Milo - Gluten free, dairy free, soy free
« on: December 24, 2013, 06:26:10 am »
I made up this Milo recipe after my son with numerous allergies wanted Milo after seeing his older non-allergic brother enjoying it at lunch time. Problem with regular Milo for my allergic son is that it contains gluten and dairy, both of which my son is allergic to. So here is a delicious recipe which is also nut free. It takes a whole minute and a half! (See it online here: http://nomorereactions.com/blog/recipes/)

Ingredients

80g Coconut flour
50g Coconut sugar
35g Cocoa (100% pure)
15g Linseed (Flax)

Directions

Step 1.   Mill coconut sugar and linseeds for 1 minute at Speed 9. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
Step 2.   Add the coconut flour and cocoa and mix for 15 seconds at Speed 6, scraping down the sides of the bowl and mixing for a further 10 seconds, Speed 6.


And it's done! Take a big teaspoon full and sprinkle over your choice of milk (rice milk in our case), or sprinkle over your dessert for a delicious chocolatey flavour.

Store in an air tight jar in the fridge.  

This quantity makes around 60 servings (one teaspoon each).

Oh wow. There's a whole lot of sugar and cocoa in that other one lol. Must be very sweet. I try to keep my son's food as tasty as possible with the least amount of sugar as possible. I'm also trying to avoid the top 8 allergens in all my recipes (free of nuts, peanuts, soy, dairy, wheat, egg, shellfish, sesame).

And yes, he loved it :) and so did I  :D  I'm actually thinking of just making a triple quantity of this one for the whole family instead of buying Milo which is ridiculously expensive. I'd be interested to hear what others think of the flavour and texture, particularly those that have had milo regularly in the past.

I'm happy to join this forum  :) Just started today.

Thank you. And Kim, flax (linseed) is purely for nutrition. It can certainly be left out if you wish.  :)
