For me, some great compliant ice cream is cold soymilk, two scoops of Dr. D's Protein Powder for A's, maple syrup, and frozen fruit.  I put it all in a Malt Cup:

and mix it with a Hand Blender:

Then stick the malt cup in the freezer.  After an hour or so, then I scoop it out into a bowl and enjoy.

Adam,

Your recipe sounds yummy, and high protein also which is great.

I used to make ice cream using goat yogurt with the frozen fruit, but all yogurt is now avoid for me, and all soy products are now black dots (that includes the A protein powder now).  It's been a challenge making changes -- that's why I was so thrilled with the ricotta base ice cream.

We all have to figure what works for our own bodies.

I just love your posts, Victoria and Ginny! Too bad we don't live close enough to gang up on these fellows! I used to get really fired up when they would tell me such and such didn't sell when they couldn't even keep it in stock it was flying off the shelves so fast. They don't do that anymore!  We have a new ALDI's in town,  and I only mentioned to them once that I was glad to see them stocking organic bananas, etc.. Well, they have huge ads about their multitude of organics now! I love it!

Is there anything that is creamy like ice cream that doesn't have soy, dairy, rice milk, coconut milk, or almond milk that are all avoids for me?  The rice & almond milk seem to have mostly compliant ingredients, but I can only drink small amounts or I feel "off" - I don't know why the tiny amounts of those avoids bother me.....

I've never found it if it is out there. Quark cheese might work for me (only a neutral) to make something creamy, but it isn't to be had around here, and why would I pay a fortune for milk that is deader than a doornail calling itself "organic" to make cheese??

Is this commercial "milk" that bothers you?  I make our milk.  It has nothing bad in it.  It is easy to make.  The last batch of almond milk I made found me a wee bit short of almonds, so I added a few raw macadamia nuts to the soaking water.  It was very, very good - and I left it plain, not even adding the tiny bit of grated nutmeg and tablespoon of honey that I normally do.  Just a pinch of sea salt.  

I use 1 cup of nuts soaked in about 2 cups of water for 8 hours, then drained and rinsed.  Put that in a good strong blender then add about 1 1 /2 cups of very warm filtered water and grind it thoroughly.  Then add another 6 cups of water and mix gently on low speed.  Strain it through a "milk bag" (you can buy on line) or a big piece of well washed muslin or hemp fabric.  Squeeze it very, very dry.  You can pretend you're milking an animal as you "milk" the bag

Easy to do.  Healthy.  Delicious.  (You do have to shake it before pouring because it separates just like cow milk used to do back on the farm.......)  

I have never tried other kinds of nuts:  Just almond and now the macadamia. I have never seen a recipe anywhere for walnut or pecan milk, so probably those wouldn't work so very well. Soy milk is much more difficult and time consuming to make at home if you don't have a special soy milk machine.  

Other than that, I truly wish I could suggest something creamy that you could use.  I have a dear friend who is an O and have wracked my brain trying to come up with something she could use to make creamy salad dressing, but so far no joy.

(I've edited this about 5 times.  It probably still has some typos in it.....)

This is taking things to a special piece of equipment, but this is what I've been doing for "ice cream".  I have a Champion Juicer that has one piece I can change to make ice cream.  It's made with frozen fruit only.  I used bananas, mango, pineapple and blueberries.  Feed it through and it comes out like soft ice cream.  Very tasty and all compliant fruit.  Don't make it often, but when we do (hubby helps), it's a nice treat.

BCgal,

I think that is called a sorbet - and yes, they can be really delicious and a different way to do your fruit servings for that day!  

Sorbets used to be used between courses at huge banquets to clear the palate.  

However, at our age, not being able to eat anywhere as much as we used to, "huge banquets" are now a figment of the imagination for hubby and me.

To those who tried my ice cream recipe and liked it:  THANK YOU so much for letting me know!  

Half of the things we eat are "Ginny's experiments".  Some turn out so well they are worth sharing.  I'm really happy that y'all feel the ice cream recipe was one that was indeed worth sharing.  I used the peaches because the combination was reminiscent of the "peaches and cream" cake I made years ago which used almost all ingredients that are avoids for me now.  

If you make the ricotta ice cream with other fruits, let us know.  


I subbed cardamom and agave.

It turned out more like a creamy fruit-shake (no problem there  ) so tonight I'll try finishing the concoction in an ice cream maker to see if it will firm up without freezing solid. This should work, given that the instructions on the ice cream maker for sherbet is nearly identical beyond the ricotta-for-cream switcheroo.



It's such a pleasure to have ice cream again!
