We’re going super old-school with this post.
No fancy photos.
No in-depth reviews.
Just a quick and cheerful post to share 4 dairy-free food products I’ve been loving over the last few months. The photos are random snaps I’ve taken on my phone but I think they’re fine for this post. For me, 2020 is all about not over-thinking blog posts.
Ben & Jerry’s is always a good idea. Now that they have dairy-free/vegan-friendly options it’s even better for us dairy-free folk. Here are two flavours we picked up the other week. They were on offer in Waitrose for 2 for £6 which makes a lovely change as they’re normally just over £5 per tub.
Both of these flavours are delicious and creamy. The Peanut Butter & Cookies flavour has the perfect balance of salt and sweet – my favourite combo. The Cookies & Cookie Dough is generouslly packed full of cookie dough chunks and chocolate, I think it’s even better than their classic cookie dough ice cream.
This is my favourite dairy-free butter, hands down. It comes in this spreadable version and also a block. I buy both whenever I see them and that ususally tends to be in Saunsbury’s. The spreadable version melts a little quicker if you leave it out of the fridge for too long but it’s perfect for melting straight onto toast. The block is ideal for baking.
Naturli is the only butter-alternative which has that real salted butter flavour. It’s creamy and has a slight saltiness to it. It’s wonderful on hot crumpets in the morning.
I no longer miss Lurpak or President …or not as much anyway.
This Roqberry Peppermint Cream tea is LOVELY but quite pricy at £4.99 for 12 bags. I like to buy it when it’s on offer but wouldn’t say no to a box at this price if I was running low. It’s seriously good and you can get about 3 good mugs of tea from one bag.
It’s a refreshing yet warming tea with a sweet mint and chocolatey flavour to it. I’ve been trying to cut back on eating sweet treats in the evening and this tea has really helped to curb any cravings I’ve had.
Some flavoured teas can really lack in flavour but that’s not the case when it comes to Roqberry, particularlly their Peppermint Cream teabags.
I’m a huge fan of OGGS, they’re such an innovative brand. They make a wide range of cupcakes, cakes and now, they have recently launched their Aquafaba Egg Substitute for baking and cooking – perfect if you can’t or choose not to eat eggs.
Their cakes are all dairy-free and vegan-friendly. We grabbed their Zesty Lemon Cake the other week when the weather was bad and this certainly turned our day around.
The cake was quite dense but is balanced out by being moist and filled with a sweet and citrusy lemon citrusy buttercream. It’s so good, I wish I had a slice right now.
I’ll be back with more foodie favourites soon.
