This lactose free vanilla ice cream recipe is my first attempt at making my own ice cream. Since I don't have an ice cream machine I placed the mixture in a loaf pan tin because it is a metal bowl and they freeze faster than glass or plastic.
It's not my favourite recipe as the gelatine gives an unusual consistency but it's a start and the best part is it doesn't upset my stomach.
Lactose Free Vanilla Ice Cream
1 1/4 cups lactose free milk
1/2 cup caster sugar
2 teaspoons gelatine, dissolved in 2 tablespoons boiling water
1 1/4 cups lactose free cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine milk, sugar and gelatine mixture in a large saucepan, stir over low heat until sugar dissolves. Allow to cool then stir in cream and vanilla, chill for 2 hours.
Using an electric mixer, beat cream mixture for approximately 10 minutes or until the mixture has slightly increased in volume.
If you have an ice-cream maker place in the machine using the manufacturers instructions.
If you don't have an ice cream machine pour mixture into a shallow tray and freeze for 2 hours then, remove and beat with an electric mixer for 1-2 minutes, return to freezer until firm.
When ready grate lactose free chocolate on top and enjoy this lactose free vanilla ice cream recipe.
