25 Easy Dairy Free Desserts Recipes

1. Vegan Cheesecake

Looking for something a little different?

Try this vegan cheesecake!

This decadent dessert is the stuff of cookbooks and TV shows.

It’s made with cashew cream, nutritional yeast, and a simple blend of spices.

The result is velvety smooth and super indulgent.

It’s also super nutritious since it has wholesome ingredients.

So if you need to boost your protein intake without overdoing it on the calories, this recipe will do just that.

2. Raspberry Crumble Bars

Are you ready for a dessert that will knock your socks off?

This raspberry crumble bar recipe is the perfect blend of sweet and tart.

The crumble crust is light and buttery, while the filling is rich and fluffy.

I know it sounds like a lot to ask for, but each slice packs enough flavor to please any palate.

Plus, these bars are made with just five ingredients!

It’s such a simple way to satisfy your sweet tooth.

3. Dairy Free Brownie

This recipe is a must-have in my house.

The chocolate brownies are super fudgy, but the added dairy-free substitute makes them extra decadent.

I like to top mine with chopped Reese’s Pieces or M&M’s for that extra sweet and salty flavor.

Just be sure you don’t overdo it!

These things are very good, but they can get real addictive.

4. Lemon Blueberry Cake

Lemon blueberry cake is a moist, fruity cake with a citrusy kick.

And it’s the perfect dessert for any summer party.

It’s got juicy blueberries and tangy lemon in every bite.

And it’ll be sure to satisfy your sweet tooth!

Serve this light and refreshing cake for brunch or dessert at dinner time.

It’s delicious, healthy, and ideal for entertaining!

5. Rice Krispies Treats

When I was a kid, we had to make our own Rice Krispies treats.

There was no packaged stuff in those days, so you had to mix up the mix and split it into different containers and bags.

I think kids know this; it’s just what they do.

These are like Rice Krispie treats, but with chocolate for an added kick of sweetness.

They also have plenty of ooey-gooey marshmallows in them, along with melted white chocolate that melts over the top!

6. Vegan Blueberry Cheesecake

Sweet and tangy blueberries are the perfect complement to a rich, red velvet cheesecake.

The creamy richness of the cheese is offset by the tart berries.

With a decadent layer of sweetened whipped cream on top, this dessert is sure to please!

It’s also easy to make vegan and gluten-free, which makes it a must-try for any vegan or gluten-free dessert lover.

7. Brownie Trifle

Brownie lovers, I have a treat for you!

This brownie trifle recipe is just as delicious and will make any party extra special.

It’s full of fudgy brownies, vanilla cake mix, whipped cream, and chocolate.

A layer of pudding on top adds a nice sweetness and texture contrast.

This dessert is chock full of decadence but still light enough to indulge in.

8. Chocolate Eclair Dessert

Unless you’re allergic to eggs, you must have heard of an eclair.

Not only is it a traditional French pastry, but one that has been around since the late 19th century.

It has a sweet and crunchy shell with a chocolate filling that’s like a cross between an oreo cookie and a chocolate chip cookie.

As for the name, did you know that the term “eclair” comes from “eau-clairine?”

That means “water-caramel-like,” according to Edna Lewis.

It was invented when they first started selling eclairs in Paris.

There were some minor variations to the recipe throughout history, but they always came out great!

9. Vegan Coffee Cake (with Crumble)

In the mood for something sweet?

This vegan coffee cake is just what you need!

The crumb and texture of this cake are absolutely scrumptious.

It’s topped with a delicious chocolate crumble that’s so good, it’ll make your mouth water.

Plus, there’s no need to worry about finding eggs in this recipe.

The only thing missing is a bit of vanilla.

Seriously, if you want to impress your friends and family with your tasty dessert, make sure you give this coffee cake recipe a try.

10. Vegan Millionaire Shortbread

This vegan millionaire shortbread is just as rich and buttery as the actual Millionaire’s dream.

It features a crunchy, crumbly base, which is topped with a frosting-like sugar and coconut topping.

As if that’s not decadent enough, this dessert also comes loaded with fruit compote for a burst of flavor.

If you want to add extra sweetness to this shortbread, there are plenty of options.

Start with blueberries or watermelon instead of strawberries.

11. Vegan Snickerdoodle Cheesecake

Snickerdoodle cookies are the best of both worlds: soft and chewy, with a crunchy top.

I think this would look great as a pretty layered treat, with some fresh fruit or even chocolate chips.

The vegan cheesecake only needs five ingredients and takes about an hour to make.

It’s sweet, tangy, creamy, and just a little bit naughty.

12. Angel Food Cake

Angel food cake is a much lighter and softer version of banana pudding.

It’s usually made with vanilla pudding mix, which has plenty of butter and eggs to keep it moist.

You can’t go wrong with a fresh bowl of angel food cake, but if you want something more substantial, you can use a boxed mixture like Bisquick to make this recipe.

If you have leftover bananas (or other fruit), bake the cake in layers so that they don’t get soggy. Then drizzle them with caramel sauce and serve!

13. Chocolate Berry Tart

This tart has a lot going on.

