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.
