Cheaper, low calorie ‘ice cream sandwiches’

icecreambarpaintScoop 2 T. of fat free whipped topping between two halves of a chocolate graham cracker, then freeze for half an hour or so. I wouldn’t go so far as to say it tastes exactly like a Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich, but it’s in the ballpark — for only 85 calories and 2 Weight Watchers points plus.

Did I mention it’s a heck of a lot cheaper to boot?

I got this idea off a blog called From Spud to Stud, written by a Texas guy who’s just starting his weight-loss program.  Stocking his freezer with low-cal treats like these will surely help in those weak moments when you need something sweet.

The problem, of course, is making sure you don’t do what I did and dunk a bunch of graham crackers in the whipped topping while you make up a batch of these guys. While one serving of fat free whipped topping is only 20 calories and zero Weight Watchers points plus, there’s 500 calories in that container — and way more than that in the box of graham crackers.
