Thanks for starting this thread! Ben and Jerry's made a mango lime sorbet. I think I will try this with some lime juice!

I've been particularly lazy lately. Dessert tonight was a rare out of season cantaloupe and cottage cheese. (Which is also what I had for lunch.)

Grilled mango (used the George Foreman) and a little dark rum sauce (brown sugar, dark rum and lime juice reduced) over vanilla ice cream. :P

Thanks for the thread. It's like the hokey pokey. Isn't desert what it's all about? xxx

My desserts have been somewhat curtailed, since I'm on Weight Watchers. However I have found that Jello brand sugar free/fat free puddings made with skim milk are great with fresh fruit. Stir some blueberries into the vanilla, peaches with butterscotch and strawberries with chocolate. So far I've lost 16 pounda and have 20 more to go!

You're welcome.

The lime sounds good, mine was a bit bland, the mango's didn't have good flavor.

Will you share the recipe? I'm allergic to pecans, but walnuts might work, right? Or Macadamian nuts?

My neighbor gave me a huge bag of mangos last night. I call her almost every Sunday and ask if she's in the mood for weird soup for her lunch, and she always agrees. (She said the beet soup had a great flavor but the color kind of freaked her out.) (It kind of freaked me out too!)

I think she paid it forwards and backwards, I've been delivering her soup for two years and only occasionally will eat what she's cooked, even though she understands cc and ingredients and cooking utensils.

I'm having a mango fest this weekend!

Hopefully not too off topic, but I love potato vodka, big ice cubes (the kind you make in a tray, not from an ice maker or a bag of ice, a couple of mango slices and some diet tonic. Schwepps diet is the best in mho. That was my dessert tonight.

Has anyone tried ChocoVine? My daughter-in-law loves it but I had no idea it was gluten-free until I read the review. I bet the ChocoVine Raspberry would be good served over ice cream...maybe topped with some raspberries, too.

I made my husband some white chocolate macadamia popsicles. They're gluten free but I don't do white chocolate. He says they're pretty good though and he's been finishing dinner with one every night. We were out last night and I had creme brulee, I probably need to lay off dessert for a month now. :lol:

Aren't adult popsicles fun? I am really into them, too. My favourites include raspberry cream, blood orange creamsicle, coconut pineapple, herb-infused lemon, pomegranate yogurt and the best of all time chocolate banana with bacon. I am not a chocolate fan but the bacon puts it over the top for me. :D

I got a really good deal on ripe peaches so we have peach cobbler. Just used the recipe from my good ole Betty Crocker cookbook with a few substitutions. I had forgotten how good cobbler is.

My daughter will be having oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. She's away for 5 weeks and had to hunt down the package at the dorm. She was determined to find them when she knew they were delivered! :P

:D:) You're welcome.

(I love my drawstring pants.) I need to go shopping and get some fresh fruits.

Last night I had an ice cream float made with french vanilla and orange pop. Taste just like a cream-sickle, tonight I am having a beer for dessert.

    • Mnoosh,    Can you give us a link to the article you read about the increased risk after being diagnosed and maintaining a strict gluten-free diet??       IMO,   You are over reacting to a misprint or most likely a misread article.
    • Yes!  With dairy, celiacs can often have a temorary lactose intolerance due to damaged intestinal villi (where the enzymes normally are released to digest lactose).  Of course you could be naturally lactose intolerant based on race or age.  It is best to stick to a whole foods diet while you are healing.  Really, is ice cream or potato chips going to provide you with nutritional value?  Stick with naturally gluten free foods like meat, fish, fats,  veggies (even those with carbs like sweet potatoes or winter squash) and fruit.  Avoid that processed junk as you may react to the additives right now.  Later, you can add back in dairy (test) and other foods you miss and crave.   Good luck!  
    • Take a deep breath and calm down!    The incidence of cancer with Celiac Disease is rare.......it can happen but the vast majority of people never have that experience.  You may have somewhat enlarged lymph nodes due to inflammation from undiagnosed Celiac but that will all calm down and go away once you get going on the diet.  Believe me, there are many of us that have things happen during the diagnosis and early recovery period and everything turned out just fine.  There is an elevated risk for some cancers with Celiac but that risk goes back to that of the general population after a couple of years on the gluten-free diet. I cannot remember the exact time frame but it is somewhere between 2-4 years, I think.  So many of us went years without a diagnosis and when it was all figured out, we have gone on to be healthy with little complications.  Really...do  not worry about this.  Concentrate on learning all the ins and outs of this disease and how to live gluten free happily.  We are here to help you and guess what? The diet is not as bad as some make it out to be. Many things can be made gluten free and are every bit as good as their gluten counterparts. The diet may not be convenient but it is not hard. I would not lie to you!   
    • Well....one common symptom that most celiacs have when they are diagnosed (or undiagnosed) is anxiety.  So, there is a risk of cancers, but science has demonstrated that that risk goes down on a gluten free diet (if you have celiac disease).  In goes down to the same risk as those without celiac disease.   I kind of was a basket case.  I drive my family a bit crazy because I was anxious.  I felt a bit stupid too.  I guess I had a little brain fog going on too.  All that resolved after I healed. Welcome to the fourum.  Read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping" (pinned at the top of the page) and learn about hidden sources of gluten and cross contamination.  I think most of us do not worry about cancer. We mourn the freedom to eat anything anywhere!   I did not have swollen lymph nodes, but I am sure others have and they did not have cancer.  Hopefully, they will chime in and set your mind at ease.  If not, you can search for "lymph nodes" at the top of the page (little magnifying glass).  There are lots of members with the same issue!  
    • I was recently diagnosed as having celiac and to be honest the part I'm having the most trouble with isn't the change in food or lifestyle. I'm really upset about what I've read about the risk of cancer increasing with celiac disease. I think this is playing into my fears because I currently have lymph nodes all over my body-my Doctor says they are not considered swollen or concerning, but I don't usually feel nodes. The lymph nodes and horrible diarrhea for the last 3 weeks were what got me into the the doctor for lab work. My blood work came great so I'm wondering if anyone else experienced lymph nodes reacting when they found out they were celiac? Also how do you deal with anxiety surrounding the increased risk of cancer? Thanks!
