If you’re looking for a light, healthy dessert that’s also gluten and dairy free, then look no further! This healthy holiday trifle is easy and delicious!
Well, we made it, y’all! We got through Thanksgiving, and hopefully enjoyed all of the family time, good food and conversation. We all have so many things to be thankful for, don’t we?
I know that I am thankful for everything that we’ve been beyond blessed with. It’s definitely been quite a year, full of adjustments for me. But I’m getting more healing every day, and I’m learning so much about how to cook healthy, delicious alternatives for my family without sacrificing flavor.
This healthy holiday trifle is a delicious, low sugar, gluten free, and dairy free holiday dessert.
- 6 gluten free ladyfingers or wafer cookies
- 1/2 cup frozen mixed fruit
- 1 cup coconut whipped cream
Put 4 of the ladyfingers in a plastic bag, and crush until it's crumbs.
Layer the crumbs on the bottom of 4 dessert cups.
Scoop whipped cream on top of the ladyfinger crumbs.
Layer frozen fruit on top of whipped cream.
Top with more whipped cream and add half of a ladyfinger.
This coconut milk whipped cream is a delicious, healthy alternative and a great addition to desserts!
- 1 can of chilled coconut milk scoop out the cream, and leave the liquid for another use
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla
Mix on high until fully combined.
Layer with the pumpkin pie mix.
This is such an easy recipe to throw together, which is perfect for last minute get-togethers. It’s also a great one for kids to help with! My 4 year old loved being my “big helper” and putting the layers in.
Easy recipes are the best recipes, and this healthy holiday trifle fits the bill. The whipped cream is the hardest part, and it’s not hard at all. If you want to make this super quick, keep some whipped cream in your fridge for tossing these together at the last minute!
This whipped cream is also a perfect topping for the refined sugar-free pumpkin pie parfaits that I made, which were a huge hit. When something has no artificial ingredients, and doesn’t bloat you or make you feel like junk afterward, it becomes a regular in the indulgent dessert rotation around here!
