I’m looking for all of the Dairy Free Desserts I can find. My pregnancy cravings for something sweet are intense. Enjoy these dairy free desserts.
As I lay in bed at 6am on a Saturday morning, my pregnancy cravings are running wild. My mouth is watering over just a though of my favorite doughnuts from a local bakery, but knowing they aren’t dairy free and usually result in quite the belly ache, I am going to stick to Van’s waffles for breakfast.
I’ve taken to Pinterest to round up a list of dairy free desserts that my fellow anti-milk friends and I can enjoy. These are ALL dairy free versions of my favorite sweet treats. I have a feeling I will be making one of these for dinner tonight…
Strawberry shortcake makes me think of New England summertime at my parent’s house. Growing up my parents used to grow strawberries, so I had an endless amount of one of my favorite fruits right in our backyard. Served over a piece of shortbread and topped with whipped cream, eaten right in the backyard as the sun sets.
I’ve was never a fan of the cookie – whipped topping – pudding combination until they served it to me in the hospital after I had Annabelle. Obviously their version was not as fattening and loaded with milk – but it was so scrumptious that when we came home from the hospital, I asked my Mom to fill my fridge with tiny single servings of homemade banana pudding. Since I went dairy free I haven’t had any – but lately it’s one of those dishes I can’t get out of my mind.
You know those Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies they sell at the grocery store? I could eat a whole box of those when I was in middle school. I used to hide them from myself because my Mom wasn’t too keen on buying such a junky snack for my lunch bag and I had to make them last. I saw them on display a few weeks ago and talked myself out of buying them. Nothing good comes out of a pregnant girl at the grocery.
Dairy Free Peanut Butter Cookie Bars
Sometimes cookies just taste better as bars. Rarely does one find a peanut butter cookie or bar at a party on the dessert table because everyone is nut-free these days. I’m not though – and there is something about a chewy, peanut butter-y square that makes my taste buds sing.
I’ve always been a fan of apple crisp – and making it dairy free is SO easy. One just replaces the butter with Earth Balance. I’ve actually made dairy free apple crisp on more than one occasion in the last two years. I prefer my crumble without oatmeal and loaded with brown sugar, cooked until crisp on top. I don’t like it with ice cream, so there aren’t any substitutions there!
