We teamed up with Rude Health to showcase some delightful dairy free recipes, to create the best desserts, including ice cream.

Yes, we may be experiencing a mini heatwave, but this refreshing ice cream is just the ticket to cooling off.

Whilst under lockdown, many of us have been diving hands-first into baking up a storm or kneading away at sourdough starters. If you’re dairy free or simply looking to change up your dessert repertoire, then these recipes are for you.
