Dairy Free Products- My Opinion

lactoLacto-Free Milk (Normal, Sachets and Chocolate!)

  • This is my all time favourite go-to milk. It’s the one I always have in my fridge and it tastes exactly the same as normal milk. Unlike quite a few dairy free milks, the lacto-free milk doesn’t congeal or separate.
  • It also comes in long life little sachets, so you can carry it with you wherever you go.
  • The chocolate milk is a perfect treat and I seem to consume far more when I have deadlines. What can’t chocolate fix?

Soya Milk 

  • Soya milk is sweeter than lacto-free milk and has a thicker consistency than soya milkalmond milk. Whenever I am out and about, and I fancy a drink from a coffee shop, I always order soya or almond milk.
  • Soya is fattier than almond milk, but more nutritious. If ever I have something chocolate based, such as a Frappe, I choose soya, as it’s the creamier alternative.
  • I don’t, however, enjoy having it on my cereal, and sometimes it has the tendency to separate in drinks- so I make sure to keep a spoon by my side if ever I use soya.

Almond Milk

  • This is the bees knees in a Frappaccino- almond is even sweeter than soya milk. I prefer having almond milk in warm drinks or on ice. Again, it can have the tendency to separate, but tastes delicious. Starbucks is the best.

Lacto-Free Cream Cheese 

  • Is the boss. It’s great for cheesecakes and with crackers. I have (over the last yecheese---soft-cheesear) got into chutneys, and lordy the cream cheese and chutneys go together brilliantly. This is a dairy free diet must-have.

 

 

Alpro Soya Cream 

  • It can be simply poured, put on deserts and in main meals. Sometimes it quite easy to rule certain meals out, whether they are cream, milk or cheese based. But these alternatives are so good.

Oatly Milk

  • This is my preferred milk (other than lacto-free milk) in cereal. Though, once again(!), it can separate- but for some reason it doesn’t in cereal!
  • This is my entire family’s favourite milk to use with our coffee machine- it froths so well and tastes just as good as any alternative milk.

Koko Yoghurt 

  • This with granola, as a snack or even to have with fresh fruit is so scrummy. It’s coconut based, really smooth and the berry yoghurts are my favourite.

Violife cream

violife

  • This is a vegan alternative to cream cheese. I love the taste, but the consistency is a little bit jelly-like. That’s my only complaint.

Feta 

  • Feta is so fresh and actually quite a strong flavour, so you don’t need much on top of pasta, or as part of a meal.
  • It also lasts a long time.
  • Plus, I prefer feta to goats cheese. I do eat goats cheese, and quite often, but feta is creamier! My all time favourite salad (of which I have uploaded the recipe on my blog) consists of feta, watermelon, cucumber and fresh mint. It’s the best combination.

Lacto-free custard

custard

  • This is super yummy and super creamy, You can heat it in the microw
    ave or just have it cold. Some things I really missed when I first started a dairy free diet, things such as cream and custard on deserts were one of the big ones. This is so yummy and is by the same brand that creates the lacto free milk!

 

I think that when you have to rule out such a seemingly large part of your diet, it can sometimes seem rather limiting. But I think, especially in today’s food domain, having a  dairy free diet is actually pretty easy. If anything, you learn more about flavours, about nutrition and alternative food groups. Whether you are trying new foods, getting used to a dairy free diet, or simply want a healthier lifestyle, try some of these products. They are so yummy- trust me.
