Frozen Cannoli Sandwiches

1/8th of recipe (1 sandwich): 133 calories, 2.5g fat, 161mg sodium, 24g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 13.5g sugars, 4.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4*

Freezy-cool sandwiches inspired by a beloved Italian dessert just seem right in the summertime. Are we wrong? (Pretty sure we're not.)

Ingredients:
1 tbsp. Jell-O Sugar Free Fat Free Vanilla Instant pudding mix
1 cup fat-free ricotta cheese
2/3 cup Cool Whip Free (thawed)
2 1/2 tbsp. granulated white sugar
1 tbsp. powdered sugar
1/8 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tbsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
8 sheets (32 crackers) low-fat cinnamon graham crackers, broken into 16 squares

Directions:
In a medium-large bowl, mix pudding mix with 2 tablespoons water until slightly thickened. Add ricotta cheese, Cool Whip, granulated sugar, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth with an electric mixer set to high speed, about 1 minute.

Stir in chocolate chips. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, about 15 minutes.

Evenly divide ricotta mixture among 8 graham cracker squares, and top each with another square. Freeze until firm, at least 1 1/2 hours. Enjoy!

HG Alternative: Can't find low-fat cinnamon grahams? Get regular cinnamon graham crackers instead. Just add 5 calories and 0.5g fat to each sandwich's stats.  

 
 
 
Freezy Tart Peach-Cobbler Squares

1/2 of recipe (1 sandwich): 99 calories, 1g fat, 88mg sodium, 20.5g carbs, 1g fiber, 10.5g sugars, 1g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*

These taste like we put peach cobbler a la mode in the blender, and then sandwiched that between graham crackers! Thankfully, ours have WAY fewer calories and fat grams than those fantasy treats would...

Ingredients:
1/3 cup peach slices packed in juice (about 4 slices), drained and blotted dry
1/4 cup Cool Whip Free (thawed)
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Splenda or Truvia)
2 sheets (8 crackers) low-fat cinnamon graham crackers, broken into 4 squares

Directions:

Place drained peach slices, Cool Whip, cinnamon, and sweetener in a small blender or food processor. Pulse until mostly smooth.

Transfer to a small bowl and freeze until slightly firm, about 20 minutes.

Lightly stir and evenly divide mixture between 2 graham cracker squares. Gently top each with one of the remaining squares.

Freeze until filling is firm, at least 1 hour. Yum!

This freezy-licious goodie was inspired by Ben & Jerry's Late Night Snack ice cream. Because (admit it!) you're dying to try a frozen sweet treat crammed with salty snacks...

1 tbsp. light chocolate syrup
2 full-sized caramel-flavored rice cakes
