Knox to the Rescue (Again)

Here's why it pays off to always keep a few envelopes of Knox Gelatin on hand at all times:

Because all you need is some Knox, hot water, a few drops of extract (I used almond), some non-fat dry milk, some butter flavoring, a couple packets of sweetener and a handful of ice cubes. Throw it in the blender for about 5-8 minutes, and guess what you've got?

Ice Cream. Damn straight you do.


Actually, the 1970 issue of Weight Watchers magazine calls it the Warm Weather Delight. Either way, it is going to blow your mind.


It truly is mind-blowing how these few ingredients come together and form a mousse-like substance that is like no other... One that closely resembles ice cream, but contains no CREAM.

So with this weekend being the "unofficial" start of Summer. I insist you give this one a whirl.

Who needs the Dairy Queen when you can be a Knox Princess? Shut up. You know you want to try it...

You also neglected to say if you ate it all!

It kind of looks like yogurt...only I'm guessing it doesn't taste as good?

I think this is the recipe I've been looking for. My mom was on WW in the 60's. We made it all the time at our house, we called it snow pudding. But no butter extract. Usually vanilla extract, or instead of ice cubes add frozen strawberries. Is the actual recipe posted anywhere?
