If you are trying to go dairy-free and you don't know where to begin we have a helpful chart to start your journey. From the team at howlongtocook.org comes this beautiful visualization of dairy substitutes. Did you know that avocados and coconut oil can be used in place of butter? These foods can both recreate the creamy, fatty texture and taste that you get when using butter although there may be some getting used to the new textures they provide. For those who want to give up cheese, an almond or cashew cheese may hit the spot and can also provide lots of protein and nutrients. Tofu can also be used as a dairy alternative and when mixed with some salt and oil can almost pass for real dairy cheese. If you are looking for a yogurt alternative this guide suggests trying a soy, coconut, almond or cashew-based yogurt instead. How many are you willing to try next time you are craving dairy?
