Often, we focus so much on making Christmas dinner gluten-free, that we neglect to plan for dessert too.
It’s not until everyone else is half-way through their desserts that you realise you’ve made a terrible mistake.
Trust me, I’ve been there.
That’s why I’ve made a round-up of the 10 best gluten-free desserts available in supermarkets this Christmas.
There’s everything from gateau to trifle, Christmas puddings, profiteroles and more.
Head down to Asda’s free-from freezer aisle to find, quite possibly, the best gluten-free dessert this Christmas season.
Serves 12? Challenge accepted.
2. Marks and Spencer Gluten-free Strawberry Trifle (available in store)
I’ve personally spent way too many years missing out on a serving of the family’s Christmas trifle.
Now I’ve got an entire gluten-free trifle, all to myself.
If at least one of your desserts doesn’t melt in the middle, then you might just be doing Christmas wrong.
It’d be a crime if you didn’t have the option to eat a little Christmas pudding during the festive season.
Luckily, Sainsbury’s gluten-free Christmas pudding has got you covered. It’s milk-free and nut-free too.
What would Christmas be without a gluten-free and milk-free chocolate gateau?
Don’t ask me, I wouldn’t know.
I haven’t been able to find another gluten-free and dairy-free yule log anywhere else this Christmas.
Great job, Asda.
These profiteroles are every bit as good as the gluten-containing ones you probably miss eating every Christmas.
You can find them in the Sainsbury’s frozen, free-from section.
You can’t beat a good sticky toffee pudding, especially when it’s gluten-free and tastes this good.
This is a great example of a product that has no gluten-containing ingredients and no ‘may contain’ gluten/wheat warning whatsoever.
If it is gluten-free, then why not just clearly state so?
The same goes for this amazing Pavlova stack: no gluten containing ingredients and no ‘may contain’ warning.
There really is more gluten-free products out there than you think.
Just as a helpful reminder: According to Coeliac UK, if there are no gluten-containing ingredients and no ‘may contain gluten’ (or similar) statement, then the product would be suitable for a gluten-free diet.
That info might just be the best present you receive this Christmas.
