A fun story about green milk. When my sister was in preschool she had a St. Patrick’s Day themed snack time where everything was dyed green including the milk. She didn’t want to drink the milk but she drank it anyway. That was a bad, bad idea. As soon as she got home from preschool she threw it all up. For years she hated drinking milk.
I found out about 8 months ago that I have a sensitivity to dairy products, which means I’m not allergic to it, but my body doesn’t really like it either. So I have been trying to avoid dairy; at first it was a lot harder to cut out than I had thought.
I hadn’t really noticed until I started cutting dairy out of my diet that I ate a LOT of cheese, yogurt, and ice cream. My absolute favorite dessert is ice cream! I could eat ice cream three times a day and never get sick of it. Over the past few months I have been good at finding meals without cheese and yogurt, but I still eat ice cream all the time.
Since I’m not technically allergic to dairy I just keep eating the ice cream. I finally decided that it would be better for my body if I found dairy free alternatives for ice cream. In the process I found several other dairy free desserts that look AMAZING.
Many of these recipes are also gluten free, which is a plus in my book. So here is my list. Even if you aren’t allergic or sensitive to dairy products I’m sure you will love these recipes as well.
SORRY, there’s only one dairy free ice cream recipes here. If you want dairy-free ice cream recipes, you’ll have to look at my 30 of the Best Dairy-Free Coconut Milk Ice Cream Recipes post.
