I first came across this simple dessert in Austin at a food cart. It was such a delightfully simple and yet delicious treat that I’m surprised it’s taken me so many years to recreate it myself.
Making these frozen banana desserts is super easy – you basically only need some ripe bananas and some chocolate for dipping it into.
If you’re not aware of this, when bananas are frozen, they become very creamy in texture. So much so, that frozen bananas blended is often used as an easy dairy-free ice-cream substitute.
I’m a huge fan of simple desserts, and it doesn’t get much simpler than some fresh fruits! If you have trouble finding fresh pineapple, then you can find canned pineapple slices in many stores (just drain them before using). You can also use frozen pineapple chunks instead of the slices for a different look.
These raspberry white chocolate fat bombs (AKA keto desserts) are absolutely delicious and easy to make.
If you don’t know what fat bombs are, they are often desserts (although they can also be savory) with very little carbohydrates/sugars but lots of healthy fats. They’re also usually bite-sized so they’re perfect as snacks. If you want to know more about fat bombs, this article explains all about what they are and how to create your own.
I first had baked pear for dessert at Alison Golden‘s house several years ago, and I was recently reminded of it again when I had a similar dessert at a restaurant in Porto, Portugal.
Baked pears are actually really easy to make but they are a fancy Paleo dessert that will wow people. Most baked pear recipes use autumn or winter spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, but I found the addition of ginger really helped to make it an anytime dessert and keep it AIP-friendly. There’s a very light spiciness that enhances the sweetness from the pears and the honey coating.
Many baked pear recipes are also made using pear halves, but it’s way easier if you don’t have to cut up the pear and hollow out the core. (I like keeping recipes easy!)
A few notes about this baked pear recipe:
This baked pear recipe doesn’t require much preparation, but it does need a full hour in the oven for the pears to get properly soft. I’ve seen some recipes (like Jamie Oliver’s) require less time in the oven, but I find the pears taste so much better when they’re tender and soft (unless of course you’re using super ripe and soft pears to begin with). So, if you’re making this for dinner, make sure you start it well in advance. You can of course, also serve this dish chilled instead of straight out of the oven. That’s how the restaurant served the baked pear dish I ordered.
You can double or triple this recipe very easily – just double or triple the ingredients.
This recipe is both Paleo and AIP-friendly (Paleo autoimmune protocol), but it’s also a fancy dessert that’s often served at upscale restaurants, so it’s perfect if you want to impress your family or guests!
While young green jackfruit has been getting a lot of press for its meat-like texture, ripe version has been used in various Asian sweet jackfruit recipes for a long time.
I’ve eaten a lot of fresh ripe sweet jackfruit already broken into segments in various parts of Asia (from Hainan, China, to Chiang Mai, Thailand). Recently, I started looking for ripe sweet jackfruit recipes and I came up with this one, which is based on this Panasa Mulika recipe. I’ve also seen this recipe called by a few other names like Kathaler Mishti Pakora and sweet jackfruit fritters.
Summer fruits are always so delicious, but if you roast them in the oven, then they become even more delicious. This easy Paleo and AIP dessert recipe features 3 different fruits (2 of which are glazed and roasted in the oven for a short time and 1 of which is served raw after the other fruits are roasted).
I also love the colors in this recipe – the deep red from the cherries, the faint red from the figs, and the golden yellow from the peaches. This dish is a really simple way to enjoy these fruits without too much work. Perfect if you’re on a Paleo or AIP (autoimmune protocol) diet.
Good healthy desserts are hard to come by! But this one is delicious and good for you – it’s full of great fats from coconut, dipped in chocolate, and sweetened only with stevia. If you prefer to use a different sweetener, then please feel free – raw honey is a great option if you’re not keto/low-carb.
These fat bombs are super easy to make, and you can keep them in the fridge until you want to eat one. They’re great also as a quick snack when you’re hungry or craving sugar.

When you’re sticking to an AIP diet (Paleo autoimmune protocol), you want to spend your time and energy healing your body rather than cooking all day long.

If you already have a crockpot, then these AIP crockpot recipes will help you save time in the kitchen.

These Paleo and Keto chocolate coconut cups are so easy to make you’ll be wondering why you haven’t been making these your whole life! Keep a stash of these in your fridge and you’ll never run out of healthy and delicious snacks when you’re hungry. And in case you’re wondering, yes this is a keto fat bomb dessert!
If you dislike using stevia, then add in 1 tablespoon of raw honey instead (you can also use a mixture of both stevia and raw honey to have a sweeter dessert without too many extra carbs).
Another substitution that can be made if you’re not on a ketogenic or sugar-free diet is to see semi-sweet chocolate on top of the coconut cups rather than 100% dark chocolate.
