If you’re like us, you scream for ice cream each summer. But did you know: The sugar-laden cookie sandwiches of your childhood are roughly 270 calories a pop! We knew there had to be a better way to get our summertime licks, so we came up with a simple, low-fat alternative that still has the same feel-good flavor. 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!
Chocolate Chip Frozen Yogurt Sandwiches Recipe
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes
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 one week.
Freeze the sandwiches as you make them. Frozen yogurt melts fast!
