Ice Cream Sandwich Alternative


In case you haven't noticed, I've been on a bit of a healthy recipe kick.  Despite my efforts to make healthy food, I still find myself craving the not-so-healthy things. One of these cravings: ice cream.  Specifically, an ice cream sandwich. 

For a healthier take on this summer treat, you will need:

  • Graham crackers
  • Light Cool Whip
Halve the graham cracker

Add two tablespoons of whipped topping to one side

And place the other side on top
Freeze the sandwich until it is firm.  Ours were in the freezer for about three hours, and that seemed perfect.  These ice cream sandwiches are so good and only about 85 calories each- perfect to satiate a craving.  You could do a lot of different varieties, too: chocolate graham crackers, chocolate or strawberry whipped topping, add some berries or chocolate chips....  Enjoy!
