Wheat, Gluten and Sugar Free Dessert!!!

We rarely have dessert in our home, however when we have guests for dinner I always feel obliged to offer something for dessert. I refuse to serve dishes that are full of wheat, gluten and sugar and I believe in no fuss, healthy food preparation.

The Mini Fruit and Cheese Platter is one of my favourites and I have my husband to thank for this idea. I used to always serve a large platter in the middle of the table which contained a few different types of cheeses, some nuts and an array of fresh fruit and  rice crackers for everyone to help themselves.

My husband, god love him has a few problems with portion control when it comes to cheese. I decided things had to change and so evolved the Mini Fruit and Cheese Platter.

Dinner guests are always impressed with their individual serving which looks very quaint served on a small plate and it stops my husband over indulging.

    That’s a good idea having individual servings for a cheese platter.
