Rice Dream Vanilla Ice Cream?

Recommended Posts

I don't think so. The reason being, that rice dream isn't gluten free, so I assume that ice cream made with it is not gluten free, either. Sorry to disappoint you.

Thanks for actually finding the answer, instead of making assumptions, like I did this time! Maybe I can even have it (even though not to find something else I can't have in the ingredients list is a long shot).

Good grief, I must crave something nice enough to turn my brain off completely sometimes, I am intolerant to RICE! Anyway, I am glad you can have it at least. ;)

I actually didn't like it at all, i thought it was pretty gross, and didn't taste at all like ice cream.

It's all personal taste.

maybe its because I'm not a big ice cream eater, I also only took 2 small bites and bought gluten-free and dairy free chocolate sause to go on top..the sause is yummy

Betty --So it's good? I've never had it, but have thought about trying it. I do like Sharon's Sorbet. It has cane sugar instead of corn syrup. But you can't put chocolate topping on it..... :D Are you feeling any better? Been worried about you!

I use toffutti brand (wildberry is my favorite one at least the one that tastes most like ice cream to me although the vanilla almond bark is pretty tasty as well) Sometimes I use So Delisous...it comes in mint chocolate and a really decent strawberry but the chocolate is pretty good too. but my favorite thing is to make my own smoothies from frozen fruit(usually berries) bananas, pinapple juice and cocunut cream (some brands are just cocunut milk with suger added)....wizz in the blender with some ice and eat up. Way better then ice cream...and healther too.

Oh yeah sometimes i get edey's whole fruit too.

i've had the rice dream...it is pretty decent... if you are looking for icecream alternatives--dairy free. maybe ck out the icecream recipe using Vance's dairy free. supposed to be pretty good--i can point you in the right direction if you are interested.

Hi Jen--I have that recipe! Now, I need to get an ice cream maker--have never owned one!!! I'm looking forward to trying it, though. Need to reorder Vances--have you tried it yet?

If you can handle Soy, try Turtle Mountain Soy creams!!!

http://www.turtlemountain.com

Please note that some of their "purely decadent" flavors (like the chocolate brownie) do have gluten in them. Though they test their products (ELISA test) for gluten, and other allerges, I have had reactions to their specialty flavor lines(particularly the Cherry Vanilla), I suspec these share the same lines, but I'm real sensitive. I still with their Soy Delicous flavors, chocolate, vanilla, and neapolitin. With these my family has not had any issues.

Especially the chocolate covered soy cream bars....I ate a box of them (There are 3 in a box) last night!

I love toffutti! So far, that's the best brand that I've found (wildberry is the best).

I have the recipe too, but am on a tight budget and really can't order it, paying the shipping etc. someday I hope

I tried soy ice cream [toffuti] I had terrible stomach pain, but when I make my rice dish with soy I'm ok..weird!

Betty--I know--the shipping is high! I've been talking to the manager of my local health food store in hopes of them carrying it. I printed off the info from the website and included the phone number. I'm becoming a pest :unsure:

It isn't BAD, it's just nowhere near Baskin Robbins or anything. I've eaten it.. still in freezer.. but it doesn't quite hit the spot the same as good ol' regular ice cream does.

Rice cheese tates like crap, so I guess rice-as-dairy doesn't really fly that well?

I've had the rice dream strawberry ice cream... it is okay as an ice cream substitute but only cause I haven't seen anything else I can have in any stores (can't have soy now)... doesn't compare to even a bad ice cream place on the jersey shore though but it's decent for what it is... could be worth a shot if you can't have soy/dairy and want to try something.. be careful about the flavor though cause I was checking one that had malted barley..

I've only tried the vanilla flavor of rice dream ice cream. I personally didn't care for it, it had a odd aftertaste for me.

I have looked for Sharon's Sorbets in my health food stores and they don't carry it. I wish they would, I went to the website and they aren't nationwide.

I might get an ice cream maker and start experimenting with my own recipes for ice cream's and sorbets.
