Lactaid Ice Cream

I've snooped around my local supermarkets hoping to find some for my lactose intolerant daughter to try. I haven't been successful at finding it though. Before I go through more trouble to find it or have a place here order it for me, has anyone tried the stuff? How is it?

  1. I haven't seen it but we really like So Delcious coconut milk ice cream. I find that a lactase tablet handles my issues when I'm really experiencing bad LI symptoms, plus taking a probiotic regularly. HTH.

      We love So Delicious as well. I just feel that she needs the calcium in the cow's milk products. The lactaid milk has worked well for her. I was wondering how the ice cream tasted.

        I saw Breyers Lactose Free at a speciality grocers near me (Draegers) and tried it. It tasted fake and wasn't that creamy, but then again, I didn't care for Breyers before I became lactose intolerant either. I didn't buy it again. Instead, I like the Purely Decadent soy based ice cream, and the nut milk based ones like Scream in Oakland, CA. I'm looking forward to trying Genuto as well. The So Delicious coconut ice cream tastes really great, but is way too fatty for me to enjoy often.

        I did recently come across Lactaid cottage cheese. It was salty and delcious. And the Green Valley Organics lactose free sour cream, yogurt, and kefir are wonderful. Maybe you could make ice cream using the kefir?

          oooh, making ice cream using kefir sounds like a good idea. For now, I've been making ice cream for her in our vitamix. Lactaid milk, frozen fruit, some sugar and a dash of vanilla extract. She loves that. I just like to give her more options. She gets bored rather quick.
