DAIRY-FREE, REFINED SUGAR-FREE, SPECIFIC CARBOHYDRATE DIET (SCD), PALEO
I eat more ice-cream now than I ever did before beginning the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD). Regular ice-cream was just one of those foods that I knew I didn’t tolerate well. Since starting SCD, I have had the freedom to experiment with so many different “ice-creams” that don’t upset my tummy. I was inspired to write this post about dairy-free, no churn ice-creams to show you how easy it is to make your own delicious and SCD-legal frozen dessert. I call this dairy-free, no-churn ice-cream because to me it tastes just like ice-cream, only minus the dairy and copious amounts of refined sugar.
The flavour possibilities are endless but here are three of my favourites: mango, banana and almond butter and strawberry. Honestly, there is no reason for fork out lots of money on expensive dairy-free ice-creams. All you need to do is freeze some fruit in advance and you’ve got yourself some amazing dairy-free, no churn ice-cream.
I do love making ice-cream the traditional way too. My ice-cream machine is one of my favouite kitchen gadgets. Let’s face it, though. It can be quite time-consuming. This recipe is so fast that you can literally whip it up in minutes. Perfect for a hot summer’s day. My daughter knows no difference between this and regular ice-cream and my mother-in-law who is dairy-free couldn’t believe how good these tasted.
I usually let grocery stores offers dictate which flavour ice-cream I’ll make. If the mangoes are on sale as they were last week, then we’ll stock up! The banana flavour will always be a firm favourite of mine too as I can tolerate it even during a Crohn’s flare. Ice-cream during a flare up? Now, there is something I never would have believed possible!
