Icecream
SHARE THIS:

With gluten free and preservative free children, I tend to make a lot of things from scratch at home. We notice a huge difference in the kids behaviour when we do allow them the odd treat which often makes us wonder why we do it all!

Like most kids, ours are big ice-cream fans so they have been begging me to make them one they can eat. This has become a huge hit with them. It's very easy and comes out nice and creamy.

I don't often use xylitol as a sweetener however I find it necessary for the smoother texture of the ice-cream. Other sweeteners tend to make the ice-cream a bit more icy than creamy.

I enjoy the mix of mac milk and cream. I tried all cream but found it too heavy but the half and half gives it the perfect level of creaminess and does not feel overly heavy in my stomach.

This is best prepared a day before as you will need to freeze it overnight if you can.
