On dessert duty at your next family get together or dinner party?

What you need is a sugar-free showstopper that you can make ahead of time (so you’re not busy assembling mini pavlovas when Aunt Mavis dishes the latest goss from bridge club).

These set-and-forget desserts tick all the boxes. And, might we say, taste freaking delicious!

1. Rosey Chocolate Tart.

Chocolate lovers rejoice! This tart may taste super decadent, but it’s actually made with just a handful of whole ingredients. You’re loved ones won’t even guess it’s sugar free!*

2. Jazzy Jaffa Cakes.

These little slices of nostalgia hail from our newest eBook I Quit Sugar: The Mini Book of Gut Lovin’ Desserts. Part cake, part biscuit, all gut-lovin’ goodness, they’re sure to please the whole crowd.

3. Zingy Lemon Curd Tart with Chia Seed Base.

Once you’ve tried sugar-free lemon curd, you’ll never go back. This one comes with a crunchy chia-seed base for extra zing!

4. Pecan Pie Slice.

Nutty, chewy, naturally sweet, this take on Pecan Pie is so much healthier than the sugary original (and we reckon it tastes better, too).

5. Mango + Passionfruit Cheesecake.

Gelatin in cheesecake? Not only does it create the most dreamy creamy texture, your gut will love it as much as your tastebuds do.
