This simple dessert appears elegant when served in an individual glass dish topped with fresh fruit. On my last trip to Italy, it was the most popular dessert we were served but I am sure that it was made with full fat cream and more sugar. This one is slightly sweet and light and not many calories.

1 envelope (7 grams) unflavored gelatin powder 2 tablespoons water 1 cup fat-free half and half 1 cup fat-free milk 1/4 cup sugar 1/4 cup Splenda or additional sugar 1 cup fat-free sour cream 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

In a medium heavy saucepan, combine gelatin powder and water. Stir to soften gelatin. Add 2 -3 tablespoons of half & half and stir to mix. Add remaining half & half, milk, sugar, and Splenda.

Cook over medium heat while stirring constantly until mixture come to a boil. Remove from heat and cool until mixture comes to room temperature and just begins to set. Add sour cream and vanilla. Stir to mix well. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Serve with fresh fresh fruit.
