I have been craving barbeque foods,.. like potato salad and homemade ice cream. My mom said i could use the ice cream maker but I want to find a good recipe that is fairly low in fat etc? Hubby will also prolly want chocolate. Any ideas?

I like most of the commercial low fat ice creams. Homemade is always better, though :)

Here's a recipe from Cooking Light that sound delicious!

Chocolate Fudge Ice Cream

2 cups whole milk, divided
1/2 cup Dutch process cocoa
1 cup fat-free sweetened condensed milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 (12-ounce) can evaporated low-fat milk
Dash of salt

Heat 1 cup whole milk in a heavy saucepan over medium-high heat to 180 or until tiny bubbles form around edge (do not boil). Remove from heat, and add the cocoa, stirring with a whisk until cocoa dissolves. Cool to room temperature.

Combine 1 cup whole milk, condensed milk, vanilla, evaporated milk, and salt in a blender, and process until smooth. Add cocoa mixture; blend well. Pour mixture into the freezer can of an ice-cream freezer; freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.

Yield: 5 cups (serving size: 1/2 cup)
