I still have to think of at least one more dessert (for Sunday). I like to try for us to have a dessert twice a week (one of those days being a Sunday), but since going gluten-free and cutting out gluten-free flour mixes (as part of working towards being grain free), we haven’t done as much baking as we might otherwise do and quite a few of the usual desserts I might make are grain-based, so I’m having to get used to a different way of thinking. ¬†Recommendations would be gratefully received.

I’m considering making the lovely chocolate torte that one of my friends made for when I visited her (vegan, grain and dairy-free – although I’d likely swap the maple syrup for honey, which would move it away from being vegan) which tasted absolutely amazing, but it is rather rich and possibly more a ‘special occasion’ dessert. I’m looking for something a little more ‘every day’ (like the banana ice cream, something that I will be trying for the first time as I have a bag full of over-ripe bananas to use!)

What are your menu plans for the week?
