4Giant WW chocolate fudge ice cream bars
12squareschocolate graham crackers (or regular graham crackers)
2cupsfrozen low-fat whipped topping, divided
1banana, thinly sliced
1cupsliced strawberries (optional)
1cupberries (strawberries, blueberries, blackerries, raspberries or any combination)
Allow the fudge ice cream bars to defrost at room temperature for a minute or two.
Line a loaf pan with aluminum foil (or plastic wrap). Be sure to leave some extra hanging over the sides so you can lift the frozen dessert from the pan.
Place 6 graham cracker squares in a single layer in the bottom of the prepared pan.
Top graham crackers with 1 cup of frozen whipped topping.
Unwrap the ice cream bars, remove the sticks and place bars in single layer, side-by-side. Press down gently into the whipped topping layer.
Add banana slices (and strawberry slices, if using) in an even layer on top of the ice cream bars.
Top with another single layer of 6 graham cracker squares.
Spoon remaining cup of frozen whipped topping evenly over the top layer of graham crackers.
Cover with plastic wrap, or foil, and refrigerate for about an hour before moving to the freezer for 1 to 2 hours, or until it's firmed up.
Before serving, remove dessert from freezer and allow to sit at room temperature for a few minutes - this will make it easier to cut.
Cut into 8 equal squares or slices and garnish with fresh berries.
This easy layered low calorie icebox cake can be easily modified to suit your tastes, what's in season and what you have on hand. Just be sure to adjust WW points as needed.
