My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 15 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.

Egg Free, Dairy Free Banana Smoothie

I've been making these Banana Smoothies for Jazlyn since she was little. My girls still request them at least once a week.

Banana Smoothie

Fresh bananas, sliced
Soy milk or safe milk of your choice
Chocolate syrup, strawberry syrup, vanilla extract or flavoring desired

Place all of the ingredients into a blender. Process until smooth. The thickness of your final smoothie depends on how much milk you add.
*  To make a single serving, I use a Magic Bullet personal blender, place in 1 sliced banana, add a big squirt of the flavoring they want then fill the blender a little over 3/4 full with the milk. Then I blend until smooth.
