There are some delicious dairy-free alternatives that you can whip up in your blender! When making this recipe, you can substitute 1 cup of plants such as oat, rice, hemp, coconut, almond, cashew, etc. You may find yourself doing a little happy dance down your health food store aisle because many stores now carry non-dairy options. We like easy and we like convenience, yet there’s nothing more empowering than making your own yummy creation from scratch.
