Craving Something Creamy (any Ideas?)

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm in week 7 and having some serious cravings for something creamy. In the old days, pudding, ice cream, french toast, or yogurt would have hit the spot. Now, I've got dairy allergy, egg allergy, Celiac, and cutting out soy and beans because of the gas. I'm willing to use a little bit of soy if I need to since I'm not actually allergic to it. Maybe 1/8th of a serving. Nuts are OK for me. Cocoa powder is lovely!

Can you help this craving? Bring out the fat for these recipies. My weight is holding it's own and I could use a little dietary splurge. :D

I just recently found So Delicions Coconut Milk yogurt at Whole Foods. YUM! It's pretty tasty, not the same as yogurt, but creamy. You can also try their soy ice cream or their coconut milk ice cream. They have a chocolate peanut butter that is absolutely delicious!

I can't have fat, so my suggestions are relatively low fat...BUT I know how to easily fatten em up!

I crave something creamy every day, which is why I eat Bob Redmill's Creamy Brown Rice Farina every morning. You could easily fatten that up by cooking it with coconut milk or coconut oil.

I also have a creamy baked yellow sweet potato every night (not to be confused with a stringy orange yam!). You could fatten that up (and make it even creamier) with some soy butter!

Hope that helps :)

Wow you folks are quick!

I've got to get down to Whole Foods to try the coconut milk ice cream. That sounds perfect! I'll plan on getting a stash next time I go. It is 45 minutes away, so it is a rare treat when I go. I've tried the vanilla almond milk. I like the flavor a lot, but it is thin. It does not have that creamy texture I'm craving. Is Rice ice cream OK? I thought I read that rice milk was off limits.

Bob's Farina, huh? I have no idea what farina is, but I'm guessing it is hot cereal kind of like cream of wheat. I've been eating his might tasty gluten-free hot cereal, but a change of pace will be needed soon.

You have me thinking about Coconut and Chocolate. There is serious potential there. Oh, Oh! Coconut, Chocolate, Almond milk, the blender, and sweetner. Or Coconut, Almond milk, pumpkin and cinnamon/nutmeg.

Thanks for the inspiration. If you have more ideas, I would love them. Creamy is my number 1 craving even when I could have dairy.

Can you have Jell-O?

Do you have an ice cream maker? I have a recipe for ice cream using Jell-O or pudding.

How about smoothies? Fruit, juice or any milk, ice.

Google smoothies, pudding and dairy free ice cream on here, there are lots of recipes.

How about guacamole? Not sweet but really creamy. ;)

I found a box of Chocolate Jello Cook and Serve. I have Strawberries and ice and Orange Juice. I don't think I'll add the orange juice. My almond milk is all out, but I think I have shredded coconut. If not, I'll toss in some pecans. I had a vegan friend make chocolate ice cream with avacado as the base years ago. It was really good. Reminded me of a thicker Frosty. I couldn't taste the avacado at all. I wish I knew I was Celiac at that time. I would have held on better to the recipe. I think I'll toss in the 1/2 avocado I have in the fridge. I'll let you know how it turns out.

OK, I'm back from the blender. 1/2 package Chocolate cook and serve Jello, 1 tray ice, 1 pint strawberries, 1/2 avacado, 1 Tbsp cocoa powder, 1/8 cup sugar. The avocado was a definate repeat. I can only taste chocolate and strawberries. The Jello is a bit grainy in texture. I think I could get used to it though. I added the cocoa powder and sugar because my combo needed extra chocolate. Definately a thick and creamy treat that hits the spot. Oh, and I blended in a bunch of pecans.

Thank you for the brainstorming.

I recently had the Pacific Foods carrot cashew ginger soup, it's dairy free and BOY was it creamy! And quite yummy as well. And gluten free, it says so right on the box!

I'll keep thinking of foods that are creamy. Sorry, I'm not dairy free, so I'm a little out of the loop on this one.

Oh, and the BRAND Rice Dream isn't safe, they use barley in processing but they still put gluten-free on the label. I would guess other stuff would be ok. We have coconut bars in the freezer.

I found a review of gluten/egg/dairy free ice cream at this blog I don't know if all of them are soy free, but I know that "rice divine" brand doesn't...at least the vanilla doesn't. You could get some vanilla, and then add some sort of sauce to it...I like warm peach preserves or some other sort of fruit compote. Yum! My son loves the Rice Divine ice cream, and he's pretty picky about even desserts...he won't eat it unless he really likes it, and he's gone through a whole container by himself in the last few days...so that's a good sign!
