Dairy, Egg and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Caramel Ice Cream Sundae With Dairy Free Caramel Sauce

Dairy, Egg and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Caramel Ice Cream turned out to be amazing!

Scooping Dairy, Egg and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Caramel Ice Cream

Rich and creamy with a hint of caramel…my mother, Matthew, Michael and I all deemed it to be a success.

So easy to create…I just replaced the granulated sugar in the Dairy, Egg and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Vanilla Ice Cream recipe from Senior Editor Alisa Fleming’s recipe in the Summer 2013 Edition of Allergic Living Magazine with Demerara Sugar.

I let the ice cream base sit overnight with the vanilla bean to get as much vanilla flavour as possible. Follow your ice cream maker’s instructions to create a batch of your very own Dairy, Egg and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Caramel Ice Cream.

Soooo good!

For even more caramel flavouring…drizzle with a Dairy Free Caramel Sauce.

Oh my, yummy!

I found an easy recipe to adapt by Chatelaine Magazine recipe…Salted Caramel Sauce click here.

I just replaced the butter with Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Sticks, omitted the extra salt and used Belsoy for the cream.

Matthew got excited with the new Sundae dishes…he ‘went to town’ by scooping himself some Chapman’s Peanut/Tree Nut Free Vanilla Ice Cream….topping it with  Dairy Free Chocolate Sauceand taking it ‘over the top’ by crumbling a Dairy, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Brownie.

Dairy, Egg and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Mint Ice Cream

Michael chose Mint as his second flavour to try in the ice cream machine.

He originally chose Mint Chocolate Chip, but changed his mind just as I was about to add in the chocolate chips in the last 5 minutes of ‘churning’.

I think Michael preferred to enjoy the creamy minty texture all on its own.

I don’t blame him…rich, creamy and oh so minty…Andy, my mother, nephew Lukas and I can all attest to loving this flavour.

I think crushed candy canes would be a perfect addition…my favourite flavour at Howard Johnson’s was always Peppermint Stick Ice Cream.

One can easily turn a bowl of Dairy, Egg and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Mint Ice Cream into Mint Chocolate Chip…

Dairy, Egg, Peanut/Tree Nut Free Ice Cream to be exact.

I was super excited when I purchased our very first ice cream maker…now I am over the top excited to discover how easy it is to whip up a batch of one’s own Dairy, Egg and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Ice Cream.

Not as convenient perhaps as popping by the grocery store to purchase a carton…but certainly worth the time it takes to make it so one can enjoy the childhood treat that every child should experience come summer time.

I decided to try one of Allergic Living Magazine’s Senior Editor Alisa Fleming’s recipes from the Summer 2013 Edition.

Michael’s favourite flavour is vanillaso vanilla was our first attempt.  However, as we used coconut milk in the base…the ice cream had more of a coconut flavour…but it was oh so creamy!

Dairy, Egg and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Coconut Ice Cream

4 tsp cornstarch
1/4 cup plus 1 1/4 cups Natur-a Soy Beverage or any plain non-dairy beverage
1 1/2 cups full-fat canned coconut milk
2/3 cups granulated sugar
2 tbsp. honey
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 inches of a vanilla bean…scrape the seeds from inside the vanilla bean

Instructions for making the ice cream base:

In a small bowl, whisk the 1/4 cup of non-dairy beverage of choice with the cornstarch…set aside.
In a saucepan, whisk together the remaining non-dairy beverage, coconut milk, sugar and honey.
Bring to a boil over medium heat…let boil for 3 minutes.
Whisk in the cornstarch mixture and continue to boil for another 2 minutes. The mixture will start to thicken slightly to resemble cream.
Remover from heat and stir in the salt and scraped vanilla bean seeds.
Let cool 10 minutes.
Pour into a liquid measuring cup…easier to pour into the ice cream machine.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Follow the directions of the ice cream maker to create your batch.

Dairy, Egg and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Coconut Ice Cream was delicious covered in Dairy Free Chocolate Sauce!

Reminded me of a Bounty Chocolate Bar…love the speckles of vanilla bean in the ice cream.

My boys love the Dairy Free Chocolate Sauce I make from Anne Lindsay’s Smart Cooking CookbookI like to replace the corn syrup with honey.

Dairy Free Chocolate Sauce

1 cup cocoa (make sure it is free of dairy)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp pure vanilla

In a saucepan, combine the cocoa and sugar.
Whisk in the water and honey.
Bring to a full boil on medium high heat.
Stir constantly for 2 minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.
Pour into a jar and store in the refrigerator.
Sauce will thicken as it cools.

If you love coconut…then this is the recipe for you. Unfortunately, my two nephews and Matthew were not fans…although, John and Matthew gobbled it up when they stirred in the Dairy Free Chocolate Sauce.

Michael, on the other hand, loved the texture…”I like this better than the Natur-a”. Well, thank goodness for that…as it is no longer available!

Michael thoroughly enjoyed his bowl of Dairy, Egg and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Coconut Ice Cream with Dairy Free Chocolate Sauce…I am elated!