It’s packed with chocolate, blueberries, and strawberries.

You won’t be able to help but devour every single bite.

It’s so rich and creamy you won’t even notice that there are no eggs in the crust.

Moreover, it tastes like your favorite ice cream!

The best part is that this dessert comes together in just 10 minutes.

So, if you want something sweet but don’t want a big mess on your hands, this tart is perfect for you.

14. Paleo Vanilla Ice Cream

If you’re worried that there isn’t enough vanilla in this paleo recipe, don’t be!

You’ll add a bit of ground cinnamon and cardamom for some extra spice.

And if you have access to an immersion blender, I highly recommend making your own ice cream base.

Not only will it save you so much time, but it tastes way better than store-bought.

Once your ice cream is made, just pop it into the freezer for about 10 minutes before serving.

You can also use this as a dessert topping or even on top of homemade pie.

15. Almond Oat Crumble Blackberry Pie

Blackberries and oat crumble are a classic combination.

Brushing the pie crust with blackberry puree creates such a lovely contrast to the crisp crust.

The topping is just as flavorful, with plenty of cinnamon and nutmeg.

This pie has cream cheese that elevates the flavors so well.

It’s also dotted with chocolate chips for an added boost of sweetness.

16. Olive Oil Brownies

Many people think of brownies as just a fudgy, chocolatey treat.

But like any dessert, they’re also rich in flavor and nutrients.

To make the most out of these naughty treats, you’ll need brown sugar and chocolate chips.

You can play with that ratio to your liking.

I like mine sweetened with half dark and half white chocolate chips so I don’t need to add the extra calories.

If you want them low-carb, drizzle over some peanut butter before baking.

Of course, this is one recipe that will work well with almost any vegan sticky buns or cookies.

Or even coconut ones if you have some!

17. Chocolate Cupcakes

Chocolate cupcakes are a classic, and they’re delicious just about any time of day.

I like to add a generous amount of chocolate frosting and sprinkles to my batch for an extra special touch.

These work great with any kind of chocolate cupcake recipe, so you can get as fancy or simple as you want.

18. Frozen Key Lime Pie

Key lime pie is a beautiful, citrusy dessert loaded with fresh lime zest and juice.

Usually made with graham crackers, lime juice, and lime zest, this pie is particularly delicious.

It’s sweet and tangy without being overly sugary.

If you’re looking for a way to jazz up your favorite frozen treat, try this easy Key lime pie recipe!

Magic cookie bars are the ultimate treat!

They’re fudgy, chewy, and wonderfully sweet.

Plus, they’re made with only five ingredients.

They have the most incredible texture, and they taste absolutely phenomenal.

If you’re a fan of cookies and bars, these are one of the best options out there.

The almond flour and coconut flour in this recipe make these incredibly moist; plus, it gives them a lovely golden color that you won’t get from other recipes.

20. Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are the perfect sweet treat to bring to a potluck or get-together.

They’re so versatile, and they’re great for all sorts of things!

This recipe makes two batches of these adorable chocolate chip cookies.

One is crumbly and soft with just a hint of crunch.

The other cookie is sticky and chewy with a little more texture.

You can use either cookie dough or store-bought chocolate chip cookies.

Either way, you won’t be disappointed.

21. Gluten-Free Lemon Bars

It’s hard to believe, but these lemon bars are gluten-free.

They are also paleo, keto, and Whole30 compliant.

They’re made with almond flour, coconut flour, eggs, zest and juice of two lemons (the option is up to you), and vanilla extract.

These are moist and full of citrusy goodness.

They also have a light buttermilk pastry crust that is so good it almost tastes like cake.

You can make them in under 20 minutes with no oven required!

22. Vegan Cheesecake Brownies

These brownies are a great way to use up any leftover brown sugar and chocolate.

You’ll make the base with vegan butter, which you can buy in some grocery stores, or try making your own with coconut oil.

Just be sure you work it into a paste before adding the rest of the ingredients.

The pudding mix is important here, as it gives the brownies that lovely texture.

I suggest a bit of cornstarch over flour to ensure they don’t stick together too much and bake evenly.

23. Easy Oreo Cheesecake

If you’re looking to make a dessert that has all the flavor of Oreos, then this recipe is for you.

It combines rich and creamy cheesecake with sweetened crushed Oreos and thick cream cheese.

How easy is that?

I love the combination of Oreo crumbles and cream cheese in this dessert.

It’s like rich cookie dough in cake form!

24. Vegan Vanilla Cupcakes

These are the cupcakes to grab when you need something quick and easy.

Vanilla cupcakes with a decadent frosting?

Yes, please!

This recipe takes your favorite chocolate cake and adds in some nutritional yeast.

The result is sweet, silky-smooth cupcakes that will satisfy even the fussiest of eaters.

They’re moist and tasty; what more can you ask for?

25. Cookies And Cream Parfait

Looking for something to spice up your breakfast routine?

These cookies and cream parfaits are the perfect way to start the day.

Each bite is a sweet, creamy delight.

The cookie crumbs combine with whipped cream, whipped topping, and Cool Whip for an indulgent treat.
