Recipe Suggestions for Low-Fat Homemade Ice Creams?

Q: My fiancé and I just got an ice-cream maker as a wedding gift. I can't wait to start experimenting. However, he is watching his weight and would prefer that I not make full-fat ice cream on a regular basis. Can anyone recommend a lighter ice cream recipe that isn't icy or lacking flavor?

Editor: One easy way to make at least a slightly lower-fat ice cream is to cut out the eggs. I really love the method from Jeni's Ice Creams of using cornstarch to thicken the base instead of eggs. This also helps keep the ice cream creamy instead of icy.
