Caffeine-Free Chai Latte and Moon Mylk for Raynaud’s Awareness Month (Vegan + Dairy-Free + Gluten-Free)

Is there anything more comforting or cosy on a cold winter’s day than a mug of warm aromatic milk? Well, this caffeine-free Chai Latte/Moon Mylk is a blend of dreams that I adore to help with my Raynaud’s Disease!

February is Raynaud’s Awareness Month and, as a result, my February posts will be dedicated to the theme of this awareness. This is the second post from the series for 2021, but I truly think that everyone will find this Chai Latte extremely comforting.

What is the difference between a Chai Latte and Moon Mylk?

So, what is a Chai Latte?

Chai is the Hindi word for tea. So, chai is simply tea! As for the taste, chai is characterised as a specific type of tea that’s filled with warm spices and then sweetened.

I’m making this a Chai Latte because I’m blending the essence of the tea with a warm, nourishing milk. And so, you can also call this recipe a Moon Mylk.

Moon Mylk is a warm milk with spices, herbs and added nutrients that are all magically blended together to bring about complete serenity and balance. And isn’t the name alone ‘moon mylk’, that little bit more enchanted!

If you haven’t heard of a Moon Mylk before it’s possible you know what a Golden Milk is as they are increasingly making their way into the highstreet chains.

A Golden Milk is one of the earliest types of Moon Mylks that comes from the Indian drink “Haldi doodh” that translates to “turmeric milk” in Hindi.

In Ayurveda traditions from India, Golden Milk is used as a common remedy for insomnia. Today, we’re also utilising the power of these magical ingredients that can also help boost circulation as well as relaxation.

What ingredients are in a Chai Latte/Moon Mylk?

So what goes into this Chai Latte/Moon Mylk? Well, firstly you’ll want to pick your favourite Milk of choice as the base. 

Milk (or mylk as many vegans refer to non-dairy forms as) naturally contains a combination of carbs and protein to help induce calming hormones that help you sleep. Today I’m using my go-to of oat milk as I find it a perfect base for this drink. I also love Rice Milk for the natural sweetness or hemp as it is one of the most environmentally friendly plant-based mylks to use.

I then dropped in my spices to this warming milk. I’ve fused this drink with a luscious mixture of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and allspice. You can truly create what your body and soul are craving.

The next common ingredient is an Adaptogen. These are a select group of herbs (and some mushrooms) that support the body’s natural ability to deal with stress. They are called Adaptogens because of their unique ability to “adapt” their function according to the specific needs of the body.

Ashwagandha is one of the most common of these Adaptogens and the one I’m using today (I get mine from The Natural Health Market). It’s wonderful for relieving stress and strengthening the immune system. Isn’t that what we all need right now?

By the way, if you don’t have an Adaptogen, stop at the spices and sweeten to your taste!

The final part is very intuitive because you can really work with your creativity when it comes to taste and adorning the Chai Latte/Moon Milk to your preference. I always love to leave my cinnamon stick in the milk for extra taste. It also makes a lovely natural stirrer!

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

I hope you love every sip of this comforting chai latte/ Moon Mylk and that it’s something that can comfort and nourish you as we come to the snowy and icy finale of this winter season where I am in Northern Hemisphere.

Purition Vegan and Dairy-Free Whole Plant Nutrition for GERD and Gastroparesis [AD-Gifted]

Purition Vegan and Dairy-Free Whole Plant Nutrition for GERD and Gastroparesis [AD-Gifted]

This post contains gifted items from Purition that has been marked in line with my disclaimer/policy

As a disclaimer: Obviously, this post is very much in loving creation especially for my fellow Gastroparesis friends, however, I do hope the recipes below inspire you the next time you make your smoothie or smoothie bowls!

In the Spring and Summer of 2020, I experienced a long insidious Gastroparesis flare. During this flare-up and as with all Gastroparesis flares, I go to my emergency liquid diet plan such as broths, smoothies or clear sweetened liquids (click here for additional information on managing a Gastroparesis flare).

However, as well as the above, it’s vital to get as much varied nutrition in as possible. Especially as these flares can last a significant period of time when they do arrive.

I’m a huge fan of vegan or dairy-free protein drinks. Unfortunately, they are not as easy to come by as you might think! Enter, Purition!

Purition is the creator of meal replacements made with simple wholefood, natural and plant-based ingredients.

Each sachet is a balanced blend of protein, fibre, healthy fats (from real food) that provides health and fitness essentials including naturally occurring vitamins and minerals. This is all ideal during a Gastroparesis flare!

