Helpful Hints for Gluten-Free Ice Cream

Good Taste

Coconut milk imparts a mild taste that blends imperceptibly with most flavors. In Vanilla Ice Dream, however, the flavor is more noticeable.

Soft Scoop

Adding 2 to 3 tablespoons of alcohol (rum, Kahlua, crème to menthe, etc.) makes ice cream alternatives softer and easier to scoop.

Small Storage

Freeze ice dream in multiple small containers. These work better for storage than one large container because repeated thawing and refreezing adversely alters the texture of homemade frozen desserts.

Tight Seal

To reduce freezer burn, cover ice cream alternative with a layer of parchment or wax paper. Then seal container with a tightly fitted lid.

More Flavor

For added nutrition and crunch, top frozen desserts with a sprinkle of cacao nibs, unsweetened coconut or toasted seeds or nuts.
