30 of the Best Dairy-Free Dessert Recipes

30 Dairy Free Desserts

I have never been a big fan of dairy products since I was very young. When I was in preschool we had a St. Patrick’s Day themed snack time where everything was dyed green including the milk. The food looked okay to me, however,  the milk definitely did not look appetizing, but I drank it anyway. That was a bad, bad idea. As soon as I got home from preschool I threw it all up and so for years I hated drinking milk. Now I drink milk every so often, but it is still not my favorite thing to drink.

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.

    Thank you for compiling all these dairy-free recipes. I have been searching for just the right one to bring for our teens at homeschool co-op. The dairy-free cinnamon rolls above fit the bill!

    Your first few recipes have butter in them. Butter = dairy. I, nor anyone else living dairy free, cannot use these recipes.

      Oops. I totally know better than that. Before my NAET treatments I couldn’t have dairy, except butter, so I forget sometimes. I’ll fix them right away.

        Thanks! Some easy butter substitutes are: shortening, vegan margarine (earth balance is amazing), oil, and ghee (clarified butter, so the milk solids are taken out).

    these look sooo good! the only thing that I would add to this is that you have to be careful about the chocolate you buy. most have dairy in them. make sure that they are vegan or just make your own. I can’t have dairy (recently found out I am intollerant of it) so have had to do a lot of label reading. other than that I can’t wait to try them! thank you!

    Why is it asking me for a password when I click on a dessert? I have made the carrot cake before and love it but now I am not able to get the recipe.
