Apropos all the interest in/discussion of frozen treats recently, including some hounds looking for lower-fat options, I thought I'd share one the best homemade low-fat frozen desserts I know (see recipe link below). This is a good one for those who prefer closer-to-instant gratification, because it's really meant to be eaten soft right out of the ice cream freezer rather (and is better that way).
A few recipe notes:
1. I prefer to melt all the chocolate into the base rather than hold some back as the recipe directs.
2. I've made a really delicious Mexican chocolate version by adding cinnamon.
3. Instead of using an ice bath to cool the base, I've scraped it into a cool bowl, covered, and refrigerated. This way, you can make the base in the morning (or perhaps the night before) and put it in your ice cream maker after dinner.
