Cake Balls ~ Allergy Friendly

It seems that cake balls are all the craze lately and I had the ones Starbucks and they are good and so cute.
I thought I would try and make some for Nathan that are allergy friendly, he loved them.  They are not the easiest to make but so fun to eat.

No more Silk Soy Milk for us

No more Silk Soy milk for us. I have heard that Silk Soy milk now makes their Almond milk on the same line which now means the soy milk may be contaminated with almonds. Not good when you have a nut allergy too.  So I went to their website and here is what I found. 

Does Silk soymilk contain almond and/or coconut?

No, Silk soymilk does not contain nut ingredients, including almond and coconut. However, our soymilk may be manufactured on equipment that also handles foods containing these ingredients. To help ensure against the risk of unintentional contamination, allergen clean-up procedures are standard in all of our manufacturing facilities. Those with severe allergies should always consult a doctor before introducing new foods.
Not safe enough for us to use so we will be finding a new line of soy milk.

Green Oatmeal and Ham?

Today Nathan's class is celebrating Dr. Seuss and they are having green eggs and ham. Nathan is allergic to eggs so I made him green oatmeal instead of green eggs. Sometimes being a mom of a food allergy kid means you need to be creative.
