DIY: Completely Guilt Free Fruit Salad (Gluten Free Dessert)

12:34 PM

My poor brother has a condition known as celiac disease. Because of this disease he is unable to eat gluten/wheat. Did you know that practically everything that you can buy at the grocery store contains wheat or gluten. He has recently had to cut out dairy products as well as a few other things so that he can heal up and get healthy again. Because of this, I have had the chance, along with my sister and mom, to be creative in the kitchen.

Here is a little dessert that I recently served at my daughter's first birthday.

Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries marinated in a splash of lime juice (real fresh lime juice would be the best, but I used some from a bottle and it still worked out great) and a dollop of honey. I first mixed the honey and lime juice together to make a light and refreshing dressing. I then combined the above mentioned ingredients and let it sit in the fridge for a few of hours before the party. Right before serving I sliced a few bananas into the mix.

By the end of the party the fruit was gone and there was plenty of chocolate cake that was not even touched. It was a huge hit, and even had had my husband begging for more!

It is such a simple mix of flavors, that will make your taste buds and waistline happy!

Have a Happy Healthy Summer!
