It’s everything Ice Cream! We have recipes for all sorts of allergies and special diets.
Cookies N Cream Ice Cream
Sigh. Can you believe it? This is the last post of Ice Cream Week. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure I’ll come up with new ideas, such as birthday cake ice cream (yup, I have been thinking about that one for a while) and Bubble Gum (still trying to find the gum), and a few others, something with heat, something that’s sweet; you get the idea. So, with a slightly saddened heart, I share with you the final post. You know that song, na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye. Yes, that’s what’s playing on my mental radio.

S’more Ice Cream
Late one night, when the kids should have been asleep, Kid Three wanted to be part of the conversation. The Papa and I were talking about supply and demand (at which point Kid Two wanted to get involved) and just all things related to the business. We then got on the topic of ice cream, and some of the ideas that I had to use on the machine, knowing that I wanted to have an ice cream theme week, and that I’m working on an ice cream book. Kid Three suggested Bubble Gum Ice Cream, which I thought would be really cool, at which point S’more Ice Cream hit me like a ton of bricks (as did many other good ideas). Once made, the kids went wild for this ice cream. I was afraid of the marshmallows were going to get hard and be weird, but in the end, everything turned out just right, and they all lived happily ever after. Yup, still trying to be a comedian. So, I present you with S’more Ice Cream!

Soy Free: Use a safe non-dairy milk alternative. Be sure to source soy free marshmallows (not the Dandees brand) and graham crackers (not Kinnikinnick). I have yet to see GF SF graham crackers, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t out there, and you could always make some. However, if you can have gluten, there are plenty of soy free options. Read More
Paleo & GAPs Maple Bacon Ice Cream
Did I tell you the love bacon? Especially Kid Two. He just loves it. And the all like to try the fancier ones from Good Eggs from time to time. I will say though, they’re not at the extreme level yet where they want bacon covered chocolate, etc. So, I got to thinking about ice cream one night, and BOOM! Maple Bacon Ice Cream. Bacon? goooood. Ice Cream? goooood. Maple? Greeeat because Kid Three tolerates it a lot better. I knew then that because bacon would be involved, it had to be Paleo so everyone could have a nice big bowl of it.

Ice Cream Topping – Balsamic Fruit
This wasn’t a huge hit here at our house. In my head (remember, I can’t eat any of this stuff) this was a great idea. It sounded so fancy, and seemed like something you would find in an up-scale restaurant. Well, needless to say, the kids, and The Papa couldn’t see themselves at an up-scale restaurant. Poor me.

Organic Peach Sorbet
Welcome to Ice Cream Thursday. I feel like we’ve come so far, yet have so much further to go. So, here we are with an Organic Peach Sorbet. Did you know I’m allergic to peaches? A few times a year, I try to convince myself that I’m not, and try a little from a safe farm. It never seems to work out, and then I have the kids eat the rest. Well, this was one of those times. I mean, hey, why should they get to have all of the fun with the ice cream machine, right? Wrong. I should have left good enough alone. haha. Anywho, at least anyone who stops along to read this will benefit, and hopefully indulge in the sorbet I can’t have. Be sure to let me know how good it is 🙂

For Paleo: Omit Kuzu, or try using a little arrowroot flour, but not too much.

Green Apple Garnish
Ice Cream should have toppings, right? Well this one is quite versatile. It’s good for ice cream, cupcakes, and cookies too. I can also seeing this being delicious in your morning yogurt. It does however take a long time to make. I made two versions of this, one Paleo/GAPs friendly, and the other with cane sugar. Take your pick.
Special Tools: Apple Spiralizer
This is important because if you were to peel bu hand or using a potato peeler, you won’t have a consistent width. That’s not the end of the world though. You’ll need to do more cutting once you’ve finished the peeling step.

Nectarine Blueberry Sorbet
This one is SO special and near and dear to my heart. I ate some. YUP. I ATE SOME. I had to source safe items from various places, but did you hear the news? I ATE IT! This wasn’t the kid’s favorite flavor, but the funny thing is, I really liked it. However, I have to say that my illness has truly changed my taste buds, quite a bit.

Organic Strawberry Ice Cream
It’s Ice Cream Tuesday! (still hoping it’s not old)
So, now that we’ve covered the vanilla basics, and of course have a chocolate recipe, it’s time for strawberry. By their powers combined, they are Neapolitan Goodness!!

Organic Paleo & Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream
In terms of flavor, the kids have rated this chocolate ice cream one of the best flavors so far. However, full disclosure, when they had this one, they didn’t know what other flavors I had up my sleeve.

Lemon Gingerbread Ice Cream
I don’t know why, but I have a thing about lemon gingerbread. Can I let you in on a little secret though? I’ve never eaten the combo, and I don’t like gingerbread cookies. Either way, this idea was one of the firsts that I had when we got the ice cream maker. I think it stems from having the Lemon Gingerbread Mini Cupcake, and somehow, this just pairs so well with it in my head.
