So, I’ve decided to gain control of my eating habits. Fun stuff.
I’m a snacker and I love sweet treats so I knew I would have to come up with some sweet deliciousness that would be low cal. I thought about splurging on Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches. They look marvelous, but they’re kind of pricey. And anything that looks that good is sure to be devoured by my kids, meaning 1 package would last all of 2.4 minutes among the 6 of us.
Besides, I really want to do this with regular food as much as possible. I don’t want to have a pantry full of food for them and food for me.
I remembered the ice cream sandwiches my Aunt Barbara and my mom used to make when I was little. With some creative shopping, I was able to make these so they ring in at 110 calories and just 30 cents each. The kids thought they were great, and because they weren’t expensive to make, I didn’t mind them snacking on them too. It also helps that I was able to make 20 or 21 sandwiches, so they lasted a while.
Here’s what you’ll need:
I know. It’s not really ice cream. But the frozen yogurt is good and it makes me feel better to call it ice cream.
I found that 1/4 cup was plenty to put between the grahams. The store I shopped at didn’t have a large selection of frozen yogurt flavors, but I did notice that the kind with extras added in also packed extra calories. So experiment with flavors, but watch the calories.
If you don’t give a flying fig about calories, try these ice cream sandwiches.
What’s your favorite low calorie treat?
