Paleo Desert Ideas; recipes and simplicity ideal

Hi

At uni over the year our house has been making dinner for each other and now it's rolled around to my turn. The rules are that you have to do 3 courses and I've got the first two down, I just need some help finding what to do for desert. I think this should be a really good opportunity to show off the Paleo diet and how you can make delicious food without the standard ingredients.

Any suggestions are welcome, but ideally if people could post links to recipes as well? Also, considering the student nature there needs to be some sort of cost consideration.

Thanks

Tom

Whatever desert you do, have a nice big bowl of chopped fruit to go with it on the side. Can't go wrong with fruit salad.

@Axial, the problem is the OP spells dessert as desert, which I wager gives significantly less search results. ;)

I agree! If you want a frozen dessert, you can always blend some of the berries up a little and put the whipped cream berry concoction into a popsicle mold. I do this a lot.

There have been many "favorite paleo dessert" threads in the past. Just type "dessert" into the search box in the upper right and go wild.

Berries and homemade whipped cream. Doesn't get much more simple or budget friendly than that!

There a hundreds of recipes online to try, just google paleo desserts and start salivating.

Here are some that I have liked,

An apple crumble I just substituted honey for the xylitol. http://www.elanaspantry.com/granny-smith-apple-crisp/

This one is not 100% paleo but was a crowd pleaser, so if you allow dairy, people will like it. http://www.theprimalist.com/crustless-primal-cheesecake/

Paleo ice cream is good too, and easy if you have an ice cream machine. So I would suggest figuring out what kind of dessert you want to make and then look for a paleo version on google. Good luck and have fun!

These brownies are super easy to make if you have a food processor. Walnuts, dates, cocoa, maple syrup.

I absolutely love them, my dad wont touch them because they aren't sweet enough, so perhaps add some honey or more maple syrup for non-paleo friends, if needed.

It's hard to go wrong with cookies! http://www.oatmealwithafork.com/2013/03/29/the-best-paleo-chocolate-chip-cookies-ever/

For something simple to make for lots of people berry "cobbler" works well. http://everydaypaleo.com/blackberry-cobbler/

Good luck!
