If you’re like us, you scream for ice cream each summer. But the average ice cream sandwich can pack 220 calories or more. So we came up with a simple, low-fat alternative that will still have the feel-good flavor of the classic ice cream sammie. Made with vanilla wafer cookies and fat-free frozen yogurt, these mini homemade treats are light, refreshing and fun-to-make. Roll them in antioxidant-rich dark chocolate chips for an extra-tempting treat. Go ahead, have three!

- 1 g fiber

1/2 cup fat-free vanilla frozen yogurt, slightly softened
24 reduced-fat vanilla wafer cookies
1 ounce dark chocolate, finely chopped (or use mini chocolate chips)
- Line a shallow storage container or tray with waxed paper. Put a small scoop of ice cream (about 2 teaspoons) on a cookie; top with another cookie and flatten until filling reaches the cookie edge.
- Roll the side of the sandwich in chocolate so it adheres to the ice cream. Place in container or on the tray. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
- Place in the freezer to set for at least 30 minutes, or cover and freeze for up to 1 week.
Freeze the sandwiches as you make them. Frozen yogurt melts fast!
