INGREDIENTS :

– 1 cup of milk

– 1 1/2 cups lite cool whip

– 2 large boxes of sugar free fat free instant vanilla pudding  (3 oz total)

– 16 graham crackers (flavor of your choice) cut in half ( 32 squares total)

– red white and blue sprinkles

Then in a large bowl mix together your milk, instant pudding, and cool whip. It will end up a very thick texture.

Pick up one of your squares with the “ice cream” scoop and press one of your extra squares on top (dotted side out). Squeeze until the “ice cream” gets pushed out the sides.

Once they are all done and back in your glass dish, cover and place in the freezer for about 3 hours or until firm. Then store back in your freezer in an air tight container for up to 2 weeks. Pull out about 15 minutes before you’re ready to eat!
