5 best gluten-free desserts for summer

 

Festive dinners and lazy lunches wouldn’t be the same without the sweet treats this time of year. But, while sugar is on the menu, you can still go gluten free. Here are some of our favourites to try:

#1 Tropical fruit pizza 

Have you ever seen anything prettier? This recipe uses  coconut flour for the crust and coconut cream for the “sauce”.

#2 Chocolate cherry tart

Cherry season in South Africa is pretty short. But, summer is the time to enjoy them while they’re here! Based on coconut flour, this slightly bitter chocolate and tart cherries make this a taste combo made in heaven!

#5 Avocado chocolate pudding

Who doesn’t love avos? The base of this chocolate pudding, and what makes it creamy, is the avocado. This means you can use a lighter milk, or not even a dairy product at all (like almond milk, coconut milk, etc.) because you’re not relying on it as the main substance. It is then sweetened with agave nectar or honey creating a dessert you wouldn’t feel guilty about eating every night.
