We have all heard the adage, "I Scream, You Scream, we all scream for ice cream." But what if you are lactose intolerant and cannot partake at your local ice cream shop or from the ice cream trolleys touring your neighborhood. Why not make your own frozen dairy- free treats, so when the craving comes, it is simply a reach into your deep freeze. I love to play around with flavors and this one was a winner at our dessert table last week.
