Gluten-free Christmas desserts

Gluten-free Christmas desserts

When Christmas dinner comes around and you have someone with gluten intolerance/allergy among your family or friends, it can be quite difficult to find or create a festive dessert – particularly if you want to serve traditional Christmas puddings, cakes and other treats such as mince pies. The obvious thing to do is to make a special sorbet or semi-freddo which everyone can enjoy. Alternatively, try out some our Gluten-free Christmas desserts below which you can make individually for the person(s) with gluten issues or serve to everyone instead of a normal pudding.

Gluten-free cakes

This no-bake gluten-free cheesecake is one of my favourite desserts to serve after Christmas lunch, as it’s light and delicious and requires no baking at all. The base can be made from gluten-free ginger cookies, which taste just as good as the normal ones. For baked gluten-free cakes, muffins, cookies, slices and brownies see Gluten-free baking.

Gluten-free crumble

Crumble is the one of the easiest desserts to transform into gluten-free. Just use a gluten-free flour mixture, ground almonds or oatmeal instead of regular flour. These crumble recipes have festive flavours and spices – so they’re ideal to finish off a Christmas lunch. Serve them with custard or ice-cream.

Fruity fools, trifle and baked fruit 

Trifle is another dessert that can easily be changed into a gluten-free version.  Also these fools, compotes, baked winter fruits make wonderful Christmas desserts for everyone – particularly  those who want something lighter and more healthy.

Gluten-free Christmas treats

These little treats are perfect snacks at the end of dinner, served with coffee – they also make excellent Christmas gifts! More homemade Christmas gift ideas :-
