don't miss dairy

I'm a lady who loves cheese, sour cream, & ice cream, but I recently became lactose intolerant. My key focus in recreating dairy recipes is taste, but I try to be as health conscious as possible. Some of my recipes are low lactose rather than dairy free. I'm also a writer, teacher, nanny, dog mom, housewife, native Yinzer, current Californian, and social organizer extraordinaire.

Coconut Key Lime Pie Ice Cream

I am so ready for summer.

Is it me, or has summer been a long time coming? 

All I can think about now is sunbathing, vacation, fruity cocktails, and… 

ICE CREAM.

I know you are thinking about it too, now that I’ve flaunted this delicious looking treat in your face. What screams summer-time ice cream flavor better than key lime pie? I scream, you scream, we all scream for key lime pie ice cream! 

I know that’s so cheesy, and yet not, because it’s completely dairy-free!

It’s vegan and gluten-free as well, with only four ingredients. Who’d have thought that something so delicious could be so darn simple. 

If you are vegan or lactose intolerant and do not have an electric ice cream maker, I highly recommend getting one. It’s not very expensive and it’s so worth it to make your own dairy-free ice cream. Store-bought dairy-free ice cream is great, but it’s pricey. Mostly because it’s only sold in small containers. It also usually contains unnecessary thickeners and fillers–yuck. 

Making it at home is convenient, easy, and healthy. The hardest part for me is storing the bowl in my teeny tiny little freezer, but I make room for it. Why? Because it’s such a treat to make my own dairy-free ice cream!

Seriously, it’s the best thing ever. Happy summer!

Guinness Float with Dairy-Free Coffee Ice Cream

Guinness Float with Dairy-Free Coffee Ice Cream from dontmissdairy.com
Want to know something really cool? My brother Patrick came to visit me on St. Patrick’s Day weekend. Wahoo!

California isn’t the best place to celebrate being Irish in America. I’d say it was Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It’s the funnest place ever to drink green beer and go crazy. And on St. Patrick’s Day, everyone is a little Irish.

But I’m so glad my brother came to California this weekend so I could try out this Guinness ice cream float! I needed someone to taste test, and Eric is not a beer drinker. This is definitely a recipe for the person who loves bold flavors. Strong coffee plus dark beer equals intense dessert.

I know you are all going to hate me for this…but….it’s about 80 degrees here. Don’t be too jealous. It’s pretty awesome.

As I’m typing, there’s a kid’s pool party happening across the street. People are wearing sandals and shorts. We are soaking up this sun like it’s our job! Even sandals go away for the cold season in Silicon Valley, and though we can’t really tell if it’s summer or spring, we are happy to put them back on!

I’m happy to have this sunny warm weather because it means my little bro will fall in love with CA and will come to visit me again.

Also, warm weather means ice cream!

My ice cream maker sat on the shelf so long it had a nice layer of dust on it. It was time for some spring cleaning and ice cream making. 

An ice cream maker is necessary to make my dairy-free coconut coffee ice cream, but you could still enjoy a dairy-free Guinness Float this St. Patrick’s Day by substituting some store bought vanilla ice cream like SO Delicious Coconut Frozen Dessert Vanilla Bean. 

What’s that you say? You don’t like Guinness?! It’s okay. Put your coffee ice cream in a cup of coffee or some cola instead! Drink with a green straw. Or enjoy with one of those cute little shamrock cookies from Eat’n’Park. My brother brought them to me all the way from Pittsburgh, but you can order them online! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
