I’m going to be honest, I haven’t had real chocolate milk in a while. Thanks to cacoa blocks and chocolate power + soy milk or lactofree milk you can make a decent hot chocolate replacement, but this Oatly Chocolate milk is new to me. It is made of oats so its soy free, dairy free, lactose free and I would assume its vegan too.
This chocolate drink is really really nice. It was hard not to drink the entire litre in one sitting. My one niggle is that it could be a little thicker, but that would be verging more on milkshake than chocolate milk (feel free to start making milkshakes too Oatly!), and you could thicken this up fairly easily if you wanted. With a little ice on a hot day its delicious. I found my Oatly chocolate milk in Tesco and I’m not sure where else you can get it, so if you spot it let me know in the comments. What do you do to quench your chocolate milk thirst if you’re lactose intolerant or trying to avoid dairy?
Would fully recommend this product and it will be going in my shopping cart next time I see it for sure!
There is a new Food law coming into effect in the EU that means all catering companies would have to list which allergens it contains, which is going to be great news for anyone with allergies like lactose intolerance or milk who can never be sure where it might be hidden! We spoke to Liz Allan from Allergy Aware Kitchen who explains this new regulation in a bit more detail.
New Food Allergen Law – Food Information Regulations (EU1169/2011)
December 13th 2014 marks the introduction of the Food Information Regulations (EU1169/2011) which is being introduced by the Food Standards Agency and DEFRA.
These regulations bring together and update a series of existing regulations regarding nutrition and allergen ingredients information.
Churros are one of my favourite snacks, and the Spanish recipe is dairy and lactose free. Perfect, if not entirely healthy!
This is one of my favourite recipes. I’ve had it cooked for me a few times, and I was shown how to make it. But I finally got around to making it myself. Its quite easy to make, its lactose and dairy free naturally. (No swapping ingredients out!). Delicious Spanish omlette, the hardest part is flipping it over just before its done. You’ll need a deep pan, that is just smaller than a dinner plate to cook this in.
I tried the Five Guys in London last night, and while the burger wasn’t bad at all (I still prefer Honest Burger ) it was lucky I checked online first to see if they contained any lactose.
Right so you fancy some KFC and what can you have? I’ve seen people recreating KFC by soaking the chicken in milk first so I was curious and wondered if this might be the case with the genuine stuff as it doesn’t tend to agree with me, and hidden lactose might be the culprit. So I took a look at the following and it’s not as simple as you’d think, some chicken does, some doesn’t. So lets have a look at which items contain milk and lactose at KFC.
its quite a long document so I’m going to sum it all up here and do the hard work for you
Now do KFC chips contain milk? Weirdly they aren’t in the PDF so I had to look on the UK site – and it says they don’t contain milk (Do they not serve fries in other KFC’s around the world?)
And weirdly not all “creamy” items are out!
So what CAN you have?
What do you usually have?
