Everyone deserves to indulge in a little ice cream during the summer months, but this recipe won’t leave you feeling guilty, even if you have 2 or 3 of these whipped pudding ice cream sandwiches!
This recipe is so simple – the base of the “ice cream” is instant pudding mix and cool whip, sandwiched between 2 graham crackers to make a grahamwich!
Especially if you use sugar free pudding mix and fat free cool whip, I think you should be able to dip these in sprinkles. Or crushed oreos, peanuts, chocolate chips..mmm or reese’s!
I used chocolate pudding mix, but you could use any flavor, or even mix 2 together = double the goodness. Have you written the ingredients on your grocery shopping list yet?
- 1 box Graham Crackers (about 30 crackers in a box)
- Large box Instant Chocolate Pudding (or flavor of your choice, regular or sugar free)
- 8oz Cool Whip, thawed (lite, fat free, or regular - your choice)
- Sprinkles, nuts, oreos, or your favorite toppings
- Prepare the pudding as directed on the box in a large bowl, using the amount of milk specified. Mix with hand mixer.
- Mix in the thawed Cool Whip and blend until smooth.
- Place a large dollop of the whipped pudding on a graham cracker and top with another. It might get a bit messy, but it's all worth it!
- Place your prepared sandwiches on a large cookie sheet, or another flat surface that you can fit into the freezer.
- Freeze until the sandwiches are not so gooey, about 15-20 minutes, then dip them into your desired toppings. You may have to press your toppings into the sides.
- Keep them in the freezer in a zipper seal bag until you're ready to serve them.

You’ll get about 30 frozen sandwiches, 25 for myself and 5 for my husband, if I can hide mine well enough! Just kidding, this is a great dessert to share with your whole neighborhood!
