Dairy-free Treats and Eats

Because yesterday's post mentioned that I don't feel deprived at all now without dairy, I figured I'd take a moment to share a few of my favorite dairy product substitutes.  Ironically enough, all of the following are from a wonderfully fair-trade and eco-friendly brand called Turtle Mountain, be sure to check them out.

1. So Delicious Coconut Milk - If it's good enough for Jillian Michaels, it's good enough for me!  But seriously, of all the milk substitutes I've tried, coconut milk is my favorite.  I've never been a huge fan of Soy Milk. Rice Milk is fine on occasion, but often too watery for my taste. Almond Milk is great, but I'm not always in the mood for the nutty aftertaste.  Coconut, on the other hand, is a flavor I'm always down for.  Not only that, but the natural sweetness of the coconut adds a great flavor to my healthy grain cereals.

2. Luna & Larry's Dark Chocolate Coconut Bliss Frozen Dessert - Tastes like a Samoa cookie in a smooth, frozen cream! PLUS I feel much better about eating dessert when it's sweetened with agave nectar and loaded with the health benefits of coconut.

3. So Delicious Mint Marble Fudge Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert - My newest discovery, I cannot put this ice cream down.  Normally, I find soy dairy substitutes to be lacking in flavor with a bit of a bland aftertaste, but this stuff I would swear was real the real thing! Organic, non-dairy, and half the calories per serving than regular ice cream...what more could a girl ask for?
