gluten-free, dairy-free ice-cream at home

        I recently received an ice-cream maker as a gift. And what a gift it has been. Since I have been dairy-free for close to 2 years it's been awhile since I have been able to enjoy ice-cream. Which hasn't been easy because I have a sweet tooth, so I would cheat anytime people were having ice-cream and eat a little, then regret it later.. Even sherberts & sorbets usually have skim milk in them. 
        I've been experimenting with all kinds of flavors and these are a few that have been hits with my family that have no allergies.

Mint & York peppermint patty  

3 cups of original almond milk
1/2 cup of sugar or sweetener
1 teaspoon peppermint extract 

Combine all ingredients, place in ice-cream maker for 25-30 minutes. Add 2 crushed york peppermint patties (or 1/4 cup of chocolate chips). I really like the peppermint patties because it adds another level to mint & chip.

1 1/2 cups original almond milk
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1/4 cup Orange juice
1/2 cup of sugar or sweetener
1 banana sliced 
1/4 cup of crushed pineapple or diced fresh pineapple

Mix juice, milks and sugar together well, incorporate the fruit and pour into machine.

I'm excited, I'll be able to enjoy sweet treats on a hot I have to work on making a gluten-free waffle cone recipe.
