I wanted to give you a quick and simple no-bake healthier gluten-free dessert for all of you that are not quite up to baking or just need something easy and utterly delicious for Thanksgiving.
Yes, it’s right under the wire. Pots de creme are so simple, though, that you can put it together in 10 minutes. With only 7 ingredients, you might even have all of them on hand.
I know that they’re not pumpkin. Though I adore pumpkin pie, not everyone does. This is an easy alternative in case someone at your holiday table has pumpkin on their yuck list.
And it’s so good that it’ll make you a little weak in the knees.
Of course I did this my way – traditionally pots de creme (don’t you just love how that sounds when you say it?) uses all heavy cream or part heavy cream part half & half. I lightened this recipe up using part 1% milk, cocoa powder instead of chocolate, and reduced the sweetener.
My healthier chocolate pots de creme are still decadent and oh so smooth. Letting the rich, chocolate creme chill in individual ramekins makes for a stunning presentation as well.
I’m wishing you and your family a very happy holiday full of love. For those of you traveling, be safe. And to all of you, know that you’re on my Turkey Day Gratitude List.
On Friday I have my favorite juice to share with you using some of my favorite juicing veggies. I’m looking forward to hearing about your Thanksgiving, too.
