Well, I lit up like the 4th of July when I saw all these awesome dairy free options.

All are wonderful, but I am really eager to try the pineapple whip and fudgsicles….all summer long please!

No clue why, but dairy makes me cough, not sure if it’s an allergy or just the way I react to it or what but dairy bothers me! I used to mix whey and a little milk and would cough the rest of the day. Cheese is bothersome too. Wish I could get some answers but no medical doctors have been of any real help! oh well.


I love the look of the pinapple whip – hope you had a great holiday!


I’m thankful for the reminder of these great recipes, as my mom (just a few weeks ago) had to go from lactose-free to completely dairy-free. Though she’d already been mostly dairy-free, she’s actually super bummed to lose even the few lactose-free dairy products she thought she could have. So, I’m excited to show her that being completely dairy-free can be delicious!
