I love to cook and try new foods and recipes. I try to do my best to incorporate healthy foods, but sometimes I need a little comfort food.
Danish Dessert - A Vegan Alternative to Gelatin
Did you realize that gelatin is an animal product? It is created from a substance gleened from under pig or cattle skin.
Sorry, did I just ruin your favorite wiggly dessert for you?
Danish Dessert on the other hand is thickened with cornstarch and tapioca flours. It is not as stiff as a gelatin dessert. Danish Dessert cannot be molded. It is not as soft as pudding. It is somewhere between the two. It is very smooth.
Absolutely delicious, it just bursts with a sweet to tart flavor. It comes in strawberry and raspberry. Raspberry is the most common and by far my favorite flavor.
Raspberry Danish Dessert - 12 packages
Twelve packages may seem like a lot, but it's not. Once you taste this and start using it in recipes you will let your imagination run wild.
Then, you will want to share it with your friends, give them a package and let them see how great it tastes.
Danish Dessert Pie With Fresh Raspberries
Traditional Gelatin Desserts Are Animal Based
The gelatinous material used for gelatin desserts is scraped from under the skin of cattle and pigs.
Did you realize gelatin was an animal product?
Danish Dessert Raspberry Pie
The pie is a little on the tart side with sweet undernotes.
This is quick and easy to make and the results are wonderful. When made with a ready made graham cracker crust, this takes only 10 minutes.
It may be served with a dollop of non-dairy whipped topping or whipped cream.

What's Your Danish Dessert Experience?
Danish Dessert was introduced in the United States in 1939.
By the way
Danish Dessert is made in the United States not in Denmark.
I do believe there is a version made in Denmark, but that is even harder to find.
