Top Dairy Products and How to Sub Them

1. Milk

Most of us drank cow’s milk as kids. Between the ad campaigns and “the need for calcium,” practically every doctor recommended it for healthy kids. What we know now, however, is that dairy is not the best way to get usable calcium. And most people are lactose intolerant. Guess what?! Many non-dairy milks provide the same, or MORE calcium than cow’s milk (without the added hormones and cow puss- GROSS!). Our favorite brands (without all the carrageenan) include:

    – Our fave boxed milk version. No cardboard taste here. Super smooth and slightly sweet. It subs super well for milk, in recipes and in coffee. – Our favorite milk in the fridge section. SOOOO creamy and rich tasting. The toasted coconut flavor is amazing! -Not the best as a milk sub, but great for recipes calling for cream. Use in your coffee as a rich creamer. – Check our blog article on why we LOVE this option! -Another one by Califia. This one comes in a box for the java lovers. -This brand is easy to find on store shelves, so we wanted to add it. Taste-wise it’s a 3 out of 5. But we like the price and ease of finding it.

2. Cheeses

It’s tough to get the exact same melty goodness out of plant-based dairy substitutes, but these come the closest!

    mozzarella-Pretty darned close to the real thing in terms of flavor. The gooey cheese factor isn’t there, but we liked it on pizza and a healthy low-carb grilled cheese. semi soft chive-Totally spreadable and yummy for crackers or cut veggies. feta- (They have others, but we only tried this one). While it won’t pass for real feta (there’s no salty, sour bite to it), it has a nice texture and flavor. cream cheese-We figured we’d include this one because of its popularity. There’s a slightly unpleasant taste hard to describe, but the consistency is spot on. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below. We are kinda torn on this one. -Perhaps the very best ingredients list to date! So clean (no gums or fillers)! A little pricey, but very worth it. Lots of great flavors from which to choose too! – Perfect for shaking or adding a little Parmesan-type flavor to meals.

Recipes to try:

    – Made with vegetables and gelatin! So tasty, easy and grate-able/ melty! -We used sweet potato and coconut milk for this yummy cheese snack
  • Vegan Alfredo- (Inside the 131 Method Program)
  • Cheese Sauce- For spaghetti squash with cheese sauce recipe (Inside the 131 Method Program)

3. Ice Cream

Honestly, most “healthy,” low-carb ice creams sans dairytaste mediocre at best. If they taste great, there’s usually a drawback like too much sugar, or, the dreaded thickeners. The label we like the best is below (but we’d rather steer you to making your own using coconut milk, avocado, or, frozen fruit). Check the 131 Method program (if you’re a member of the online community) for our ice cream recipes.

Dumplings and Buns

Jack and I love to make these easy vegan appetizers for a date night-in. I prepare a fresh filling while he makes the buns or seals the dumplings. Then, we eat!

Steamed Dumplings
Kimchi and shiitake mushrooms give these dumplings their irresistible funky, spicy flavor.

Carrot Ginger Gyoza Dumplings, page 69 of Love & Lemons Every Day
Roasted carrots add a hint of sweetness to these bright veggie gyoza. I often make a special dipping sauce to serve with dumplings, but this recipe doesn’t need one. The filling is so flavorful that a little tamari is all it takes to put these dumplings over the top!

Steamed Bao Buns
I love how the nutty tempeh filling contrasts with the tender bao buns in this recipe. Make sure to eat them as soon as they come off the heat, when they’re warm, soft, and pillowy.

Easy recipes for dairy-free baking

The ingredients we reach for in the kitchen are changing. Plant-based eating is on the rise, with an ever-increasing emphasis on making thoughtful choices around the consumption of dairy and meat in particular. Perhaps you're considering your own impact on the environment, or thinking about how these ingredients affect your own health and well-being. Or maybe you're just an adventurous baker looking to tackle new challenges! Whatever the reason, dairy-free baking is a topic on which we're happy to inspire and advise.

Baking is one of the trickier areas to experiment with swapping out ingredients, as items like milk and butter play important roles in the structure, texture, and flavor of the final result.

But thanks to the rise of high-quality, excellent-tasting nut and grain-based milks, cheeses, and yogurts, there are more options than ever before — including readily available plant fats like coconut oil.

As a result, baking is a place where dietary preferences and creativity can dovetail. No longer is baking without dairy a compromise!

