These are 25 of the Very Best Dairy-Free Dessert Recipes. 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. When we found that out, I started looking for dairy-free recipes. Today I have 25 of the very best dairy-free dessert 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 cocao 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.
Many of these recipes are also gluten-free and vegan, 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.

You can’t get much easier than this. Seriously, there are only 4 ingredients in the fudge and most of the work is done by the food processor and the freezer. The ingredients are all healthy but it’s still creamy and rich and everyone will eat it up real quick. Don’t be so skeptical, give it a try, I don’t think you’ll be sorry.
These pecan bars have a thick, light crust topped with a caramel sauce that’s easy to make, then you put the chocolate chips on top. There is a lot of good stuff going on here. Namely stuff like texture, crunchy and gooey treats you’ll crave. Sorry, but yes, you do you to share.
Gingerbread is the perfect comfort food especially during Christmas time. I can’t think of anything that smells more like Christmas than gingerbread. This gingerbread loaf is kind of like a cake but made in a loaf pan like banana bread. It reminds me of gingerbread cookies but this is way easier to make.
