4 New Recipes and Dairy-free Alternatives

by October 5, 2017


Some of you eat dairy, some of you do not. That’s cool.

I like to make sure that we have a little bit of everything here on Healthful Pursuit, for everyone. The definition of health is different for each and every one of us. Paleo, vegan, grain-free, dairy-free, candida, sugar-free…

Every month, I create 4 new recipes for Happy Days Dairies. Last month, I shared the 4 recipes with you and also gave you tips on how to shift a couple of ingredients around to make them into dairy-free recipes. You all loved the first post so very much that I’ve decided to make this a monthly thing.

You ready? Cheddar Cheese Sauce (7)White Cheddar Cheese Sauce – Thick and rich cheddar cheese sauce… perfect for a big bowl of fresh cooked pasta! Dairy-free alternative: stay tuned this week. I have a solution to all of your cheese sauce woes. Strawberry-Cheesecake-Shooters-(37)Strawberry Cheesecake Shooters – Mini strawberry cheesecakes made in shot glasses to control portion size… and to feel cute while eating them! Dairy-free alternative: stuff my vegan cheesecake in shot glasses and call it a day! To make things easier, you could use a fruit spread topping like in the Happy Days recipe and ditch the cranberries. Curried Grilled Cheese (24)Curried Grilled Cheese – Curried onions, mayonnaise and goat cheese in a grown up style grilled cheese. Dairy-free alternative: your best bet is to use a dairy-free cheese like daiya vegan cheese or make your own vegan shredded cheese… but it will not be melty. Creamy Lime Quinoa Salad (18)Creamy Lime Quinoa Salad – A fresh and light salad packed with high protein quinoa, black beans and fresh veggies, surrounded in a creamy goat cheese and lime dressing. Dairy-free alternative: remove the goat cheese all together and just have this salad with olive oil and lime juice. Still so VERY good! I’d love to hear from you… Do you follow a specific diet – whether it be paleo, vegan, vegetarian, dairy-free, sugar-free… Or, do you let your body be your guide and just eat what you feel you need to? Your wisdom and experience can make a huge difference for others… so share away!
