Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free & Vegan Coconut Pudding

After a naturopath put my younger sister on a gluten-free and dairy-free diet, we have been struggling to find some sweet desserts that she can eat with her new dietary restrictions. Sarah doesn’t want to give up eating yummy foods, so we spent the afternoon in the kitchen experimenting with some gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan ingredients.

Serving

This coconut pudding has endless opportunities when it comes to serving and adding toppings! We scooped our coconut pudding into margarita glasses and topped them with rasberries (my favourite), leftover coconut shavings, cherries, ginger cookies and chocolate sprinkles. When paired with our basil tea recipe, these decorated coconut pudding glasses are perfect for a get-together with friends, a cute tea party or an out-of-the ordinary snack.

For parties, we love the idea of a topping bar! Try putting scoops of the coconut pudding in bowls and setting out a variety of toppings on a table for your guests. Each guest can create their own mixtures, and this dessert is guaranteed to satisfy all of your guests! Guilt-free, great-tasting desserts are always a hit.

    • The majority of wordpress themes are mobile friendly compared to other blogs that I’ve viewed on my phone. I’d google the best themes for mobile views (google knows best)! However, from personal experience, the oxygen theme looks great as well as the “Suits” theme. Good luck and hope this helps!

      Love, Jessie
