{VIDEO} Practically Fat-Free Hot Fudge Ice Cream Sundaes (Easy, 4-Ingredient, No-Machine Recipe)

Guilt-Free hot fudge ice cream sundaes, with just 4 ingredients, and without an ice cream machine… and the best part of all is that they are practically fat-free and so so easy to make!

If you’re looking for a fun homemade hot fudge ice cream sundae that has less than 1 gram a fat, compared to the 15 to 25 grams of fat in a store bought sundae, you are gonna love this recipe. It's sweet and super creamy, with that rich fudge on top, you would never guess this is is fat-free ice cream.

Since you guys have been loving my guilt-free no-machine ice cream recipe, I thought I would take that recipe to the next level by starting with my 3-ingredient, fat free ice cream base, that comes together with just a stir.

Add fat-free toppings and dig in! This stuff melts a little faster than regular ice cream, but it is so deliciously sweet and ultra creamy.

The ice cream base comes together with just 3 ingredients, some fat-free whipped topping and sweetened condensed milk with added vanilla for favor.

This stuff is so simple to make. Just give it a stir, freeze, and you have got a fat-free base for your sundae.

I made vanilla, but you can use any of my flavor variations to really customize this sundae.

And with the leftover ice cream ingredients, we’re making a nice thick 3-ingredient chocolate fudge sauce and whipped topping to finish it off.

The sweetened condensed milk makes this topping thick and sweet, a little vanilla for flavor and some unsweetened cocoa powder for a nice fudgy ice cream topping.

Warm it up in the microwave and you have got a super duper easy hot fudge sauce that is practically fat free. 

Then, comes the toppings!! Non pareil sprinkles and ice cream cones are also fat-free ;) 

A cherry on top to finish it off.

    To make your chocolate hot fudge topping, add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder to the remaining sweetened condensed milk, and stir until combine. Cover and set aside. Warm chocolate topping in the microwave when ready to serve. 

    When your ice cream is ready, scoop into a bowl and drizzle warmed chocolate topping on top. Finish with the reserved whipped topping, sprinkles, sugar cone and a cherry.
