Author Dorothy Kern


  • 1 can fat-free sweetened condensed milk 14 ounces
  • 2 containers fat-free Cool Whip 8 ounces each, see note
  • 1 large or 2 small lemons
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract


  • Stir together sweetened condensed milk,  zest and juice from 1 large lemon (or 2 small ones), and lemon extract. (You can skip the lemon extract and use vanilla instead, but to give it that punch of lemon flavor you need the extract.) Fold in Cool Whip.
  • Place in an airtight container and freeze until hardened, at least 6 hours or overnight.
