Today I’m focusing on my favorite dairy free sweet treats! I’ve been lactose intolerant since I was a year old. Despite that, I still ate some dairy as a kid with the help of Lactaid pills but as I got older it really started to negatively affect my digestion and my skin so I decided to quit dairy cold turkey. I felt better, my skin was clear and I even lost some weight. Over the past year I’ve gone back and forth between eating it and not eating it and I definitely slip up.
Unfortunately, now my body reacts even worse to dairy and I break out in eczema! So basically my intolerance turned into what seems like a full blown allergy (can that even happen???) and I’ve had to get creative when it comes to finding amazing dairy free alternatives. I hope you all enjoy these finds!
Steve’s Dairy Free Ice Cream // Every flavor I’ve had so far has been amazing! So creamy, sweet and delicious. You would never know it’s not real ice cream. It seems to be sold out online but I find mine at my local grocery store. My favorite is a tie between the salted caramel and chocolate chip cookie dough.
Zen Dairy-Free Pudding // Nothing will take you back to childhood like a chocolate pudding cup. These are so good and perfect if you’re looking for something sweet and light for dessert or a snack.
Silk Creamer // I couldn’t live without my coffee in the morning. And my coffee just isn’t coffee without my creamer. This is the best dairy free coffee creamer I’ve tried. Caramel and vanilla are favorites of mine!
A Good Vegan Bakery // If you’re like me and you love sweets, definitely find a local vegan bakery where you can get the goods. If you live in Central Jersey I recommend Papa Ganache in Matawan. Their cupcakes are delicious, they have a wide selection and I’m able to satisfy my sweet tooth without harming my stomach!
Almond Breeze Chocolate Milk // Chocolate milk was by far one of my favorite things to drink growing up and it always brought me such a sense of comfort. I’ve since switched to this one by Almond Breeze and I don’t even miss the regular stuff. I’ve never been much of a milk fan anyway so I like that almond milk doesn’t have that nasty, milk after-taste. Besides drinking this straight from the carton you can also blend it up with some ice, chocolate protein powder and a scoop of peanut butter for a delicious shake.
I would love to hear your dairy free suggestions down below! And stay tuned for an upcoming post where I’ll talk about my savory dairy free must-haves.
I hope you’re having an amazing day wherever you are. Until next time!
