About Me

Welcome to my blog - my ramblings about trying to find healthy, affordable gluten free food in St. John's, NL.
Despite being gluten free, I love to try new products and am always interested to hear about new places to eat.
I try to help the environment and purchase organic products where possible.

Enjoy :)

Home made Dairy Free, Strawberry Ice Cream (and it's gluten free and vegan)

Last weekend I tried out a few new recipes – including home made non-dairy strawberry ice cream!

It’s really easy to make: 1 can of coconut milk, 2 cups of strawberries, ¼ cup of honey, and a tsp of vanilla. Blend together and let sit in the fridge for 6 hours or overnight.

Pour the mixture in the ice cream maker and voila! Awesome homemade ice cream without preservatives or dairy!

The texture is very similar to sorbet, very light, but loaded with strawberry taste. There is a hint of coconut, but nothing overpowering - if you are not a huge coconut lover.

You can freeze the remaining in a glass jar in the freezer and let stand for 10 minutes when you want seconds!

You could make this with any fruit I am sure – I think my next batch will be blueberries….

  1. Hi Janelle,
    Thank you for your blog. My family and I are traveling to Newfoundland on vacation from the United States in a couple weeks. I am newly on a reduced gluten diet and have appreciated your restaurant suggestions for when we are in St John's. Do you have a suggestion for a grocery with a good selection of gluten free products? I am looking forward to checking out the Nourish bakery. Thanks and take care,