We’ve been busy testing these ingredients to find recipes where they really shine. Whether from dietary concerns or simply as a matter of convenience, having a roster of wonderful, delicious dairy-free recipes is a boon for modern bakers. Let's say you run out of butter, or forgot to buy milk. You can still whip up a fantastic lemon chiffon cake or tender banana bread.

And if you're looking to bake without eggs as well, you can find a wonderful collection of vegan recipes here.

There are two approaches to dairy-free baking. First, find recipes that are naturally dairy-free. Second, make the right swaps to existing favorite recipes. We'll talk about lots of recipes that showcase those swaps today, but you can also brush up on five more tips here, or learn the intricacies of dairy-free pie crust with Kye's sage advice here.

When we began investigating the world of dairy-free baking, we tapped into our history. Over the decades, we’ve helped bakers through times of both scarcity and abundance. So we combed through our recipe archives to find some of the cleverest ideas bakers have come up with to get through times when traditional dairy ingredients weren’t as easily available.

A prime example is the Tomato Soup Spice Cake: first popularized in the 1940s, when dairy was scarce, it uses canned soup to create a cake with moist, tender crumb. Studded with raisins and nuts and perfumed with cinnamon and cloves, it’s an all-around winner: flavorful, comforting, snack-worthy, and reliant simply on common pantry staples. For a dairy-free version of the classic cream cheese frosting, make a quick 1:1 substitution of vegan cream cheese for a luscious finishing touch.

We also looked to culinary traditions in cultures where dairy isn't often used as a matter of course. Some of the best dairy-free baking comes from places where oil is the go-to ingredient instead of butter. Ekmek, a traditional Turkish flatbread, is a perfect example. Olive oil and a touch of honey make these tender, sesame-topped breads fragrant and just slightly sweet. (We like to pair them with poached eggs or hummus for a satisfying lunch.)

So let's talk about a few of our favorite go-to recipes to keep up your sleeve! Some of these are naturally dairy-free with others, we made some simple tweaks (coconut oil instead of butter, for example) to create new, dairy-free versions.

Dairy-free cookies

Almond Cloud Cookies are moist and chewy inside with a thin, crackly exterior. One of our most popular cookie recipes, these nutty sweets also happen to be gluten-free. And there's no need for any substitutions or swaps! Almond paste and egg whites give the cookies fat and structure, so no butter or milk is needed.

Our Crisp Molasses Cookies combine the old-fashioned flavors of molasses, ginger, and cinnamon with a chewy texture —thanks to coconut oil — to make an updated version of the traditional gingersnap.

Dairy-free breads

Many bread recipes are naturally dairy-free, as the simplest loaves require nothing more than water, flour, yeast, and salt. But if you want to get more creative while still avoiding dairy, try these jumbo seedy rolls: ideal for sandwiches but also a good vehicle for a veggie burger or to serve alongside a steaming bowl of tomato soup. The sprinkling of caraway, poppy, flax, and sesame seeds gives them crunch and flavor (not to mention striking good looks)!

Of course, you could stick with any manner of basic baguette or artisan bread, most of which don't call for dairy to begin with. Look to No-Knead Crusty White Bread, Extra-Tangy Sourdough, Classic Baguettes, French-Style Country Bread, or Simple Tortillas (using the vegetable oil option) as inspiration for naturally dairy-free ways to get your bread-baking on.

Dairy-free cakes

Cake might pose the greatest initial challenge for dairy-free baking. Many cake recipes rely on the fat from butter, or the protein and sugar in milk, to create the right crumb with a nice rise and delicate structure. But we've got plenty of options for cake recipes that don't require you to do your own calculus about swapping in nut milks or vegan butters.

Angel Food Cake is naturally dairy-free, relying on whipped egg whites to do the bulk of the work in structure and texture.

This gorgeous Pumpkin Espresso Bundt Cake gets its moist crumb from vegetable oil and real pumpkin rather than butter and milk.

And yes, you can have chocolate cake if you're dairy-free! Our Simple and Rich Chocolate Cake calls for cocoa powder and vegetable oil, rather than chopped chocolate and butter.

Craving spice? Try our Whole Grain Gingerbread or the fantastic Zingerman's Honey Spice Cake (above), which features a uniquely flavorful blend of rye flour, buckwheat honey, black tea, and citrus.

