Milk chocolate ice cream

     I love my ice cream machine, but all of the recipes are so high fat.  
     I have noticed several requests for low fat ice cream recipes, and it 
     is sooo hard to find any.  Unfortunately, most of the recipes use 
     gelatin.  Here's one from "Fat Free Desserts" by Karen Pellegrin.  
     It's an ok start.  It has the consistency of soft serve ice cream.  
     I'm playing with some modifications.  If anyone else has any luck, let 
     me know.
     Milk chocolate ice cream
     2 cups sugar
     1/2 cup nonfat dry milk powder
     1/4 tsp salt
     4 tblsp cornstarch
     2 tblsp unsweetened cocoa powder
     4 cups skim milk
     1 12oz can evaporated skimmed milk
     2 tsp vanilla extract
     Put all this in a pan and heat until it begins to boil (I hate this 
     part, but I haven't figured out whether I can get around it).  Then 
     you have to cool it before adding to your machine.  The recipe makes 
     more than my machine can hold, but I just store the extra and make it 
     a few days later.

     PS - If, like me, you are too impatient to watch your mix cook and you 
     burn the bottom of your pan, then use cream of tartar to get the 
     burned stuff off.  I might switch to the microwave if this keeps up.
