I had to share with people who would understand. We are avoiding all may contains, manufactured on same equiptment, and items at high risk for contamination like bakery items and ice cream.

I love to bake so that isn't an issue, but my boys (2&5) really missed ice cream.

I bought an ice cream maker andwe made some ice cream last night. My pa 2 year old came up to me after and said "Dat wuz ummy acream momma", later that night. It brought tears to my eyes.

It felt so good to give one of his favorite treats back to him.

Just had to share.

That is so nice. Thank you for sharing!
It does mean so much to be able to give our kids a special treat--a treat that makes their lives more normal.

Making ice cream and sorbet is great! Check out some of Alton Brown's recipes...he has one that I posted here for an egg free vanilla that is easier than the custard types and hold up extremely's soft and fabulous.
I ended up buying vanilla beans in bulk.
There is also a thread in the recipe section for sorbet and WOW is it good stuff! Easy too.
I think ice cream/sorbet is mandatory in life.

Here's a great food and cooking blog
She just spent the last month making a different ice cream every day--beautiful pictures and some really inventive and delicious ice cream flavors.
Some of them have nuts, and there is a boiled peanut ice cream, but if you ignore those, some of the others look fantastic.

Some of those are kinda wierd!Avacado ice cream??? LOL We may need to try some of those though!
One I thought of on my own is chocolate sunbutter ice cream.... My fav is chocolate pb ice cream which I haven't had in 2.5 months since my son was diagnosed. PB or other peanut products aren't allowed in our home anymore.

Hoping that 'Chapman's Canada' becomes a franchise for the USA so that 'safe ice cream' both PA/TNA safe and the dairy/latose free versions can be available to all the kids in the USA too.

I know there are some types that different people say they trust, but it just isn't that big of a deal to me now since we have the ice cream maker. It's a fun family night when we make it too. The boys sit anxiously by the counter waiting for the oven timer to go off and for me to tell them that it's ready.
It's kind of one of those positives that came out of this awful allergy.

Are there any store brands that people trust? Just curious. We trust Hoodsie cups, but was wondering if there was anything else...

I don't remember positively what brands have been mentioned... you could do a search on ice cream for a topic. I would hate to give out bad info.

We are now living in Canada & very much enjoying Chapmans & NoName (made by Chapmans) ice cream products.
But we lived in the States for years & we could only have Breyers vanila bean & Wendy's frostys
Hope that helps
