DAIRY FREE DIP TIPS
Dairy free dips can taste just as good as regular dairy dips if you chose the right ingredients. Most dairy free dips use vegan or plant based alternatives to common dairy products. Finding the right dairy free product is key to make your dips texture, taste and melt be similar of those with dairy.
- Dairy Free Cheese. Dairy free cheeses can be tricky because some do not melt as well as others. If you have a favorite that you love the texture and taste of, use it in these dips. If you do not know the best to pick, the following are my personal favorites that melt well and taste very close to dairy cheese: Violife Cheddar; Field Roast Chao Slices; and Follow Your Heart Cheddar.
- Dairy Free Cream Cheese. Luckily, there are many options on the market for dairy free cream cheese that comes very close in texture and flavor to regular dairy cream cheese. One of the biggest complaints about dairy free cream cheese is the sour taste or the texture can be a little grainy, so if you have a go-to dairy free cream cheese use that. Some of my personal favorites I like using are: Trader Joe's Vegan Cream Cheese; Tofutti; and Miyoko. I have heard great things about Philadelphia plant based cream cheese too, but have yet to try it. Be careful to avoid any flavored cream cheeses or cream cheeses that add vanilla to them or it will change the flavor of the dip.
- Dairy Free Sour Cream. Like cream cheese, dairy free sour cream has come a long way, with many options in the grocery store that taste and feel like the real deal. My favorite dairy free sour creams are: Better than Sour Cream by Tofutti; Forager; and Violife. I have heard Kite Hill is on the sweeter side, so I have not tried it in dips and recommend avoiding any sweeter flavored sour cream.
Dairy free products can be tricky to find in the grocery store, as I have found every store places them somewhere different and sometimes it can be somewhat hidden if you do not know where to look. If there is not a vegan or natural foods specific area in the grocery store that has refrigerated items, the dairy free products will likely be in the produce section or mixed with the regular dairy products. If you cannot find it, ask an employee for help.
