Here in St. Louis it’s the perfect time of year to start entertaining outdoors and indulging in gluten free Pina Colada dip! The evening weather isn’t too hot and it’s not too cold. Just the perfect temperature for enjoying patio life with friends and family. Especially before the summer heat is upon us! St. Louis is notorious for being hot and humid during the summer months so we take what we can get on the patio before July. I’m always on the hunt for perfect refreshments to serve on the patio and this gluten free Pina Colada dip recipe fits the dandiness factor. It’s a refreshing and healthier dessert option for patio dining!
Make it even more dandy with some patio lights.
I cannot wait for my family to taste it and would love for you to let me know what you think as well! Dandy or not?
