GFCF ice cream

I GUARANTEE you'll like this ice cream. It's very easy to make. All you need is a blender. And, there's no dairy, no soy, no rice! This recipe is found in Lisa Lewis' Special Diets for Special Kids Two. Here's how to make it:

Ingredients
---------------
1 cup plus two tablespoons Darifree powder
3/4 cup powdered sugar (if corn is an issue, buy corn-free from Miss Robens or make your own using a coffee grinder or blender)
1.5 cups very hot water
2 tablespoons Spectrum palm shortening (this is organic shortening - no soy)
1/2 tablespoon guar gum OR 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum (note the difference here between tablespoon and teaspoon. If you use too much, the ice cream takes on a taffy like texture)

Put all into the blender and blend well for a couple of minutes. Stop and scrape down the sides to free any powder or clumps stuck to the side. Blend again until smooth -- ice cream smooth. Put into a freezer safe container and freeze. You could also make this using an ice cream maker.

That's it. Wait until frozen, serve and enjoy.

FYI for those that have corn allergies (not just to the protein in the corn, but the entire vegetable): DariFree contains ingredients derived from corn that include their crystalline fructose. We loved this as an alternative, but both of my children had reactions to it. I called the manufacturer and they confirmed my suspicions. Please keep in mind that my children have a reaction to any portion of the corn. This is why xanthan gum is also rendered unusable for them.

This recipe does, however, sound delicious!
