Easy ways to swap out Dairy
If you're starting a Vegan diet, have lactose intolerance to just looking for something new, try these swaps below!
Milk, included skimmed, semi-skimmed and whole milk
I suggest you choose those fortified with Vitamin D, Calcium and B12, you can find this information on the packaging. Some brands have an option for children and these are higher fat and also have iodine added, suitable for growing children 3+ years old.
Vegan coffee creamer and non-dairy milk powder are also available
Non dairy whipped cream and double cream are available
Milkshakes and flavoured milks
Chocolate plant-based milks (or other flavours)
Cold-brew coffees based on plant milks are available in the fridge section of larger supermarkets.
Try making your own shake with a vegan protein powder
Vegan yoghurts are available made from soya, coconut, oat and more. Look out for fermented versions which will have live cultures similar to dairy yoghurts
Vegan mousse, and pudding pots, look in the fridge section of the supermarket
Puddings and desserts
Vegan ice-creams and sorbets available
homemade “nice-cream” can be made by blending frozen bananas in a food processor
Vegan cheesecakes and desserts available too - I can provide recipes for this
Coconut cheese is widely available.
Look out for almond/cashew cheeses which have a richer flavour due to being fermented like dairy cheese
Whey protein powder
Pea protein, soya protein or any blend of powder that you like
