7 Dairy-Free Smoothies that Taste Like Ice Cream

Do you ever have dessert for lunch? I’m guilty of it. Not in a eat-a-chocolate-chip-cookie kind of way, I’m talking smoothies that taste just like dessert — a creamy, decadent, rich, healthy treat right in your glass. It’s the kind of smoothie that makes it hard to believe that every sip is actually super nutrient-dense, fiber-rich, and filled with fruits, vegetables, and superfoods. Here are a few of my favorite smoothies that taste just like the most common ice cream flavors, seriously.

Cacao Mint Bliss Balls

If you love the classic chocolate and mint combination, then you’ll love this healthy dessert (or snack)! These balls contain fibre, good fats, protein, calcium, magnesium, manganese and vitamin B2. Enjoy the recipe.

Raw Carrot Cake

I love raw desserts. They contain so much goodness, nutrition and flavor, and to top it off, they are easy to make. Try this delicious treat to include at a party, for friends and/or family. Enjoy!

Smart Sweet: Raspberry & Lime Mousse

When you’re craving a rich creamy vegan, gluten and dairy-free mousse., this is your answer. This dessert is nice and rich, which is why we love it, but I recommend this as a smaller serving. Just a small serving is all you need and it won’t disrupt a healthy eating plan.

It Tastes Just Like Berry Pie

There are 3 different berries in this smoothie, so it is loaded with concentrated antioxidants! I also added in the superfood lucuma which adds a lovely creamy taste to the smoothie, reminding me of the beautiful flavors of a homemade berry pie.

Vegan Strawberry Parfait with Chocolate Crunch

Food holidays are the perfect excuse to get in the kitchen and make something new to celebrate whatever food is being recognized. National Donut Day? Fine, we’ll make raw, vegan donuts! Today is National Strawberry Parfait Day? Perfect, strawberry parfait it is!

Raw Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free Chocolate Cheesecake

If you or anyone you know has food allergies, then this is the dessert to make! Not only is it rich and creamy and mouthwateringly good, but it’s dairy-free, gluten-free and egg-free. Get the recipe.

Raw Chocolate Donut Holes with Strawberry Cream

When it’s National Donut Day, there’s only one thing I can think of doing…make raw donuts, of course! I was deciding between two flavors: chocolate with vanilla cream or a vanilla with strawberry cream. I decided to ask my boss what she thought and she had the brilliant idea for me to do chocolate with strawberry cream. Enjoy this recipe.

Raw Lemon Cheesecake

Make this tart and delicious raw treat and you’ll be enjoying an amazing dessert without the buckets of processed dairy and sugar! A typical cheesecake is a sure fire way to upset my stomach and fire up my eczema so here is a healthy version that is creamy and delicious, dairy-free, gluten-free, and processed sugar-free. This contains plenty of vitamin C, protein, zinc, magnesium, good fats and fibre. So go ahead and enjoy a slice without the guilt.

Smart Sweet: Superfood Carob Squares

Here is a healthy, homemade, super charged chocolate dessert (or snack!). It’s different from other cacao chocolate dessert treats you’ve tried and jam packed with nutrients and antioxidants. Not to mention it’s yummy, addictive and really easy! Enjoy!

I'm spending the next month in Long Island, New York to get a healthy routine going again, and stay within one timezone! So be prepared for a bunch of posts over the next month as I share my progress, my favorite meals, and even some pictures of me doing some downward dog! Enjoy this recipe of one of my favorite salads from the past week -- it's made from plants and it's delicious.
