The coconut oil helps keep everything nice and creamy, while also providing a bit of richness. The other important ingredient here is agar-agar powder. This makes the cheesecakes extra firm and holds them together nicely.
We found that using almond milk instead of regular dairy gave us some great results. We recommend starting with 1 cup of almond milk, then slowly increasing it as needed.
You may need to add another half cup if you’re using a smaller amount of almonds.
If you’re having trouble removing it from the pan to serve, remove the sides of the springform pan and run the edge of a knife along the inside of the pan. Unwrap and place on a serving plate. Top with Whipped Coconut Milk.

Ah, the humble apple pie. Who doesn’t want to eat a delicious slice of these when they’re offered at the dinner table? Unfortunately, those with dairy-tolerance issues have often lost out on this tasty dessert.
Thankfully, this dairy and gluten-free recipe means that everyone can enjoy some good old-fashioned dessert pie!
This scrumptious pie uses apples, oats, spices, and a few other ingredients to bring an incredible taste to the classic American dessert. It starts with a crust made of rolled oats and nut butter.
To ensure that the filling stays in place during baking, we used gelatin sheets. These help keep the filling from oozing all over your oven and stovetop.
Then comes the filling part: Apples and cinnamon go hand in hand, making this simple dessert perfect for fall or winter. Finally, there’s the topping: A crumble made of oats, nuts, and dried fruit. Drizzle some honey over the top for a sweet finish.
Sugar cookies are another classic dessert that often gets missed out on thanks to dairy intolerance. This recipe manages to make an amazing recipe that can be enjoyed by everyone!
This recipe uses real vanilla extract, which not only adds a lovely aroma to the dough but also makes the final product much more flavorful.
If you’d like to try something different, you could always experiment by substituting almond extract or even rosewater for the vanilla. Either way, you should end up with a deliciously soft, luscious cookie.
Frostings and icings are probably one of the things that many people think about when it comes time to decorate their cakes. Sadly, frosting recipes often use dairy-based ingredients such as cream cheese and heavy whipping cream.
But don’t worry, because this recipe brings a new twist to the traditional frosting by replacing the dairy with coconut oil. Not only will you get a creamy, smooth icing, but you’ll also find that it’s incredibly light!
The best part (and what makes this frosting extra special) is that it can easily be turned into cupcake toppings!
The first step involves melting down coconut oil until it becomes liquid. Once it’s done, add in powdered sugar along with the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
Then, simply spread onto cupcakes, sprinkle with sprinkles, or drizzle with some dairy-free (obviously) chocolate sauce.
Chocolate cake is delicious no matter whether it contains eggs or not. Unfortunately, since egg allergies are becoming increasingly common these days, many people have been left without access to this popular treat.
Luckily, this recipe offers a solution to this problem by using ground flaxseeds instead of eggs.
To start, combine both flaxseed meal and water in a bowl and allow them to sit in the fridge overnight. When they’re ready, add in your dry ingredients and stir everything together.
Next, pour in your wet mixture and stir until combined. Then, pour the batter into a greased pan and let it cook at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 25 minutes.
