In our final blog post this week for #Allergyweek, we have some dairy free (and gluten free) ranch dip!  We also rounded up some Allergy friendly recipes from other sites that we pinned to our new Allergy Pinterest Board. Check it out here.

Whether you have a dairy allergy, or are lactose intolerant, it’s great to have substitutes! In fact, 30-50 MILLION people in the United States alone are lactose intolerant! That’s a lot of people going without cheese and yogurt!  But when you have to suffer from the pain associated with trying to digest lactose, it’s better to just find a good substitute. Especially where kids are affected, you want them to be able to enjoy food without it making them ill.

Although we don’t have a milk allergy in my house, we often make our ranch dressing without milk.  Ranch dressings and dips are my kids favorite way to eat any salad or vegetable.  Store bought seasoning packets often have ingredients we don’t need- like MSG!  Not to mention, the traditional way to make ranch dip includes milk!  But making it with a milk substitute literally tastes just as good, according to my kids.  We made this ranch dip with some nayonaise (you can use Mayonnaise), soy milk, and the seasonings (full recipe below)

Our skewered veggie pots were super simple! We didn’t bother making any flower shapes or designs. We simply skewered a variety of veggies, and kept them standing straight up by puncturing them into half a lemon in the bottom of our clean flower pot.

Then, we filled the “soil” with some chopped broccoli.

Yikes soy milk is a huge allergen. Maybe coconut milk? Although I guess that would alter the flavor. Thanks for the breakdown on the spices! I’m going to try this with vegenaise and I’m not sure what for the milk. Thanks!

Any soy and egg free alternatives for the mayo? Perhaps coconut milk yogurt? My son is allergic to gluten, dairy, eggs, soy and a few other foods. I’d love to make him a ranch dip… And a ranch dressing. Thank you!

Thank You! I’m Whey Allergic and I Love Ranch dip! I’ve been eating it anyways, which is negatively affecting my health. This can be one of the recipes in my aresenal, so making my healthy change doesn’t feel like I’m missing out.

I use and my whole family likes it (although they save it mostly for me since I can’t have eggs and won’t eat soy) a product called Veganaisse (sp?) they have different varieties but it’s soy and egg free.

You need to do some reading on soy, thyroid disease, breast cancer and why soy is not a health food. 96% of soy is GMO. Read Kaayla Daniels book The Whole Soy Story or Pandoras Lunchbox by Melanie Warner and get your kids and yourself off soy! The only way I consume it is fermented and organic. Miso, Tempeh, Tamari or Natto. Not soy milk!

Hi Peg! If you need an egg-free recipe it’s fine to substitute a vegan mayonnaise in place of regular mayonnaise.

Does Hellmans mayo contain milk?need lactose free and gluten free mayo also allergic to coconut will almond milk work

Hi Brenda! Hellman’s mayo does not contain any dairy or lactose. There’s no coconut in this recipe, but if you’d like to sub the soy milk with almond milk, you can.
