I bought the ingredients for this dessert at one of my favorite places for bargains, Smart & Final. Did you know Smart & Final has tons of gluten free and organic products? This is the place I go to stock up on my kids’ favorite gluten free pasta too…it is 1/2 the price at Smart & Final!!
Who can pass that up?
I picked up all of the ingredients to make this dessert and a few extras. Do you like to find new bargains to use in recipes? The only thing I added from my pantry was gluten free flour. Hopefully Smart & Final will add this to their products soon :-).
I love so much about this store, even their First Street house brand products.
Did you know that Smart & Final donates back a percentage of each and every First Street sale to their local communities? I love when a company gives back to their community.
