I’ve given cobbler and ice cream, both summer classics, a modern twist to make these treats available to those enjoying a diet free of dairy, grain, gluten and refined sugar.
The first trick to success is to read food labels and make sure to avoid sugars or corn syrup. For these recipes, I use Bionaturae organic fruit spread and Santa Cruz organic white grape juice.
The second key is to use your imagination. Fruit sauces can be pureed and served as chilled fruit soups. Ice cream and granita become smoothies by adding a favorite protein powder.
・Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, peaches, pineapple and kiwi all have anti-cancer properties.
・These fruits contain vitamin C, an important antioxidant for the immune system, a powerful infection fighter and a necessity for our skin’s collagen and elasticity.
・Blueberries and peaches contain essential vitamins and minerals for healthy vision. Strawberries support our neurological system. Grapes protect against heart disease.
I have more recipes and lots of resources in my book, The Art of Gluten-Free Living.
