This is close enough to real thing, although I have never tried it but I imagine that the mixture could be frozen until ready to use --- *note* do not double the recipe as it will not thicken properly, make two separate recipes in two bowls, use only *pure* vanilla extract for this :)

  2. Soften gelatin with 2 tsp cold water, then add the boiling water, stirring until gelatin is completely dissolved; cool until tepid (almost room temperature).
  3. Place ice water and dry milk powder in the chilled bowl.
  4. Beat at high speed, until mixture forms stiff peaks; add sugar and vanilla, still beating, then oil and gelatin.
  5. Place in freezer for about 15 minutes, then transfer to refrigerator until ready to use.
  6. Stir just before using, to retain creamy texture.
  7. **NOTE** do not double recipe or the mixture will not thicken. also, 1 tsp PURE vanilla may be added if desired.
