Healthier Ice Cream Recipe

What are your favorite healthy ice cream recipes? I'm looking for something that would cut the fat out of my typical ice cream starter, so we can have homemade ice cream and still feel relatively healthy in this heat.

If you're looking to cut out fat, why not just make sorbet? Here are a bunch of recipes:

Also, I've been known to dump regular milk and flavorings into my ice cream maker when i've been in desperate need of ice cream. I take it out when it's slushy. it doesn't keep very well, but it does satify the craving.

I like 1c greek-style plain yogurt, 1/4c half & half, 1/4 fruit preserves, into a tiny ice cream maker, comes out soft serve and fruity in 15 minutes. You can add a spoon of sugar and/or vanilla.

Thanks for the answers! I think I might try the blueberry ice cream on here (http://www.food52.com/recipes...) and reduce the egg yolks and heavy cream, maybe add some greek yogurt?

Years ago a friend shared this yummy recipe. In a blender, mix 1 lb frozen fruit (I like to freeze my own fresh fruit to use), 1 cup of soy milk (I use vanilla soy), 1/4 cup honey or agave nectar (I tend to use a little less since I use fresh, in season fruit), 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract. Blend until you get the desired consistency. It's easy and delicious!

Gelato uses more milk than cream; look at Waverly's raspberry kirsch gelato.
