AIP (Auto Immune Protocol) is much like paleo, which aims to support gut health by reducing inflammation-causing foods.
Only it’s much stricter.
So, everything from dairy and eggs to grains and processed sugars is a no-go.
But don’t fret yet! I’ve found 30 sensational AIP desserts to satisfy your sweet tooth without upsetting your gut.
From cookies and brownies to ice cream, this roundup has all your cravings covered.
30 Incredible AIP Dessert Recipes Everyone Will Love
Let’s kick things off with a strawberry mousse so light and creamy, you won’t believe it’s dairy-free!
Instead of the usual mousse ingredients (cream, eggs, and chocolate), you’ll use bananas, avocado, and maple syrup.
This little switcheroo doesn’t only make this mousse nutritious and AIP-approved but so delectable, too.
As a bonus, since there are no eggs or gelatin to set it, you can enjoy this dessert right away.
Sadly, chocolate is prohibited in the AIP diet. But there is a sneaky little workaround: carob.
Thanks to this AIP-friendly alternative, you can enjoy a decadent slice of chocolate cake – with frosting and all!
While the ingredients in this cake may sound foreign to non-AIP dieters (I’m looking at you, tiger nut flour), the only thing you need to know is that they’re easy to work with.
