If you are anything like me, you must eat something sweet every day. I give myself a special treat for making it through another work day. In my adult years, I have unfortunately become allergic to dairy. My options are always limited to what I can purchase when it comes to desserts. One day while I was grocery shopping, I came across Ben & Jerry's Non-Dairy Ice Cream. I could not believe my eyes, and I knew it was too good to be true. I checked the back for the ingredients and there was no dairy listed. I bought it and took it home and instantly I was hooked. I haven't had ice cream since I was a kid, so finding this was like finding gold. I immediately started searching to see if there were other dairy free desserts and guess what? There are tons! You just have to know what to look for. I have created a small list of non-dairy desserts that will have your sweet tooth thanking me.
