Beating the heat with D-friendly summer desserts

I don't know about you, but right about July I start getting a little tired of popsicles. It's not that I can't have ice cream - I can and I do, but it ain't easy if you're trying to go easy on the carbs or MEF factor. (Ice cream and pizza, sitting in a tree....) Other desserts taste great, but nothing quite hits the spot on a hot summer day like some icy cold treat.

I saw this post on The Kitchn today and thought it would be super easy to tweak, not to mention offering a pretty exact carb count:

D-friendly Graham Crackers & Whipped Cream sandwich: In lieu of ice cream, press a small amount of whipped cream between two crackers, wrap in plastic or parchment and freeze! Whipped cream can be something like Cool Whip lite, or the more simple version of heavy whipping cream and a packet of Splenda.

This post also included frozen rice pudding, fruit, and soda - all of which could be sugar free and diabetic friendly. I can't wait to try it out!
