Elmlea Plant double cream is double delicious!

We find that dairy alternatives can be VERY hit and miss. We decided to give this a go to see what it was like and it didn’t disappoint. Poured over hot chocolate pudding it was lovely and tasted very similar to “normal” pouring cream. We also tried whipping it up for a trifle. It whippedContinue reading “Elmlea Plant double cream is double delicious!”

Candy Kittens vegan and gluten free sweets – yummy!

We love jelly sweets in our house but being vegetarian I find they often contain gelatine so are no good for me. Others contain wheat so are no good for the hubby. These jelly sweets are yummy! The scent of sweet deliciousness when you open the bag is lush and the flavours are fabulous! TheContinue reading “Candy Kittens vegan and gluten free sweets – yummy!”

Yummy dairy free puddings!

Alpro have a lovely range of dairy free desserts. Creamy caramel, velvet vanilla, dark chocolate and milk chocolate. We love them all! As an added bonus they have a long shelf life compared to the dairy versions (usually a good 6 months or so) and they are all only around 86 kCals each so fairlyContinue reading “Yummy dairy free puddings!”

Plant based loaded potato skins are a go!

Cheese is one of those things that we just can’t find a decent dairy free alternative to, so when it came to these dairy and gluten free loaded potato skins by ASDA we were a little apprehensive. We decided to be brave and go for it (in the name of research). We are so pleasantlyContinue reading “Plant based loaded potato skins are a go!”

Our favourite cheesey Free From crisps

One thing that was a favourite and was very missed when Steve first had to go dairy free was cheese and onion crisps! Many crisps have milk in and some contain wheat. Finding tasty dairy free and gluten free was a mission. Chilli cheese hummus crisps are perfect when you want a bit of crunchContinue reading “Our favourite cheesey Free From crisps”

A good dairy and gluten free squirty cream!

This dairy free squirty cream has been a bit of a game changer for us. It’s quick and convenient, has a good shelf life and tastes yummy. The only down side we’ve found is that it does go a bit runny quite quickly after being squirted onto your pudding. We always have a can inContinue reading “A good dairy and gluten free squirty cream!”

Our dairy free milk preferences

We have tried many different dairy free milk alternatives and I know that people do have their own personal preferences. When you look at all that’s on offer it can be a little overwhelming where to start! We’ve been through almond, soy, oat, coconut…… after all of that trying and testing here’s our thoughts!
