    Cream Alternative?

    Shop Now
    I'm lactose intolerant. I do eat yogurt (full fat, of course!) and artisan cheeses. These do not bother me. However, milk, ice cream, and cottage cheese are all definite no no's for me.

    In my morning coffee I love a dab of cream. Alas, while I like it, my body does not. I'm wondering if there isn't a good alternative? I've tried coffee black, and I do not like it. I do not care for Almond milk either.

    As I'm typing this, the thought just occurred to me that a spoonful of yogurt might do the trick. I will try that next and let you know what I think. In the meantime, I'd love to hear what other cream alternatives people are using. Thanks in advance!

    everyone's experience with this stuff is different, and while i don't mean to cast doubt, something doesn't add up. cream has just about no lactose. if you can handle artisan cheese, which has more, and yogurt, which generally has more (the bacteria don't consume all the lactose), cream should be no problem. like butter.

    You could give heavy whipping cream a shot. Many products that say they are "cream" are actually part cream and part milk, especially if you go out to a coffee bar or a restaurant. Check to make sure your cream is just that and you might not have a problem.

    Interesting. All I can tell you is what my body is telling me. Perhaps RitaRose is on to something:

    Under Ingredients it lists (in order): cream, carrageenan, mono-diglycerides, polysorbate 80, cellulose gum. Contains Milk.

    They actually bolded the "Contains Milk." So maybe that is it, as milk always tears me up. I'm also not liking some of those other non-paleo sounding ingredients. Another reason to stop using cream, or at least this variety.

    FYI, I tried plain yogurt this afternoon. It was not very good. Better than black coffee, but not even close to as good as heavy cream.

    Of course, dairy cream is pretty low in lactose too.

    I would opt for the version that has this ingredient list: Cream.

    Try Kalona Supernatural grass fed cream if you can find it. Whole Foods carries it here. I'm ga-ga for it <3

    My Whole Foods stopped carrying it, but the Kalona Supernatural cream was some of the best I've ever had. So sweet and thick and the bottle was HUGE. I'm going to talk to the dairy buyer about getting it back.

    Also, look into raw cream. It's more expensive, but it's very rich and a little goes a LONG way.
    Visit my blog Primal Homeskillet. And eat it too.
