The Easiest Dairy Free Ice Cream Cake
This cookies and cream ice cream cake is the most popular recipe on my blog by far and it’s one of our go-to party desserts.
There’s only one problem — since I’m lactose intolerant I personally can’t enjoy more than a couple bites! But the good news is that all it takes is one simple substitution to make a dairy free ice cream cake that I can eat as much of as my heart desires!
Instead of using regular ice cream sandwiches, I use a dairy free version and I’m good to go! My favorites are made with coconut milk “ice cream,” but you can use whichever variety you prefer.

Guilt-Free Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
I would go so far as to call these cookies healthy! They’re a good source of protein, are flour-less, and have no added sugar (aside from the chocolate chips). The amount of lactose in a few chocolate chips is not usually significant enough to bother me, but these dairy-free chocolate chips are actually very tasty if you want to be extra careful.

In our recipes, I generally use the term dairy free to mean “lactose free” (as lactose is my main concern). Some of these recipes may contain butter.
This article from GoDairyFree.org offers helpful tips on how to substitute butter in a variety of cooking styles and recipes. While we haven’t tried all of these techniques personally, they may work in our recipes above if butter is a no-go for you.
