cup sugar
2
envelopes unflavored gelatin
2
eggs or 1/2 cup refrigerated or frozen fat-free egg product, thawed
1 1/2
cups skim milk
2
cups crushed ice
1
(6-oz.) can frozen tangerine juice concentrate*
1
(11-oz.) can mandarin orange segments, drained
2

  • 1 In medium saucepan, combine sugar, gelatin and eggs; beat until smooth. Stir in milk; cook over medium heat until mixture coats a spoon, stirring constantly. DO NOT BOIL. Cool slightly.
