Non Dairy desserts, ice cream? Pumping/Breastfeeding for my baby boy who is in the NICU until Dec sometime (14 weeks premature). Dr's don't want me having any dairy, nuts, etc (in case of allergies). It's killing me at ice cream, cake, etc. HELP!

Meatlegs, I wondered why I hadn't "seen" you lately. I don't have a recipe, but I have lots of prayers going out to you and your little one.
Oct. 14, 2012 1:27 pm
So good to see you, you have been missed. Thinking of you and your little one at this time, pray for his continued growth and strength! Sorry I'm not a big dessert person, I'm more of a Pepperidge Farm frozen coconut cake kind of gal! You take care. Hey, how about italian ice????

Hi Meatlegs! Glad to hear you delivered safely, albeit sooner than you expected. Keep us posted, ok? I'm 36 weeks and on bed rest but so thankful to have made it this far. A great ice cream substitute is simply to peel some bananas, cut into chunks and freeze. When frozen, put them into the food processor and puree until smooth. I usually add some peanut butter and honey too, just to make it more interesting. It tastes awesome and you'd never know there was no dairy!
Oct. 14, 2012 1:29 pm
Best wishes to you and your baby. Fresh fruit would be a good choice.
Oct. 14, 2012 1:29 pm
It does take some time for the bananas to become smooth but just be patient and keep scraping down the sides and you'll get there. Good stuff!
Oct. 14, 2012 1:30 pm
Oh, I just saw your 'no nuts' comment. Skip the peanut butter then. But a little honey is good.

If you have a Trader Joe's nearby, they have some non-dairy frozen desserts that are quite good. Tofutti (if you can have soy products) comes to mind. Prayers and good wishes for your new little one.

The frozen banana ice cream is what I was going to recommend, I do slices on a silpat in the freezer. It really does taste like ice cream. I serve it with gingerbread waffles. Prayers to you and the baby!

Thanks ev 1 baby is doing very well, he has gone through a lot though! I may try the banana thing this week. & will look for TOfuti. I can have soy. I do not like soy milk, though =(

I guess almond milk is out, how about rice milk? I've never had it but a lactose intolerant friend who cannot have soy, swears by it.

Meatlegs, I tried tofutti in the past and was surprised that it was as good as it was. It is, however, a tad expensive (and small container). So treat yourself and savor it. (i liked to berry kind the best!)
Oct. 14, 2012 4:32 pm
Also, congrats on your new baby. I am praying for you both and sending positive energy and well wishes your way! Hugs!

In the organic section of my grocery store, they have dairy free "ice cream" options made with soy or coconut milk. Maybe yours would also. Best wishes to you and your little one, congratulations!

Would suggest that you get your doctor to refer you to a nutricionist to advise you on what you can have to settle your cravings. The stuff isout there, you just need to find out what it is! DD#2 is lactose intolerant, but can have goat cheese, goat milk, cheddar 7 years or older, Normandy butter and need to define the problem more closely to arrive at a solution.

I created this punch recipe when I went looking for a punch recipe for my Baby Shower. I really wanted blue punch because I was having a boy this time. The ice cream melts somewhat and turns the punch a beautiful baby blue color leaving frothy blue and white clouds floating on top. Everyone thought it tasted great and asked for the recipe. Its also very adaptable to your taste. The sky's the limit. Try any flavor or color of unsweetened drink mix in place of the blue.

Prayers for you and the baby. My niece went through similar with her first and I know how rough it was. Does yogurt fall in the same category as dairy? If you can have it Greek yogurt with fruit is a real treat.

Cranberries, raspberries, and cherry juice make a pretty red sorbet with a sprightly flavor.
