Perfect for everyone, these faux ice cream grahamwiches are a lower sugar substitute to regular ice cream sandwiches! They are a breeze to make and a special treat ready from your freezer anytime.
In this post, I’m going to show you how to make these delicious Grahamwiches that are lower in sugar than their ice cream sandwich counterparts.
They are not only delicious but another great treat ready from your freezer anytime! They are also great to make with your kids.
I love to have cool treats in the summer and I also love to have things in my freezer handy should unexpected guests drop by. This recipe is the kid’s version of Granny Jordan’s frozen cranberry banana salads on both counts. They are easy to make (of course) and the only sugar involved is the amount in the graham crackers and what is on the sprinkles (if you use sprinkles). I use nuts on mine or leave them plain, saving the sprinkle ones for the kidders. If you make these, you’ll end up with at least thirty. I quit after thirty and started passing out spoons for all of us to lick what was left in the bowl. ~smiles~
They taste just like ice cream sandwiches, but with a bit more flavor to them and a lot less guilt.
In this recipe, I am using sugar free pudding mix and sugar free whipped topping, the only sugar I count is the small amount added to the graham crackers.
Be sure you check at the end of this post for a listing of other recipes on Southern Plate for those of us watching our sugar. There are several!

You really need two or three boxes of graham crackers to make sure you have enough since I generally don’t use the broken ones for these. Broken ones are eaten immediately ~grins~. I do tend to get name brand at times when I need to make something like this because the generic ones tend to have a lot more broken crackers whenever I’ve gotten them in the past.
Lets get to making goodies!
Add your pudding mix to the milk, using the amounts called for on the package.
Mix that up for about two minutes, until well blended.
When your pudding is all mixed up, add whipped topping and mix again until well blended.
There we go, all whipped up! This will be smooth and creamy, the perfect “faux ice cream” for our grahamwiches! This really is delicious and I hope you try it. Make them with your kids or grandkids or save ’em all for yourself, whatever cranks yer tractor. I’ve been known to make these and keep them all to myself for a least a month before letting other folks know they exist.
Break graham crackers in half and place on a plate to get ready to make these.
This is just the amount I started out with, I ended up using about double this.
Put a dollop of cream on half of a cracker.
Top with another.
For the kids, I pour out some sprinkles on a plate and just gently press each side into them.
I love the crushed nuts on them for me. You get the whole salty, chocolaty, sweet thing goin’ on!
Plain is also delicious though!
You can smooth the sides with a butter knife or the back of a spoon if you like.
I put each one in a cheap little sandwich baggie and then place all of the baggies in the freezer until we need them. They will be frozen in an hour or so. This is important to know because Katy kept coming to “check”on them.
