Light and Creamy Strawberry Freeze

I’m one of those people who believe that “light” or “healthy” desserts are a direct invention of Satan in dire need of exorcism. What a lie! If you’re going to indulge once in a while, don’t mess around with some fake dessert; do it for real! Right? However, there ARE times when something “light” can be utterly delicious and refreshing, especially when you’re in the midst of some freak heat wave that melts your mascara and bakes your brains as soon as you walk out the door. On days like that, a rich dessert can make you feel sick, rather than indulgent. Here’s just what the doctor ordered on such a day: It’s rich, thick, and deceptively luscious, without weighing you down. Plus, with healthy, fresh ingredients, even Mom would approve!


2 pks. unflavored gelatin

1/3 Cup boiling water

1 Cup cold water

2/3 Cups nonfat dry milk (yes, they still make powdered milk!)

1/2 tsp. real vanilla extract

1 Cup fresh whole strawberries, cleaned and frozen

2 pks. Splenda or other sugar substitute, or 2 tsp. honey

6-8 ice cubes

Empty pks. of gelatin in a blender and pour boiling water over them. Quickly add powdered milk, cold water, vanilla, sweetener, and frozen strawberries and start blender on medium to high speed. As it blends, feed ice cubes into blender until mixture froths and rises to the top. Immediately pour into tall plastic glasses or dessert dishes and put in freezer for 15 to 20 minutes. Resulting dessert will be ice-cold and pudding-like. Delicious!
