Make a Cow Milk Free Ice Cream Sandwich Cake
Cow Milk Free Ice Cream Sandwich Cake is Fast and it Tastes Great!
Have you seen those neat recipes for ice cream sandwich cakes that are floating around? Have you wanted to make one, but you are stuck with a cow's milk allergy?
My guess is that all of those recipes are tasty. As a matter of fact, in case you are not familiar with them I have posted a few at the end of this hub to make it easy for you to check out this amazing culinary concept.
However, ice cream can be one of the worst offenders out there for those who cannot consume cow's milk products. It's true that for some the reaction is worse than for others, but the symptoms can come fast and hard, and they can vary from unpleasant to dangerous.
This food allergy requires saying no to many recipes, but there's no need to despair! With great options like my ice cream cake recipe you can provide yourself and your family with fun and delicious party desserts.
Why Make Cow Milk Free Ice Cream Sandwich Cake?
For someone who does not know what their problem is, they may think they are dying of some sudden disease if there is a quick reaction to a product with cow's milk in it. The consequences are far more than just puzzling, they can be debilitating.
That said, you can see why a person who knows what the problem is would treat cow’s milk as if it is poison. Anything with the substance in it is a bête noire and avoided like the proverbial plague. It must be continually guarded against because it is everywhere.
You can also understand why a person with this allergy is a happy camper when they are offered a dessert that is very similar to those luscious ice cream styled treats everyone else can eat.
• SO Delicious Minis have allowed me to create one happy dessert that almost anyone can enjoy, but there is a word of caution for those who follow a GF diet:
We avoid large amounts of gluten because modern food processing adds way too much of it to products, and I have come to believe that the extra gluten is at the root of some health problems that are becoming more common.
While this ice cream cake recipe is cow's milk free and healthier than most other ice cream cake recipes, just for your information, it is not a GF recipe. For those who can eat some gluten, this dessert is a special treat.
Okay, I’m guessing that by now you just want to see my recipe for faux ice cream cake so here it is:
