Gluten Free Dessert Idea

Are you suffering from a sweet tooth but are sworn to gluten free foods? Just because you have a gluten free diet doesn't mean that you can't indulge in delicious desserts. Here is a great recipe to satisfy your craving:

  • 4 teaspoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 8 tablespoons of pineapple juice
  • 2 ripe plantains, halved and peeled
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
  • Pinch of cloves, ground
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of rum
  • Vanilla ice cream

To begin, melt the butter in a frying pan. Next, add lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of pineapple juice and the plantains. Sprinkle with the spices over the ingredients in the pan and sauté for about 15 minutes. Mix in the brown sugar and continue to sauté for about 15 more minutes. Continue to add pineapple juice as needed. Finally, add rum and cook until the sauce reach a desirable consistency. Remove the pan from the heat and serve with a big scoop of ice cream.

A Gluten-free diet means eliminating all gluten and wheat so sugar is okay in moderation. If you are trying to eliminate sugar in your diet then you might want to consider going on a yeast-free diet. See appropriate category to give you an idea or you can check online for 'yeast-free diet websites'.
