Gluten-Free Ice Cream: Part 2


My twin nieces are gluten-free, egg-free, and dairy-free. Prior to their "free spree", they loved ice cream. Both girls have a sweet tooth and their papa (my b.i.l.) tends to fulfill their sweet cravings behind momma's back. Recently, my sister discovered Purely Decadent ice cream. All of their ice creams are dairy free, lactose free, cholesterol free, certified vegan, and certified made with organic ingredients. Their products include Purely Decadent pints, Purely Decadent pints made with coconut milk, Purely Decadent Novelties Stickbars Singles, and Purely Decadent Novelties Multipacks.

On their website, they advertise their Cookie Dough ice cream as gluten-free. It is described as "vanilla dairy-free frozen dessert packed with scrumptious cookie dough chunks and crispy chocolate flakes." This sounds delicious!! My sister says it is a bit pricey but I definitely want to check it out soon.

Here is the nutritional information for the Purely Decadent Cookie Dough frozen dessert. (Just realized they don't call it ice cream.)

Our whole family loves Purely Decadent, especially the coconut milk cookie dough flavor. It really is one sweet treat I feel good about giving to my gluten and dairy intolerant daughter.

Yum, I love purely decadent!

I just read Part 1 of your ice cream series and it's really good info. I love ice cream - I have two ice cream makers and am always stirring up something new. It's good to know that the ice cream industry is taking such strides to meet the needs of those with gluten and other food concerns.

Love this brand of ice cream! The gluten-free cookie dough is amazing. My mom and I were thrilled to discover it in our local co-op. The coconut milk gives it a great flavor. I'm planning on making some ice cream of my own with it asap!
