These are 9 of the Very Best Dairy-Free Desserts. Now you can enjoy dairy-free cake, tarts and other dairy-free desserts of all kinds. Our family has always had a sensitivity to dairy but didn’t know it until recently. When we found that out, I started looking for dairy-free recipes. Today I have 9 of the very best dairy-free desserts recipes to share with you.
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 after 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.
My doctor that tested me for allergies told me to avoid milk, cottage cheese and ice cream but I could still eat sour cream and cheese. But I have found that I feel better if I avoid all dairy. That is why I decided it’s time to find a bigger variety of dairy-free desserts and made this list.
Some of the recipes here have some form of chocolate in them. Regular chocolate chips you just buy in the grocery store have milk in them, think about it, that’s why they are called milk chocolate. Don’t use those.
I selected very carefully (hope I didn’t miss any) recipes that call for cacao or dark chocolate vegan chocolate chips (Enjoy Life is a good brand) that don’t have any milk in them. Cacao is pure chocolate with nothing else added like milk or sugar. Just check the labels and make sure the chocolate you buy doesn’t have milk or butter added.
