With the change in weather, maybe you’re looking for some good recipes for cool weather, like me. Here are some great recipes that are food allergy-friendly and ideal for colder weather. As always, make sure these recipes are a fit based on your food allergens.
After being outside
Is there anything better than coming back into a warm house after building a snowman, skiing, sledding, ice-skating or just being out in the cold? Yes, if coming back into the house also involves a hot drink! Here are some ideas that don’t involve common allergens:
- Heat up some apple cider, serve with a cinnamon stick
- Brew up some peppermint, decaf chai, or herbal citrus tea
- Make hot cocoa from scratch using a milk substitute – this recipe looks tasty
- Make an allergen-free hot chocolate using Neocate Junior, Chocolate and serve in a thermos
- Add a drop of peppermint oil or artificial peppermint flavor for a seasonal twist!
It can be hard to get out of bed when it’s cold outside. A nice, hot breakfast makes at least a little easier (and slippers don’t hurt!). Here are a few ideas that we’d love to wake up to:
- Add cut fruit and cinnamon to hot oatmeal
- Toast and enjoy a Pumpkin Banana Flourless Muffin
- Fruity Delight
- Fruity Tutti Pancakes
- Blueberry Scones
- Sugar & Spice Apple Cereal
- Cinnamon Breakfast Bread or French Toast (In our Food Allergy Cookbook)
Nothing hits the spot when the days are short like a hearty soup. Here are a few we’d be happy to pull a chair up to at the dinner table:
- Tomato Basil Soup
- Butternut Squash Soup
- Chicken Noodle Soup (from Eating with Food Allergies)
- Taco Soup (from Real Food Allergy Free)
And even though waistlines suffer at this time of year, who can pass up dessert? Here are a few ways to wrap up a meal:
- Chocolate Peppermint Smoothie
- Cinnamon Chocolate Swirl Smoothie
- Brownie Bites (one of our FAVORITE recipes!)
What are your favorite allergen-free recipes at this time of year?
