This head-turning, gluten free trifle recipe is both colorful and delicious. The cherry glaze shimmers over the fresh cherries and while the colorful, contrasting colors catch your eye. Instead of using¬†gluten-free sponge cake, I used chocolate brownies. With layers of sweetened whipped cream, the flavors balance perfectly. Use fresh cherries when they are in season, or defrost frozen cherries when not. Another option is to substitute the cherries for another fruit with matching flavored jam.¬†You can easily turn this into a strawberry gluten free trifle recipe.

Chocolate Chantilly – Rich Egg-Free Chocolate Mousse

The definitions of chantilly is 1. (of cream) flavored whipped cream, usually flavored with vanilla, but it can also be rum or liqueur; and 2.¬†(of food) food prepared or served with whipped cream such as peach chantilly: peaches served with whipped cream which is¬†usually flavored. Chocolate chantilly is a very strong flavored whipped chocolate which contains about 75% cocoa. Because the chocolate is so intense I decided to set some of it aside whip some heavy cream and powdered sugar into it. This enabled me to create a nice layer affect. It creates a beautiful presentation, and once you add whipped cream to the top, it all balances out nicely. With the hot weather we’ve been having, a nice cool dessert that doesn’t have to be baked or cooked long is just perfect. Enjoy!

Sugar-Free Gluten Free Chocolate Parfait

I’ve had several requests for gluten free, Jello instant pudding recipes as well as sugar-free ones. I do not advocate the use of sugar-free jello instant pudding, as it contains¬†aspartame, which is a known cancer causing sweetener. To make this parfait with Chocolate Sugar-Free Fat-Free Jello Instant Pudding¬†it will contain 8 grams of carbs per 1/2 cup. My suggestion is to make my No-Cook Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Sugar-Free Chocolate Mousse, which is pudding-like, and it uses avocado, a healthy fat, and is sweetened with dates. It also does not contain any chemicals or artificial dyes like the package pudding. Nor does it taste bitter. If you’d like to make the no-cook pudding with lower glycemic levels try substituting the dates with a little agave nectar/syrup. Either way, the natural way may be more work, but it’s delicious and a healthier choice. Enjoy! Continue reading “Sugar-Free Gluten Free Chocolate Parfait”
