Here you’ll find some of the best dairy free dinner recipes! We’ve got you covered whether you’re anaphylactic to dairy, lactose intolerant, or just avoiding dairy. We have a delicious dinner recipe for you without the milk!
Many recipes can easily be altered with your favorite dairy free products. The “milk? we use for dairy free recipes is Oatly full-fat milk or Planet Oat milk. If a recipe we loved previously called for butter, we use Country Crock Plant Butter or Earth Balance Butter. Country Crock also makes a plant cream, but haven’t tried that yet.
For dairy free cheese, we like Follow Your Heart, Violife, Wayfare and Chao. We, unfortunately, cannot have Miyoko’s or Kite Hill due to our other food allergies, but we loved those too when we could have them. Our goto cream cheese is Violife or Wayfare, but Kite Hill is our top pick if you can have almonds.
A staple swap that we make homemade is our condensed cream of mushroom soup. It’s better than any canned cream of soup you’ll buy too!
