Lactofree chocolate cake

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

Arla, the company who produce Lactofree dairy products very kindly sent me some vouchers to try their products for free.

If you have digestive discomfort after consuming foods made with cows’ milk, you could be lactose intolerant. But you don’t need to miss out on the foods you love as Lactofree has a range of real dairy products, just without the lactose.

While many people think they’re intolerant to dairy, the uncomfortable symptoms that occur after eating dairy are often caused by lactose, the natural sugar found in milk. Lactose intolerance is the inability to digest lactose, which can begin from birth or develop at any age. Visit the Lactofree website for more information.

I decided to make my chocolate brownie recipe using Lactofree Spreadable instead of butter or margarine. I topped it with chocolate ganache made using equal quantities of Lactofree Cream and dairy free plain chocolate.

The recipes turned out well. They tasted just the same as if I’d used my usual butter and cream.

The cream also whips well and I used it to make sour cream by adding a little lemon juice.

Thanks to Lactofree, people who are lactose intolerant can now enjoy a full range of dairy products again.

Vanilla Rice Dream

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

A short review!

I received a carton of Vanilla Rice Dream to try last week. I have used rice milk before but it’s always nice to receive something for free!

I do find rice milk too thin in consistency for cooking but the Vanilla Rice Dream is refreshing as a drink. I keep a few small cartons of the milkshakes to take on picnics.

My mother in law makes a lovely cup of coffee using half a cup of hot Vanilla Rice Dream and half a cup of hot water.

The Rice Dream website gives lots of information about their products and general advice about allergies and intolerances. It also contains lots of dairy free recipes.

New Lactofree Film

Friday, April 23rd, 2010



Many of those experiencing the uncomfortable symptoms of lactose intolerance still don’t know the cause of their upset, so the team at Lactofree created The Dairy Dilemma, a short animated film to show them how to take control and mend their broken relationship with dairy.

The film, illustrated by young designer Niki Pilkington, follows a young woman who is determined to discover the source of her discomfort in order to live her life to the full.

The new Lactofree adverts made me chuckle!

Monday, January 25th, 2010

I recently saw an advert for Lactofree milk on tv which made me laugh.

I had been wondering if people with a lactose intolerance could actually drink this.  I’ll buy some on my next shopping trip and let you know what I think.
