75 Dairy Free Dessert Recipes

Lactose intolerant dessert lovers unite!


Finding out I was lactose intolerant is on the list of really sad days in my life. At first, I lived in denial for a few months, and eventually I realized I had to let go of the sour cream, cheese, ice cream, and cheesecake goodness.

It was tough. 

For about a year or two, I avoided any and all dairy (I had been too miserable). Every few months I’d give in and have pizza, and although a mistake, I never regretted it. Finally, I went into my local grocery store and bought some lactose supplements (Lactaid). You can’t have cheese all day, every day, but with these, you can enjoy a treat every once in a while. And without suffering any consequences.


Life has been a little better since. 


You have to be very aware of what you eat when you go out too. You never know what will be made with dairy. If you don’t have a Lactaid on you, you might be in trouble. Especially if you’re craving dessert.

I didn’t want to miss out on the deliciousness dessert food has to offer, so my next option is to compile a list of desserts I can enjoy, without even having to worry about dairy. And why not share with you guys as well? I’ve done all the research! I found as many as I can, that will provide options for all different kinds of desserts.

The plan:

This blog post is a compilation of all the recipes I found that looked yummy, and gave us different options. Additionally, I went through Pinterest to find them. If you are a visual person like me, here’s the link to the board, so you can find all of the pins, or follow the board! I’ll be adding to both the board and this list.

The reason I also added this blog post, is because I want to have a discussion in the comments, plus you’ll find the links to the posts directly. And I made sure they all work.

I’m going to make all the ones I would like to try and enjoy, and I’ll let you know how they come out, or how they compare to the originals. I would love if you all shared your experiences with these recipes as well.

Thank you in advance!
