There’s no need to sidestep dairy completely if you’re lactose-intolerant.
Woolworths has a delicious range of free from lactose products to keep you happy – and creating dreamy treats in the kitchen.
What’s the deal with lactose?
Simply put, lactose is a type of sugar found mainly in milk and dairy products. Lactose free products undergo a process whereby these sugars are broken down, making them slightly sweeter and easier to digest. (Yay!)
– Free from lactose vanilla ice cream
– Free from lactose chocolate dairy ice cream
– Free from lactose low fat and full cream Ayrshire milk
– Free from lactose low fat Ayrshire strawberry yoghurt
– Free from lactose low fat Ayrshire plain yoghurt
– Lactose free Ayrshire full cream honey milk
Delicious on their own, these products are also great for cooking:
Double layer lactose free ice cream bars
Spread a tub of lactose free chocolate ice cream in a lined baking tray. Cover with baking paper and freeze to set. Repeat process with a layer of lactose free vanilla ice cream. Spread evenly and top with chopped frozen berries and crushed raw pistachios. Freeze until set, cut into small bars and enjoy!
Free from lactose honey milk rice pudding
Fry 100 g Arborio rice and 3 cardamom pods in 1 tablespoon coconut oil over medium to low heat for 5 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons caster sugar, ½ teaspoon vanilla extract and 4 cups lactose free full cream honey milk, and simmer for 20 – 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add a little more milk if needed to loosen the mixture. Add 100 g fresh strawberries and dig in!
Pro-tip: Woolworths’ lactose free Ayrshire full cream honey milk is slightly sweeter, so you’re adding less sugar than normal to the pudding. Score!
