A great way to cool off on a Gluten-Free diet is to create fun fruit Popsicles! Moms, this is a fun project for you and your kids! You can avoid too much high fructose corn syrup of store-bought ones and make sure you only have fresh fruit in there (no extenders, and no risk for gluten contamination ;-). And it’s super easy! You can even let them do it and simply lend a hand when they need it.
Ingredients and Materials:
3 Cups Pureed Fresh Fruit or Ready Made Fruit Puree
Pure milk (optional)
Choose from a variety availabe at GERALD.ph’s
Position the sticks in the mold. If using a makeshift mold such as plastic cups or silicone trays, cover the container with aluminum foil or cling wrap and poke through the center with the popsicle stick to help keep it in place.
Pour fruit puree into the molds. To make fun patterns, add 2 tablespoons of pure milk in between the same amount of fruit puree. Dip a spoon in and lightly swirl it around to make swirly patterns.
Place in freezer for at least 5 hours. When ready, take molds out and run the outside under warm water for 10 to 15 seconds and pop the popsicles out. Enjoy! This recipe makes around 10 popsicles, depending on the size of your molds.
Let’s face it! It’s always HOT in the Philippines no matter the rain or typhoons. Even if we’re gluten intolerant, we need to keep cool, eh? Ice creams are one if not the best and most delicious way. It’s tough that gluten can sneak up at us in processed food and can be stealthily there even in frozen treats that we buy. It’s not so easy to spot that chocolate chip cookie dough or brownie chunks are gluten laced, when they are lumped into delicious creamy goodness.
Again, as gluten free stamps are not ubiquitous in groceries locally, you need to be smarter in identifying the gluten ingredients in ice cream. All natural fruit ice creams are a safe bet, or go one better with purely fruit cold treats like sorbet as they would be naturally gluten free. But if you are craving for the creamy and the chunk packed, there are options. GERALD.ph offers gluten free ice cream among its list of gluten-free items that are sure to satisfy.
Here are some new Gluten-Free Ice creams and cool treats you can enjoy!

With 10+ years of expertise in handling frozen goods and a growing demand in guiltless ice cream deliveries, Gerald.ph is very pleased to let you know the newest addition to our gourmet store – Cocolatto!
Cocolatto ice cream is the latest addition to our Gluten-Free shop, as it is dairy-free, diabetic friendly, plant-based/vegan, soy-free, gluten-free, and all-natural, made from real fruit and premium ingredients.
Many of you know us at GERALD.ph for our freshly baked breads and pastries. But I have also heard from some customers to make some gluten-free options options for them. That’s why this year, we also started introducing gluten-free food items so that these customers can also enjoy bread, cookies, muffins, pizza, and more.
In simple terms, gluten constitutes about 80% of the protein in common grains such as wheat, rye, barley and oats. Some people can have an allergy or intolerance towards gluten, so they must follow a gluten-free diet for medical reasons.
Our gluten-free items are prepared in a separate facility from our regular breads and pastries, so there is no fear of cross contamination. Most of our gluten-free items are also vegan (except the gluten-free salami pizza) and dairy-free!
To give you an idea of the substitutes for flour in our gluten-free products, here’s the list for our top 5 best-selling gluten-free items:
Gluten-free chocolate chip cookies (vegan) All-purpose gluten-free flour, baking soda, xanthan gum, flaxseed, coconut oil, coco sugar, vanilla extract, salt, cocoa nibs or dairy free chocolate chips
Gluten-free banana carrot loaf Brown rice flour, sorghum flour, white rice flour, cassava starch, carrots, banana, eggs, brown sugar, coconut oil, cinnamon, baking soda
Gluten-free bread (round) (vegan) brown rice flour, sorghum flour, cassava starch, flax seeds, (with sesame seeds sprinkled on top)
