i literally went through every recipe on this site to try to find a homemade ice cream recipe that needed no heavy cream, or an ice cream maker, and this is one of the most low-calorie, easy, and versatile.
1st batch i used splenda, vanilla yogurt, 1/2 c liquid egg whites from the carton. i didnt beat the eggs and splenda until stiff. i stirred it often and still got the ice crystal consistency but it tasted smooth and delicious anyway. i don't recommend using this recipe for vanilla, because it tasted exactly like frozen vanilla yogurt. 2nd batch, i used 1/2 yogurt and 1/2 sour cream and added 1/3 cup pumpkin, 2 T sugar, and pump. pie spice. i tried to beat the eggs until stiff, but it didnt make a diff. last batch, i used only sour cream, and added cinn. i would recommend this flavor, and i couldn't taste the sour cream. I wouldn't recommend telling people there is sour cream in it, at least not until after they eat it :](learned the hard way). at first, this recipe scared me because i HATE sour cream, but i'm definitely glad i tried it as it was masked by the flavoring in both of my batches. from now on, i will try this recipe with fat-free yogurt and fat-free sour cream, and the flavors peanut butter, key lime pie, and CAKE BATTER (my favorite :]).thank you much for this recipe!!!
also, note to all, if you freeze the container you're going to make the ice cream in (i use tupperware, or old plastic containers) it does firm up faster so i would recommend doing this!