I was kindly sent some sample from the Vegan and Dairy Free collection to try.

Read on below to see what I thought!

For additional information on managing a Gastroparesis flare, and the next stage, I have an extensive post right here.

Purition Vegan Wholefood Plant Nutrition Range

Purition proudly brands themselves as ‘pro plant’ and source directly from the timely and potent qualities of fruit, veg, grains seeds and nuts.

Moreover, Purition products are minimally processed, and in terms of their vegan range, everything is 100% plant-based.

As anyone who has ever tried medical meal supplements, you will know only too well how artificial everything tastes. Not to mention how overly sweet it all is!

To Purition there’s a big difference between ‘flavour’ and ‘flavourings’. Therefore, they infuse authentic essences into their products.

So, their Strawberry comes from strawberries, not just strawberry flavouring. Similarly, their Vanilla is made with pure Madagascan vanilla pods.

To Purition, they believe that if you use “real ingredients in well-balanced recipes, there’s simply no need for any lazy added sugars, artificial sweeteners, flavourings or fillers.” 

They go onto say:

“We’re here to ‘shake-up’ the shady protein shake landscape filled with fake shakes and diet/meal replacements.

Forget smoothies loaded with sugar, junk-filled protein shakes, spurious nutritional supplements & faddy diets. 

Purition is protein as it should be, helping to take the stress out of healthy eating.


Here is the heart and soul of everything Purition create, taken from their vegan range:

Balanced: Our balanced approach to nutrition using real food ingredient packed with naturally occurring nutrition is key to your success. Protein, Fats and Fibre combine to deliver energy, digestive support, vitamins, minerals to feel great.

Protein: 20g of the finest plant-based protein from seeds, nuts, pea protein, brown rice and hemp protein. For a better essential amino acid composition.

Natural Fats: 10g of natural fats, fat contain twice the amount of energy than carbohydrate but are hard to overeat without carbohydrate. Fat is also required to absorb fat-soluble vitamins and minerals.

Carbohydrate: 10g of total carbs with just 2g of net carbs. With 8g of fibre per serving (fibre is a carbohydrate which contains zero calories) but helps to regulate the digestive system and foster good gut bacteria.

How Purition Can Support Gastroparesis Flares

Before I dive into my thoughts on the samples I tried, I wanted to pause and touch on how protein drinks and meal replacements can be very beneficial to those that, like me, suffer from Gastroparesis.

Gastroparesis (also called delayed gastric emptying), is a chronic digestive condition.

With Gastroparesis, the vagus nerve and/or muscle damage can impair the stomach’s ability to contract and release properly.

Some refer to Gastroparesis as having a paralysed stomach (this is because Gastro equals stomach and paresis equals paralysis). This means that food and fluid in the stomach remain there for longer, hence Gastroparesis being described as “delayed emptying”.

I have lived with Gastroparesis for many years, and I write as extensively as I am able to about my experience here. To learn more about the condition I recommend starting with my post: ‘What Is Gastroparesis?’

As a result of having Gastroparesis, eating and drinking can be very distressing and troublesome. Every single day, I live with constant nausea and an internal battle of creating meals that my body is able to digest.

In this post I wrote called ‘Natural Therapies for Gastroparesis’ I touch on how I approach eating and drinking alongside natural remedies that help to soothe me when I need it.

More recently, I have been working with a Dietician to enable me to maintain a healthy weight as many who have Gastroparesis like me will understand how challenging this is.

When Gastroparesis patients like me experience flares, it can lead to long periods at a time of being on a liquid diet. And thus, in order to gain as much strength as possible, it’s vital to have support from meal replacements or similar supplements that are giving you all the vitamins and minerals you need to get through.

Protein drinks and meal replacements are indeed laden with artificial ingredients and sugar and I have really struggled to find something to match the abundance of goodness from the food I’d normally enjoy eating outside of a flare.

And even outside of a flare, I have tried to add one of these samples to my normal diet to help me get more calories into my diet.

Overall Thoughts on Purition for Gastroparesis

During my Gastroparesis last year I used the very thing that sustains me to get me through: seeking whimsy, wonder and enchantment!

For example, my Papaya and Strawberry Unicorn Bowl is something you could easily re-create with Purition. As a general tip, add a dairy-free milk that you truly love the flavour of, because it will become very potent and flavoursome in these blends.

In addition, these meal replacements make me feel like I’m ‘playing’ in the kitchen but nothing as mentally and emotionally trying as cooking.

