Low FODMAP stracciatella ice cream
I wanted to make homemade ice cream for a very long time already, but because I thought it was very difficult, I never really got to do it. A long time ago, I once tried to make ice cream, but that tasted more like shaved ice than nice creamy ice cream. A while back, I gave making ice cream from scratch a real try and it turned out wonderful. I made delicious low FODMAP stracciatella ice cream!
This low lactose ice cream only has 4 ingredients and is super creamy and yummy. I used the following ingredients for the ice cream:
- Whipping cream
- Condensed milk
- Vanilla extract
- Dark chocolate
I used the lactase drops from the brand Disolact to make the cream and the condensed milk low in lactose. These drops contain the enzym lactase and you can use them to make milk products low in lactose so that they are suitable for most people with a lactose-intolerance.
These drops work very well for non-sour dairy products, such as milk, condensed milk and cream. They can’t be used for sour dairy products, such as yoghurt. You simply add some drops to the cream and condensed milk. Stir well and put them in the fridge for at least 24 hours. After 24 hours at least 8o% of the lactose will be gone. If you want even less lactose in your product, you can add some extra drops or let the drops do their work a bit longer.
For most people with a lactose-intolerance, the amount of lactose in the dairy products will be low enough after 24 hours to consume it without problems.
Making low lactose ice cream
Making the ice cream hardly costs any time. You just have to be a little patient. You have to wait 24 hours for the lactase drops to do their work and after you have made the ice cream, it has to go into the freezer for 6 hours until you can eat it. I prepared the condensed milk and cream with the lactase drops in the evening. The next evening I could make the ice cream and put it in the freezer. The next day, I had a box full of delicious low FODMAP stracciatella ice cream!
I really loved the ice cream. You can best take it out of the freezer 10 minutes before you want to serve it and then it will be super creamy and soft. My boyfriend, who doesn’t have to eat lactose-free or low FODMAP, loved it too. The box of ice cream was gone within a few days!
Making different ice cream flavours
I choose to make low FODMAP stracciatella ice cream because stracciatella is one of my favourite ice cream flavours. But you can decide for yourself which flavour you want. You can choose to only add vanilla extract or fresh vanilla for vanilla ice cream. If you add some cacao to the ice cream, you will get chocolate ice cream.
I also think it will be wonderful to add a lactose-free caramel sauce or salted caramel sauce to the ice cream. And then with some chopped peanuts and dark chocolate to make snickers ice cream. Yumm! There are enough options.
