Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

1 cup low-fat (1%) milk
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 pint vanilla ice milk or fat-free frozen yogurt, divided

Preparation

  1. Combine milk and cornstarch in heavy saucepan. Stir until cornstarch is completely dissolved. Add brown sugar and margarine; cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly with wire whisk. Bring to a boil. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Cool to room temperature.
  2. Place 1/2 cup ice milk in each of four sherbet glasses. Top each with 1/4 cup caramel sauce.

Cook's Tip

Ice milk is made the same way as ice cream, except that it contains less buttermilk and milk solids. The result is a lower calorie count and a lighter texture.
