I am one of those weirdos who generally prefer light sorbets/ices over custardy/rich ice creamy concoctions. (not a big milk fan)

I am eagerly awaiting some of those recipies on this board Can those be made in an ice-cream maker too?

Sure.. there are tons of sorbet recipes out there, and of course they can be made in any ice cream maker.

BBC - Food - Recipes - Summer ices
Ice Cream Recipes - Ice Cream Sorbets
Food Network Search

Sometimes these call for a boiled sugar syrup, so will need cooling time.. but you can just start experimenting with straight fruit juices. You can also make the sugar syrup ahead of time and keep it in the fridge - lasts essentially forever.

If you don't have an ice cream maker, there are also ices, "granita"s and "semi-freddo"s that you can make in a freezer tray, stirring occasionally; you just won't get the smooth texture that a machine gives.

my finkberry low-fat froyo - it's tart cuz it's real yogurt!

3/4 cup of low-fat milk
1/3 cup of sugar
2 cups of low-fat yogurt
2 tablespoons of whole milk
1/2 tablespoon of vanilla

for the swirl: bag of frozen raspberries, 1 lemon, sugar

mix the milk and sugar in a bowl - either whisk like mad or use a hand/wand blender. all the crystals should disappear.

blend in yogurt and vanilla

pour into the machine, and turn on.

take one bag of frozen raspberries, thaw or put in microwave for 30 secs, squeeze juice from one or half lemon (depends on your taste) and 2-3 tablespoons of sugar, mash and blend, let sit till icecream is ready. you can use sieve if you don't like seeds

scoop froyo into container, layering with the berry mix in ribbons, more froyo, more ribbons. after freezing for 1/2 hour or so, carefully fold only 2-3 times in your container for better swirl...

when serving, let the container sit out for a few minutes, since it is "light" it's icier, so better when slightly thawed...enjoy!

i haven't made a non-fat version because i tend to avoid non-fat - the true p*nkberry is non fat...

If i think of something clever to say, i'll put it here...
