    I love this ice cream!! I used nutrasweet in place of the sugar and sugar-free chocolate syrup in place of the regular chocolate syrup for a lower carb ice cream.

    I am always looking for easy ice cream recipes you can pop right into the machine and this is one of them! This is a delicious recipe, with a light chocolate cinnamon flavor. My kids love it! And it's also made with most things I usually have on hand.
