Slimming World Friendly Ice Cream Recipe

2 egg white.
5 tbsp of sweetener.

First of all, whisk your egg whites until they start to form stiff peaks.
Mix the fromage frais and vanilla essence then fold into the egg whites, pour into a container and freeze for around 2-3 hours until set.
Take out the ice cream around 20 minutes before serving to give it some time to soften.
