OATS AND A GLUTEN-FREE DIET

Most people with coeliac disease or gluten intolerance can tolerate gluten-free oats with no problems. However, a small percentage of people may still react to avenin – a protein in oats similar to gluten. For these people, even certified gluten-free oats may be unsafe.  If you develop any new symptoms after adding gluten-free oats to your diet, it’s best if you talk to your dietitian or a doctor.

Another problem can be cross-contamination. Even though oats are naturally gluten-free, they are often contaminated with gluten because they may be processed in the same facilities as gluten-containing grains like wheat, rye, and barley. Therefore, if you have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, always make sure your oats are certified gluten-free to avoid any cross-contamination issues.

WHAT IS BLUE SPIRULINA?

Blue spirulina, also called Blue Majik, is a blue pigment derived from blue-green algae. Phycocyanin is a pigment that gives spirulina (which is a deep green) a slightly bluish hue.

This 100 % natural food coloring is very mild in flavor, almost flavorless. It’s perfect for coloring raw cakes, smoothies, lattes, noodles, rice, and more.

Just add a teaspoon of this amazing powder to your smoothie and it will magically turn blue.

STEP 1

Soak rolled oats in rice milk overnight.

STEP 2

In the morning, place overnight oats into a high-speed blender. Add frozen bananas, coconut cream, and 1 teaspoon blue spirulina. Blend briefly until smooth and creamy.

SERVING SUGGESTION

Serve in jars, top with coconut yogurt and blueberries.

TIPS AND HOW-TOS

Rice milk: You can use other plant-based milk like almond, oat, or soy.

Coconut cream: Chill full-fat canned coconut milk in the refrigerator overnight so that you can easily separate cream from the liquid. The cream should be firm enough so that you can scoop it out with a spoon.

HOW TO FREEZE RIPE BANANAS

Bananas are best frozen when they’re ripe or slightly overripe (spotty). Here is how to do it:

  • To freeze banana slices, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Peel your bananas and cut into 1.5 – 2 cm thick slices.
  • Arrange them in a single layer on the baking sheet and freeze until the bananas are solid, for about 2 hours.
  • Once frozen, peel the banana slices off of the parchment paper, and place them in a freezer-safe container.
  • Put them back into the freezer until ready to use.
  • Make sure you seal the container properly to prevent them from turning brown.
  • Store bananas in the freezer for up to 3 months.
