Coconut Vanilla Bean Ice Cream with “Caramel” Sauce from The Tasty Alternative

Many gluten-free folks also eat dairy free. Just as when one goes gluten free, going dairy free tends to make one think that certain recipes and dishes—or at least palatable versions of them—are in the past. Ice cream is one of those dishes. But Amber at The Tasty Alternative shows you that there does not have to be any deprivation with dairy-free and even refined sugar-free ice cream.

Take a look at her Coconut Vanilla Bean Ice Cream with Caramel Sauce for example. Medjool dates and a little raw honey are some of the ingredients that Amber uses to work the magic that is clearly present in this recipe. Best of all? Amber says that this recipe is not only delicious, but it’s so fast and easy to make that she makes it several times a week. Her family loves it!

  1. Hi Shirley,

    I just returned from the Thanksgiving break and going through my emails and saw you launched your site!! I’m in awe of you my friend and all you do for the community! One being bringing us all together. You’re amazing. And thank you so much for featuring my SCD “caramel” sauce. This was such a treat when I was on the SCD full time. I hope others on the SCD (or Paleo/GAPS) also enjoy this treat. :-)

    Hugs to you,

    P.S. And I hope you had a great Thanksgiving with no gluten scares!!

    • Hi Amber–Thank you for your enthusiasm and support! I am so very happy to be able to share some of your amazing recipes here! :-) Thanks, too, for the reminder that this is an SCD-compliant recipe as well as paleo and GAPS friendly. You are so good to all who are following those protocols to give them this amazing combo treat! ūüėČ

      Thanksgiving was great. Hope yours was, too! I was in control as chef/hostess! :-) xo,

    • Hi Michele–Welcome! Congrats on being gluten free! Yes, it is overwhelming at first, but you’ll be surprised how quickly you will get the hang of it, and certainly having a few no-fail desserts under your belt will help tremendously. :-) Many, many thanks for your very kind words! I look forward to seeing you here at AGFD and over at gfe, too. Be sure to click on the tab under the header on gfe that says Getting Started.
