These Dairy and Egg Free Tropical Fruit Crepes use Annies fruit pieces, but you could easily substitute any fruit you want, such as raspberries, strawberries or roasted stone fruit. It does contain soy in the mousse, but it would be fine with just whipped cream or coconut cream if you have soy allergies.
These Allergy Friendly Coconut Caramel Marshmallow Bars taste as good as any chocolate bar on the market I swear (just need a chocolate factory now haha) but are dairy free, egg free, gluten free and nut free 🙂 They are not even especially difficult to make and keep for ages in the fridge!
This Allergy Free Banoffee Pie is dairy free, egg free, nut free, gluten free and soy free. And coincidentally incredibly delicious. It also happens to be super sweet and rich so not for the faint-hearted!
It features layers of a sticky, oozy, delicious caramel made from coconut condensed milk, vanilla whipped coconut cream, shaved chocolate, bananas and a gluten free coconut crumb. It is also ridiculously easy to make and can be made in advance 🙂 Big thanks to VCO Natural for the coconut oil I used in this recipe.
Hubbards New Muesli and Porridge Review
I was lucky enough to be asked to review Hubbards new Muesli’s and Porridges….what a crazy tough job haha. I was given 4 new yummy ones to try:
*Blueberry and Apple Creamy Porridge
*Coconut Currants and Cinnamon Creamy Porridge
*No Added Sugar Fig and Apple Muesli
*No Added Sugar Date and Almond Muesli
If you don’t want to read the whole review….basically they were so yummy I went out and bought a new flavour today: Pecan, Date and Maple and I’m excited to try that one too 🙂
Obviously, my one-year-old thought they were pretty yum too:
This Dairy and Egg Free Caramel Muesli Slice came about from a review I was doing for Hubbards porridges and muesli’s..(I know…perks of the job!!!)…and was very last minute, but it honestly tastes AMAZING! I did add ground almonds since the muesli had almonds in anyway, but you could easily make it nut free by substituting the almonds with plain flour and using a nut free muesli.
Note: I was given muesli from Hubbards and coconut oil from VCO Natural to use as I wish…but having said that, I wouldn’t use them on my personal blog if I didn’t feel they were quality products and I am always honest in my reviews. Feel free to substitute these for products you prefer or have on hand.

Dairy Free Crumbed Pork (with an option for egg free and gluten free) served with rice, steamed veges, coconut yoghurt dressing and slices of fresh lime. This is a pretty easy, nutritious mid week family meal and can easily be prepared in advance.
I was lucky enough to receive some snacks and chutney from Tambura Foods (https://www.tamburafoods.com) to review…sometimes this really is the best job in the world!
I was given 3 different types of crunchy snacks to try: original, lemon and spicy and an Indian style Chutney. These snacks are gluten and dairy free which is pretty awesome, and they just happen to be pretty delicious too! Two of my children (ages 1 and 8) were able to eat them and both happily munched away on the original flavour, which has a taste of Indian spice without much heat at all. Incidentally, they are VERY crunchy 🙂 My 8 year old really loved the lemon flavoured ones. She had some friends over one day and they had a great time daring each other to try the spicy ones which was hilarious to watch. They were a bit too spicy for my relatively tame daughter, her Japanese friend ate a whole mouthful and came running out for a glass of milk and her Thai friend couldn’t even detect any spiciness and hoovered back half the packet! As for me, I loved the original and spicy ones…the spicy ones have definitely got a kick but not enough to cause any distress and I think they would make a perfect adult party snack. For kids parties, I’d definitely go with the original or lemon. The cumin infused chutney is lovely too..it does have quite a strong cumin flavour which is fine for me. I have found it a great meat accompaniment and been serving it with chicken and venison, but I think it would be lovely in vegetarian dishes too. I think the spicy snacks would also be great mixed into a salad for an interesting texture. An added bonus is they come in resealable pouches and I found they kept really well.
