Colourful Pancakes for Easter

Happy Easter! 2 years ago, I shared my Colourful Pancakes made with fruit and veggies instead of food colouring to achieve the bold colours. I thought I would share these recipes with you again this year. As I re-read this post, it has sparked more ideas on how to add even more colours naturally! Stay tuned….

Almond Milk

Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Fructose Free

Total Protein Count: 23 g Protein – Not suitable for PKU diets
1 litre / 4 cup = 5.75 g Protein

Almond Milk is by far a better option than animal milk as it is easier on your digestive system. Once you activate the nuts, it’s even gentler on your system. After the first time I made my own Almond Milk, I couldn’t believe how easy it was and swore I would never spend money on the store bought milk again. Read More

Toasted Muesli

Vegan, Low Protein (PKU) and Dairy Free

Total Protein Count: Not suitable for PKU diets
Serving Size = 1 cup
4 Serves

My husband loves Toasted Muesli. So much so that he orders it at cafes. (Which I find a bit strange because he has it nearly every day at home.) It is so easy to make, that you won’t want to waste money on pre-made / prepackaged muesli any longer.

‘Gluten Free’ Bircher Muesli

Vegan and Dairy Free

Total Protein Count: Not suitable for PKU diets
Serving Size = 1 cup
4 Serves

gluten free bircher muesli

How can an oat-based bircher muesli be gluten free? Well possibly one way would be the use sprouted oats. You see the packaging of spouted oats in health food stores listed as ‘gluten-free’, but is it really gluten-free? I did a bit of digging to find out the answer. Read More

Good Tummy Muesli – Gluten & Fructose Free

Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Low Fructose

Total Protein Count: Not suitable for PKU diets
Serving Size = 1 cup
4 Serves

charlotteats good tummy muesli

Muesli has been one of those foods that I have learned to ignore. It has never really sat well with my tummy and some of the earlier gluten free mueslis on the supermarket shelf tasted like cardboard and chewed a bit like plastic. There are now some really lovely gluten and fructose free products out now, but they can really be expensive. In saying that, it is still so nice in the summer to relax and have a light bowl of muesli and yoghurt. So I make my own. Read More
