5 Ingredient dark chocolate dairy-free “Gelato” recipe

Guys! I’m so excited about this dairy-free “Gelato” recipe!! I’m lactose intolerant (sorry if that is TMI 🙄 ), but I love Gelato, ice cream, soft-serve, you name it. It’s difficult sometimes to pony-up for the expensive dairy-free offerings in the store that are clean labeled as well, so I got to thinking, “Why not make it myself?”.

What really inspired me to create this recipe was my son, Oskar. Oskar has a bit of a sweet tooth. As a matter of fact, he just has a few teeth, and this dairy-free Gelato recipe is a great way to pack some antioxidants into his little body, cure his sweet tooth (literally), all while soothing his aching “teething” gums.

I just love preparing quick and easy blender recipes for the baby before we start our busy day. This dark chocolate dairy-free Gelato recipe happens to be great for breakfast and for a decadent dessert, post dinner. We’ve even added dairy-free coconut whipped cream and fresh berries to the top and it’s a real treat!