Dairy-free muffins and quick breads

Many muffin and quick bread recipes already use vegetable oil instead of butter for the fat, as oil yields a pleasingly moist texture and crumb. Happily, this is a win for dairy-free bakers!

Vegetables get their chance to shine in this modern version of carrot muffins , where a healthy pile of grated fresh carrots provides color, flavor, and a pleasingly moist texture, yielding one of our very favorite breakfast recipes.

Want more vegetables? The Shipyard Galley's Zucchini Muffins are the paragon of a zucchini muffin, and entirely dairy-free.

Or go the quick bread route: if you use dairy-free chocolate chips, this Easy Pumpkin Bread and this Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread are both perfect choices.

Comforting, moist, and flavorful, our dairy-free Applesauce Oatmeal Bread is just as nice for breakfast as it is for dessert (toasted with a little whipped coconut cream!). Dense, fruity Irish Tea Brack uses no dairy in its traditional form, nor does this pretty Rhubarb-Walnut Quick Bread.

Instead of seeing dairy-free baking as a challenge, think of it as an opportunity to branch out and take a new look at the ingredients in your recipes. Without whey, there’s still a way!

30+ Coconut Milk Recipes That Are Beyond Delicious

Whether you make a sweet dessert or a superfast weeknight meal, these are the best ways to use up a can of coconut milk.

Coconut milk is the key secret ingredient missing from many home cook's pantries &mdash and yet, when you finally pick up a few cans, it can be hard to decide when to bust them out. Canned coconut milk can transform regular pan drippings into a luxurious creamy sauce with the help of a few key spices, especially curry powder. But this dairy-free "milk" can be the basis of much more than just curry: You can use coconut milk in a variety of hearty, soul-warming soups, stir-fries, and noodles that please the whole family, and in desserts that you thought couldn't taste any better than they normally do!

For those on a dairy-free diet, coconut milk is a rich and creamy substitute that can help you remake some of your favorite dishes. Since coconut milk retains a higher-than-usual amount of naturally occurring fat, it's definitely a comparable swap for things like whole milk &mdash a full cup of coconut milk can contain more than 400 calories and 45g of fat on average. But a higher calorie count doesn't make coconut milk a bad addition to a balanced diet, especially for those practicing a vegetarian (or flexitarian!) diet. Swapping full-fat dairy out for coconut milk is a smart choice if you think about some of the essential nutrients within it, including MCTs, which can work to reduce cholesterol with other informed nutritional choices.

Here, we're recapping some of the most inspired ways to use coconut milk at breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and for all the sweet moments in between. You'll add these egg dishes, fried rice, stir-fries, and sautés into your regular rotation once you realize how amazing a can of coconut milk truly is.

16 Delicious Homemade Dairy Products

Making homemade dairy products is not only cheaper in many cases, but it also tastes better too! There a few supplies that are a good idea to keep on hand for these dairy recipes.

  • Stand Mixer – It’s great for whipping and stirring ingredients together. A stand mixer helps give the products a creamy texture.
  • Cheesecloth – If you plan to make ricotta or other cheese recipes, cheesecloth is a must-have. It’s very inexpensive, so you can buy a lot and keep it on hand for your homemade dairy products.
  • Glass Jars – To store the cheese, butter, and other recipes, it’s helpful to have various sizes of glass jars.
  • Thermometer – It’s a great idea to use a reliable dairy/milk thermometer when making cheese or other dairy products. You will have much better luck than if you just guess the temperature.
  • Measuring Cups – This may seem like a no-brainer, but it’s vital to have a variety of measuring cups and measuring spoons because you are going to need them.
  • Colander – Depending on what you are making, a colander may be very useful. It’s important to use metal, enamel, or plastic. Stay away from anything that is aluminum, or it could react and mess up the recipe.

24. Vegan Strawberry Cheesecake Bites

As far as cheesecake bites go, these are pretty impressive.

Not only are they a beautiful color from the fresh strawberries, but they are packed with flavor.

I love the gluten-free crust here, with dates, pecans, and coconut, but you can always use a biscuit base made using vegan butter.

The filling just needs all five ingredients blended until smooth and poured over the crust.

They&rsquore super cute as minis, but would also work as a tray and cut into slices.

The only thing missing is a drizzle of dark chocolate or some chocolate shavings.
