Ice Cream Without the Cream? Or Sugar? Sure Thing

Print Friendly

icecreamEveryone loves ice cream. But not everyone can eat it.

For those who are lactose intolerant, ice cream may seem like a forbidden pleasure. But it doesn’t need to be. The top recipe is a chocolate-y treat that is cool and creamy, without the cream.

The second recipe is great for diabetics and for those who want to cut down on sugar.

Lactose Intolerant’s Delight

2 (12-ounce) cans evaporated goat’s milk
1 (6-ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup lactose-free milk

Place 2 cans of evaporated goat’s milk in the refrigerator for 2 hours to chill.

In a large bowl, combine the ingredients and whisk together until the sugar dissolves. Pour mixture into an ice cream machine and churn according to manufacturer’s instructions (approximately 25-30 min.).

Serve immediately or store in a air tight container in the freezer.

Makes 2 quarts.

  1. Hi John, I commed you for the article, but I need to correct some info: goat milk does contain lactose, BUT the molecules are smaller thus easier to digest. Goat is most like human milk, also the nutrition is more available than in cow milk. If you’re lactose intolerant there’s an 80% chance goat milk won’t bother you. I like it because cow milk attacks my sinuses and gives me a headache.
    I’ve done a lot research on this; I make goat milk gelato and distribute in the Philadelphia, PA area. I hope to be on Regional w/ pint packs and on SYSCO’s ChefX programin the next couple months. So look for my product
