Dairy free shopping trolley from ALDI

By | September 10, 2018

So can you do your dairy free shopping in Aldi? Absolutely. I first wrote this post in August 2014. It is 4 years old and one of the most popular posts on the site. Since then Aldi has come on in leaps and bounds for all sorts of dairy free and free from products, so an update is well overdue. Information is now up to date for September 2018. I first wrote the post after someone found my blog having searched for ‘dairy free in ALDI’ so I decided it might be a good idea to actually do a post like this.

I have listed the items under dairy free and ‘may contain milk’ headings. While ALDI don’t have a dedicated free from dairy section, many of the products are naturally dairy free.

Aldi also have published a full list of their products suitable for people avoiding milk and lactose. You can find the information on their Living Lactose Free page. Although the page title refers to just lactose free, the list contains a list of products which do not contain milk.

Dairy free:

The Big Five:

MILK ALTERNATIVES: Soy Milk Unsweetened, Soy Milk Sweetened, Almond MIlk Unsweetened and Almond Milk Sweetened.

YOGURT: Soyummy 500ml tubs – Vanilla, Blueberry or Natural flavours.

ICE-CREAM: I haven’t seen them for a while but these coconut based ice-creams are delicious and much better value than orther brands.

They occasionally have sorbets, but some contain milk and some carry ‘may contain milk’ warnings. There are often juice and water based multi packs of ice-pops too which generally are dairy free but always check to be sure.

CHEESE: Currently no dairy free cheeses available in Aldi Ireland

BUTTER: Currently there is no dairy free butter available in Aldi Ireland. Note the baking margarine used to contain no milk but now contains milk.

Here’s a random shopping trolley from one of my weekly shops in Aldi. I will do a new one of these soon and update the post.

Clearly the fruit and vegetables are all dairy free.

I hope this will serve as a guide for dairy free products available in ALDI. This is not an exhaustive list by any means, it’s just what I had in my trolley one week. The list Aldi provides is much more complete. Please double check all labels as always as they are always subject to change. Do you have any dairy free favourites from ALDI? I would love to hear about them.

      Thanks Claire, glad you are enjoying the posts. What age is your little one? Best of luck, it gets easier with time. I found it such a learning curve to start with.

    Hi I love this page. My son has serious life threatening illness called “Galactosaemia”. His diet is strictly dairy free. I’m finally finding it a little easier to think of foods to give him. Your updates help a lot. Thank you carol xx

      Me too, I often think I’d like to do the shopping part of the online grocery orders to nose at what other people buy. I still plan to do this for the other supermarkets too but I haven’t gotten around to it yet.

    Thank you for the information provided. Its very useful. I have gastroparesis which leaves me with a very restricted diet and I have now developed a severe dairy allergy.

    I’m not a kid I’m a fuly grown adult, however after searching the internet extensively for dairy free foods and getting extremely disheartened, I’ve found your post which has given me a little hope. Thank you.

    Aldi version of Jaffa cakes are also dairy free, and they also have a choc bar similar to after eight and this is also dairy free as it’s dark choc…. this is the area I struggle with, little treats for my daughter!
