0 1/4 cup  whipped fat-free topping
0 1/4 cup  cold water
0 1/2 cup  low fat vanilla soy milk
1 pinch  salt
4 tbsp  sweetener (sugar substitute)
2 tsp  vanilla extract
2 each  raw egg yolks
5 tbsp  tahini
1 pinch  fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp  ground almonds
  1. In a saucepan over low heat, combine whipped topping, soy milk or regular milk, water, salt, sugar substitute and vanilla and/or vanilla stick (halved). Remove before it boils.
  2. In a bowl with a wire whisk, beat the egg yolks. Slowly add half the milk mixture to the beaten eggs, whisking constantly, and pour the mixture back into the pot with the remaining milk.
  3. Remove vanilla sticks and add tahini, 1 tablespoon at a time, whisking constantly. Add lemon juice. Mix until it becomes a smooth, thick syrup. It will thicken more as it stands and cools. Use as desired.
