Below are several guides to dairy substitutes with DIY ideas, recipes, products, and more. They include full details on how to substitute butter, cheese, all types of cream, milk, yogurt, and dairy used for baking (like sweetened condensed milk).
I’ve also included a chocolate guide, but chocolate isn’t truly a dairy-based food. It’s naturally dairy free, but many brands have dairy added and people often assume that chocolate is dairy. So I decided to include it in this dairy substitute section.
Much of the following information is excerpted from my flagship book, Go Dairy Free: The Guide and Cookbook. But the book has even more current tips, tricks, ideas, and recipes for substituting practically every type of dairy.
