Does that picture make your stomach grumble and mouth drool or do you cringe because you feel the pain on lactose intolerance? It should be the first one unless you are some weirdo with an aversion to ice cream! The ice cream is lactose free and I’ll even share the recipe: Lactose-free Butter Pecan Ice Cream Recipe.
One of the biggest misconceptions about being lactose intolerant is that you must avoid dairy. Dairy is still very important for those with lactose intolerance (LI) and there are key ways to make it part of the LI diet. February is Lactose Intolerance Awareness Month and the National Dairy Council has been spreading the word about ways those with lactose intolerance can incorporate their favorite dairy foods into their diets.
No doubt you know that dairy is part of a well-balanced and healthful diet. In fact, dairy foods have a unique source of several nutrients that help improve overall health from our bones to our hearts. You could say it does it’s dairy best to keep you healthy!
