My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 15 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.

Egg Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free Tofu Peach Ice Cream

Jazlyn was craving Tofu Banana Yogurt, but we were out of bananas. We decided to try it with peaches instead. The bananas definitely helped to make the yogurt creamier, so we decided to try freezing it into ice cream. Jazlyn loved it topped with chocolate syrup. After being frozen, it became a little too hard to scoop, so I softened it briefly in the microwave.

Tofu Peach Ice Cream

14 oz firm tofu
3/4 - 1 can peaches
1/2 - 1 tsp vanilla extract
2 - 4 tbsp sugar, or as desired for sweetness

Place all of the ingredients into the blender then process until smooth and thoroughly combined. Eat immediately as a yogurt or freeze into ice cream.
* If the ice cream is too hard to scoop, microwave it briefly to soften.
* For an extra treat, top with chocolate syrup.
