The consistency of this dreamy, “no-bake” dessert is quite unusual. It’s a thick, slightly gooey, frozen treat. It’s not quite solid like ice cream, yet substantially heavier than whipped cream. I’ve made it skinnier by using reduced-fat Oreo cookie crumbs for both the crust and topping. The velvety filling is made with all reduced-fat and fat-free ingredients. One slice contains 278 calories, 7 grams of fat, and WW Freestyle SmartPoints 13 Blue and 13 Green. Made with full-fat ingredients, a slice has 357 calories and 19 grams of fat. It’s pure mocha bliss!!!
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Freezer Time: 6 hours
2 tablespoons reduced-fat butter, melted
1 (8 ounces) package reduced-fat cream cheese
1 (14 ounces) can fat-free sweetened condensed milk
⅔ cup Hershey’s Simply 5 Syrup, see shopping tips
1½ tablespoons instant coffee, dissolved in 1 tablespoon hot water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup frozen Cool Whip-Free (fat-free non-dairy topping), thawed
1. Coat a 9-inch spring-form pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
2. To make crust: Break the Oreo cookies into pieces and place in a blender. Blend into crumbs. In a small bowl, mix cookie crumbs and butter. Set aside ¾ cup of the crumb mixture for later use as the topping. Press remaining mixture into bottom of the spring-form pan. Place in freezer for at least 15 minutes to chill.
3. To make filling: In a large bowl using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add sweetened condensed milk, chocolate syrup, dissolved coffee, and vanilla extract. Beat until smooth. Gently fold in Cool Whip by hand.
4. Spoon filling into chilled crust. Sprinkle reserved crumb mixture evenly over the top. Freeze for at least 6 hours (uncovered) until firm. Store leftovers covered in the freezer.

Sweetened condensed milk is cow’s milk from which the water has been removed and sugar has been added. The consistency is very thick. It comes in a can that can be stored without refrigeration, if unopened.
Hershey’s now makes a fat-free chocolate syrup called Hershey’s Simply 5 syrup. It contains no high fructose corn syrup. Look for it in the section where other Hershey syrup products are sold.
