Welcome all, fill your tum with my num num nums.

Gluten, Dairy & Legume free recipes; some by design, others are just nice recipes that happen to be! There are recipes and also shopping 'finds', all of which are good for free from people and all yummy whether you are following a particular diet or not! Just because something is 'free from' doesn't mean everyone can't enjoy it - and you may be surpised at how much happier your body is.

'Special' is how my friends describe my food and me, I don't think it's entirely complimentary!

Easy Creamy Chocolate Ice Nohm

Well I thought long & hard about what to put on as the first recipe, but in the end the sunshine and the amount of this I eat made it an easy choice!
This makes enough for 1 batch in my 1.1l icecream maker.

It is very creamy and oh so easy - 30 minutes tops to a bowl of chocolate ice cream! (probably a bit too easy for my waistline!)

Tin of coconut milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
Pinch of salt
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
Whisk all of the ingredients in a bowl. If you leave it for a bit the icecream is tastier and thicker but there is no harm in pouring it into your ice cream maker right away! Chocolate chips tipped in just as the mix is pretty much done are a good addition! Am going to start experimenting and I will add more options soon!
Just be warned once you have frozen it it does take a while to be scoopable so make sure you take it out before dinner!
