I Scream, You Scream...

As the weather warms up and our thoughts turn to bathing suits and diets, I thought I would once again share a simple recipe for South Beach friendly ice cream that we've been using for the past two years. I honestly don't remember where I first found this recipe, but it's not original to me, so I can't take the credit. However, it's so easy and super good, so give it a try!

**I originally posted this as a note on my Facebook page, in case it looks familiar**

My parents gave us a Sunbeam (no ice or salt required) ice cream maker for our 10th anniversary and it has been one of the best gifts ever. The ice cream maker came with a small book of recipes, but I searched the Internet for an easy recipe that would work with our South Beach Diet, and the Internet being the amazing wealth of information that it is - I found one! Are you ready for this?

You will need:

1 - 1.4 oz. box Sugar Free Jello Instant Pudding
1 - 12 oz. can Fat Free Evaporated Milk
1 C. Low Fat Milk
1/4 C. Splenda

That's it. You mix the Jello (any flavor - the chocolate is good and the white chocolate was amazing!) and Splenda, then add the milk and evaporated milk. Stir it well to make sure the lumps are all broken up and then pour into the (pre-frozen) ice cream bucket. Turn the machine on, and in about 20-30 minutes you have delicious, diet-friendly ice cream.

The ice cream maker was $20 at Target - well worth the money.

  1. Really? That's crazy that you can make ice-cream out of those ingredients... and now here I am craving ice-cream at midnight...

  2. I'm not into fat-free :) so I'm wondering if this would turn out as well with regular (fatty) ingredients? Ever heard of anyone try it that way?
