A light, airy, gluten free cream puffs recipe filled with a creamy and delicious coconut whipped cream flavored with matcha. It’s also dairy, and refined sugar free.
My kids started school again this week so back into our routine we go. I’ve been dreading the end of summer. I may be holding it together on the outside, but inside I’m on the floor throwing a tantrum like a three-year-old. I know many parents look forward to sending their kids back to school, but since we homeschool, I’m the teacher—although they do have a teacher assigned to them who grades everything (so great because I hate grading stuff 👎) which only means more work piled onto my already over-flowing plate! 😩
I gripe about my busy schedule from time to time, but I wouldn’t change a thing about my life. I love my kids being home each day and I feel it’s one of the reasons my husband and I have good relationships with them. We’ve grown much closer as a family over the years and they feel comfortable talking to us about anything. They’re such good kids—very well-behaved and polite…that alone is worth all the extra time and effort!
I will miss our lazy mornings and carefree days though…and all the summer fruits and veggies! 🍉🍓🍍🍑🍒🍅
To celebrate their first day in a new grade, I made one of their favorite sweet treats—gluten free cream puffs! When I make these for parties, I usually fill them with fresh whipped cream or ice cream, but since it was just us (and we all like green tea 💚) I thought I’d make it a little more special and flavored the whipped coconut cream with matcha powder!
They were so. good.
The idea of making gluten free cream puffs may be a bit intimidating, but they’re actually pretty easy to make and are very impressive! Your friends and family will think you slaved away in the kitchen preparing these for them and only you’ll know they where whipped up in under an hour. 😉
If you’re not a big fan of matcha or green tea, feel free to omit the matcha powder and use the plain coconut whipped cream or you can use regular whipped cream or even ice cream. Because there’s no sweetener in the puffs themselves, you can also fill the rolls with a savory filling, like chicken or egg salad or whatever you heart desires…the sky’s the limit! Enjoy!Print
