I received some Mylk from Rebel Kitchen to try. These are dairy free coconut milk based milk alternatives. They have lovely modern packaging filled with sayings like ‘Keeping it real one bean at a time’ and each of the small 200ml straw drinks have characters with names. The chocolate fellow is Chock-A-Rocka and the Orange lad is Jaffa Joe!
There are many interesting flavours to try from Chai to Green Tea and the more child friendly banana, chocolate and orange. My boys including Daddy loved the orange chocolate flavour, they were all raving about it. All the drinks are completely natural their tagline is ‘Simple ingredients only, with nothing you cannot find in nature’. For example the ingredients in the Chocolate one are spring water, coconut milk, date nectar and cacao. Only 4 ingredients.
You can buy them in independent health shops around the country. My own local health store Mrs. Bee’s in Gorey has them, you can find a full list of stockists here.
Alpro Plain with Almond
I found this new Alpro flavour in Tesco, like the Plain with Coconut, it is very mild and nicer than plain yogurt, and is delicious with fresh fruit. Both boys will eat it on it’s own or with fruit. This is win win as it is very low in sugar. I love to mix this with fresh fruit rather than giving them the sugar-laden fruit flavoured ones all the time.
Alpro Gingerbread Man Flavour
And from healthier options to a sugar laden dessert. But it is oh so delicious. It is handy to have some dairy free desserts in a stash in the press in case someone arrives to the house with something the boys can’t have or in case we are going to someone’s house. I also put some in my bag when we go to a restaurant in case there are no dessert options for them. These gingerbread ones are the best I’ve tasted.
Tesco Free From Fruity Raspberry & Passion Fruit
I’m not sure if this is a new flavour of soya yogurt from the Tesco Free From range or if we just haven’t spotted it before. The boys loved it and it is a smooth yogurt as opposed to having bits in.
Tesco Free From Choc Buttons and Choc n Crispie Bar
These have been missing from the shelves in my local Tesco for a while but are back in new packaging. A Choc n’ crispie bar which we haven’t tried yet, and choc buttons. Both are dairy-free, wheat-free and gluten-free.
Have you found any new dairy-free foods lately?
