Quick Low Fat Vanilla Ice Cream

Want to try your hand (and taste buds) on a low fat, low sugar version of ice cream to use for beverages such as this? There are more complex recipes, of course, but this one is incredibly quick and easy to pull together and works great for inclusion in beverages!

2 teaspoons gelatin dissolved in 2 tablespoons hot water
10 ounces chilled low fat evaporated milk
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
Sugar-free sweetener (equivalent to 4 tablespoons sugar)

Whisk all the ingredients, and pour into freezing trays.

Tips: You can eat the ice cream on its own, or top up your favorite fruit or fruit salad. You can also freeze it in ice cube trays and have little ice cream scoops as snacks.
