Dairy refers to milk and any part of milk that comes from cows and other mammals. Thus, to be dairy-free, a product must have no milk and all sources of dairy, including milk, cheese, yoghurt and ice cream. Since lactose comes from milk, a product that is dairy-free will not have lactose in it. This means that a product that is dairy-free is also lactose-free.
People may follow a dairy-free diet for a myriad of reasons. It could be an allergy or intolerance e.g. lactose intolerance, or perhaps due to dietary reasons and practices such as veganism.
Whatever your reason could be, we are here to make your experience an exciting one with our tasty and healthy dairy-free dessert recipes! These desserts are so tasty that no one at the dinner table will even realize it’s missing a dairy product! The treat recipes are made purely with nut or seed butter and oats. No eggs or butter is even needed!
• Milk substitutes: Cashew milk, coconut milk, almond milk, soy milk, oat milk and rice milk are among the many dairy-free alternatives, and taste just as good in whatever you’re making. Soy milk and cashew are great for sauce recipes thanks to their thick and creamy texture, whilst oat milk’s designed to be added to hot drinks are perfect for teas and coffee.
• Snacking: Keep your snack cupboard stocked. Hunger often comes with diet change, so keep lots of dairy-free options around in case you find yourself reverting to the familiar. Keep a range of desserts in the fridge/freezer too, as many places don’t offer dairy-free desserts and you’re less likely to be tempted if you have sweet treats waiting at home.
• Plan in advance: Meal plans stop you from slipping up due to lack of preparation. Shopping lists and recipe searches every now and again are really helpful here.
• Choose vegan options: Even if you’re not vegan, buying vegan products or making vegan choices at restaurants will ensure there is no dairy in your food. You’ll find out just how incredible vegan food is too!
• Check and double-check labels: Some dairy ingredients have less obvious names than milk, cheese, butter and cream. Whey, lactose and casein derivatives are ones to watch out for when reading the ingredients.
• Less is more: The fewer ingredients there are in a product, the more likely it is to be dairy-free. Fresh produce is a great example. If you’re in a hurry, simple products can be lifesavers
• Ask for advice: The dairy-free diet is becoming more and more popular, so chat to others who are making or have already made the same change!
