I was recently looking for a dessert recipe for a friends daughter who has a dairy free diet and I found it difficult to find a recipe that wasn't really involved and time-consuming.
It's no secret in my house that I have no patience when it comes to desserts as I don't really have a sweet tooth and therefore am not too bothered by them. Consequently, if I am going to make a dessert it must be simple and quick otherwise I will look for another recipe.
This recipe appealed to me because, for one, it has no cream or dairy and, secondly, it involves crepes. I do like a crepe or two!
The no cream/dairy part is replaced by coconut milk, dairy free chocolate and a dairy free crepe recipe.
In the recipe I haven't specified "dairy free" chocolate which you can use if you prefer.
Dairy free or not this is a tasty, cool and different dessert which is probably why it appealed to me.
That being said, it's a really safe recipe to make and could be a lot of fun for kids to be involved with.
You can make the crepes if you choose or you can buy pre-made ones. They are easy to make but if your time is restricted it may just be easier to buy them.
Either way here's a couple of recipes if you don't have one:
Despite the dairy free part this dessert is still quite rich; a result of the coconut milk but combined with dark chocolate and fruit the richness is mellowed out. Whatever fruit is in season will work perfectly as long as it is ripe and juicy. I used raspberries and strawberries.
