Too-Cool Key Lime Pie Sandwiches

PER SERVING (1/2 of recipe, 1 sandwich): 128 calories, 1g fat, 105mg sodium, 24g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 16g sugars, 7g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*

Even if you're not a huge fan of key lime pie, you'll FLIP over these. SOOOO AMAZING!!!!!!!

Ingredients:
1/2 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt (like the kind by Fage or Chobani)
1 1/2 tbsp. granulated sugar
1 tbsp. lime juice (key lime, if available)
2 sheets (8 crackers) low-fat cinnamon graham crackers, broken into 4 squares

Directions:

To make the filling, combine yogurt, sugar, and lime juice in a bowl. Mix thoroughly. Cover and place in the freezer for 25 - 30 minutes, until it reaches a soft-serve-like consistency (very thick but soft enough to stir).

Place two graham cracker squares on a plate with the cinnamon-covered sides down. Give filling a stir and evenly distribute between the two graham cracker squares, about 1/4 cup each. Gently place another graham cracker square over each filling-topped square, cinnamon-covered sides up.

Place in the freezer until filling is firm, at least 1 hour. Enjoy!

HG Tip: If you freeze your dessert sandwiches for many hours, let sit at room temperature for 5 minutes before eating!
