Festive dinners and lazy summer lunches wouldn’t be the same without the sweet treats this time of year. But, while sugar is on the menu, you can still go gluten-free. We've scoured the web for some delicious options.

Here are some of our favourite gluten-free desserts to try this summer:

#1 Tropical Fruit Dessert Pizza

#5 Avocado Chocolate Pudding

Who doesn’t love avos? The base of this delicious yet healthy chocolate pudding, and what makes it creamy, is the avocado. This means you can use a lighter milk or skip the dairy completely (like almond milk, coconut milk, etc.) because you’re not relying on it as the main substance. It is then sweetened with agave nectar or honey creating a dessert you wouldn’t feel guilty about eating every night.
