Special Diet Notes & Options: Yogurt Custard Trifle
By ingredients, this recipe is dairy-free / non-dairy, peanut-free, soy-free, and vegetarian. Just be sure to choose your cookies wisely! If you confuse eggs for dairy, you’re not alone. See this post: Are Eggs Dairy?
For a gluten-free and dairy-free yogurt custard trifle we recommend Enjoy Life Cookies or Lucy’s Cookies, though there are many other brands on the market. Mi-del offers options that are “just dairy-free” and ones that are also gluten-free (check the ingredients; a few Mi-del cookie varieties do contain dairy).
