1. In a small saucepan sprinkle gelatin over 1 cup water. Let stand 5 minutes to soften gelatin. Add 1/3 cup sugar and Sweet'N Low.

4. Spoon into large bowl and beat until smooth. Return to aluminum pan, cover and freeze 3 hours. Transfer to bowl and beat again.

5. Return to pan, cover and freeze until firm, several hours or overnight.

To serve, let sorbet stand at room temperature about 15 minutes for easier scooping.
