A word from The Raw Food Girl

I realised today that a lot of the recipes on my site are designed towards kids... Which makes sense, since I have 4 of the little darlings.

This one came after the kids went to another birthday party with all sorts of delicious foods that my 3 year old just can't eat - including everything with gluten or dairy. So pretty much any 'normal' party food is off limits for him, unless he wants to spend the rest of the night itchy. Because those foods give him pretty nasty eczema. Which is actually a really common reaction for children who have a sensitive gut. The irritation caused by these allergenic foods manifest on the outside of the body.

My poor boy.

So this one's for him. A dairy-free, sugar-free, creamy as ice-cream that he can slurp away at on a hot day. And I may just have a few bites too :)
