I had asked about the pint size frozen dessert. I was told that no product containing any form of peanuts was run on the lines that the pint size frozen desserts are made on. There are two flavors that have tree nuts in them (I think almond and I can't remember the other). The representative said that they are added at the end of the process into the dessert container so the tree nuts are not in the mixers.

But the frozen dessert is on shared equipment with milk, so if your child is milk allergic you still can`t give it. I have a good sorbet recipe. I`ll post it later.

DD is enjoying SAFE ice cream with the other kids! I know it is safe because I made it myself. It is dairy, egg and of course peanut and tree nut-free. Who needs Tofutti, anyway?! Not us!

Here`s the sorbet recipe. I puree either one pound of strawberries sliced or 3 large (or 4 small) peaches peeled and sliced. Add 1/4 Cup lemon juice (I use the bottled kind). Then boil 1 Cup sugar and 1 Cup water. As soon as it starts to boil, simmer it until you can`t see the sugar any more, about 15 minutes. Don`t stir while it is simmering. Let it cool about an hour. Add it to the pureed fruit and lemon juice, and add 1/4 Cup light Karo Syrup. Refridgerate for one hour. Then put it in ice cream maker for 30 minutes (turn it on first). Then freeze. Let us know how it comes out! I have also done it with 3 large bananas pureed.

I bought my PA & DA son a box of the vanilla cuties. After reading some concerns about them here, I checked out their web site, and the concerns voiced here seem to be well-founded. They make PB cuties and other milk-containing items on the same line. He has had all but one of the cuties with no problem. I'll let him finish the box, but I don't think I'll be buying anymore.
I sure wish I could find or make a milk-free and Peanut-free "ice cream" for my son. He is not a big fan of the icies. I don't have an ice cream maker.

My dd has the same allergies. I finally gave up and started making ice cream after her reaction in 2002 to WholeSoy Frozen Dessert on shared equipment with peanuts and milk, and not stated. Under the Recipes section of this board, I posted a recipe for a good chocolate ice cream made with soy milk. It is pretty easy and really good. The mixing everything together takes about 20 minutes. Then it sits in the fridge for 3 to 4 hours, then the ice cream maker for 30 minutes. I also did not want to make ice cream, but finally bought the ice cream maker and I am glad I did. Dd did not like being unable to eat any ice cream, and it just does not seem that there are any safe ice creams for pa/milk allergic people.
About Tofutti, I am the reason that the shared equipment is on the website. I called them right after the WholeSoy reaction and asked about shared equipment because I had been giving Tofutti Cuties. At the time the website did not state shared equipment and said the products were milk free and peanut free. I spoke with the VP, told him my child had had a reaction from shared equipment and not stated with a different company, and that if his equipment is shared he needs to state it. He agreed to put it on the website. Glad to know it is still there.
