Dairy Free Ice Cream (Gluten free too!)

I am always on the look out for great Dairy-Free recipes for a friend who's daughter can not eat dairy.  I've been rather disappointed that I haven't found more recipes available, but here is one recipe that is simple and tastes great!  I made this without getting my ice cream freezer out and I was pleasantly surprised by the great taste! If your Lactose intolerant, try this!



Vanilla Dairy-Free Ice Cream
2 c. dairy substitute, divided 
(such as rice milk or soy milk)
2 c. marshmallows 
1/3 c. sugar
3 Tbsp. oil 
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 pkg. gelatin 


In a medium saucepan combine the marshmallows, sugar and one cup of dairy dairy substitute. Stirring constantly, bring mixture to a slow boil and continue cooking until sugar has dissolved and marshmallows have melted. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Meanwhile combine gelatin, the remaining cup of dairy alternative and the oil, allow to stand for five minutes. Using a hand mixer beat the gelatin, oil and dairy substitute until foamy. Add vanilla. Incorporate all the ingredients together and transfer to your ice cream maker. Process according to the manufacturer’s instructions for your maker.
Tip:  You can also pour the mix into pop cicle molds and freeze or into a glass dish and freeze until hard. Just be aware that freezing in the glass dish will allow the ice cream to be a little more crystalline in texture...
