Gluten Free Chouquettes – Cream Puffs (Dairy or Dairy-Free)

Sugar Free Dairy Free Chocolate & Chocolate Ganache (Gluten-Free)

This homemade sugar free dairy free chocolate or chocolate ganache recipe is delicious! You can use the sweetener of choice as long as it’s not full of fiber. While it contains coconut milk, it does not taste like coconut at all. Chocolate masks coconut flavors. The thinner you make this chocolate, the more uses open up to you. Without any thinning, you can mold into any shapes you desire. If you thin it out a little, you can use it to spread over crackers like I did in the photo. I swear they tasted like chocolate covered pretzels with seeds. (I used Crunchmaster Multi-Grain Crackers.) You can even use this recipe as a filling or topping for desserts or my newest Gluten Free Dairy Free Cream Puffs Recipe and others.)

Gluten Free Whipped Porridge

Gluten Free Finnish Porridge

Whipped porridge is a Finnish tradition and is normally made with farina (cream of wheat used to make cereal or pudding). Traditional versions contain homemade juice from tart berries like lingonberries, red currants, or cranberries. I chose readymade cranberry juice because cranberries are low in Ph but high in pectin, which provides stability/structure for whipping to hold its peaks. Meanwhile, gluten free whipped porridge is something you should try at least once. It’s definitely something kids will enjoy making. Continue reading “Gluten Free Whipped Porridge”
