30 Decadent Dairy Free Desserts You Can Indulge In Guilt-Free

Deserts are my favorite meal of the day. And I consider myself lucky, because I can eat lots of sweet deserts, and not get fat in the process. My friends often ask me how can I eat so much chocolate and sweets and don’t fat. Well, there are two secrets to the answer. The first one is I have extremely fat metabolism, and I burn everything I eat. The second secret is when I cook at home, I cook deserts that are guilt-free. Or in other words, they are healthy and you won’t be afraid that the desert you eat will turn into extra pounds on your body. That being said, let’s take a look at some deserts that you can eat guilt-free.

1. Raw banoffee pie

This is a pie you might find in a vegan restaurant, but it is also something you can cook at home in no time. The recipe asks for ripe bananas, but you don’t have to wait for them to get ripe. I must say however, ripe bananas made the desert that much better.
