Going Dairy Free for a bit...

Leave a Comment
Hi I'm Jade and I live on Latte's and cheese and this is why I have come to Dairyholics Anonymous.

Ok, I'm not that bad, but I do bloody love halloumi...

I have tried to give up dairy numerous times before and I have also failed numerous times before. Almost every health book I own talks about the negative effect that having a lot of dairy can have on your body, so I thought I would actually give it a proper go for a few weeks.

I usually surrender when it comes to coffee and the sweet stuff, so these are the best alternatives I have found:

Alpro Oat Milk
Who knew you could milk an oat? When you walk down a milk aisle nowadays you are inundated with a gazillion different cartons of all sorts of milk substitutes. I've tried a lot of them and I find oat milk is the nicest in coffee (the Alpro one especially) which is the most important thing for me. Who knows what they will get milk out of next...

Turmeric Latte's
I am obsessed with turmeric latte's made with coconut milk. Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory and has been used as a spice and medicinal herb in India for thousands of years. It's best to make them yourself so you know there is no unnecessary sugar added, but if you are out and about, Pret and Cafe Elan do lovely ones.

Montezuma Absolute Black chocolate
I eat chocolate everyday and I mainly love the dark stuff, but I couldn't believe how many brands of dark chocolate still had dairy in. This one is 100% cocoa and it's delish.

Booja Booja
This is the best discovery of my life, let alone my dairy-free experience. It's made with 4 simple ingredients - water, cashews, agave and cocoa and it is FABULOUS. It's insanely chocolatey and not even bad for you....

Yep, they're vegan. The Dream. 

Liva's Kitchen Raw Millionaire Shortbread Bites
I found that within the first week of cutting  out dairy my taste buds changed a little, I had tried these before and wasn't keen as they didn't taste that sweet, but I gave them another shot and loved them. They are made with oat flour, dates and dark chocolate and go perfectly with a cup of coffee.

So I haven't actually found it that difficult to cut out dairy and I'm feeling great and have so much more energy. I' m not planning to cut it out completely but I'm definitely on the hunt for healthier alternatives.

Go on give it a go to see if you feel better, I dairy you
