    Dairy-Free Sundae Recipe

    We know that not everyone can enjoy traditional ice cream due to dietary restrictions or personal preference, but fear not! That doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the joy of a delicious sundae – instead, consider trying a fruit-based sundae as an alternative option. Use frozen fruit, such as bananas or strawberries, and blend them into a smoothie-like consistency; top the fruit with some granola for added texture. This is a great way to indulge in a sweet treat while incorporating some healthy ingredients.

    Another fun twist on the classic sundae is to use different types of ice cream, such as sorbet. Sorbet is an excellent option for those who are lactose intolerant or vegan, and doubles as an extra refreshing treat.

    To create a sorbet sundae, start with a scoop of your favourite sorbet flavour, such as raspberry or lemon. Top it with some fresh fruit, like sliced kiwi or strawberries, and add a drizzle of fruity sauce for extra flavour. If you’re feeling cheeky, you can also sprinkle on some chopped nuts or coconut flakes for added crunch. This fruity and refreshing sundae is a perfect dessert option for those hot summer days. So, whether you are lactose intolerant or just looking to try something new, these alternative sundae options are worth a try!
