Allergy-Free Easter, Dairy Free Easter, Sugar Free Easter


Celebrating Easter with Food Allergies

Easter is often a time of year where we slow down, maybe head out of town, enjoy connecting with family and friends and eating a little too much chocolate. But what do you do if you or your guests have dietary restrictions?

Maybe dairy or gluten or chocolates are off the menu. We have plenty of products and ideas that can help you out.


Dairy Free Easter Eggs / Hot Cross Buns

Dairy is a blanket term given to milk products that come from an animal, so to be safe, dairy intolerance or allergy will rule out cow, goat and sheep products which include milk, cream, cheese, yoghurt & butter.

The most common ingredient in chocolate, other than cacao, is milk, which means traditional chocolate is off limits for many with dairy intolerance. Dairy free chocolate options we love are:

We use Power Super Foods Raw Cacao, erythritol, coconut oil, dessicated coconut. Just like a Bounty chocolate, only heathy.


Chocolate Free Easter

For those who cannot tolerate chocolate, whether that be due to the caffeine or theobromine content (two naturally occurring compounds in chocolate that can cause migraines and headaches), we recommend trying carob.

Carob powder is derived from carob pods which have been dried out and then ground up. They are a member of the legume family and unlike cacao, have a naturally sweet taste so require less sweetener in recipes. Chocolate free options we love are:
