I'm taking a 4th of July menu from Allrecipes and trying to lighten it up. The original of this recipe had 102 calories and over 26 g. of carbs per serving.

The original recipe called for one cup of sugar and one six ounce can of frozen lemonade concentrate. I am replacing the frozen concentrate with sugar free powdered lemonade mix, so the additional sugar substitute may not be needed - taste first and add to suit your sweet tooth.

Peach Ice Cream

I'm taking a 4th of July menu from Allrecipes and trying to lighten it up. The original of this recipe had 221 calories and almost 14 g. of fat per serving. I haven't made this yet, so I don't know if it will work using the fat free half and half and egg substitute. I am thinking about using part half and half and part light french vanilla creamer. I was also thinking about trying it using a sugar substitute.
