If you, your roommate or one of your friends are lactose intolerant, it means that many sweets and treats are off-limit.

Butter, milk or cream are common ingredients for most cakes, biscuits, ice-creams, but they are not irreplaceable. Margarine and neutral oils can be good substitutes for butter, while non-dairy milks and creams (such as coconut and almond) are now widely available.

The following recipes do not contain any milk or dairy, but if you use chocolate, make sure it is dairy-free or vegan.

1. Double chocolate nice-cream

2. Blueberry quinoa muffins

3. Strawberry and basil cheesecake

4. Vegan brownies

5. Breakfast cookies

6. Chocolate crinkles

7. Mango and lime chia pudding

8. Chocolate peanut butter power balls



These days avoiding dairy is easier and more popular than ever before.  But whether you're lactose intolerant or simply not mad about milk, it is super frustrating that one of the world’s most prominent coffee chains doesn’t do an almond-based alternative.

With the rise of nut milks – which are widely viewed as healthier and better tasting than soy – it seems like every decent coffee shop is offering almond milk lattes, cappuccinos and macchiatos but, for whatever reason, until now Starbucks has stuck by soy.

To the cheers of the lactose intolerant everywhere, today Starbucks announced that this September almond milk will make its long-awaited debut on the coffee giant’s US menu.

The move comes after one of the most common suggestions on Starbucks’ customer request platform My Starbucks Idea was that almond milk should be made available.

Sadly Starbucks Ireland have yet to make a similar statement but since it’s coming to America, we’re hopeful the almond truck will be here soon.  



Rejoice all poor lactose intolerant souls! Ben & Jerry’s have heard you cries for help and are coming to rescue you. Oh and the same applies to any vegans out there who may be guilty of craving some dairy goodness from time to time.


Following a petition that was signed by over 27,000 people co-founder Jerry Greenfield has said that the company are working on a dairy-free frozen treat. He said that "In the US there are (dairy-free) alternatives from smaller companies but Ben & Jerry’s will be first mainstream company that will do that and will also do it in a really delicious way."

The company got people cheering when they responded to a tweet back in April.


We’re not the only ones that think it’s a pretty big deal, with the man himself saying he thinks it’s a “big thing” for Ben & Jerry’s to be working on the product.


And for anyone who isn’t a fan of bananas, have no fear. Some of the easiest alternatives to frozen dairy goodness are known as banana ‘nice-creams’ by food bloggers worldwide. Unfortunately bananas just aren’t for everyone, but Ben & Jerry’s have you covered. The team are working on coconut and almond milk based alternatives.


The dairy-free ice cream should be available to U.S customers next spring, and just a little later for everyone else.

The wait is sure to be worth it!
