My name is Pamela Aflalo. A few years ago, my sweet daughter Sophie had developed some serious health issues, with frequent colds that often led to breathing difficulties and coughing fits. She was on a cocktail of allergy medicines, missed weeks of school and was suffering terribly. It was heart breaking for my husband and me to see her chronically sick and we hated to give her medicine that didn’t seem to help anyway. Sophie was sick and exhausted. We were desperate.
I started looking for alternative approaches to rid Sophie of her allergies and her dependency on ineffective medicine. I found increasingly more evidence of a link between allergies and dairy products, so I eliminated them from Sophie’s diet. Within weeks, Sophie was symptom free. Since then, she has not taken any medication and hasn’t missed a single school day because of sickness. She is a healthy, happy and ridiculously active child.
But Sophie missed her ice cream! So with my culinary training from the Natural Gourmet Institute and my background as a researcher, I set out to make the most delicious and healthy non-dairy ice cream for Sophie. Many batches later, Nutty Bunny was born and named after my nickname for Sophie.
