(2) Gluten free cones exist
Yep, its true!! I’m not going to lie, its a bit like eating gluten free bread… not quite the same but better than missing out! Three to pick from: (1) Tesco Free From or (2) Eskal from Amazon and H&B. (3) Asda Free From
(3) Careful of CC when eating at an ice cream parlour
Two places for cross contamination risk: (1) There’s probably gluten-containing comes being use and (2) some of the ice creams might not be gluten free too.
Standard rules apply – are there crumbs from the cones everywhere? Will they use a clean scoop for you? Have they washed their hands/changed their gloves? Maybe can you even ask them to use a fresh tub of ice cream just incase some crumbs from a cone for a previous customer got into the tub you’re about to be served from?
(4) Want a bit of sauce of on your ice cream?
The Askey’s range is great! They’re all gluten free. The toffee sauce is the only one that contains dairy (yes the choc sauce doesn’t!!!!).
(5) Sprinkles aren’t always gluten free
They sometimes contain wheat. Grrrrr. Here’s one I’ve nearly slipped up on before.
(6) Dairy Free is a little harder – want to know my faves?
Here’s my guide to the best gluten AND dairy free ice creams around!
(7) Dairy free chocolate sprinkles exist!
Wahhooooooo!! Sneaky little find in Asda yesterday.
NB: this particular brand isn’t suitable for milk allergy sufferers but I’m just intolerant and wont be consuming these in any large quantity (or maybe I will :P), so I should be fine!
(8) Want some ice cream based recipes???!
- Artic roll – gluten, dairy free and loads of fun
- My Giant Nice-Cream Choc Ice – love love loveeeee this recipe!!!
Hope this is helpful! Jess x
