This is not as much as recipe as a brilliant idea I had and wanted to share. FunFetti Lactose Free Ice Cream? Of course! I love, LOVE ice cream. And we all know confetti (aka funfetti) “flavor” is the best!
Update! Since I originally wrote this easy recipe back in 2016, a number of lactose-free ice cream flavors have become available. Not only flavors but brands.
There are so many incredible choices now! That said, this is still my favorite hack for making a yummy treat without the lactose.
I think the flavor is really just cake and sprinkle sugar, but that’s beside the point right now. I’ve recently noticed I feel healthier when I eat less lactose or avoid it altogether but I didn’t want to miss out on ice cream.
I finally found Breyers brand has a yummy vanilla lactose free ice cream and it is DELICIOUS!
But who wants just plain old vanilla? Even the good, natural ingredient vanilla could use a little sprucing up or excitement added once in a while. So let’s experiment. Today we’re starting simple and making funfetti ice cream in about 3 minutes or less.
FunFetti Lactose Free Ice Cream
I have no idea how I would make my own lactose free, real dairy, ice cream. I am positive you could mix the sprinkles into that yummy frozen banana “ice cream” if you’d like but it definitely will not be funfetti vanilla flavored at that point.
- Lactose free ice cream
- Rainbow sprinkles
- Grab the lactose free ice cream and scoop it into a big bowl.
- Dump a bunch of rainbow sprinkles into the ice cream.
- Stir until the sprinkles are mixed in.
Either put the ice cream back into the original container, or into a different freezer-safe container and return to the freezer. I only used about half of the ice cream in the container, so I used a place disposable storage container for my fancy funfetti ice cream.
That’s it folks! Maybe it’s not really enough to say this is a true recipe, but I do believe this is enough to get you out of that lactose free vanilla ice cream slump! While we’re talking about it… I hear there is such a think a coconut milk cream. I need to find some of that and then we can talk about a genuine lactose free recipe!
