In the meantime, let’s have a celebration of this new stage in the Pudology journey by talking all about the humble coconut and how it can be used in free-from recipes with delicious results…
Let’s Go (coco)nuts For Coconut Yoghurt!
Our Yogs are made from 99% natural coconut milk, an ingredient that offers a seemingly boundless list of health benefits.
Coconut milk is a popular replacement for cow’s milk in a lactose intolerant diet and it’s stuffed full of acids and lipids that help to boost the immune system.
The fatty acids in coconut milk can also contribute towards a healthy heart. There’s good news for our bodies outside as well as in – as the fatty acids are widely believed to contain moisturising properties that help to condition both hair and skin.
Cocnut Yoghurt Recipies Galore
This recipe for Thai Coconut and Veg Broth is a lovely free-from choice for lunch or dinner that will warm your cockles in the winter months. It contains a whole host of veggies, with a handful of coriander to enhance its beautiful fragrance. It also ticks the vegan and nut-free list, and is a great choice to impress at casual dinner parties.
Another lovely veggie dish that will provide some welcome warmth is this yummy recipe for Coconut Lime Tofu with Harissa. Tofu is obviously a great choice for vegetarians and vegans, and when it comes paired with harissa, lime zest and paprika it gives a delicious taste sensation. This recipe contains both coconut milk and coconut oil so you’ve got a double whammy of healthy goodness.
For those who fancy something meaty, Jamie Oliver’s recipe for Chicken Tikka Masala is a hearty, comforting choice for a winter dinner. He makes his with homemade paratha breads but for those looking for a gluten-free alternative, try this recipe from vegetarian food blog Gourmandelle. This dish uses gluten-free flour to make delicious flatbreads with sesame seeds to make sure you can mop up the very last morsels of your curry.
If you’re just a little peckish and want a light meal, try this gorgeous recipe for Coconut Blueberry Quinoa with Lime. It might sound like an unusual mix but the blend of flavours really bring out the best in one another and will help avoid any temptations to stray from your free from diet. Always choose brown quinoa if you’re gluten-free and for those with severe intolerance, it is best to replace quinoa with buckwheat to avoid any chance of cross-contamination.
We wouldn’t live up to expectations if we didn’t include at least one sweet treat – and that’s why you should check out this recipe for Coconut Milk Brown Rice Pudding with Caramel. All free-from foodies will know that one of the most difficult things is missing out on those best-loved classic dishes, so this offers a great twist on the traditional rice pudding. This recipe uses coconut milk, vegan butter and chia caramel to create an entirely dairy-free dish, with healthy ingredients including ginger, cinnamon and dried fruit.
