What is the most paleo dessert when eating out? What desserts are guaranteed to have no wheat/gluten? E.g. mousse, creme brulees, cheesecake fillings?

actually if you can get some grass fed raw goat/sheep hard or semy-soft, it would be nearly guilt-free. Aside from a little acidic, the growth factors arents as gnarly as the ones in cows, milk, and you'll also getting in Vitamin k2, D, CLA, butyaric acid, some complete proteins and a reasonable good profile of polyunsaturated fatty acids. I live in Europe, so it is realy easy to find the afformentioned cheese in buffets/restaurants

Yep, this. But I'm sugar-avoidant and don't eat out but twice a year these days, so take that for what it's worth.

Even if they are wheat/dairy free, they're gonna have sugar...

In my opinion the most paleo dessert is abstention. But that's me, what I do in a restaurant, which I frequent very rarely.

A bowl of berries? Perhaps splurge with some cream?

Flan or Creme Brulee' are OK. Still too much sugar but at least there's some eggs and cream and no flour in there. Probably flourless chocolate cake is OK. Plain old ice cream or sorbet are my personal occasional indulgence but I only get ice cream from sources I trust not to have a bunch of nasty additives.

Coffee with a fruit plate with house whipped cream is about the best you can do -- even better if you skip the whipped cream!

Scotch. Not Paleo but almost nothing else is, unless the restaurant is really trying to be gluten-free. Most flourless chocolate cakes as "tortes" have some amount of flour in them. At a weak moment I recently had most of a piece of cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory and for 2 days my intestines were exploding. They must put not only flour but who knows what oils and fillers in there.

Ice cream is not a bad option, as are sorbets. Almost guaranteed to be gluten-free even though they aren't particularly Paleo. Some places will have a cheese plate. Cheese for dessert sounds very French / bourgeois, but after being Paleo for a while and basically never eating processed sugar, cheese tastes more sweet to me and is a good treat. Note that this isn't really very Paleo either especially if you're avoiding dairy, but hey it's dessert and a treat.

There are no warrabnty cards regarding food these days. Period. You either have two routes: dith them 90% of the time, and choose fruit; or you indulge in and eat it.

I visit a grilled meats and fisg buffet a few times a month, and i feast on salmon, seafood, beef, pork, vegetables, boiled eggs, fruit and such. About 20% of those visits i eat dessert, which is nearly 2-3 times per year. I dont pick for gluten free or vegetable oil free, i just eat what i REALLY like, instead of picking the whole menu.

Yoghurt mixed with WPI and heavy cream with almond slivers, cinnamon and stevia. Not standard restaurant fare but I did find it at a cool health food cafe.
