakes.
