Ice cream is a delicious summer treat to help you cool down, and there are plenty of gluten-free ice cream options available. But ice cream cones are a different matter. Most of us just skip the cone, though there are a few gluten-free versions available, but another option is to make your own cones with this waffle cone recipe.
Today’s recipe (which comes from So Delicious) does require a waffle cone maker. I don’t personally own one, but if I had young kids who really liked having their ice cream in a cone, I would definitely buy one.
When it comes to buying gluten-free ice cream, look for obvious signs of gluten such as chocolate chip cookie dough. Most flavors of most brands are gluten free, but always read the label to be sure. You could also make your own homemade ice cream.
If you’re dairy free, don’t worry. I basically follow the above recipe but use dairy free milk. But you don’t have to make your own. So Delicious has a variety of gluten and dairy free ice cream flavors (even gluten-free versions of cookie dough and cookies ‘n cream!). My absolute favorite is the Salted Caramel Cluster cashew milk ice cream, and below you’ll have an opportunity to win some free product coupons from So Delicious so you can try it for yourself!
Before I get to the recipe, I want to let you know that I’m joining a group of lovely gluten-free bloggers for an Ice Cream Social themed event. Each blogger has a recipe and giveaway to share with you, so be sure to check them all out! You’ll find links below the recipe.
