I keep forgetting I’m lactose intolerant. I’ve only been so for the last year or two (around the time I turned 50), so it’s no wonder it’s not ingrained on my brain. It’s easy to forget, until I eat a dairy product and then suffer afterwards. (read: What is Lactose Intolerance? Lactose-Free Eating Tips)
I’ve been exploring some of the lactose-free products available – using supplements when a lactose-free alternative is not available – but I’m TERRIBLE at taking pills, so I prefer a product that’s ready to use. Lactaid has several milks that fit my needs from fat-free to whole (though I’ve yet to find an organic which is my preference).
I don’t drink a lot of cows milk, but when I do, it has to be lactose free. But I didn’t realize that I can cook with the Lactaid just like any other milk. I visited the Lactaid website to check out their list of recipes – there are savory recipes, sweet recipes, and everything in between available. I tried out their 3-ingredient Dulce De Leche with Coconut recipe.
