Guilt-free treat

I have been making these simple little deserts for a couple weeks now and we have been devouring them. They are kind of like a take on a healthier ice cream sandwich. A friend of Alan’s passed the recipe/idea on to me. Lola also adores them, not sure she’s met a “treat” she doesn’t like yet though. She is a wonderful little helper in the kitchen and literally squeals with excitement if I ask her if she wants to help me cook something.

You will need about 1 1/2 cups of your favorite fruit combination.

Toss fruit into your food processor or blender and pulse a couple times just until diced up really small, but not pureed.

Mix together the fruit, 1 cup of yogurt, and 1 cup of whipped cream.

Place foil in a 9″ x 9″ dish and layer the bottom with graham crackers.

Pour yogurt and fruit mixture over grahams then top with another layer of grahams. Remember to place them in the same direction as the ones on the bottom.

Freeze for approximately 3-4 hours then pull foil out of the dish. Slice into little sandwiches. I keep them in a freezer container or bag until ready to eat. I think they taste better after having set out for about 10 minutes to soften up a bit.

Frozen Yogurt Sandwiches

  • 1 1/2 cups fruit
  • 1 cup of yogurt (I use either Stony Field Low fat or a low fat Greek yogurt)
  • 1 cup of whipped cream (homemade or Cool Whip- again if I use Cool Whip I use Lite or fat free)
  • Honey Graham Crackers (low fat tastes just as good to us)

Wash and roughly dice up your fruit. Toss fruit into blender or food processor to chop it up really small. Mix together yogurt, whipped cream, and fruit in bowl. Place a piece of aluminum foil into a 9″x 9″ dish. Arrange graham cracker rectangles in bottom of dish. Pour yogurt mixture on top of grahams. Arrange another layer of graham cracker on top, making sure they are in the same direction as the ones on the bottom. Freeze for 3-4 hours. Pull foil out of dish and slice into “sandwiches.” Enjoy!
