Gluten and Dairy Free Choc Nut Granola

Hello everyone

I’ve started doing a bit of work on my website updating some of the photographs and graphics that I have.  When I started my website the recipes worked well but some of the photographs aren’t the best.

Luckily I live a couple of minutes walk from this beautiful bay and spent a couple of hours in the sun working on this week’s posts and a plan for the photos I want to change.  I also had a lemon and raspberry cupcake with me to eat – I’ll share the recipe soon.

I often make my own gluten free breakfast cereal as it is so simple, and cheaper, to make.  As I can pick what I put in it I also enjoy the variety as there is often not a great choice in the supermarket.

I’ve also made a little video to accompany the photographs – if you like it please subscribe to my YouTube channel where I’ll upload all my new tutorial videos: FreeFromFavourites YouTube Channel

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Mocha Ice Cream

Hello everyone

Since it has been sunny for a few weekends in a row I thought it was about time to bust out the ice cream churner and whip up some new recipes.

There are several ways to make dairy free ice cream from using bananas to make it creamy or using coconut milk as the base.  This recipe is based on how you would traditionally make ice cream with an egg custard base.

I’ve used Alpro cream and milk as dairy free substitutes and dark vegan chocolate for the rich chocolatey flavour.  Trust me it tastes like the real deal.

What is your favourite flavour of ice cream and what flavour would you like a gluten and dairy free recipe for?

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Mexican Hot Chocolate Cupcakes with Cinnamon Frosting

Hello

I’m going through a little phase of making some new cupcake recipes.  Tonight I’m going to bake some lemon and raspberry cupcakes to take home when I visit my parents tomorrow.  Fingers crossed they will work out well and I can share the recipe with you guys.

Today’s cupcakes are based on a hot chocolate (dairy free) that I had in a Mexican restaurant.  It was made with real dark chocolate, almond milk but the exciting flavour twist was that it contained a good pinch of both cinnamon and chilli.  Maybe it sounds a bit odd but trust me it totally worked and took the hot chocolate to a whole new level.

So, these cupcakes have  chocolate sponge with a pinch of chilli and a beautiful cinnamon frosting to bring together the flavours of that special Mexican hot chocolate.

What is your favourite cupcake flavour and do you have any suggestions for cupcakes you would like to see a gluten and dairy free recipe for?

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Fresh Summer Pasta Salad

Hello

Tdoay’s recipe is for a lovely fresh summer vegetable pasta salad.  It is perfect as a side dish at barbecues, for a picnic or  for your packed lunch at work.  I’ve also had a go at making another little video to accompany this recipe.  It will take me a while to get the knack of making these videos so stick with me while I get them right.

Gluten and Dairy Free Strawberry & Apple Chia Pudding

Hello

I’ve shared  few chia pudding recipes with you before that I’ve made with a combination of dairy free milk and natural yoghurt.  This time I’ve tried something a bit different and soaked the chia seeds in the natural juices from gently stewed strawberries and apples.  Once I refrigerated overnight and topped with some dairy free yoghurt and a sprinkle of homemade gluten free granola I had a perfect summer breakfast.

Fingers crossed this warm weather continues and we are finally on the way to summer.  If not at least I’ve managed to have one barbecue this year.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Chicken and Pepper Pasta Bake

Hello everyone

With all the excitement of posting my first recipe video yesterday I totally forgot I promised to share this chicken and pepper pasta bake recipe this week.  So rather a bit late than never here it is.

It has been an up and down week with the website – for some reason the admin section was broken for a few days and I couldn’t log in to make any changes.  After an hour long phone call to the web site provider it was eventually fixed with nothing lost. It has taught me a lesson to better backup my website.

Enjoy!
