MAKEOVER "DIRT" DESSERT


I whipped up this quick dessert last night after much begging and pleading for dessert from my kids 
(as they do EVERY night!) If you're not familiar with "dirt" dessert, it's kind of like Cookies n Cream ice cream but just not cold. It's considered "makeover" because it's been made with lower fat ingredients and uses sugar free pudding. The whole family gobbled it right up! 

MAKEOVER DIRT DESSERT
Recipe from Light &Tasty

6 ounces low-fat or fat free cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 3/4 cup skim milk
1 package (1 ounce) sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix
1/2 carton (6 ounces) frozen reduced-fat or fat free whipped topping, thawed
10 (or so) reduced-fat Oreo cookies (I used mint filled), crushed

In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth. In a large bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix for two minutes; let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set. Gradually stir into cream cheese mixture. Fold in whipped topping. Stir in Oreo cookies. Serve scooped into a dish and garnish with a full Oreo cookie. Can serve chilled if desired.

Mmm I love all variations on cookies N' cream. The name is quite charming too. A great quick and not too unhealthy treat - just fab.