My favourite flavour is most definitely the Strawberry flavour. It truly tastes like the real deal! I adore strawberries anyway, and they are so multi-tasking. Not too sweet, but not bland in the slightest. Here, I added a bit of rosewater and rose petals for the whimsical qualities you all know me for!

I also think that the Almond and Coconut flavours are such multi-tasking gems and would be dreamy bases for a smoothie bowl.

Finally, an honourable mention for the fun Pistachio flavour! This made for such a lovely smoothie bowl with raspberries.

Here are some of my favourite things:

  • The flavour ranges are stunning! SO creative and so enticing! There’s something for everyone. Very on-trend too.
  • They are not overly sweet and are a lovely base to add more things to.
  • The sample sachets are so perfect for travel! I always travel with bulky liquid drinks for my flares and this is such a light addition to my bags (however, also see the below!).

Here are some of my not so favourite things:

  • Something that truly transformed my Gastroparesis flare towards the end of the year was starting a Low-Fodmap diet. The Purition vegan range is not exclusively low-fodmap. Having said that, it’s gluten-free (something that has really helped me!) and because I have a severe dairy-intolerance it’s definitely more important for them to be free from dairy!
  • I mentioned it was travel friendly above BUT where you’re staying would ideally need a blender! You never know, perhaps a kind cafe or restaurant can help you out (I have had many trips that have accommodated me so kindly during a flare!)
  • I found some of the formulas thicker than others, and hence I made some into gorgeous smoothie bowls (I actually prefer it this way!).

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Thank you to Purition for introducing me to your brand. I hope that by introducing your products here, it can reach someone who is vegan or dairy-free and searching for ways to help them during a Gastroparesis flare.

I’d now love to hear from my Gastroparesis readers: what meal replacements have you currently found? How do you manage a flare?

I’d love to hold space for you here so please do leave a comment below.

Low-FODMAP Pumpkin and Banana Bread Cake with Almond Butter Frosting for GERD and Gastroparesis (Vegan + Dairy-Free + Gluten-Free)

Low-FODMAP Pumpkin and Banana Bread Cake with Almond Butter Frosting for GERD and Gastroparesis (Vegan + Dairy-Free + Gluten-Free)

To continue my Pumpkin Series, today I bring you this truly whimsical Low-FODMAP Pumpkin and Banana Bread Cake with indulgent almond butter frosting that’s designed for GERD and Gastroparesis. It’s also a luscious treat that is vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free.

As it happens, Autumn is a great time to embrace the fruits of the labour of a low-FODMAP diet as there is an abundance of hearty seasonal ingredients around. Because of this, I’ve been creating a Pumpkin series on my blog.

First, we had a hearty Pumpkin Soup, then a soothing Pumpkin Spice Smoothie Bowl, and finally this yummy pumpkin and banana bread that also feels like a cake that’s a mix of the two, and just as warming!

This scrumptious Low-FODMAP Pumpkin and Banana Bread Cake with indulgent almond butter frosting is a scrumptious treat for GERD and Gastroparesis that's also vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free. With the earthy mix of pumpkin meeting the exotic blends of banana, this bread feels like a cake that's moist, soft and perfect as an afternoon pick-me-up. 
Course Breakfast, lunch, Snack
Cuisine American, Caribbean
Servings 12

Ingredients
  

  • 225 grams Gluten-Free Flour (or flour of your choice)
  • 1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
  • Pinch of Sea Salt
  • 10 tbsp Coconut Sugar (or light brown sugar)
  • 3/4 cup Walnuts
  • 115 grams Pumpkin OR Pumpkin Puree (Grated)
  • 2 small Bananas
  • 2 Eggs/Flax Egg OR Vegan Egg (I'm using Oggs)
  • 2/3 cup Coconut Oil (melted)

Instructions
 

  • Place the oven onto 180C or 160F and allow it to warm up
  • Line the base and sides of a deep 20cm/8 inches round fixed-based cake tin (pan) or a suitably sized dish with baking parchment.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger and salt into a mixing bowl and combine.
  • Stir in the sugar, chopped walnuts, and grated pumpkin until thoroughly mixed.
  • Make a slight hollow in the middle of the dry ingredients.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the bananas (if you're using pumpkin puree rather than grated pumpkin add it here) egg/egg substitute, coconut oil, and then stir in the dry ingredients.
  • Turn this into the prepared tin and level the surface. Place in the oven for 30 minutes. You'll know it's done by placing a clean knife in and see if it comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool and now it's time to create your icing! This was a really intuitive process so I used: 1/2 cup of almond butter, 1 teaspoon of Vanilla Paste, 1 1/2 tablespoon of maple syrup, 55 grams Vegan Butter and a Pinch of Sea Salt. Pop into a blend and if you need to sweeten it more add more maple syrup.
  • Apply your frosting to your cake and you're done! Whimsical decorations are optional!

