Ideas for quick and simple desserts are a frequent request from my clients who want to avoid sugars. Here is an extremely easy recipe that provides a tasty and nutritious meal, suitable for an after-dinner dessert, breakfast or snack.
It is very easy to become over-dependent on natural yogurt if you can tolerate dairy, but it isn’t a good idea to be consuming too much of this, since milk products have potential to encourage inflammation. Dairy can also exacerbate mucus production, so if you are struggling with post nasal drip or chronic sinus issues, all dairy is best minimised or avoided.
Dairy-free yogurts can provide a welcome treat, but these are not always an option. Too much soy yogurt can also increase nasal mucus for some, while soy and almond yogurt are not helpful if you are following a low oxalate diet. Coconut yogurt, while being low in oxalate, can be rather pricey, and is not tolerated by everyone.
My Summer Dessert recipe is so easy to make, taking very little preparation time and then about 30 minutes in the oven. This light ‘sweet’ can be eaten straight from the oven, or made in advance and eaten cold, or warmed through. In theory it will last several days in the fridge, however, it is so delicious it won’t stay uneaten for long!
My favourite way to serve the Summer Dessert is to top it with my marrow cream – another simple recipe that takes very little preparation. You can see my original recipe here, but an even quicker recipe follows. Find the way to make my Summer Cream at the end of this blog.
This is another 3-ingredient dessert, that takes little preparation, and just 30 minutes baking. This cream works beautifully as a topping for sunflower seed pancakes, or with linseed biscuits on the side. I also think it completes the Summer Dessert, providing a creamy sauce to serve.
