Cinnabon – Doesn’t Rise Up for Dairy-Free Customers


Eat Dairy Free - Your Essential Cookbook for Everyday Meals, Snacks, and SweetsUpdated 2021! Cinnabon has become a staple in malls across America, but according to the company, they have very little to offer dairy-free customers. Their dough contains whey and their frosting is made with cream cheese and whey. They also fail to offer any type of dairy-free milk alternative for their coffee drinks. So dairy-free and vegan customers are limited to black coffee and other basic beverages when they visit this chain. The frozen lemonades might be an option at Cinnabon, but that’s as fancy as it gets!

I only include Cinnabon in our Fast Food listings because we get so many reader inquiries about this chain.

But you can get your cinnamon roll fix in other ways. Look to see if there is a Cinnaholic in your local area. They’re a completely dairy-free and vegan cinnamon roll chain. Or you can bake you won at home! It’s much easier than you might think, and the results are so deliciously fresh. Here are some recipes to get you started.
