End your 21 day cleanse in Royal style with CONTENT’s Guide to an Alternative Jubilee Street Party. With the 4 day celebration only a few days away, the CONTENT team have come over all patriotic. We have pulled together a list of healthy alternatives to our favourite traditional British treats, so you can mark this historic moment in true Brit style!
SCONES AND JAM
No street party would be the same without this tradition. Go gluten-free and try Cannelle-Vanille’s Raspberry and Oat Scones. Just add a dollop of “cream”. No need for jam with these as the raspberries are included.
Ditch the Coronation Chicken and go for a taste of the wild with Earthsprout’s Psychedelic Spring Rolls – tasty and pretty as any picnic. The mango gives it that extra zing and freshness and will be sure to brighten up your party.
In pursuit of the good life… Try these Rainbow-Chard Tartlets instead of the usual luke-warm savories. These tarts, from one of our favourite blogs Roost, are the perfect alternative to your usual puff pastry – light and easy to make – are perfect for a celebratory meal…
Nothing says summer more that strawberries and cream. This take on the tradition uses coconut milk, strawberry, vanilla, mint and ice. This smoothie is as healthy as it is tasty!
Go for “24 Carrot” and get Royal approval with a sparky combination of ginger, grapefruit and carrot juice.
SWEET FOR THE QUEEN
These take a little planning but are well worth the preparation. Frozen Chocolate, Lemon and Strawberry Pops by Green Kitchen Stories are perfect for a hot Summer afternoon.
For the adults make these rose delights…a traditional ice lolly with the addition of fizz and rose petals.
