Low-cal Ice Cream Sandwich Substitute

Total Time

I learned of this recipe from friends when I was starting Weight Watchers. I usually use plain or chocolate graham crackers. Frozen Cool Whip tastes just like vanilla ice cream! Make a couple of these and leave then in your freezer. Watch out, this can be addicting!


  1. Break the graham cracker in half.
  2. Scoop Cool Whip onto the center of one graham cracker, sandwich the other cracker ontop, and press down to evenly distribute the Cool Whip.
  3. Freeze until the Cool Whips hardens and enjoy!

I made these today and they are out of this world! I did change them though. I used chocolate graham crackers. To the Cool Whip I added mint extract and green food coloring. My DH loves the SF mint ice cream sandwiches and thought these would be a low cal version of them. I was right. So yummy. Thanks for the great idea!

We are officially addicted! (And to a guilt free dessert!) These are amazing and the perfect sweet "fix" for us! This is such a simple recipe that's really easy to modify. We tried the original and loved it. So then we added a thin layer of reduced fat peanut butter. And then, just to see if it worked, we mixed sugar free chocolate syrup in with the Cool Whip... the possibilities are endless!!! Thank you, Mikus, for a recipe that we will enjoy again and again!

tasted like the real thing, just be sure to cover when in the freezer because they quickly get that frostbitten taste
