Two Paleo Desserts You Can’t Resist
Sugars are quite rare in the wild. This fact has put a notion in people’s minds that there could not possibly be paleo-friendly desserts. Modern desserts are usually some of the sweetest foods that you can have. People therefore associate desserts with sugar-laden foods but paleo recipes for desserts do exist. It is very easy to make paleo desserts that don’t use refined sugars and other ‘modern’ ingredients. These two paleo dessert are great desserts for health-conscious individuals.
Paleo strawberry apple parfait
When it comes to desserts, you first feast on them with your eyes before deciding whether or not to eat them. There is a good chance that if you don’t like how a dessert looks, you will probably not eat it – after all you just had a filling meal beforehand. Parfaits are great tasting desserts and they are easy on the eyes thanks to their layers of tasty goodness. There are many paleo desserts for such desserts but the strawberry apple parfait is a favorite of many. The ingredients include:
• 4 peeled, cored, and diced apples
• 2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and quartered
• One large rhubarb stalk, diced
• ¼ cup of water
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• ½ cup coconut milk
• 2 tablespoons of chopped nuts (optional)
1. Cook the rhubarbs and apples using the ¼ cup of water in a large saucepan over medium to low heat. Stir frequently until the apples and rhubarb cook into a thick sauce (usually between 20 and 30 minutes). When finished, let them cool.
2. Mix the coconut milk with vanilla extract and stir briskly.
3. Now you have all the ingredients for the parfait. Take a tablespoon of the vanilla/coconut mixture and make a layer of it in a jar. Add a layer of strawberries and put a layer of the apple-rhubarb sauce on top. You can make more layers in this order if you want. Top off the parfait with some chopped Brazil nuts if you want even more flavor. This recipe will make 2-3 parfaits and is one of the best paleo desserts out there.
Apple Pie Caveman Bars
This is another one of the greatest paleo desserts for dessert. It is extremely easy to make and more addictive than most other paleo desserts. It takes about five minutes to prepare the ingredients and five more to make the dessert. What you need is:
• 2 cups pitted dates
• ½ cup raw macadamia/cashew nuts
• ¼ cup raw almonds
• ½ cup dried apples
• 2 tablespoons cinnamon
• 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
1. Put the macadamia/cashew nuts, dates, almonds, and apples in a food processor or very powerful blender.
2. Pulse the food processor until the nuts, dates, and almonds break into small chunks and put the mixture in a mixing bowl.
3. Add all the other ingredients and mix them evenly using your hands.
4. Use parchment paper and flatten the mixture to snack-sized bars. Alternatively, you can use Ziploc bags to form the mixture into bars.
5. Put the bars in a fridge and let them cool before you eat them.
