‘While many people think they’re intolerant to dairy, the uncomfortable symptoms that occur after eating dairy are often caused by lactose, the natural sugar found in milk. Lactose intolerance is the inability to digest lactose, which can begin from birth or develop at any age. ‘
Cows milk causes more severe symptoms than a lactose intolerance, lactose intolerance does not involve the immune system, so while it can cause discomfort, it won’t produce a dangerous reaction. Lactose intolerance usually occurs between 30 minutes and two hours after consuming dairy. You can assess yourself on the Lactofree website with this handy tool here, it has really helped identifying the problem and being able to enjoy cheese and milk again. The latest product I have been trying is Lactofree chocolate milk which I made a chocolate peanut butter milkshake with and just had to share it with you guys.
1 & 1/2 Cup of Lactofree chocolate milk
1 Tablespoon of flaxseed powder
2 Tablespoons of peanut butter
1/2 Tablespoon of honey
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla flavouring
1 Ripe banana
Blend all the ingredients together….and voila! Easy peasy and tastes absolutely divine, if you like sweet treats in the morning then this is a great kick starter for the day especially Monday’s!
If you wanted to try Lactofree chocolate milk for yourself then its available for £1.39 at Tesco and promises a creamy, sweet treat ensuring you don’t miss out on taste!
