Jandals, pohutukawa, bbqs, ice cream......kiwi summer.
They all go hand in hand right? Well the ice cream part can be a little trickier for some. A lot of people aren’t able to enjoy the iconic treat because they are either dairy intolerant or choose to stay away from refined sugars. The majority of options around are basically scoops of dairy and refined sugar so a lot of people miss out on what will be just a childhood memory.
Well, I’m pretty stoked to be able to bring you a delicious alternative.
Do you know how easy it is to make a quickie version of jam, using raw fruits and chia seeds? This one utilises a big excess of feijoas that we have at home right now. Other great ideas are boysenberries (or any berries), figs, and plums.
The high protein and nutrient value of chia combines beautifully with leafy greens to create light yet very filling fritters. You can eat lots of these without feeling stuffed, and you know you're eating your greens, too! The chia gives a 'pop' in the mouth. The recipe is gluten and dairy free. You can easily make it egg-free/ vegan with the option given below. A popular dish both hot and cold, serve as a side, or as a main.
