Hello perfect dairy free summer dessert recipe! This no-bake stress-free summer time treat is perfect for when you are craving something a little sweet but still want to keep it healthy and nutritious. This would also be a fun and seasonal 4th of July parfait to serve with the red and blue berries! Don’t want to use berries? You could also mix it up with some stone fruits like peaches or nectarines as well.

Sometimes simple is better, and this four ingredient dessert is it.

Ingredients Needed:

Dairy free summer dessert recipeTips for Making Coconut Whipped Cream

  1. Look for coconut cream instead of coconut milk. It will give you more of the solid part of the coconut milk that you need to whip up.
  2. You absolutely must refrigerate your coconut cream. We recommend doing so for 24 hours, but if you are in a pinch, 8 hours will work.
  3. Use powdered sugar as a sweetener. It helps thicken the consistency of the coconut cream. If you were avoiding refined sugar you could use honey, but it will result in a thinner whipped cream.
  4. Add vanilla to give it an extra flavor boost!
  5. Serve immediately. You can make it up to 4 hours ahead of time, but it can harden back up in the refrigerator if it’s left for much longer.
  6. If it does stiffen up too much in the refrigerator you can rewhip it again to get it to a consistency you desire.

  3. Add in applesauce, egg , and butter and mix to completely combine.  Using your hands, roll dough into 6 balls and then using your hands pat the balls into a biscuit shape about 2-1/2" in diameter and set aside.
  4. In a large bowl mix together the blueberries, strawberries, lemon zest and juice, arrowroot, lemon and sugar until well combined and pour into a 9 x 13 inch baking dish or large cast iron skillet.
  5. Top berries with the the biscuits. Sprinkle biscuits with extra sugar if adding.

Recipe Notes

  • Can you omit the arrowroot? It helps thicken the berry mixture! It will be watery without.
  • You can use a mix of other berries, too!!
  • If cooking with frozen fruit, bake an extra 10 minutes uncovered.

This vinaigrette screams summertime! Made with fresh strawberries, tart balsamic vinegar and salt and fresh ground black pepper to round it all out it will be perfect for a spring or summer salad! I also like to use it as a marinade for chicken of for a tart and sweet dip for fruits or veggies. 

It’s a great way to use up all those fresh, ripe strawberries! They can be slightly overripe, just be sure to test a strawberry from your batch to make sure it tastes good on it’s own.
