Mud Pie Blizzard

Today was so hot and muggy and I wanted something cold to help me get through the day. This recipe from my favorite site Hungry Girl was the perfect afternoon pick me up. I think this summer is going to be a hot one so I am going to begin looking for more cold low calorie treats to help me survive another summer!

1 Serving
3/4 cup Breyers Double Churn Free fat-free ice cream, French Chocolate
1 No Sugar Added Fudgsicle pop (the 40-calorie single version)
1/2 pack 100 Calorie Packs Oreo Thin Crisps, slightly crushed
2 tsp. Hershey's Lite chocolate syrup
1/2 - 3/4 tsp. instant c offee (depending on how much you like coffee flavoring)
1/2 tsp. Coffee-mate Original Fat Free powdered creamer, dissolved in
2 tbsp. warm water 1 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Splenda)
3/4 cup crushed ice (about 4 - 6 cubes)
  • Combine the chocolate syrup, instant coffee, and sweetener with the Coffee-mate mixture. Add 2 tbsp. of cold water, and then pour into the blender.
  • Cut the fudge pop into pieces (removing the stick), and add the pieces to the blender as well. Then add the ice cream and crushed ice.
  • Blend briefly at low-to-medium speed until just mixed. Spoon mixture into a glass, and then stir in the cookie pieces.
  • If needed, place in the freezer for 5 minutes to firm up.
