First experiment with the new ice cream maker was successful… a lactose-free strawberry ice cream! made with real strawberries even.
Alas, no pictures, as I am still the owner of a defunct camera. Gabe’s is too much of a pain for me to be bothered with using. Hopefully my birthday will yield me a replacement (I’m hoping for one of those new ones that deals with the pet equivalent of red-eye.)
so you’ll just have to use your imaginations.
Next up… something else that’s lactose free. The thing is, the ice cream maker was actually a reward I got from work… but I picked it for Gabe. He’s not been able to enjoy ice cream in some time and I know he misses it. I miss it, as we don’t buy it anymore since I don’t eat tons of it and we tend to waste a lot of it if we do buy it.
Lactaid makes the milk, so that part is easy enough to get around the lactose. The cream is something of a challenge. I’ve found one lactose-free cream, but not sure I can actually find it in any of our stores. We’ll see. An alternative I am going to try is a tapioca cream. Figure I’ll make some of that tonight and see how it goes.
Busy weekend as I was working on web projects in addition to frozen treats. I have my own cloud now. Aside from my own sites, I’m also hosting Worst Little Podcast. I’ll actually be on the podcast here next week, so you’ll have to be sure to check it out. More details on that soonish.
