Food Allergy Winter Recipes

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.

  • Heat up some apple cider, serve with a cinnamon stick
  • Brew up some peppermint, decaf chai, or herbal citrus tea

  • 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!
