autoimmune protocol dessert


In May, after I turn in my manuscript for my book, I’m going to try the Autoimmune Protocol Diet.   You may or may not know that I have PCOS, which is considered an autoimmune disorder,  but  I have also been struggling to get back on track after having my son.  My pregnancy was not fun and it has taken me  2.5 years to finally start to feel more like my old self.  I’ve been working on eating more fermented cod liver oil, high vitamin butter oil,  broth and liver ever week.   I started adding gelatin to my tea – just kicked the coffee habit – and seriously my skin looks amazing!  However, I do need to eat more vegetables. Ugg.

Yes, I do not like vegetables.  However if you went to my Google Hangout Tuesday night where I spoke with 3 amazing Autoimmune Protocol Bloggers, a gem of information was shared about how you can safely enjoy  green smoothies.  The following day I had a delicious Kale smoothie with blueberries and gelatin! Yum!

Anyhow,  I’m shooting to stay 100%  for 60 days.  However, you know me.  I have a sweet tooth that rivals Paula Deen’s sweet tooth pre-diabetes  and I need to make sure that I can get my cookie and cake fix no matter what diet I am on.   Without further ado, here are 20 AIP Desserts to try.

    Great list Kelly! I’ve got to get my butt serious about AIP again. I adhered to it very strictly for about 6 months, but I’ve been quite the slacker and I can tell a distinct effect on my health. This list will definitely come in handy. 🙂 Thanks for featuring the strawberries and cream tart recipe too!

    I hope you have good results! I am thrilled to say that as of TODAY, I have BOTH of the books you said are must haves. I agree with you and will be forever grateful to those willing to spread the goodness of this way of eating. So far I have gone without deserts but am reconsidering after seeing your list of possibilities!

      Thank you so much Pam! It makes it easier for me to “give up” foods when I know I can still have a treat. All the best!

    Holy yum. My AIP pinterest board is about to get flooded with deliciousness!! Thank you for including my macaroons ♥

    Good luck with the change in diet!
    At least you can have fruits. 🙂
    I’ve been on the candida cleanse for the last 3 weeks myself, and no fruit or sugar of any kind is allowed. Sigh.
    So, I can’t even eat my coconut date balls right now. Thanks for sharing them!

    Thank you for posting these great dessert recipes! I’m just over a month into AIP (btw, the books you listed have been a big help to me), but I never considered that I might need some desserts for special occasions.

      Heather I can not imagine life without desserts, lol! I hope you find some you love!

    Hi! I’m on day 4 of the AIP elimination phase, and am really struggling with my sweet tooth. I’m definitely going to try some of these! I don’t think that the Paleo Raspberry Pop Tarts are AIP friendly since they have ghee and vanilla, right? If they are allowed, I’m definitely making those!

    • March 12, 2017 at 5:46 pm

      Hun you can remove the ghee and use coconut oil and just skip the vanilla. Enjoy!
