A Gluten-Free Day has two dairy and gluten free ice cream recipes with photos documenting each major step. I have not tried them, yet, but I hope to do so soon!

Here is the first of the two recipes:

Cardamom ice cream

makes a bit over one litre of ice cream

-1 cup or 2,5 dl sugar (unrefined if possible, use 2 cups of sugar for a sweeter result)

-12 egg yolks

-2 vanilla pods

-3 flat tbls ground cardamom

-800 ml coconut milk (one can is 400ml, so it is two cans)

-400 ml coconut cream (you can measure it with the coconut milk can)

- 1-2 tbls of alcohol, rum for example, to prevent ice crystals (this is optional)

Separate the egg yolks and measure the sugar, place them into a bowl.

Whisk them together until they become creamy. Leave aside.

Measure the coconut milk and coconut cream into a saucepan. Measure the ground cardamom into the saucepan. Split the vanilla pods and scrape the seeds from the inside and place into the saucepan. Chop up the emptied pods and place them also into the saucepan.

Heat them together on medium heat, the mixture should not boil, just warm it.

Then pour the warm coconut milk mixture into the bowl were you have the creamed eggs and sugar. Whisk them together.

Pour everything back to the saucepan and place it on medium heat.

This is the only difficult part of the ice cream process, you should not overcook the mixture, but if you do, it is not the end of the world, it will just taste a bit more like eggs. After a couple of times you will notice it more easily.

You have two options with the custard, either wait for the bubbles to disappear, it is done when the bubbles disappear. The second option would be to stick a spoon into the mixture and draw a line on the middle of the spoon, if the line sticks for a while, the custard is done.

Place the mixture into a container and leave to cool into the fridge. When it has cooled down place it into your ice cream machine and follow the manufacturers’ instructions.
