The two most common questions I get asked through the website are:
- Where can I get good gluten free bread?
- How do I make a dairy free hot chocolate?
I’m not sure I have the answer to either question but I have found solutions that work for me. When I have time I tend to make my own bread using a sourdough starter. Most of the time I buy my bread online from Wheat Free Bakery – I usually do a big order and put it in the freezer so I get the most out of the delivery charge.
Dairy free milk in hot drinks can also be tricky and it took me a while to get used to. I tend to drink soya milk and always heat it up before adding to a coffee so it doesn’t split. I have a milk steamer on my coffee machine and find that drinks like cappuccino and lattes work well with dairy free milk.
For dairy free hot chocolates I make my own chocolate syrup which I use as a base. It is really easy to make from a couple of ingredients and you don’t get any nasty powder bits left at the bottom of your drink.
