Allergy Free, Blueberry Yogurt Bowl
Did you see our last yogurt bowl idea post? This is another idea, in hopes to give you inspiration for allergy free goodness. I personally thought it would be fun have to this one be “baby and me” style. This bowl features So Delicious dairy free coconut yogurt, frozen organic wild blueberries, Go Raw organic watermelon seeds, organic kiwi, and organic banana.
To make kiwi stars, I peeled the kiwi, and cut thick slices. Then I used a small, metal, star cookie cutter. Everything else is just careful, photo ready, placement. Funny thing is, it does take quite a while to get these bowls ready for their picture. Happy eating!
Balsamic Baked Carrots
Have you seen our Monday Night Live Streams? If not, I think you may be missing out on something pretty radical. Each Monday on Instagram (@TheAllergyChef) we stream live.

Vegan Mango Spice Cake – Guest Blog Post
Today we have a special treat for you, a guest blog post by Shikha from Veggiecurean. Her site is simply gorgeous, and full of allergy friendly, all vegan, recipes. You can also follow her on Instagram, @veggiecurean. Enjoy!
Who doesn’t like tropical fruit? My kids absolutely love mangoes, so much so that we often have mangoes in all three major meals of the day — in our smoothies for breakfast, in our salads for lunch, and in our Thai curry for dinner. It seems like I can never buy enough mangoes at the store!
It became obvious to me that my kids wanted to add mangoes to their dessert, too, specifically in the form of cake, their favorite kind of dessert. So, being the amazing mother and spice queen that I am, I decided to make a Vegan Mango Cake and add a spicy ginger kick to it.

Allergy Free, Vegan, Chocolate Chia Pudding
Have you ever seen Chia Pods in your local grocery store? I saw them a very long time ago, and Kid Two really enjoyed them, but only certain flavors. No one else seemed to like them, and I wasn’t in love with the price. After thinking about the ingredients, I set out to make them myself. That was over a year ago. The boys have been in love with every flavor I’ve created, including vanilla and mango. They also know how to make these on their own now. Chocolate however remains king of the flavors, as it is requested the most. This rendition includes banana, and everyone was happy to have it. What I like the most about this is that it’s coconut free. All too often, healthy chia puddings call for either almond or coconut milk. Well not these. However, if you’re grain free, you could sub in a milk that you enjoy. These work great as a breakfast, snack, or dessert. Once you’ve made them once, you’ll see how the ratios work, then I suggest you go wild and start making all sorts of flavors.

Allergy Free Yogurt Bowl
I just wanted to share this simple idea with you. Smoothie and yogurt bowls seem to be quite popular online, so I figured we should make one, right? We used So Delicious dairy free coconut yogurt, and topped it with Nature’s Path gluten free chocolate rice cereal and organic banana slices. That’s it! It’s super simple, the kids loved it, and it photographs well. Enjoy!
Allergy Free, Vegan, Brussels Sprouts Lunch & Giveaway
As you may know, we teamed up with Bentology to bring you a delicious stuffed pork recipe. Well, there’s this one as well, as we didn’t want our vegan readers to be left out. As I mentioned before, I really like that this is a bento-style product. In addition to making this recipe for our vegan eaters, I thought it would be great since they work hard to encourage people to eat healthy. For those of you that are brussels sprouts avoiders, I can personally guarantee that The Papa was happy with this meal. Focus on the word happy. He hates brussels sprouts.
To make this partnership even better, Bentology has given us one of their lunch boxes and tote to give away. To take part in the giveaway, head over to our Instagam account, @TheAllergyChef, and follow the instructions. Good luck!

Allergy Free Earth Day Brownies
Have you been able to watch our Instagram Live Streams on Mondays? If not, see if you can start tuning in. Each week we go over different recipes, field questions, give tips, and even take requests. These brownies were a request from a user needing a little help in the baking department. Here on the blog, there’s the Free Brownie Recipe. Over at the Bakery Website, there’s the Free Kit Card Download of a different brownie recipe (and a topping too). This was something totally new because this person didn’t want a brownie that too oily. To achieve that, I started with the Kit Card version, then modified 🙂
On the Live Stream, we also showed people a really cool topping idea for people who may want to make Brownie Bars, as well as Candy Stuffed Brownies. So, here’s several recipes, links and product information (none of the links are affiliate links) and yummy pictures too. Happy Earth Day!

The Vegan Street Fair was Fantastic!
We got home from VSF yesterday, and what an adventure it was. Ready for a long post?
In the month leading up to the fair, we were simply busy busy every single day. In addition to the VSF items, we updates all three websites, created new flavors, started new consulting projects, and more. However, the final week before the fair was simply crazy. We were working 20 hour days on average, and boy were we tired. Read More
Peach & Blackberry Mini Pies
It’s not very often that I get to share something that I make for me. This is one of those times. I wasn’t able to eat it much, but let me tell you, it was such a nice thing to try. If you haven’t heard of Inna Jam, go check them out. It’s SOOOO delicious. They source some of their fruit from a safe area for me, so it’s worth trying, even if the test fails.
To give you an idea of how delicious this was, when it came out of the oven, I ate it… nearly piping hot. It was just sooo goooodd. I couldn’t stop myself. So I proceeded to make a couple more for the following days. Truthfully, I liked the filling more than the crust, and the crust standalone wasn’t that awesome. Overall, it was worth it. Well worth it. The filling really helps mask the parts of the crust I wasn’t in love with.

Allergy Free, Organic, Vegan, Sweet Vegetables
The inspiration from this came from a deep desire to create more vegan recipes. It breaks my heart sometimes because there’s a lot of social debate about the word, and lifestyle, vegan. However, it means a lot of different things to a lot different people. For example, there are some people who make the honest choice to be a vegan to save animals. Others have a medical condition, and have to eat a vegan diet. Then there are those that happen to benefit from the word vegan: those with food allergies. If you have an egg and dairy allergy (and no others), you can eat vegan by default. This can make it very clear when ordering from a restaurant, or trying something new in the grocery store.
I personally see the GIANT Venn Diagram that is the food allergy/lifestyle/dietary differences. There’s so many overlaps, but depending on why you’re on a path, you may not realize there are many others that can join you. I like to tell people it’s a language disconnect. Since people are approaching it from a different perspective, they go with what they know. It’s why I try so hard to break down those walls, and say hey, you can all enjoy this meal together. So, get cooking, and get to enjoying.
