Do you have a dairy intolerance and are looking for a delicious dairy-free recipe to enjoy before the summer is out? Well, take a look at these Dairy-Free White Chocolate Raspberry Ice-Cream bars, a delicious recipe devised by Alisa Fleming.
These easy-to-make and easy on the eye, dairy-free ice cream bars are a real treat to enjoy. They also do not contain gluten or any of the other big eight allergens, creating the perfect allergy-friendly treat just for you! The ice cream bars recipe contains cocoa butter which puts some people off, but it is actually dairy-free! A creamy base of white chocolate, cocoa butter is also delicious!
But why is cocoa butter important? Well, it makes it thicker meaning it is more like ice cream, but it also adds flavour. Obviously, those individuals with cocoa intolerance or allergy should avoid this recipe, but other than that, you’re in for a treat. If you are not sure what ingredients you should be consuming, then take a look here about the ins and outs of ordering and understanding your intolerance test results.
If you are trying to hunt down cocoa butter down in the supermarket, then there is another option. You can also follow this option if you are reluctant to add cocoa to your dairy-free treat. When following the recipe below, simply add an additional 1/2 cup of oil and leave the cocoa butter out.
Depending on your intolerances and allergies, you may be reluctant to add kinds of milk, even though they are labelled as dairy-free. Allergic Living author Alisa Fleming uses Pea Milk Beverage, believing this is the best choice. However, some people may be allergic to peas, meaning allergy-friendly milk beverages will work. One of the best things about this recipe is that it is completely devoid of all the top eight allergens.
Start off with 3 cups of unsweetened pea milk beverages, all of which are lukewarm, not boiling hot! Add 6-8 tbsp of sugar into 3/4 of a cup of unsweetened pea milk. Then you can add 3 oz of cocoa-butter from the shops, or if you are skipping this out, add a bit more neutral-tasting oil (1/4 cup). Adding 1 tbsp of pure vanilla flavouring and a big pinch of salt, you can them add 1/4 of tbsp xanthan gum. (This is more popular over in America than it is here) but if you can get your hands on it, it is highly recommended.
2 cups of raspberries (or strawberries) depending on your tastes and then add a dairy-free, buttery spread. The dairy-free bit is obviously the most important part of this delicious recipe, so it is important you choose dairy-free butter. Add one tablespoon of honey and also 2 cups of gluten-free cracker crumbs.
Method for your dairy-free recipe
Add your chosen milk beverage choice alongside the 3/4 cup of sugar, cocoa butter, oil, vanilla and salt in a blender. Mix it all together for about 2 minutes, add the gum and blend for one minute. Find yourself a blender, which you can buy from most supermarkets and blend again for one minute. Leave it then to be refrigerated overnight. Put raspberries or strawberries, and the remaining 6-8 tablespoons of sugar and add this to the blender. Essentially, we are pureeing everything until all the raspberry seeds are left behind.
Then, once everything is pureed in, you can bring the sauce to boil. Cook and whisk consistently, for around a period of 5 minutes until it becomes a thick syrup consistency. Pour the sauce into a container, cover and refrigerate and get ready to use. Find a medium bowl, whisk it together with a buttery spread and honey until becomes it smooth. Sprinkle the crumbs and stir with a fork until the crumbly dough is formed. This is the most recommended way of ensuring you get the best flavouring and can enjoy your meal.
Then, get a baking tray and lay it with parchment paper, ensuring you will catch any grease that slips of the food. Freeze until it is ready to use. Blending cold ice cream mixture is the next step. On top of the crust, you should spread the ice cream mixture and swirl it in. Freeze until it becomes solid, this can take up to 3 hours. Then you are ready, and it can serve up to 9 people, but some people will want to save this delicious treat all for themselves!
