Tip! Read this post to learn more about why you might want to try a dairy-free diet: How to Eat Dairy-Free + an Easy 1-Minute Dairy Free Milk Recipe.

What foods are gluten and dairy-free?

  • Fresh Veggies and Fresh Fruit: All including apples, bell peppers, berries, bok choy, broccoli, carrots, citrus fruit, leafy greens, sweet potatoes, & zucchini noodles.
  • Beans and Legumes: All including black beans, chickpeas, lentils, navy beans, soybeans, and white bean.

Easy Dairy Free Recipe Swaps

  • Swap dairy milk with any plant based milk. Soy milk has about the same amount of protein as cow and goat milk. Other (lower protein) options are almond milk, cashew milk, coconut milk, flax milk, hemp milk, oat milk (make sure it’s certified gluten free), macadamia milk, and pea milk. Or try making your own using this easy 1-milk dairy-free milk recipe.
  • Swap cheese with plant-based cheese. If you haven’t tried plant-based cheese in awhile, there are some pretty tasty ones available. I really like Miyoko’s Creamery and Kite Hill dairy-free cheeses. (Be sure to read labels to make sure these products are also gluten free.)
  • Swap butter with a dairy-free alternative. Extra-virgin olive oil and avocado are two of my favorite heart healthy butter swaps. I also like Melt Organic and Earth Balance Organic spreads.
  • Swap yogurt with plant-based yogurt. You have a lot of options when it comes to choosing a plant-based yogurt these days. Choose from coconut milk, cashew milk (Forager), and soy milk versions. (Tip! Plant based yougurt can be a great way to add more fermented foods to your diet for better health!)
  • Swap dairy ice cream with plant-based ice cream or sorbet. Ice cream lovers rejoice! You don’t have to give up your favorite treat! Choose from coconut milk and oat milk versions available in your grocery store. As always, read lables. Just because a prodcut is diary-free, it doesn’t automatically mean it’s gluten-free too!
