Strawberry milk and chocolate cake for afternoon tea
 
Okay, here’s a really quick recipe for those of you who miss strawberry flavoured milk since you got healthy and stopped buying the sugar-filled fake stuff! This is my healthy, dairy free, sugar free version. It’s so simple it’s hardly even a recipe at all. But I decided to post it here instead of just on my Facebook page since I haven’t posted anything on my blog for about three weeks – eek!! And also because I keep getting hassled for the recipe. 😉 Keeping it simple tonight, had a big day, so here it is…

Oh, by the way, the cake in the photo above is also dairy free – and gluten free, egg free and naturally sweetened… here it is here: Gluten Free Chocolate Banana Cake.

    Really nice drink! I loved it as much as the kids. I was using frozen strawberries and had already blitzed the ice before I read the comment about skipping the ice. So I reduced the amount of water I added slightly and blitzed a few extra seconds!

    Thanks for your healthy recipes Jo. I will be making this again!

    Hi Jo,

    Can I ask my daughter is allergic to nuts is there an alternative to it? Does it still taste nice without nuts? Thanks.
