Gluten Free Strawberry Ice Cream Recipe

This strawberry ice cream recipe is gluten free. Most ice cream recipes are except for the ones with addins that contain gluten. Made with old fashioned custard base, this recipe is creamy, but doesn’t freeze up as solid as many homemade ice cream recipes because of the added gum. It helps prevent crystals from forming and provides a bit of chew, just like commercial brands. You can add more xanthan gum, if desired. If strawberry ice cream is not your favorite, try another berry or fruit. Meanwhile, enjoy!¬† Continue reading “Gluten Free Strawberry Ice Cream Recipe”

Decades ago, rhubarb was considered a vegetable. It actually is, but in 1947 it was reclassified as a fruit because that’s what people used it as. No matter the classification, rhubarb complements desserts well as its tartness balances out sweet¬†flavors. This strawberry rhubarb dessert¬†not only makes for a cooling summer treat, but a healthy one. Rhubarb contains Vitamin C, A and potassium. Potassium is a great way to fight the summer’s heat. It definitely adds a splash of color to the table and it’s fairly easy to make. I like it because it’s naturally gluten free. Enjoy!

It is traditionally served with biscotti, an Italian cookie. Being half Italian, I had never tried zabaglione, less than gluten free zabaglione. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