With the earthy mix of pumpkin meeting the exotic blends of banana, this bread feels like a cake that’s moist, soft and perfect as an afternoon pick-me-up!

If you would prefer to make this as a bread, you can simply adapt the container you place it in. As for the whimsical decoration, I was really called to honour the sweetness of this season and all the gorgeous animals that frequent my local habitat.

Will you decorate yours, or leave the almond frosting as it is? Speaking of that, this was such an intuitive process to make this indulgent topping. I really just threw lots of things in a blender and felt it was complete when it was sweet and silky enough for my preferences. Feel free to have fun with this! You can also make yourself a vegan cream cheese frosting.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

I hope you love this banana and pumpkin cake and that it’s something that can comfort and nourish you as we enter into these colder months, and of course this next lockdown here in the UK.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 tbsp Pumpkin
  • 1 Banana (small or half a big banana)
  • 1 tbsp Dairy Free Yoghurt (I'm using Oatly plain yoghurt)
  • 100  ml Dairy Free Mylk (I'm using Hemp Milk)
  • 1 scoop/tbsp Protein Vegan Powder
  • 1 tbsp Peanut OR Almond Butter
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 whole Clove

You'll want to give this all a good few minutes to create the consistency you're after! Add all the spices and vanilla.
  • Pour your smoothie mixture into a bowl. I'm using a small bowl from Coconut Bowls. If there's too much smoothie for you, put some in another bowl and keep for another day.
  • Now it's time to decorate! To start, I added a semi-circle halo top to the bowl with the Coconut Chips. Next, add the gluten-free granola in front of where you added the Coconut Chips.
  • Anything else you add is now down to your whimsical imagination! I added some of my edible woodland animals, some raspberries, and some edible glitter. Now, enjoy enchanted being!

Honouring Samhain

The sight of Pumpkins truly conjures up the arrival of autumn, and there’s an abundance of Pumpkin related specialities such as Pumpkin scented candles, and a certain latte blend (!), that also coincide with events such as harvest, the arrival of Pumpkin patches and Halloween that takes place on the 31st October.

I’d love to know if Halloween has any significance for you, or if it’s just another night of the year? For me, I take time to dig deeper into my Celtic roots by honouring this festival that originated from an ancient Celtic spiritual tradition.

In modern times, Samhain (a Gaelic word pronounced “sow-win” that’s derived from a compound of two ancient Gaelic words, “sam,” which was an old word for “Samrad,” or “Summer,” and “fuin,” an ancient word for “end,” referring to the “end” of Summer).

Traditionally, Samhain was usually celebrated from 31st October to 1st November to welcome in the harvest and the remaining dark half of the year.

For those that celebrated, and continue to celebrate and honour Samhain, they believe that the barriers between the physical world and the spirit world break down during Samhain, allowing more interaction between humans and “otherworld.”

This meant that the fairies and other immortal beings might roam the Earth as they pleased on this special night. As a result, only the very brave ventured out of their homes on Samhain Eve for fear of meeting one of these supernatural beings.

I lean so heavily into the origins of this magic, now more than ever. It reminds me how special it is for me to lean into mysticism in all forms.

Added Whimsical Touches

So if you’ve become enchanted by the above, why not add a little bit of whimsy to your smoothie bowl? I’m using a mix of edible sparkle, woodland creatures and granola to create a truly enchanting mix.

Nature’s Path Gluten-Free Granola has been such a magical discovery and it’s quickly become my autumnal granola of choice!

With clusters of golden baked oats, toasted pumpkin seeds, almonds, coconut, tangy cranberries, raisins and a pinch of cinnamon it’s the scents and taste of the seasons in a bowl.

Discover more about Nature’s Path Pumpkin Seed, Almond and Raisin Granola right here.

pretty-pea-protein-powder

Pretty Pea Protein (AD-Gifted as I have previously worked with this lovely brand and I have done a separate review here) is a vegan protein powder that is not only incredibly pretty and ethereal to behold but packed with superfoods such as Spirulina, Green Tea, Acai Berry and Chicory Root.

These powerful ingredients that feature in Pretty Pea Protein are all known for their potency and power for centuries. Having said that it’s nearly but not completely Low-FODMAP so I just wanted to add that as a little disclaimer here for those strictly following a Low-FODMAP. I haven’t had any problems whatsoever, it’s been so soothing for my tummy, but as this is a Low-FODMAP recipe just wanted to add that additional info!

