Are you ready for this Memorial Day weekend? It’s a time of remembrance and honoring those who gave their lives for our country, but also a special opportunity to spend time with family. Many consider this weekend the kickoff for summer. We’ll definitely be kicking off summer with some camping at our mountain property, some delicious food, and an appropriate dessert. Here are some wonderful gluten-free red, white, and blue desserts for all of us to consider!
Okay, one or two might be more pink than red, and some might have some additional colors, but I don’t think you’ll mind! If you see a “white” dessert that strikes your fancy, but you want the red-white-and-blue trifecta for a patriotic presentation, simply add some red and blue by way of topping with red and blue fruit, fruit sauces, fruit jam, or appropriate ice cream/yogurt. Remember that icing alone—for cakes and cupcakes for example—can also give you some perfect red, white, and blue gluten-free desserts. I’m sure you all will have even more ideas. Get creative if necessary and enjoy!
