    If you are allergic to milk chances are that u hv an egg allergy too check it out. But if you are lactose intolerant .. This is ok

    MakerBox (author)Sunglowart2015-05-22

    I'm allergic to milk and have tried lactose free milk but no different and have had no trouble with eggs?! :)

    Sunglowart (author)MakerBox2015-05-22

    If you allergic tho milk ,lactose free milk will not help bcoz it has same milk proteins in it .only lactose is replaced or split. Then u will need to replace milk with rice, almond, coconut etc.

    I know, I currently have oat drink and almond milk.

    For vegan friendly, omit the egg yolks and increase the amount of cornstarch. The revised recipe for vegan is as follow:

    Ingredients:
    13.5 fl.oz (400 ml) thick coconut milk
    5 fl.oz (150 ml) water
    2 tbsps cornstarch
    1/2 cup powdered sugar (icing sugar)
    1/4 tsp salt

    Instructions:
    Combine all ingredients and mix well, then stir the mixture over medium-low heat.
    Reduce to low heat when mixture starts to thicken. Continue stirring until you have a slightly thick custard which can coat the back of a spoon. Then, continue with step 5.

    Dairy free ice cream is called sorbet. Other than that, good idea.