If you enjoyed seeing how I add protein powder and have enjoyed this recipe, then be sure to check out my lovely Tropical Protein Pink Porridge using Pretty Pea Vegan Protein here.

I truly hope you enjoy the sweetness and creaminess of this cosy Pumpkin Smoothie Bowl!

Low-FODMAP Pumpkin Soup for GERD and Gastroparesis (Vegan + Dairy-Free + Gluten-Free)

Low-FODMAP Pumpkin Soup for GERD and Gastroparesis (Vegan + Dairy-Free + Gluten-Free)

Today’s recipe will do just that, and I present to you this warming low-FODMAP Pumpkin Soup that is ideal for GERD and Gastroparesis whilst also lovingly made in made for those that are vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free.

The sight of Pumpkins truly conjures up the arrival of autumn, and there’s an abundance of Pumpkin related specialities such as Pumpkin scented candles, and a certain latte blend (!), that also coincide with events such as harvest, the arrival of Pumpkin patches and Halloween that takes place on the 31st October.

In celebration of this hearty gift from nature I’ll be making three recipes from one gorgeous Pumpkin: This soup recipe you’re reading now, a sweet banana and pumpkin cake and finally a fun pumpkin pie smoothie bowl.

Let’s start with this Pumpkin soup that is filled with warming spices to nourish your heart and soul.

My experience of the Low-FODMAP Diet for Gastroparesis

As of August this year, I have been eating exclusively on the Low-FODMAP diet as a result of spending most of this year moving through an insidious Gastroparesis flare and chronic nausea.

So far the process of adopting a low-FODMAP diet has helped immensely and I’m blessed to be able to handle more solid foods after months of liquids.

I have had many experiences before this where I would dip in and out of the low-FODMAP diet, but this season I have given it my full dedication and I’ve been so held by the results.

Of course, it is not a miracle cure for GERD and Gastroparesis, however, by eliminating problem areas in my diet, I have been able to eat 3 small meals a day. As a result, I don’t have as many days where I am completely bed-bound due to nausea.

Having said all of that, a low-FODMAP diet takes a while to settle in! I’m still very much finding my feet and sometimes the types of fruits and vegetables that are harmonious for me, and those are not, don’t always make sense!

For example, sweet potato can be enjoyed in moderation but white potatoes are fine. For me, the lower GI elements of a sweet potato was easier for me to enjoy so this was strange to see!

Then there are blackberries that are sadly not allowed on the low-FODMAP diet, whereas raspberries are fine! Things like this have taken a lot of adjustments for me!

Georgie xoxo
As Autumn greets the Northern Hemisphere, with all its luscious symbolism and poetic richness, the temperatures begin to drop, and it’s a time for truly inviting warmth in with comforting and cosy foods to warm you up.
Today’s recipe will do just that, and I present to you this warming low-FODMAP Pumpkin Soup that is ideal for GERD and Gastroparesis whilst also lovingly made in made for those that are vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free.
Cook Time 50 mins
Total Time 50 mins
Course autumn, fall, Soup
Cuisine American, autumn, fall
Servings 4

Ingredients
  

  • 900 g Pumpkin Peeled with seeds removed (leave aside to toast for the finish) and cut into 1cm cubes
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil (or cooking oil of choice)
  • 2 Celery
  • 1 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 750 ml Low-FODMAP Stock of choice (I love Massel)
  • Sea Salt
  • Pepper
  • Parsley to finish (to garnish)
  • Cinnamon (to garnish)
  • Non-dairy yoghurt (to garnish)

Instructions
 

  • Start by carefully peeling and de-seeding the pumpkin and then measure 900g worth of Pumpkin. Cut the large Pumpkin chunks into 1cm cubes.
  • Heat the oil in a big pot and add the celery. Cook gently until softened but not coloured.
  • Add the ginger and cumin and stir for another minute.
  • Add the Pumpkin to the pot and a tbsp of filtered water so that the Pumpkin doesn't stick. Let the Pumpkin soften with the celery and spices for about 10 minutes.
  • Add the stock, salt and pepper, and allow to boil. When it reaches a nice boiling point, turn the temperature down to medium-low so it simmers for 30 to 35 minutes.
  • Take off the heat and use a hand blender to puree the soup.
  • Top with pumpkin seeds (you can roast the seeds from your Pumpkin!) and stir through a dollop of non-dairy yoghurt and a sprinkling of cinnamon and parsley. Enjoy!

