    My son can't have dairy. I have to set aside a lot of recipes because he can't have cheese, sour cream or yogurt. Plus those products add flavor-he especially loves cheese.

    Are there ways to sub the cheese?
    How about yogurt?
    Or sour cream?

    This could be either in use as a topping, or to use in the whole mix of the recipe.
    (My son can't have soy, either.
    It seems like an impossibility, but I thought I'd ask anyway. I've been surprised to hear what people come up with.
    Thanks

    In the Hors d'Oeuvre section of http://paleofood.com/ there are a couple of non-dairy cheese recipes that are based on coconut milk and used mashed carrots to give an orange color. I have never tried them myself, but you could give them a shot and see how they work.

    Coconut milk can also be subbed for yogurt or sour cream in some recipes, depending on the use. If a thick product is called for drain off the extra liquid and use only the thick coconut "cream". Coconut milk can also be chilled and shaken to a froth to sub for whipped cream.

    In the health food store I shop at they have rice cheeses. Again I have never tried them myself so I cannot vouch for their flavor, but they have several different cheeses.

    Here is a link to a place where you can buy rice cheese slices. It looks like they have a few different flavors to select from.

    Thank you SO much! My son has seriously been missing cheese, plus many recipes he'd like if ONLY I had a way to put on cheese! I've never heard of cheese using rice before!--(only the soy kind, which he can't have).

    I'll show the cheese item to my local Whole Foods, just in case it's something they'd consider adding... I may be ordering the rice cheese to try it.

    I appreciate the recipe link, too. I'll have to give that a try & see how it works. This is really TeRRific--thank you.

    You're welcome! Hopefully your son will find a cheese that he likes and you can add some variety to his diet with it.

    Sorry about the multiple repeated posts earlier, I'm not quite sure what happened and I don't see a way to delete them.

    Rice cheese has casein in it and my grandson reacts worse to it than to cow's milk cheese.
    He really likes Superfantastic Vegan Cashew Cheese (Slices, Sauce or Dip). We use gelatin to set it and use it as a sauce and sliced. He goes through a double batch every couple of weeks. He's sensitive to lemon, and nightshades so I replace the pimentos with baby carrots and cider vinegar at 1/4 strength for the lemon.
    I had great success with replacement ideas looking for vegan alternatives. There is a terrific book called The Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook that has tons of recipes. The same writer has written several good vegan cookbooks. My library has several of them.
    For sour cream and cream there's a delicious looking recipe using ground cashews, I haven't tried yet.
    Nutritional yeast (it's inactive so is safe for people with candida) is the backbone of vegan cheeses. It's very nutritious in addition to adding cheesy flavour. I add it to my cracker recipe and all of the recipes I used to use cheese in.
    You can sour any kind of milk with vinegar or lemon to make buttermilk to replace yoghurt in recipes, my favourite is homemade almond milk for this.
    I made yoghurt from raw mature coconuts and my grandson loved it. It was labour intensive but I would definately have continued making it because the grated coconut was great for recipes as well but it turns out he can't have coconut either.

    It looks like I'll have to break down & get this book. I was hesitant because I thought the recipes would be of things he couldn't have. I didn't realize nutritional yeast would be fine to have.

    Thanks.

    Good News!

    I made my hamburger zucchini casserole and used 1 cup of the vegan cheese sauce with the meat instead of the two cups of cheese I usually use. I was very impressed with the flavour and texture and will definately use this substitution always for the entire family.

    Can he have goat or sheep cheese? I too am not able to have cow, but don't seem to have problems with the goat or sheep cheeses. Goat a bit strong for a child but some of the sheep similar to cow cheese. This might be an option to try. Robin

    I'd love to try that kind of cheese, but it has casein in it, which he can't have.

    I tried the " Cashew Sour Cream - Non-Dairy Sour Cream Alternative/Substitute"
    and it worked out very well in both baking and hearthy dishes. I subbed 1:1 for the real thing. Take care to treat it like you would real cream: f.e. I dumped a dollop into very hot soup, thinking it wouldn't curdle, but to my surprise it did! icon_lol.gif

    There is now a commercial yogurt made entirely from coconut milk, and it is yummy! I forget the brand name, but your local health food store might have it. Here are a couple of my favorite subs:

    Vegan Mozzarella Cheese

    No-Cheese Spread

    No-Cheese Cheeze Sauce/Dip

    Haven't tried this one, but it looks good:

    Basic Vegan Cream Cheese Spread

    Also, the nice people over at the Vegetarian/Vegan Forum would have some great suggestions. Good luck!

    I found it - So Delicious Coconut Milk Yogurt

    I bought a strawberry yogurt at the health food store today ~ haven't tried it yet. But I also found Coconut Milk Ice Cream ~ best ice cream I've had ~ beats Rice Dream by a mile! And on top of that, they're gluten-free.

    UPDATE: I'm eating the yogurt as I type this. It's pretty good ~ won't eat it often because of the cost but it will be nice for an occasional treat. I'm off to another health food store today to see if they have the coconut milk in quarts that I saw on the website. That would be awesome!
