Create a Gluten-Free Beverage Challenge

Gluten-Free Challenge button

Okay, I know it’s not much of a challenge at all to create a gluten-free beverage because, thankfully, most beverages are naturally gluten-free.  I simply thought beverages would be a good challenge for the month of July.

Young Woman Drinking Smoothie ca. 2003 The more challenging things to create gluten-free often require the oven, and in the heat of summer, many of us are avoiding using the oven.  We do want plenty of cold beverages to cool us down, though.

Not that your beverage has to be cold.  I’m just guessing that most of them will be.

To give you plenty of options, I’m including things like smoothies.  If you serve it in a glass, then it qualifies.

To Participate in the Challenge

  • Post your recipe on your blog and include a link back to my site.
  • Come to this blog on a Wednesday in June and link your recipe at my Gluten-Free Wednesdays carnival.
  • The following week I will highlight beverage recipes in my Gluten-Free Wednesday post.
  • You can link to an older post as long as you include a link back.
  • Don’l link up more than two beverage posts per week.

If you don’t have a blog, my hope is that you still work on these challenges at home.  I’d be happy for you to send me an email and let me know what you done.

Beverage Inspiration: There are lots of great ones out there.  Here are a few to get you started.

    This is the blog about the gluten free drink challenge is just did. I linked to your homepage which isn’t working on my computer right now for some reason. Is there anything else I am supposed to do? I posted it to my facebook, fan page, and tweeted about it.

  2. Oh, I love this challenge, Linda! A “challenge” doesn’t have to be super challenging to be fun or appropriate for the season. 😉 I’m totally game. :-) Thanks so much for linking to my crab claws recipe, too. If I didn’t have a bunch of gf beer to review and share with my son and his friends while camping this weekend, I’d be making a batch of crab claws for sure. 😉


  3. I don’t have a blog that I am currently updating, but this is such a fun challenge! I look forward to brainstorming new ideas as well. Thanks for the motivation! :)

    • Amanda, I did not initially intend for the monthly challenges to be a blogging thing. My intent was to get readers to try new things. I’m so glad this one sounds fun to you.
