14 Dairy-Free Foods Worth Adding to Your Grocery Cart
Looking for dairy-free foods to up your snacking, baking and cooking game? We rounded up our favorite dairy-free products to help you cut out milk (but not flavor).
Safe + Fair Bar Mixes
Just because you’re cutting out dairy doesn’t mean you have to skip out on buttery blondies or rich brownies. Safe + Fair makes dairy-free (and allergen-free) bar mixes that won’t have you missing anything. An editor favorite at Taste of Home: Birthday Cake Blondies ($5)—all the great taste of a blondie plus a whole lot of rainbow sprinkles. The taste rivals some of our favorite homemade allergy-free treats for kids.
Bubba’s Fine Foods Nana Chips
These chips from Bubba’s Fine Foods ($20) are made from bananas but are perfectly savory and crunchy. Get them in three dairy-free, gluten-free flavors: Blazing Buffalo, Not-Cho Nacho and Garlic Parm.
My/Mo Cashew Cream Mochi
Mochi ice cream is the coolest ice cream treat we’ve seen in a long time. Learn all about it here. You can find it dairy-free from mochi brand My/Mo. This cashew cream version comes in four flavors (all are editor tested and approved): chocolate, vanilla, salted caramel and strawberry.
Bragg Nutritional Yeast
Looking for cheesy flavor without the milk? Skip the dairy-free cheese and opt for nutritional yeast instead. This ingredient has a natural nutty, cheesy flavor, making it great for sprinkling over pasta, popcorn and just about any savory dish you can think of. Grab a jar of Bragg Nutritional Yeast ($7) and get shaking.
Milkadamia Unsweetened Vanilla Coffee Creamer
When it comes to milk alternatives, there are a lot of good options—check out our favorites. It’s a bit more difficult to find a good, rich coffee creamer. Or it was until we tried Milkadamia’s unsweetened vanilla creamer. This creamer gives a great mild vanilla flavor and creamy consistency that melts right into your coffee.
Tofutti Dairy-Free Sour Cream
Sour cream gives many of our favorite recipes (like this contest-winning cake) their trademark richness. You don’t need to sacrifice that great texture when you opt out of dairy, though. Tofutti’s dairy-free sour cream acts just like the traditional version.
The Coconut Collaborative Chocolate Ganache Paradise Pots
These single-serve desserts from The Coconut Collaborative give you rich dark chocolate flavor combined with coconut cream. Of course, chocolate is a perennial favorite, but they also come in lemon and salted caramel. Try our copycat recipe here.
So Delicious Dairy Free Unsweetened Vanilla Coconut Milk Yogurt Alternative
So Delicious yogurt alternative is a great, slightly sweet (thanks to the coconut, not added sugar) breakfast or snack. It works great in smoothies or smoothie bowls like this one, and it’s one of our go-to dairy-free foods.
SMASHMALLOW Cinnamon Churro
Who needs plain marshmallows when you can have fun, snackable ones like SMASHMALLOW Cinnamon Churro marshmallows. Coated in cinnamon sugar, they taste just like your favorite churro.
Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Sticks (and Spreads)
RXBAR Protein Bars
Need a dairy-free snack to power you up when you’re on the go? RXBAR packs 12 grams of protein into a single bar. Get them in a variety of flavors. Our favorite is the peanut butter-berry combo ($20 for a 12-pack). You can get smaller, kid-friendly bars, too.
Artisan Kettle Chocolate Chips
Dairy-free foods don’t always have to feel like health food. Believe it or not, Oreos ($4) are dairy-free (and vegan). Snack away!
