Gluten and Dairy Free Ice Cream Sandwich Recipe Guest Post

Tiffany Hinton bio 
Tiffany Hinton is a Super Mom, Business Owner, Best Selling Author, and Gluten-free lifestyle expert!  Tiffany started writing several years ago, while going through treatments for infertility. Tiffany learned in 2009 she was gluten intolerant along with being lactose intolerant, turning her life up side down. Not know where to start and pre-made gluten-free items being too pricey. She started to experiment and explore cooking and baking; still wanting family favors to eat. With research and practice Tiffany can now turn any desirable recipe into gluten and dairy free, without sacrificing the taste.

Do you remember those hot summer days as a child where an ice cream sandwich brought the taste of chocolate and cold ice cream in an easy to hold treat… This was the first time my girls got to experience this wonderful memory from my childhood. As a Mom with 2 little girls who have gluten allergies and one who can not have dairy, it is always an adventure.

Nummy, Nummy and Franki’s new word tasty!  The repeated request for chocolate and I knew these were a huge hit.
To make your own you will need the Brownie Bite Recipe from Gluten Free Mom Certified and the Dairy Free Ice Cream from Summer Thyme.  (both are fabulous cookbooks of mine)

PLC Review Gluten & Lactose Free Ice Cream & Sorbets

Rice Dream Organic

I don’t know about you, but I’m really getting tired of frozen fruit bars and just want an ice cream cone. It’s getting increasingly difficult as the weather is gorgeous and especially while we went on vacation in Hilton Head. Ice cream parlors all over the island!

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been really interested to try a few new products to have as my after dinner snack. I’m not an incredibly sweet toothed person but I do enjoy the occasional small desert.

Since being struggling with milk products, I found rice milk to be quite yummy and taste great compared to others. I can’t stand almond milk – it’s so thick. I don’t know how you guys drink that stuff!

Needless to say, I immediately got excited when I saw this in the Rice Dream ice cream isle at Earth Fare. We had it on one sunny afternoon and I was not impressed. The consistency is weird similar to frozen syrup and there is an odd after taste that lingers around. Even my husband didn’t like it and he loves sweets. I think I’ll stick with the rice milk.

We should’ve known better when right on the container it says, “new and improved taste.”

Ok, our last grocery trip resulted in these three guys… Let me tell you a little bit about them!

Lifeway Frozen Kefir

Gross. Tasted like vitamins. Stick with their probiotic smoothies….

Has anyone had any of Lifeway‘s other ice creams? I really like their smoothies to take my vitamins each day. I find they go down much easier.

Arctic Zero

Many of my fitness competitor friends live off of Arctic Zero. Maybe because the whole container is only 150 calories. I remember when I competed and often dreamed of eating ice cream, but this doesn’t come close. The first ingredient is water and that’s exactly what it tasted like – frozen strawberry water. This is for desperate people on a diet.

Oh, and what the heck is “lactose intolerant friendly?”

Ciao Bella Sorbet

Ciao Bella was the best out of the bunch. I still struggled with a funky after taste. My husband asked why I kept eating it and I said “because if I keep going, I can’t taste the weird part.” It is a VERY strong Mango flavor. The limitation with this company is that I only found 2 flavors at Earth Fare. I think it is promising though and would like to see a raspberry or strawberry version. That would be tasty.

Dark Chocolate Dream

I saved the best for last.

This stuff was delicious. A few little squares of this and I am good for the night. Gluten free, lactose free and dark chocolate. The texture was nice and it wasn’t too bitter of a dark chocolate for me. The rice crunch added a nice compliment to the chocolate! Highly Recommended.

Have you tried any of these brands in other flavors and liked them? Please leave a comment below.
Do you have a favorite brand or product for ice cream/sorbet?

ciao bella vanilla was good after you get used to the odd taste, my husband didn’t like it but going lactose free I was happy with it! thanks for the blog, I am recently lactose free because of my baby being lactose intolerant and trying to cut back on gluten-filled foods so I am very much looking forward to following and sharing on here!

    Hi Stephanie-

    Thanks for stopping by. I hope I can continue to build this community!

    I guess I just can’t get used to treats that you basically have to warm up to! What’s your favorite lactose free product so far?
