Hoping to open a FODMAPS cafe one day with delicious food that people with intolerances, like me, can actually eat!

One of my best friends was recently put on a lactose free diet and she couldn’t believe how many foods she suddenly couldn’t eat. I was happy to share some advice about my favourite lactose free products – that are easy to find at the local supermarket!

This ice-cream has got to be the best invention ever! You can’t even tell the difference in taste when comparing it to normal ice-cream, but your tummy definitely knows the difference.

It’s very creamy and tastes a bit like the McDonald’s ice-cream cakes – even more so when you add coloured sprinkles. 🙂 But it’s best not to add any toppings or maple syrup – you’ll make it way too sweet.

My sister-in-law found this in the cold section at Coles and it has had a permanent presence in my freezer ever since – obviously I’ve had to regularly replace it!

Apart from Peter, it seems that Paul also knows what he’s doing when it comes to yummy lactose free products!

It taste just like ‘normal’ milk – perhaps slightly sweeter. It’s ideal for those who aren’t fans of soy or rice milk.

This product is available in full cream, lite and skim.

Zymil also has a thickened cream product, which is the perfect replacement for normal cream for cakes, desserts etc.


Danone Activia Yoghurt – Berries flavour 

While this product isn’t lactose free per se, I find that I don’t react badly to it. This is because it contains an exclusive probiotic culture called Bifidus ActiRegularis, which can reduce digestive discomfort.

Not everyone with a lactose intolerance can handle it though, so it will require a bit of trial and error. But it’s much nicer than soy yoghurts or no yoghurt at all!

That’s it from me for now – but please let me know if you discover any other awesome lactose free products!


Comments on: "A few of my favourite things… (Lactose Free)" (11)

  1. Peter’s Ice Cream and Pauls Zymil are regulars in my house as well! They taste like the real thing! I can now enjoy a homemade milkshake using Pauls without the symptoms!
    However, my tummy does not like Activia so much. I can’t seem to tolerate it.

    • Yeah, Activia doesn’t seem to be for everyone. I also find that I can only eat it in the morning – otherwise I seem to get indigestion. But yay for lactose free ice-cream and milk!

    • Which flavour for the Liddels lactose free yoghurt do you buy? I don’t mind the apricot one, but it’s not always available at my local Coles.

        Apricot ove is nice, have had a strawberry and mixed berry. Both very nice. Love your blog, nice to have an Aussie one, especially when talking about products.

  3. Wonderful post however I was wanting to know if you could write a litte more on this subject?
    I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little bit further. Kudos!

  4. I was under the belief that peter’s ice cream was unsuitable for those (me) following a low-fodmap diet as the sugar comes in the form of glucose from wheat. Very disappointing, I thought I had finally found a nice ice cream to enjoy.

    • Oh Bree, that is so disappointing! I wasn’t aware about that! I haven’t had any reactions after consuming it though. Have you tried it in small doses?
