Although you can find ideas for making unique desserts by watching cooking shows on television, buying specialty cookbooks and browsing the Internet, you might also find it helpful to enroll in a baking class. When creating unique desserts, mix things up by substituting commonly used fruit for more exotic fruits, such as passion fruit, kiwi or papaya. You might like to try preparing unique desserts from different cultures to complement an International-inspired dinner entree. For an alternative to baking, you can use your blender to make specialty desserts like nutritional and unique fruit smoothies with unconventional ingredients.
It may be fun to enroll in a cooking class that focuses on creating unique desserts and sweets. If you have a child who shares your interest, this may be something both of you can enjoy together. Don't forget to bring along a notebook for taking note of how to create unique homemade desserts.
When you prepare international dinner entrees at home, consider whipping up a unique dessert to cap it off. For instance, an Italian-style meal may be followed by a specialty Italian dessert, such as homemade tiramisu or Italian cheesecake. If you plan on serving Indian food, try making kheer, which is an Indian version of rice pudding made with coconut, almonds and pistachio nuts. Recipes for making these sweet desserts can be found online.
Single-sized portion cups may turn an ordinary dessert into something more special. Try making single sized chocolate cheesecake cups, but add different ingredients to modify the recipe a bit. You might want to try ingredients such as Greek style yogurt to give the cheesecake a thicker texture.
Think of how you may modify traditional recipes to create specialty desserts. For instance, instead of serving chocolate mousse, try a fruit flavored mousse. Pineapple mousse may add an exotic twist to the ordinary. This might be a fun idea for an Hawaiian themed party or luau. If you'd like to try exotic fruit desserts, consider making mango ambrosia, made with the pulp of mango, fresh pineapple and bananas. You may also need cream and powdered sugar to make this dessert.
Although desserts aren't commonly made in a blender, you might want to consider making unique sweets this way. Try making banana pudding using your blender, and top it off with shaved chocolate. Smoothies and slushies are other dessert treats you might consider when using a blender.
