Cran-Orange Ice Cream Cake
Total TimePrep: 30 min. + freezing Cook: 15 min. + chilling
I used Nilla wafers instead of the gingersnaps, and only used about a half a Tbsp of orange peel, and it turned out quite good!
Some family members don't like citrus peel. I used 3 cups sugar-free vanilla frozen yogurt and 3 cup orange sherbet. Yummy! It would change nutrition count but a diabetic ate it without a sugar spike!
Watch the fat and cholesterol content of the gingersnaps. There are low fat ones and the not so low fat ones depending on the brand. One of the few heart healthy cookies around without paying the higher "low-fat" prices - Fig Newtons are the other ones (and pfefferneusse for Christmas!).
This is a wonderful recipe. Very tasty and hard to believe it is light. Like anything you eat, if you don't do it in moderation, then it is your own fault it isn't healthyPlease remember to rate recipe when you write in here. Be fair to the author of the recipe.
Your only going to eat 1/12th of this and then yes it is healthy if you set and eat the whole thing then no it's not. yes there is butter and all in it but it is spread thru out the cake . most who are unhappy about the cals eat more then they think.

I have not tryed it yet but will make it for Christmas and as far as not being healthy it is a better dessert then any I have found out there so far. Nothing is healthy anymore so they say. And a smaller slice would cut the unhealthys in half again right go for it this sounds great to me and will make it any how.
Wonderful, but with gingersnaps, sugar, butter, and ice cream I wouldn't label it "healthy". Oh well can't have it all!!
