Best Dairy-Free Recipes
If you're on a dairy-free diet, it can be hard to find foods that you love that don't contain ingredients that you can't have. I've pulled together some of our favorite and best dairy-free recipes from our kitchen that we love. It's true--eating dairy-free can be delicious!
If you've been reading here for awhile, you may have noticed the plethora of dairy-free recipes on my site.
I don't have a "thing" against dairy, per se, but my son has a life threatening dairy allergy that showed up when he was an infant.
For more on the messola that food allergies caused in our family, you can read Eczema and Food Allergies--from Despair to Healing.
As a result, we've been using dairy-free alternatives for a loooong time now.
It was a bit tough at first, but over the years we've found more and more ways to make adapt recipes to be dairy-free, and have found loads of new recipes that didn't need adjusting at all. I decided to share with you some of our best dairy-free recipes to help others who are in the same dairy-free boat as well.
Nut Butter Fruit Dip
This dip is a super-healthy alternative to those caramel dips that are loaded with high fructose corn syrup, preservatives and such. We love it for dipping fruit (of course), but it's also a great drizzle for cakes, cookies, pancakes, or fabulous eaten just off the spoon :).
Dairy-Free Main Dishes
Egg Roll in a Bowl
Baked Chicken Nuggets
Thai Green Chicken Thigh Curry
Chocolate Chip "Cheesecake"-Filled Chocolate Cupcakes
These cupcakes are filled with a rich cheesecake-y filling that's dairy-free. Delectable. My youngest asked for these made into a cake for his birthday.
Chocolate Almond Chip Coconut Milk Ice Cream
I like my ice cream with lots of chunky stuffola in it. This dairy-free ice cream fits the bill.
Baked Oatmeal Cake
This cake not only tastes great, but it's super simple to make. Just mix the ingredients together the night before, soak overnight and bake in the morning. You'll never believe that it's made with no flour!
Chocolate Chia Pudding
Yes, you can have Chocolate Pudding for Breakfast, when it's THIS chocolate pudding, that is. We seriously have this for breakfast often in our home. We have the carob version as well and have fun adding loads of topping.
It gave me a great reason to pull out some of my "oldy but goody" dairy-free recipes and share them with you all again!
Which dairy-free recipe is your favorite?
have you tried raw milk? we have quite a few customers that are 'lactose intolerant' but actually it's more like 'pasteurization intolerant'. they are fine on the raw milk. you can check out more at realmilk.com
thanks for the gluten-free recipes
My son has a life threatening allergy which is different than lactose intolerance. He would die. I wish it weren't true, but it is. Have you heard of anyone who thought they had a life threatening allergy but it was just pasteurization. Thanks!
Ooh all these delectable and healthy recipes are making me hungry!I would really love to try that Oatmeal Cake. Looks and sounds amazing!Pinned 🙂
