Lactose Free Recipes – Desserts!

Are you looking for some lactose free recipes? Desserts being left out of the diet for those who are lactose intolerant is just wrong. I think just about everyone has a sweet tooth and just because your body and milk don't get along doesn't mean you have to go without.

It's tough enough searching for recipes or adjusting your current recipes to be made lactose free; creating lactose free recipes, desserts for example can be a little tougher. Many desserts call for milk or a milk product such as ice cream or whipping topping. With a little thought and ingenuity you can create some very tasty treats that are lactose free.

The recipes can be simple or they can be more complex and they can be fresh or they can be frozen. You can make shakes, cakes, cookies and even whipped topping. If you have the hang of the foods that you can eat, then creating desserts that will quickly become your favorites will be easy.

When searching through the numerous lactose free recipes, desserts specifically, you will find a variety of flavors just like you do when you are searching for a new recipe for breakfast or dinner. One super simple recipe is to make a milkshake from chocolate flavored almond milk and blend with ice; if you want to add a little vanilla you can.

Drop a tablespoon at a time on a cookie sheet and bake for 8 to 12 minutes in a preheated 325 degree oven. You can leave them in the "drop" form or flatten with a fork before baking. To keep them chewy, store in a sealed container; this recipe is also vegan and gluten free.

This next recipe is really easy too and great for the holidays or any time of year. It is nut free and also soy free and full of flavor. Heat in a medium saucepan the following until bubbly:

29 ounce pumpkin (canned)

One cup rice milk

¼ cup agave syrup or maple syrup

1 cup honey

Cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves

In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks until thick and creamy then stir in approximately a half cup of pumpkin mixture to slowly warm the egg mixture without cooking the whites. Then slowly mix in the rest of the egg mixture into the pumpkin mixture. Continue cooking until this mixture has thickened. Serve warm or cold in custard dishes.
