Chocolate Chip Frozen-Yogurt Sandwiches

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!

The Skinny

Per serving (3 sandwiches):

  • 156 cal
  • 4 g fat
  • 29 g carbs
  • 1 g fiber
  • 2 g protein


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)


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Place in the freezer to set for at least 30 minutes, or cover and freeze for up to 1 week.

Pro Tip 

Freeze the sandwiches as you make them. Frozen yogurt melts fast!
