I debated closing the blog, but feel there are many valuable items listed for families struggling with food allergies, especially early on.

Dairy-Free Ice Cream

Can't begin to tell you how excited I was the other day when I gave my daughter her first ice cream cone.  I know, I know she's almost 2 1/2 and not had an ice cream cone.  Main reason being that I didn't know until very recently that there was dairy-free ice cream.  I bought Purely Decadent Ice cream that truly was delicious. I accidentally found it at our local grocery store.  That made me extra happy because our grocery store is hands down cheaper than Whole Foods.

Purely Decadent Ice Cream is made of coconut milk, which I like because soy tends to be the alternative for everything non-dairy.  With some of the research I've read, it says to be cautious of coconut because it may soon be one of the top food allergies to look for.  My daughter seemed fine.  Me on the other hand, I had a slight swelling of the throat (I have food allergies to raw fruits and vegetables).  Go figure.  But it was so good.  I plan on serving it at her next birthday party.

Here's a link for coupons.  I also see this product with coupons on


  1. My dairy-allergic daughter loves Purely Decadent made with coconut milk! Especially the gluten-free cookie dough flavor. Thank you for the coupon link! I can certainly use these!

  2. I love their coconut milk ice cream, and it is wonderful how mainstream it is becoming.

  3. I love this stuff too. We eat a lot of ice cream...pretty much daily. I've started making my own to keep the costs down!
