The carnivore diet is an elimination diet that focuses on consuming animal products like meat and dairy, and eliminating all plant foods that cause inflammation and irritation in the body.
Most people think that a carnivore diet is bland and only includes savory food — but you can still have dessert if it’s made from carnivore-friendly ingredients.
There are lots of treats you can make with milk, cream, cream cheese, honey, eggs, and maple syrup, plus small amounts of low-inflammatory spices like vanilla and cinnamon.
Here are five of ourb favorite carnivore diet desserts.
