“I put this recipe together as I couldn't find any frozen desserts that I was able to eat due to my intolerance to a large number of foods and preservatives. This recipe is gluten free and dairy free, but contains Amines. You could try pears instead of the paw paw to take away the amines. It can serve 4 people - but I found it very hard to share :o)”
