Living with a lactose intolerant husband usually means we don’t have ice cream in the house. The ice cream maker had been retired and stored since we found out he had the intolerance. That is, it was retired until we realized we can make dairy-free ice cream. Delicious dairy-free ice cream. Ice cream that also caters to other special diets- gluten-free, paleo, vegan/vegetarian… Did I mention it’s also delicious?