Pumpkin as a Low-FODMAP Superstar

Well, as it turns out, autumn is a great time to embrace the fruits of labour of a low-FODMAP diet as there is an abundance of hearty seasonal ingredients around and I’m excited to share a lot of recipes soon.

However, let’s start with a feast of Pumpkin recipes that will all be vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, and of course, aimed at those that, like me, suffer from GERD and Gastroparesis or similar,

Pumpkins are a miracle food for Gastroparesis that have an anti-inflammatory effect that is wonderful for soothing ulcers, acid reflux and an irritated gut.

In addition, Pumpkins contain high levels of beta-carotene, a pigment that gives certain fruits and vegetables that glowing hue of orange, yellow and red pigment that the body converts this beta-carotene into Vitamin A.

This source of Vitamin A benefits the skin that you might already know from food with a glowing orange hue. This, along with pumpkin’s Vitamin C and E content, plays an essential role in the health, development and maintenance of the glow of our skin that can help to minimise cell damage caused by free radicals and protecting the skin from premature aging, leaving it feeling soft and supple.

Pumpkins also contain tryptophan which encourages a restful, peaceful slumber and balances our moods by increasing serotonin. In a season that arrives so that we are able to retreat inwards and slow down, the relaxing qualities of Pumpkin are particularly potent.

Then there are the gifts inside a Pumpkin: pumpkin seeds!

These incredible gifts that reside inside the Pumpkin like a treasure, contain a heap of nutritional benefits such as magnesium, manganese and phosphorus, and they are also a good source of iron, copper, protein and zinc.

The Spiritual Significance of Pumpkin

At this time of year, there’s an abundance of Pumpkins, and many of us will be carving them this weekend. But how much do we know about the history and the spiritual significance of Pumpkins?

Though the origin of Pumpkins is not definitively known, it’s thought that they originated in Mexico or North America where pumpkin-related seeds believed to be thousands of years old have been discovered. Now they grow on every continent other than Antarctica.

Let us first look at the roots of the fruit itself, where the Pumpkin receives all its nutrients from the ground through the vine of the fruit providing its connection to the world from which it grows. And in addition, this same vine of the Pumpkin has become a symbol of friendship where of course connection naturally blossoms.

Then there’s the significance of the shape of the Pumpkin. In Early societies, many saw symbolism and spiritual significance in round objects, from rocks to seeds and, yes, the pumpkin.

And what else is round, why, the World! And truly a Pumpkin is a world in itself. Being one of the biggest fruits that we know of, a Pumpkin is completely full of seeds and rich flesh and produce. As a result, it’s truly become a symbol of abundance.

So of all nature’s edible gifts, the Pumpkin truly is the poster image for abundance and prosperity! The seeds also carry great significance, where you can find nearly as many as 500 in some Pumpkins!

As you scoop out your Pumpkin this season, just imagine that every single seed is an opportunity to be grateful and find your life filled with blessings waiting to be granted.

Instead of throwing your Pumpkin seeds away, be sure to roast them gently and then assign a blessing to these seeds. Then throughout the season to come, you can really feel into these blessings.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

I hope this Pumpkin soup recipe helps you find magic in some way. I’m a big believer that food is medicine and this Pumpkin soup is just what the doctor ordered! A bowl of soup that, no less, both nourishes the soul and brings together the richness of this beautiful season.

Tropical Protein Pink Porridge with Pretty Pea Protein Powder and Raw Nice Pink Pitaya Powder for GERD and Gastroparesis (Vegan + Dairy-Free + Gluten-Free) [AD-Gifted]

Tropical Protein Pink Porridge with Pretty Pea Protein Powder and Raw Nice Pink Pitaya Powder for GERD and Gastroparesis (Vegan + Dairy-Free + Gluten-Free) [AD-Gifted]

This post contains gifted items from Pretty Pea Protein that has been marked in line with my disclaimer/policy

This dreamy Tropical Protein Pink Porridge with Pretty Pea Protein Powder and Raw Nice Pink Pitaya Powder has been lovingly made in mind especially for Gastroparesis.

This Protein Porridge recipe is absolutely perfect for those chilly mornings and for when you want to start your day off with something packed full of vitamins and hearty goodness.

During the past few months, I’ve needed to rebuild my strength after months of a long, insidious Gastroparesis flare. Making protein-packed porridge has become my favourite way to pack in as many vitamins and minerals my body needs first thing in the morning.

