SKINNY FROZEN YOGURT SANDWICHES

Frugelegance – The Frugirls

By Carol and Randi – Oh my goodness, these skinny frozen yogurt sandwiches are so easy to make. Even better, they are super sweet and satisfying. The original recipe is from Weight Watchers, but we tweaked it a bit to make it our own. We haven’t had the need to buy ice cream from a store in six months. You might need to make a double batch like we do, because they will get gobbled up fast. These are a perfect summertime treat.

Items Needed:

  • Honey Maid Chocolate Graham Crackers
  • 1 container Sugar Free Cool Whip, thawed but refrigerated
  • 3/4 Cup Zero Percent Greek Yogurt (Fage or Trader Joe’s brands are our favorites)
  • Roll of Saran Plastic Wrap
    Optional additions:
  • 6 tablespoons Peanut Butter Powder (We use PB Fit brand) and 1/2 to 1 cup Lily’s Sugar Free Baking Chips
  • Diced Fruit Pieces or Chocolate PB Powder

The ingredients are very flexible so have fun and experiment. The original recipe uses Chocolate Pizzelle Cookies instead of graham crackers. We changed those because they are 1 point a piece instead of 1 point for 2 graham crackers. Sorry, but those points are pretty important for those of us who count those WW points. Plus, they are actually harder to find and cost more. (If you do want to try them, they are Online or at Homegoods).
We like to change up the flavors of graham crackers. Even with the same sandwich, try one chocolate and one honey graham. Or chocolate and cinnamon. Or go for a bigger treat and use thin cookies.

Directions:

  • First, prep by breaking graham crackers into halves (2 squares).
  • Mix thawed Cool Whip, Greek Yogurt and PB Powder using a hand held electric mixer (or whisk). The mixture should not be too thin. If it needs a little thickening, add a little more greek yogurt.
  • Stir in mini Chocolate Chips (we like lily’s sugar free dark chocolate baking chips. They are small and taste great)
  • Spoon a dollop of the mixture onto one square.
  • Place the other square on top to form the sandwich.
  • Wrap with a piece of plastic wrap and place in freezer till frozen.

Like we said before, there is so much room for tweaking to your own liking. You can add different ingredients or add more or less of some of those listed. For example, more PB powder, or leave it out if you are not a PB fan. Leave out the PB and add some cut-up pieces of strawberries, mashed up bananas, or peaches. The sky is the limit. Hope you give this a try and let us know some of your awesome creations.
