It’s a hot summer day and you’re craving a sweet gluten-free treat. There are many gluten-free desserts you can make at home, but when it’s hot outside, you probably want something refreshing that will cool you down after being in the heat. Don’t worry, we have you covered! Here are our favorite top 8 refreshing gluten free summer desserts.
Chocolate Covered Fruit Pops
Fruit is naturally gluten-free, making this recipe quick and easy to make. Simply, dip your favorite fruit in pure melted chocolate and pop them into the freezer. After an hour or two, enjoy a nice refreshing treat that’s gluten-free and just the right amount of sweet.
Frozen Strawberry Lemonade Pie
This fluffy, light, and refreshing no-bake dessert is the perfect treat after a long, hot day. The base is gluten-free graham cracker crust. From there, a delicious filling made with beaten egg whites and real strawberries is added. After the filling is added, freeze the dessert to enjoy the next day. No bake gluten-free is easy to achieve!
Greek Yogurt Cheesecake
Cheesecake is probably one of the best desserts of all time. Maybe these individual Greek yogurt “cheesecakes” aren’t really cakes, per say, but they are absolutely delicious. A simple combination of Greek yogurt, egg, sugar, vanilla, cornstarch, and a single strawberry, for garnish, can make for the perfect ending to a summer day.
3-Ingredient Creamsicle Ice Cream Floats
Sprite. Orange juice. Ice cream. Combine all three of these delights and get one heck of a sweet treat. These three ingredients make a gluten-free creamsicle that is beyond refreshing after a long day in the sun!
Mint Chocolate Chip Avocado Ice Cream
I know, I know…avocado ice cream? Can that even be any good? Well, the answer is yes. It’s non-traditional, has only five ingredients, and zero gluten. You won’t even need an ice cream machine. It has a creamy texture, refreshing feel, and serves as a healthy alternative from artificial flavored treats. Mint chocolate chip avocado ice cream is about to be your new favorite summer dessert.
4-Ingredient Fruit Punch Pudding Pops
That is, unless these become your next favorite… Alright, so everything on this list is a contender, but fruit punch pudding pops are also easy to make with only four ingredients. These treats are based on pre-packaged pudding mix and any flavor of juice. The best thing about these pudding pops is their texture. These homemade pops don’t become icy or crystallized, once they are frozen.
Pineapple Soft Serve
Pineapple soft serve might be one of the quickest recipes you can whip up when you’re craving a refreshing gluten-free summer treat. In my college town, there was a pop-up stand called “Pineapple Whip” and I promise you, it was 100 times better than ice cream or custard (even though most ice creams and custards are gluten-free as well). Anyway, you only need three ingredients and 10 minutes to make creamy, smooth, pineapple soft serve ice cream.
Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles
If you already enjoy eating yogurt with fruit, making these frozen strawberry yogurt swirls is something you absolutely need to try. You’ll blend strawberries and lemon juice in a blender to create a liquid mixture. Combine that mixture with yogurt, pour in a mold and then place popsicle sticks in the mold and freeze. Quick, easy and refreshing!
