Vanilla Ice Cream:
Scald 2 cups light cream over low heat (you want to get a few bubbles but not to the point where it starts to boil). Stir in 3/4 cup sugar and 1/8 tsp salt. Let cool and stir in 1 tsp vanilla. Chill in refrigerator. Add 2 more cups cream (light or heavy) and chill overnight. Then make in ice cream maker.

Chocolate Ice Cream:
In medium saucepan combine 1/3 cup cocoa and 1 1/2 cups sugar. Stir in 1 12oz can of evaporated milk over medium heat until cocoa and sugar dissolve. Cool to room temperature. Add 1 tsp vanilla and 2 cups whipping cream. Chill in refrigerator overnight.

There is a book called "Ice Cream & Frozen Yogurt" by Mable and Gar Hoffman (Fisher Books, 2000, ISBN# 1-55561-247-4) that has quite a few eggless recipes and lots of sorbet recipes. I've just fooled around with the vanilla recipes by adding different things (for example, cinammon, chocolate chips, pureed strawberries, etc) to come up with a few different flavors.

My husband likes the ice cream right when it's finished in the ice cream maker (it's more like soft-serve) but the kids like the consistency better when I put it in the freezer for a few hours.

We got some fancy ice cream sundae glasses at a kitchen store and the kids really love eating it out of those! They also like eating ice cream cones and ice cream sandwiches made out of the ice cream and graham crackers or cookies.

I hope this is helpful to some other PA/nut/egg allergic children! You are not alone!

Can someone suggest a brand of ice cream cones or a recipe for ice cream cones that is safe?

I checked back in the spring and found the JOY cups to be safe for my peanut, tree nut, egg, sesame seed allergic child. He has some other foods he's allergic to that also didn't play factor in these cones. I don't buy the sugar cone with pointed ends I'll have to check back with email I recieved from them because I don't remember why.

I use this ice cream recipe with my PA and Egg allergic son. Works well.
2 cans Eagle Brand Milk
1/2 pint whipping cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 TBS vanilla
1 quart whole milk
For different flavors use can use different flavored cokes. We love using cream sodas. I sometimes add cocoa.

I would like to make my own ice cream at home and these recipes sound yummy! Could y'all recommend an ice cream maker that is fairly easy to use and not too involved? Thanks!

We bought a Krups "La Glaciere" ice cream maker for $59.99 at Williams Sonoma. We're really happy with it, although be careful not to stick a spoon in the tub (to sneak a taste before it's done!) while the machine is running - our original paddle broke because of that, and we had to replace it. But otherwise, it's pretty easy to use, it's fun, and the ice cream's awesome! Good luck!

Thank you, jh5000, for the recommending the ice cream maker. Fortunately, my brother gave us one for Christmas! The kids and I are looking forward to creating our own safe flavors.

The egg-free ice cream recipe sounds really yummy. But does anyone have one that is egg-free and milk-free? (Or does it cease to be ice cream at that point?!)

I have a recipe that is not really ice cream, but is still really good.
Very easy to make, and doesn't require an ice cream maker.
Take a can of pears. Put all pears in the blender. Use the juice from the can to get a good texture. All the juice is too much, but you do need about half of it.
You can add honey if you prefer it sweet. Once again taste as you go.
Freeze for a while. Once it's all frozen, let it melt a bit on the counter, and put in the blender again to crunch all the little ice parts. Make sure you do a good job too.
Freeze again. and blend again. You now have a good "ice cream", made entirely of pears, and a touch of honey.
With one kid allergic to eggs and peanuts, and the other one allergic to milk, I have no other choice.
This recipe can be done with canned peaches too, although I'll admit I throw in a bit of whipping cream with the peaches, for myself [img][/img]
I also like to plan 3 days for this recipe, I let it freeze for 24 hours each time, but it doesn't have to take that long. I just like to plan it that way
