    Default Recipes for dairy-free mumma's and bubs

    So my dd2 has been diagnosed with a cows milk allergy and as she is only 10 weeks I am still breastfeeding her. I need to cut all dairy from my diet but just wanted to create a thread where we can share recipes and tips.

    So tonight I took advice from another lovely hubber and made myself some custard with coconut cream instead of cows milk. OMG it is delicious! So thick and creamy. Very rich. My DD1 asked to try it and I wasn't sure if she would like it considering she knows what normal custard tastes like. Well she ate the whole portion I gave her! I'm excited to get some recipes down-pat and tasting fab so that by the time DD2 can eat solids, I have a few yummy dishes up my sleeve. So what recipes can you share?

    Mine was pretty basic. Just custard powder with water and then added to hot coconut cream in a saucepan. I also added brown sugar to taste. I think next time I might go half coconut and half oat milk.

    I've gone dairy free twice while feeding my CMPSI babies. I've started similar threads before- let me see if I can find them for you!

    Subbing!!! Came across a good one for pancakes once, easy least (and because we need to avoid eggs too!) so it's
    1 cup flour
    1 cup soda water
    1 tablespoon sugar

    Voila!

    Here are some food ideas- golden brand crumpets with nuttlex and honey, Oreo cookies, BBQ shapes, sesame snaps, plain potato chips, plain corn chips and salsa, some dips- hummus, baba ghanoush, beetroot dip, also there is a sweet potato and pistachio one I can't remember the brand which is nice. Marshmallows, jelly lollies like snakes, Lindt 70% chocolate, whittakers dark chocolate with almonds, jelly, weis sorbets, corn thins with peanut butter, apple and cinnamon rice cakes, some Turkish bread is ok, wraps are sometimes ok. For something "creamy" go for avocado and mayonnaise, some Thai food is soy free, or rice paper rolls with sweet chili. Be careful with oils since some vegetable oil has soy in it. Dinners are easy to do- For example, start a risotto with olive oil instead of butter and just add Parmesan to those who can have it. Meat and 3 veg /salad are easy to make dairy free.

    Someone else suggested making custard on almond milk. I'm going to try that as well. I'm so glad you like the coconut milk custard. I realised after the fact bit to use the powdered version as it contains milk solids.

    Definitely subbing and will come back for ideas.

    And I was so excited the other day when I realised I could have hommus.

    A recipe I modified from weight watchers, Dairy free zuchini slice

    6 eggs
    80gms sr flour
    Salt and pepper to taste
    Large onion (finely diced/grated in processor)
    1 cup each of zuchinni pumpkin and carrot (all grated)

    Beat eggs
    Whisk in flour, salt and pepper
    Add grated ingredients. Mix.

    Pour into greased quiche dish. Bake on 180 till done (about 40 mins)

    Also awesome cold, and can be frozen.


    I do alot of wedges (slice a washed potato into chunky wedges, season if you like, place on baking paper, oven bake 180 till brown

    Stir fries, rice, pasta dishes. Meat and veg, salads. I use nuttlex on toast.

    I make dairy free lasagne. Just layer sauce with pasta sheets, no cheese or sauce.

    Shepards pie, use nuttlex to mash the potato.

    I don't eat it but would gelato be ok?

    Thanks ladies!!

    Cynde - I looked for previous threads and didn't come across any.... but thanks so so much for linking them!! Awesome list on snacks too. I swear I have re-read the Oreo cookies box 10 times thinking its top good to be true. I also found the same with home brand basic garlic bread, it only has canola oil...how correct do you think this one could be?
