CHEW THE RIGHT THING
HG's Scoopy Peach-Berry Icebox Cake
Icebox: old-timey term for a refrigerator. Icebox cake: an assortment of layered sweets refrigerated for optimal deliciousness. You: happy after making this recipe!
One 8-ounce container Cool Whip Free (thawed)
2 sugar-free vanilla pudding snacks with 60 calories or less each (like the kind by Jell-O)
2 cups canned peach slices packed in juice, drained
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
18 low-fat honey graham crackers (4 1/2 sheets)
2 cups raspberries (if frozen, thawed and drained)
In a large bowl, fold pudding into Cool Whip until uniform.
Place drained peach slices in a medium-large bowl, and blot dry. Sprinkle with cinnamon, and toss to coat.
Place 9 graham crackers in a single layer in a 9" X 5" loaf pan. Spread evenly with 1/3rd of the Cool Whip mixture (about 1 cup).
Layer with half of the cinnamon peach slices and half of the raspberries. Cover with half of the remaining Cool Whip mixture (about 1 cup).
Layer with remaining 9 graham crackers, followed by remaining Cool Whip mixture. Finish layering with remaining cinnamon peach slices and raspberries.
Refrigerate until graham crackers are soft, overnight or at least 6 hours. Enjoy!

Our technique for creating a swap involves low-fat graham crackers, a two-ingredient creamy concoction, and lots and lots of fruit! Assemble, refrigerate, and CONSUME...