The recipe I have created for today is a tropical nourishing bowl of pink porridge made with Pretty Pea Protein and Raw Nice’s Pink Pitaya Powder that is deeply inspired by my Caribbean travels from earlier this year.

This creamy, dreamy whimsical hot pink Porridge is an all-vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free bowl of comfort and vibrant colour that will warm up your mornings no end!

Protein Powders for Gastroparesis with Pretty Pea Vegan Protein

Before I dive into the recipe, I wanted to pause and touch on how protein powders can be very beneficial to those that, like me, suffer from Gastroparesis.

Gastroparesis (also called delayed gastric emptying), is a chronic digestive condition.

With Gastroparesis, the vagus nerve and/or muscle damage can impair the stomach’s ability to contract and release properly.

Some refer to Gastroparesis as having a paralysed stomach (this is because Gastro equals stomach and paresis equals paralysis). This means that food and fluid in the stomach remain there for longer, hence Gastroparesis being described as “delayed emptying”.

I have lived with Gastroparesis for many years, and I write as extensively as I am able to about my experience here. To learn more about the condition I recommend starting with my post: ‘What Is Gastroparesis?’

As a result of having Gastroparesis, eating and drinking can be very distressing and troublesome. Every single day, I live with constant nausea and an internal battle of creating meals that my body is able to digest.

In this post I wrote called ‘Natural Therapies for Gastroparesis’ I touch on how I approach eating and drinking alongside natural remedies that help to soothe me when I need it.

More recently, I have been working with a Dietician to enable me to maintain a healthy weight as many who have Gastroparesis like me will understand how challenging this is.

When Gastroparesis patients like me experience flares, it can lead to long periods at a time of being on a liquid diet. And thus, in order to gain as much strength as possible, many will add protein powders to their liquid meal replacements.

Protein is an essential macronutrient and an important part of a balanced diet, and especially so when you have Gastroparesis. However, many forms of high protein foods, like animal products, legumes, dairy products, nuts and seeds can be extremely difficult to digest if you have Gastroparesis and many, including myself, have had to exclude them from their diet in order to reduce symptoms. And this is where protein powders can be a huge blessing!

Having said that, there is an overwhelming number of protein powders on the market and most contain whey protein that is unsuitable for me as I have a dairy intolerance. Moreover, they can also be filled with ingredients that aggravate symptoms in general, particularly sugar, alcohols, artificial ingredients etc.

I have also (as always!) been on the hunt for something that felt whimsical and enchanting to me, because if you’re here reading this, I’m pretty sure you’ve noticed that’s how we roll around here!

I am therefore so delighted that it was complete fate that I was so kindly sent Pretty Pea Vegan Protein to use in this recipe.

Pretty Pea Protein is a vegan protein powder that is not only incredibly pretty and ethereal to behold, but packed with superfoods such as Spirulina, Green Tea, Acai Berry and Chicory Root. All known for their potency and power for centuries.

I know the idea of a tropical porridge recipe probably sounds a little odd. But trust me, this wondrous looking porridge, packed full with all the tropical flavours you could imagine, is guaranteed to brighten your mornings.

To make this extra decadent, I love making this porridge with coconut milk because it truly lifts the subtly sweet flavour and extra-creamy texture.

For a truly playful touch why not add some pink colouring? I’m in love with Rawnice’s Pink Pitaya Powder. The taste is ever so lightly sweet but also blends with just about anything. The colour and whimsicality it adds to a relatively simple dish like porridge are so fun to work with. Soon enough, trust me, you’ll be tempted to make all your food pink!

I approach eating with as much enchantment and whimsicalness that I can bring to my life because it truly feels more inviting to nourish my body this way when I have Gastroparesis.

So, not only is this magical porridge a vibrant pink, but I have also topped it with tropical fruits, coconut chips, edible flowers, granola and edible glitter so that each bite takes me one step closer back to my memories of being in the Caribbean from earlier this year. I even used some of my precious Guava Jam that I got in Barbados (I need to go back just for this alone!)

