I started cooking with Lactaid a couple of years ago due to Em’s lactose intolerance. I have found that I can use it in any recipe that calls for milk and the recipes taste just as delicious as if I used regular milk.

It’s simple to cook with Lactaid because the exchange is simple 1 to 1. 1 cup of milk equals 1 cup of Lactaid.Cooking With Lactaid

Yesterday I made White Chocolate Pudding using Lactaid. What I love about making pudding is that its so easy for summer! Basically it’s just mix, pour and chill. Easy. Peasy.

Just mix up the pudding per package directions and pour into the graham cracker crusts and chill for 3 hours.Top with strawberries.

Right before serving top the pudding with strawberries picked from the garden. Our strawberry season is wrapping up, but I was able to still grab a good sized handful from the garden…so very good!!

I’ve also used Lactaid in alfredo sauce. This is one of our favorite meals and its easy to make. Yes, I use alfredo sauce on any type of noodle. I just use whatever I find in the pantry.

Cooking With Lactaid


1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons flour
1 clove of garlic, finely minced
2 cups of Lactaid


1. Over medium heat melt butter. Add garlic and saute for 1-2 minutes. Add flour and mix until you have a thick paste. Add Lactaid and continuously mix to remove all lumps.

Continue mixing until sauce starts to thicken. Simmer for 4-5 minutes until you have a nice sauce.

**If the sauce seems to thick, add in Lactaid 1 tablespoon at a time until it reaches the consistency you like. Too thin and you can add a bit of flour.**

2. Remove from heat, add lactose free cheese (usually aged white cheddars are lactose free) and serve over noodles.
