Easy Skinny Ice Cream Sandwiches are made with just 3 ingredients & count as just 2 points. A simple frozen dessert & curbs that sweet craving. So good!
My friends, I have found a favorite when it comes to desserts. You see, in an effort to be more conscious of my food choices, I have been on the self-plan for counting points. By doing this it helps me identify just how much I really shouldn’t be eating.
It has also helped me to watch portions better & understand how things can add up so quickly. My issue has always been sweets. I can do really well all day long & eat nothing but zero-point foods. Then at dinner & start pushing the limits. But then I really crave dessert.
***NOTE – WW has changed the way they calculate points NUMEROUS times since this post was originally written in 2017. Please refer to your current calculator for the most updated plan before making this recipe for the most accurate point count.
But man, it’s so hard to enjoy things anymore when I know how many points it’s going to cost me. It really does take the pleasure right out of whatever dessert I want to have.
So I decided to combine a couple of different recipes that I have seen on a multitude of sites for these Easy Skinny Ice Cream Sandwiches. It’s been floating about for a while now & I just had to see for myself.
They are just 2 points per rectangle & don’t taste skinny at all. I can “indulge” without really indulging & leave all the guilt behind.

With just 3 ingredients for these, it makes it pretty simple. I usually have my daughter whip these up after breakfast so they are ready for us to enjoy after dinner. It’s just low-fat yogurt, low-fat whipped topping & graham crackers. Yep- that’s it.

I mix it up with different flavors of yogurt & even picked up some chocolate graham crackers for variety. Sometimes we like to add other things like flavor syrups – but those do have & add calories which then changes the point count. So we save those for the weekend & try to not do it too often.
Are weight watchers desserts healthy?
Honestly, I’m not an expert on healthy eating. While this recipe was created with points in mind, I don’t make a ton of WW Desserts or weight watchers recipes in general. We typically find something that works for us & that the family likes & we stick to it.
I don’t really follow weight watchers as strictly as I should but I feel that when I find little things (like these ice cream sandwiches) that help me make better choices, that isn’t a bad thing.
Do I still indulge in candy, cake & goodies? Yes, in moderation. All things in moderation.
Can I replace the graham crackers with something else?
Sure, can. If you want to make these round, try these Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers with a dollop of the semi-frozen mixture.
You will have to still whip up the filling & then freeze it in an airtight container. Then scoop out what you need to make these mini sandwiches.
How do these equal 2 points?
Make your cuts at the perforations on the graham crackers. This will make your sandwiches into small rectangle-shaped bars. Those bars make these 2 points.
You should be able to make approx 20-21 bars in this batch. If you don’t mind enjoying 4 points – just cut them into squares as pictured here.
Can I use different flavored yogurt instead?
Yes, absolutely, providing that you get just the flavors & not the fruit on the bottom, which contains a ton of added sugar.
Keep in mind that the calorie & sugar content might increase if you pick a different flavor, which would probably change the point count a bit too. That being said, we do switch it up occasionally & it is delicious.
How long can I store ice cream sandwiches in the freezer?
I typically like to get through them in about a week. My daughter will whip some up on a Friday morning so we have them for dessert that night.
I will pull them out for dessert a few times throughout the week & over the following weekend. I would think they would stay relatively fresh for a couple of weeks or more if you keep them stored in an airtight container.

We have these pretty much every night. I love that this recipe makes 20 sandwiches- so there’s enough for the 5 of us for 4 nights.
Definitely, a great way to help me feel like I’m not depriving myself while trying to make better choices. Because if I’m going to be successful at something, I have to enjoy it enough to WANT to do it.
