    I omitted the sugar because my pineapple was plenty sweet enough. I froze my pineapple and only used a handful of ice. It needs a little something--maybe some fresh grated ginger???BTW, Dobie45--A review is supposed to be of the recipe posted; NOT reviewing your own recipe.

    You can buy Lactaid milk, tastes fine.Most grocery stores have it in different percentages, skim, 1%, 2%, etc.

     I think buttermilk substitute can be made by using 1c milk and 1 Tablespoon vinegar... so... for lactose intolerant, i'd think you could do 1 c soymilk and 1T vinegar....
