Oh, dessert! I did answer a similar question with the snacks. The question of dessert really depends on your mindset in terms of what foods are and are not considered desserts. Is desert defined by the time of day you eat it, or by the category of food it falls into (savory and sweet)?
If it’s the time of day, you can easily make some great dessert items out of low-glycemic fruits. A frozen parfait with plain (organic or homemade yogurt) and low-glycemic fruit (like strawberries or blueberries), can be a great treat. Add some allspice or cinnamon to give it a little bit of a kick.
But – I know – you want something more.
Do a quick search online and you’ll find tons of great ideas. The other day I made some almond meal pancakes with a coconut oil glaze. They seem like they’d be sweet, but they were delicious, filling, and satisfied my need for something that seemed like a treat.
If you’re a bit further along in the candida diet, you can search for some raw candy recipes. These are easily made with coconut oil, cacao powder, and your favorite diet-friendly nuts. You mix the oil and powder to make a “chocolate,” drop them into ice cube trays with a couple of nuts. Throw them in the freezer until they harden and twist them out of the trays. You’ll have to keep these in the fridge because heat will cause the coconut oil to melt, but they’re great and (sort of) healthy!
Don’t forget juice popsicles, too! Smash up some of your favorite low-glycemic fruits and pour them into popsicle molds (or into paper cups with popsicle sticks). Freeze them, peel them out of the wrapper, and enjoy a frozen treat that will satisfy your need for a little sweetness without totally destroying your diet!
