chocolate & marshmallow sundae

My readers know that my youngest has severe food allergies: nut, dairy and egg (unless baked into recipes). He’s such a sweet little boy and rarely complains, but I can’t stand for him to feel left out so I’m always looking for ways to adapt recipes so that he can enjoy them too.

My latest is this fabulous Chocolate Chunk & Marshmallow Sundae recipe in Kraft Foods most recent issue of Food & Family.

We’ve only found one soy ice cream that he really likes and a small pint costs $6 so when I saw this pudding based sundae idea I was ecstatic to give it a try! You can hop over to Kraft to see the original recipe and the how to details, but here’s my twist to make it dairy free:

  • 2 pkgs Jell-O Chocolate Instant Pudding
  • 2 1/2 cups cold soy milk
  • 1 cup Jet-Puffed Miniature Marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup dairy free chocolate chips (I used Divvies)
  • Waffle cone cups

Whisk your pudding and milk until smooth, add the marshmallows and chocolate and then freeze for 4 hours. Serve in waffle cone cups. 

 It was a huge hit for a little boy that typically only gets vanilla ice cream.

As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake and create!

    Thank you for this lovely recipe! It’s always great to see alternate allergy-free takes on fun food. It’s heartbreaking to see your kid at a party when they would love to have a simple thing everyone else is having.
    I nearly cried at a birthday celebration recently when he begged me for a cake pop.

    My son is allergic to both dairy and soy, so ice cream is a particular challenge. We’ve been making ice cream with Coconut Milk lately and thought you might enjoy seeing this option! We adapted the recipe into chocolate (no pumpkin or spices; cocoa powder and vanilla instead) … and it was a huge hit amongst a group of party-seasoned 2 to 4 year olds. My lil guy beamed when we served “his ice cream!”

      Oh my Sue! I know exactly how you feel! My guy is five now so he no longer cries, but he still gets that left out look on his face and I just can’t stand it! And thank you for the recipe tip! I’ll have to check it out.

      Best of luck to you and your little one. I pray he outgrows his allergies someday!