Total Time 15 mins
Course Breakfast
Cuisine Caribbean
Servings 1

Equipment

  • 1 Pan
  • Measuring spoons and jugs/cups

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 Cup Gluten-Free Oats
  • 3/4 Cup Plant-Based Mylk (I'm using Coconut Milk today)
  • 1 tbsp Pretty Pea Protein Powder (1 tbsp roughly equals 1 scoop)
  • 1 tsp Rawnice Pink Pitaya Powder
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Coconut Oil
  • 1 tbsp Gluten-Free Granola (I'm using Deliciously Ella)
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Chips
  • Fruit toppings of choice (I'm using Strawberries and Bananas)
  • 1 tsp Jam (optional. I'm using Guava Jam)

Instructions
 

  • Preferably allow your oats to soak in a bowl of filtered water overnight. This helps make it easier to digest in the morning (especially if you're making this and have Gastroparesis). If this isn't possible, add a small amount of water to the dry oats and leave for 20 minutes to absorb.
  • Add your oats to a pan on a medium to low heat. Add the milk, vanilla and coconut oil and stir gently together.
  • Next, add the dry ingredients: the Pretty Pea Protein Powder and the Rawnice powder. Stir and fold this in gently. A small tip if you're using the Rawnice powder: Use the back of a small teaspoon to break up the powder so it's truly vibrant and not lumpy.
  • Cook your oats until you're happy with the texture and they are nicely warmed through.
  • Add to your bowl of choice and get creative with your toppings! I applied a semi-circle of granola to the outside, then add coconut chips beside this. I then arranged my fruit around this. I chopped up strawberries and then used a star-shaped cutter for the bananas!
  • To finish, I added a dollop of tropical Guava Jam. This is an optional step!

Notes

Rawnice Pink Pitaya Powder

The hot pink colour to this porridge has been created with the Rawnice Pink Pitaya Powder. Isn’t it just fabulous? It reminds me of the flamingos I was blessed to see in Bonaire! Rawnice’s Pink Pitaya Powder is made from the flesh of the red dragon fruit, a tropical cactus fruit native to South America.

Once ripe and harvested, the red dragon fruit is processed and freeze-dried into this gorgeous vibrant pink powder that is an Instagram dream!

By the way, how cute is the coconut bowl as well? It truly lifts the tropic vibes! I got it from Coconut Bowl. If you’d like to get one you can click here. Fancy a discount on your own coconut bowl for all your tropical creations? Enter 768980EF at checkout right here (this is an affiliate link).

Pretty Pea Protein Powder

Pretty Pea Protein Powder provides your body with the building blocks that contribute to growth in muscle mass and maintenance of normal bones. It is also free from gluten, dairy and soy with no artificial sweeteners or added sugars.

The unique formula in Pretty Pea Protein Powder contains a concentrated level of pea protein isolate that provides 72.2g of protein per 100g with an excellent amino acid profile.

If you are using a 25g serving of Pretty Pea Protein Powder, it will provide you with 18.1g of protein, 2.6g of fibre and just 0.8g of carbs. Additionally, this vegan protein powder is naturally low in carbs at less than <1g per serving with virtually no sugars. At only 96 calories per serving, Pretty Pea Protein Powder is ideal for both weight management and calorie-controlled diets.

The Pretty Pea Protein Powder is an ultra-fine powder delicately blended with real superfood ingredients. These include Spirulina, one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet, Green Tea which has been used for centuries and famed for being an antioxidant haven, just like Acai Berry, and finally, Chicory Root that gives Pretty Pea Protein its high fibre content.

One tub is £20.99 for 500g which is truly a great investment considering I use just one scoop at a time. The consistency is that of a very fine powder so it blends like dream in smoothies and into a porridge recipe like this.

The taste is neutral with a touch of sweetness meaning it will really work with every recipe that comes to mind. I barely noticed it here in this porridge, but I love that because I know I can enjoy concentrating on the other flavours that I wish to combine.

Unlike some other protein powders I have looked at, Pretty Pea Vegan Protein contains no hexane or other toxic chemicals which are often used during the pea protein extraction process.

Moreover, this has been created with a conscience, with peas only picked within UK and Europe that have been extracted using just water pressure and flocculation, a process reserved for only the prettiest of peas. The pot is also 100% recyclable container (or fab for customising afterwards!).

If all of this wasn’t enough, Pretty Pea Vegan Protein is hypo-allergenic, bioavailable and easy to digest. This is so important with Gastroparesis, and this no bloat formula makes the perfect protein powder choice for those with certain food intolerances, illnesses and allergies.

I do hope you loved this enchanted, whimsical Pretty Pea Protein Tropical Pink Porridge. I’m also so happy to have found a protein powder that lives up to my branding, who would have thought!

I’d love to know if you re-create this tropical porridge so please do reach out to me on social media or let me know in the comments below what you think. I’ll also be sure to make more recipes with both the Rawnice and Pretty Pea Protein Powder.

Now I’d love to hear from you. Do you love porridge as much as me? What are your favourite flavour combinations? And how would you use Pretty Pea Protein? I’d love to hear all about it so as always, please do leave a comment below.
