If you’re lactose intolerant or are just trying to consume less dairy, then you might be interested in these delicious dairy-free desserts. We were very creative when it came to the technique and the ingredients used!
One of the most frustrating things when it comes to being lactose intolerant is that so many desserts are out of reach. And there don’t seem to be many options anyway. But that’s where this list of dairy-free desserts comes in. They are possible and they are delicious!
If you’re only testing the waters of going dairy-free, then we also have some tips on how to get started and you can read them here.
6 dairy-free desserts to indulge in
1. Black bean chocolate truffles
This take on truffles is gluten-free vegan stuff for your sweet tooth. Make yours vegan too, with healthy black beans, cocoa powder, oat flour, and coconut butter. Sweeten them with maple syrup. Coat them in more cocoa powder and get the party started.
2. Vegan doughnuts
Vegan doughnuts, anyone? To make them truly vegan use vegan margarine and soymilk. You won’t need more than half an hour for this. When ready, coat them in powdered sugar and serve them with a jam.
3. Date, walnut, and cashew no-bake cake
You got to like this! In fact, if you’re into cashews, walnuts, and the like you surely will. Our nutty no-bake cake has also sweet dates and coconut oil. And because we didn’t think it was sweet enough, we used maple syrup, too. We paired that sweetness with spiky turmeric and lemon. Interested?
4. Slow cooker coconut and Nutella mini cakes
Let’s “bake” a cake in the slow cooker! You’ll need a little more than 2 hours to craftily combine the coconut and cocoa tastes into a scrumptious dessert. Serve it cut into bars or any other shape for that matter. You can take after us with the garnishing, but you can also let your imagination roam free.
5. Banana and coconut mini bundt cakes with chocolate glaze
Why eat a whole Bundt cake when you could eat a few smaller ones? Let’s make these with mashed banana and coconut oil. And let’s get nutty, too, by adding almond milk into the base mixture and by topping the cakes with crumbled walnuts. And we didn’t even mention the chocolate glaze yet!
6. Citrus terrine
You may have heard about the French dish terrine. Well, this one has nothing to do with that savory dish. Instead, it honors the citrus fruits by bringing orange, grapefruit, tangerine, and lemon together inside a loaf pan. We cover them with a star anise-flavored sweet mixture of white wine and peach champagne, then „forget” about it in the refrigerator for 4 hours.
