Christmas Treats

The Christmas break is a perfect time for lots of Christmas baking and cooking with the kids! Even more so now that many of us are finding ourselves again in some sort of lockdown. We love to be creative with our cooking in our household, but the firm favourite for the kids is decorating (and eating!) the cookies. Why not make yourself a large batch of cookies or gingerbread men, and allow the kids to show their creative sides? Home made icing with a few very simple ingredients is a perfect 'glue' made up in no time. Just mix 3 spoons of icing sugar with a spoon of dairy alternative milk and some vanilla seeds. ***3 tablespoons of icing sugar with a small squeeze of lemon juice and a teaspoon of water gives a perfect dairy free fruity alternative (though check that your icing sugar does not contain dairy products!) Below you can find some ideas and inspiration for different treats which we served as part of EdiBee's kids lunch menu last week. Several of these pictures link through the recipe on our website. Many of these recipes can be adapted to filter out your allergens: Milk = why not use your dairy alternative milk option Egg = 1 Mashed banana; a chia seed egg (1 table spoon chia seeds to 3 tablespoons water) Wishing you a very enjoyable festive season!
