We all know the great health benefits that come from sticking to the Paleo Diet and eating healthy, natural foods.

However, after a while of strictly healthy eating, we all start to crave desserts including sugar, sweets, chocolate, cream, and more foods that are very poor health choices.

Luckily, you can have your cake and eat it too while still on the Paleo Diet thanks to these amazing paleo friendly dessert recipes I’ve compiled. These taste just as good as the bad stuff you cut out of your diet, but without the artificial sweeteners, processed sugar, and bad stuff you’d find in normal desserts.

Plus, these recipes come from some of the best chefs and biggest Paleo Diet blogs out there so these are tried and tested to satisfy those sugary cravings.

(Recipes and paleo experts are in no particular order)

That being said, here’s some delicious Paleo Diet dessert recipes anyone can use!

Peach Almond Crisp

Paleo Dessert Recipes - Peach Almond Crisp

View the Full Recipe Here

(From Melissa)

To me, a great paleo dessert is satisfying, but not too sweet — so
that eating it doesn’t trigger wanting to eat MORE treats. I like this
Peach-Almond Crisp because it uses lots of fresh fruit, with no added
sugars, and the topping is made from nuts and healthy fats. I’ve
served this so many times at potlucks and no one ever notices that
it’s “healthy.”

After a lifetime of yo-yo dieting and food as the enemy, Melissa found the paleo diet in 2009 and has been happily following it ever since. That year, she also underwent a thyroidectomy. In the aftermath, she became particularly interested in how diet affects hormones, body composition, mood, and motivation. These days, Melissa’s workouts are just as likely to include yoga and meditation as lifting heavy things and sprinting to stay ahead of the stopwatch.

About the Creator, Laura Scaviola


Plates of pasta, mozzarella cheese, and a crusty piece of bread were everyday choices in Laura’s diet. Well, before paleo, that is. At age 25 her health suddenly came to a screeching halt. After being diagnosed with a severe gastrointestinal disease she was told treatment would consist of lifelong medication and possible surgery. Laura found this reality unacceptable and turned to the paleo diet suggested by her doctor. After successful medical treatment and a shift in lifestyle/diet she returned to her healthy self. Although she spends each day managing her disease her body continues to show resilience. Now she inspires others by reinventing Italian paleo foods while maintaining Italian-American traditions.

The best chocolate milkshakes are served thick and creamy in a tall glass with a thick straw.

It probably comes as no surprise that I love dessert. However, we rarely keep sweets in the house because I have little to no self control around chocolate. So when I do crave something sweet, I usually reach for a handful of dark chocolate chips to curb my craving because the thought of baking seems much to strenuous and time consuming.

Enter the FIVE minute, FIVE ingredient chocolate milkshake. This recipe is super simple and can be made in a snap. Plus you probably already have all five ingredients on hand! Blend together all of the ingredients and you are left with a luscious, thick and creamy chocolate milkshake just like the diner serves.
