Hold the Cow

If you’d like to hear my conversation with Kristen Chase about raising a child with a milk allergy, please click on the little “blog talk radio” icon in the right column. Hopefully, I’m not too dorky sounding on the radio.

For anyone who would like to peek into our pantry, I’ve put together a list of our favorite milk-free “finds”. These are things that we usually have on hand for Belly (and often the rest of us). I’ve left off the obvious things like Soy Milk, apples or carrots. Rest assured, she is not living on Oreos and Tings, although she would like that to be the case.

Favorite Milk-Free* Supermarket Discoveries

Oreos or Country Choice Organic Sandwich Creams
O’Soy Yogurt
Honey Maid Graham Crackers
Hannaford Store Brand Cake Mixes and Brownies (most flavors)
Pillsbury Frostings (some flavors)
Ghirardelli Semi-Sweet Chocolate Baking Chips
Bakers Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chunks
Fig Newmans (Wheat Free and Dairy Free variety)
Dove Dark Chocolate Ice Cream Topping
SO Delicious Ice Creams
PhillySwirl Swirl Stix Popsicles
Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese and Sour Supreme
Tofutti Cuties
ZenSoy Pudding
Soyatoo! Sprayable Whipped Cream

Tofutti Pizza
Earth Balance’s Buttery Sticks (new to our supermarket!) and their Whipped Spread
SoyBoy Ravioli (discontinued from our store—a sad day—really great stuff)

Here is also a great site for lists of vegan foods (a valuable resource for those with milk and egg allergies).

* Always double check labels, and note that some items may be processed on equipment that has been exposed to milk. For us, this is not a problem, but it may be a huge issue for people whose children are severely allergic to milk. When in doubt, contact the manufacturer directly.


  1. The Baby is going to be tested for dairy and egg allergies soon. Oh boy! There goes gluten, eggs and milk! She can live on apples!

  2. TraceyTreasure says

    CAN.I.LIVE.IN.YOUR.PANTRY? Wow! I’m hungry reading all of that and I just had dinner. What yummy snacks you have!! Hope your Summer has been fun so far!! I have some catching up to do with your posts!! Hugs!!

  3. Yup, I’m “That Mom” too. Peanut has a (duh!) peanut allergy, so we are all too familiar with the label-reading and constant vigilance. Bummer, no?

  4. O Soy yogurt contains one of the milk proteins… don’t have one handy, can’t remember which one.

    Thanks for this post. We’re always looking for dairy free food for our little guy, so he doesn’t feel left out.
