I looked for more natural, healthier, simpler recipes that can make your dessert a bit fancier for this holiday. And I found a few things you can serve with fruit in or on, or stack a few of these ideas together and make something quite incredible. And this way, you know exactly what is in your food. Bonus for your family, right?
I did include a few chocolate thingies cuzz I have choco-holics around me… (pouts) But the last thing you want or need everyday is Death by Chocolate! (NOOOOO! I won’t include that recipe!) Have fun playing with your food!
top – All it takes is castor sugar, dark chocolate and cold water to make chocolate dirt which you can use to top a lot of delicious desserts.
For puff pastry , it takes flour, salt, cold unsalted butter and cold water
For strawberry drizzle , it takes sliced strawberries, sugar and lemon juice.
I’d go for slivers of almonds , rather than whole, then add cayenne pepper, kosher salt, honey and raw sugar.
For a no bake custard it takes the pulp of a mango, coconut milk and the juice of an orange
An almond flour cake with lemon has the usual fusses of egg, baking soda, sugar.. but can be made with almond flour and lemon rind for a change or if you need to all the time.
bottom – For chocolate crust , it takes sugar, flour, cocoa powder, salt and melted butter.
