We are on the verge of the party season people!
If you are entertaining guests over the holiday season, you will love these delicious, healthy desserts.
I like to keep things simple when I’m entertaining family and friends. This wasn’t always the case, I had to learn the hard way. Now I prefer to be spending time celebrating (and drinking champagne) with my guests rather than cooped up in the kitchen cooking all day.
Here are my favourite time saving but impressive desserts, the fact that they are gluten free is just a bonus! I hope your family and friends love them as much as mine.
Strawberry + Mascarpone Tarts (gluten free)
These Strawberry and mascarpone tarts are such a crowd pleaser. Make the bases ahead of time and store them in the freezer. Try a different variation such as grating a bit of lemon zest into some yoghurt to replace the mascarpone and topping with blueberries instead of strawberries. Yum!
Baked Seasonal Fruit (gluten free)
Baked peaches are just about one of my favourite ever desserts. Peaches and nectarines, strawberry and rhubarb or plums and apricots all taste amazing baked on a big tray, doted with a little butter and sprinkled lightly with a little cinnamon and Rapadura sugar. Serve along side big bowls of yoghurt, real cream or good quality vanilla ice cream and maybe some crunchy gluten free granola or nut mix. Summer in a bowl and so easy to prepare.
Summer Crumble (gluten free)
Seasonal crumbles like this Strawberry + Rhubarb one make the most of summer fruit when it’s in abundance and are a great way to serve a crowd. You can easily put this dish together ahead of time and just bake it an hour or so before you want to serve it. So delicious with fresh cream or coconut yoghurt. Try some of these winning combinations; apricot and blackberry, apple and blueberry, peach and cardamom or cherry + pistachio.
If it’s a chocolate dessert you desire, find more decadent, gluten free dessert recipes and ideas in my eBook, Chocolate Indulgence: Healthy recipes for people who love chocolate.
Have fun celebrating everyone!
