I think the hardest thing for me since getting diagnosed is missing out on certain ‘desserts’ pastries, cakes etc. I’ve often stared longingly at my gluten eating friends/family as they devoured delicious looking sweet treats.
Tesco’s then introduced gluten free profiteroles, amazing you say….. unfortunately these are not dairy free. So I continued to stare longingly as others are those cream filled eclairs etc.
I recently got told about Sainsbury’s free from chocolate eclairs. I loved these SO much. Unfortunately there is not a Sainsbury’s that is easy to get to. So I was pleasantly surprised to find free from eclairs in Tesco.
These are free from wheat, gluten and dairy. The box comes with four eclairs in, larger than Sainsbury’s offering (although less in the box)
These are in the free from freezer section of Tesco’s, and are really handy to keep in the freezer….not that they last long as I eat them all far too quickly.
I’m quite bad and enjoy these still frozen, as the cream seems to taste even better like that.
The pastry is light and works well with the ‘cream’. There is lots of chocolate on top of these, and they are all stuffed full of cream.
These are definitely not a healthy treat, but they are delicious.
