I feel you. Sometimes baking seems overwhelming and you just want to have some quick and easy dessert recipes that can make eating gluten free fun and delicious!

If this is one of those days, I’ve got you covered. Here is a healthy gluten free dessert that will brighten up your day with its amazing colors and its wonderful spectrum of flavors!

You know in Italy we love anything made with gelato… Well, these cute mini cakes are a great dairy free ice cream alternative, and the nutty consistency makes this cream rich and buttery just like traditional gelato! —Ambra Torelli

What You'll Need
  • 50 grams Almond Meal
  • 50 grams Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
  • 50 grams Dried White Mulberries
  • 1/2 piece Cantaloupe
  • 1/2 piece Banana
  • 1/4 cup (35 g) Raw Almonds, soaked
  • 3 pieces Dates
  • 1 piece small Beet
  • 1/2 piece Banana
  • 1/4 piece cup (35 g) Raw Almonds, soaked
  • 3 pieces Dates
  • 2 pieces Passion Fruits
  • 20 pieces Raspberries
  1. Soak the almonds for at least 20 minutes, discard the soaking water and rinse them well.
  2. Prepare the crust by mixing all the ingredients together in a food processor until you get a crumbly dough.
  3. Take a full tablespoon of dough and press it with your fingers on the bottom of 6 muffin silicon molds.
  4. Clean the cantaloupe, dice it and blend it together with the other ingredients in a high speed blender (I use a Vitamix). Process until the cream is completely smooth and velvety.
  5. Scoop 2 tbsp of cantaloupe cream over each nut crust.
  6. To prepare the beet cream, peel the beet, dice it and blend it on high together with the other ingredients like you just did for the cantaloupe cream.
  7. Put the beet cream into a pastry bag (if you don’t have one, you can simply use a ziplock bag and make a small cut at one of the corners) and squeeze out small amounts of cream inside the cantaloupe cream until it pops out creating a nice rainbow of colors.
  8. Store the pastries in the freezer and let them harden for about 4 to 5 hours.
  9. When it’s time for dessert, take the pastries out of the freezer 15 minutes before serving and decorate them with some passion fruit and fresh raspberries.
  10. Enjoy!! Eating gluten free has never been this tasty!
