Elbow Bursitis + Low-Fat & Luscious

I've had an ongoing and painful case of elbow bursitis. It's kind of like tennis elbow, I suppose, but, boy, being red and swollen and terribly tender, it makes for one ugly elbow! Anyway, there's no knitting allowed yet and I'm just now getting back to keyboarding my new book with lots of breaks and rest for the still-inflamed joint. Next time I post I'll be giving away a couple skeins of sock yarn, but today I have a great low-fat dessert recipe that's easy as 1-2-3 and luscious to boot. So here goes:

Serves 4-6 (depends on serving dish)

2 Tablespoons cold water
1 1/2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin

2 6-ounce containers of your favorite flavor yogurt (I use Anderson Erickson's Yo-Lite)
1/2 Cup fat-free evaporated milk (or heavy cream if you're not watching fat intake)
1 Tablespoon honey

Small pieces of fresh fruit to top if so desired

1. Pour cold water into a microwave-safe cup and sprinkle unflavored gelatin over it. Let sit 5 minutes and then microwave for 15 seconds.

2. Gently whisk yogurt, milk or cream, and honey together, then stir in the gelatin.

3. Divide the mixture among 6 espresso cups or 4 small dessert glasses. Chill for at least 3 hours. If using espresso cups, run a knife around the edges of the cups to unmold the panna cottas onto plates and spoon a little fruit beside each one. If using dessert glasses, top with a little fruit and enjoy.

oooh, good luck with that! I have bircitis in my right shoulder which acts up from time to time. Of course it happens to be the same arm that has the carpal tunnel in the wrist and scar tissue in the rib cage, lol, so i hate damp cold days!

I made your recipe with low-fat lemon yogurt and a little lemon zest, and it was luscious indeed. Thanks! And good luck with your elbow.
