You can be healthy and still enjoy your dessert!

We aren’t saying eat these each and every day but we don’t want you to have to give up sweets and treats just because you are on a journey to a healthier life. You can learn how to make healthier desserts without gluten, dairy and refined sugar, that still taste DELICIOUS.

To prove it, we’ve pulled together some of our favorite dairy-free desserts are still packed with flavor.

1. Salted Caramel Peanut Fudge

This is one of my favourite freezer desserts, and I like to keep it ready to grab at a moment’s notice. A decadent delight, it perfects the irresistible flavor combo of caramel and sea salt. The unique peanutty edge makes it fulfilling for adults with a cuppa, but also brings plenty of happiness to little kids.

2. Hazelnut Truffles

These truffles are easy to make and oh so delicious! You may want to double the ingredients and make a double batch because they sure didn't last long in the Food Matters Headquarters!

3. Flourless Chocolate Brownie

Rich, fudgy, flourless brownies that are perfectly chewy and dense!

4. Lemon Curd Tart

Many of you might cringe at us remaking such a classic dessert like the Lemon Curd Tart but we promise this is just as good as the classic version you know and love… just healthier!

5. Caramelized Figs with Nut Crunch and Coconut Nice Cream

We always have frozen bananas in the freezer for when the sweet tooth strikes! They make such a nice and smooth dairy-free ice cream. Add a few ingredients and you have the quickest and tastiest dessert!

6. Chocolate Zucchini Brownies

This recipe has vegetables hidden within and you wouldn't even know.  Trust us. We tested this one on the Food Matters Team and not one of them picked it.

7. Cashew Cheesecake

A creamy classic dairy-free cheesecake fit for anytime of the year.

8. Peanut Butter Banana Nice Cream

To delight peanut ice cream lovers, here is a non-dairy version.  It’s not your usual ice cream in that it only uses 5 very simple but extremely flavorsome ingredients, and is good for our health. No idea cream make required!

9. 5-Minute Chocolate Mousse

This chocolate mousse is a combination of heart-healthy avocado, cacao and dates, blended with mesquite powder, vanilla, rice malt syrup and your milk of choice.  It's easy, quick and delicious!
