How to Create Dairy Alternatives

If I could give parents one piece of advice when they are raising their children, it would be to get dairy out of their diet. These dairy alternatives are delicious options to satisfy the craving for the cream.

Dairy is good, right? Most people I know love cheese, ice cream, alfredo sauces, Mac-n-Cheese and all of the in between dairy products.

It’s creamy and delicious.

But it is absolutely terrible for your skin if you are acne prone.

Now, there’s the rub—if you are acne-prone. If you are not acne-prone, drink all the dairy you want.

Identifying an Allergy to Dairy

You may wonder, how do you know if you are allergic to dairy?

The first sign is break outs on your face. Yes, if you are breaking out and if you are consuming dairy, you most likely cannot process it the same way that people who are not acne-prone process it.

A break out on the face, chest or back is like an allergic reaction. It is the body’s way of signaling that something is wrong.

Warning, warning…the skin is flaring. There are deep cysts forming or even just small sandpaper-like bumps developing all over the skin or in one area or another.

Now, you may be allergic to other food items or other allergens in your life, and that’s where we come in. We will identify all of the things triggering you to break out.

If you touched poison ivy and broke out in a rash all over your hands and arms, would you touch poison ivy again? It’s the same thing with acne. Every time you consume dairy; I promise you–your body is reacting with pimples and pustules.

Dairy Alternatives

So, what can you do to get dairy out of the diet?

If you are a parent, I beg of you to try some of these dairy alternatives for your kids to try. 

Substitute almond milk, coconut milk, oat milk or rice milk for dairy milk. And, the same is true for yogurts and coffee creamers. There are so many plant-based delicious options on the market. There really is no reason to not be able to eliminate dairy from the diet.

Did you know that you can add lemon juice to non-dairy milk to create a buttermilk alternative?

Try blending avocados with a pinch of salt and lime juice very smooth for an alternative to sour cream. 

Need condensed milk? Add sugar and a dash of salt to any dairy-free milk.

Finally, who doesn’t love ice cream? Well, there are some amazing dairy alternatives to ice cream in the frozen food section at the grocery store. You can find almond milk ice cream, oat milk ice cream and coconut milk ice cream.

But if you want to make a super simple and majorly delicious dairy-free ice cream, give our banana, strawberry and coconut ice cream a try. We love blending frozen bananas with a bit of coconut or almond milk as the base for our ice cream. You can then blend any other flavors into the mix, including cocoa powder, strawberries, orange juice, etc. 

Eliminating Dairy

There you have it…so many options to dairy. I beg of you—if you or your child are struggling with acne, you must give up the dairy. Do not try to eat less. It must be eliminated.

When I ask clients about dairy, they often say the don’t eat too much dairy. One slice of pizza is too much dairy. One glass of milk is too much dairy. One string cheese is too much dairy.

If you want to get clear and stay clear—go all in!
