We were very excited to work with
Lactofree on another campaign this
time to create a rather indulgent smoothie using their new chocolate flavour
dairy drink and whatever else took our fancy!

It’s great that having these
little challenges gets the boys and I to be a bit more imaginative in the
kitchen. You can see how we got on last
time with our perfect
toastie post (I could quite easily eat those every day!).
I love championing a brand that
gives people the same choices as everyone else. If your lactose intolerant it must be hard seeing your friends
and family enjoying a wider choice of meals, snacks and drinks but thankfully
that’s all changing with Arla’s pioneering lactose-free dairy range.
It was very simple to make our smoothie using two cups
full of Lactofree Chocolate Dairy Milk (RRP £1.39), a banana and a handful of
ice cubes. The boys enjoyed being
involved and throwing the ingredients into the blender. Afterwards we decorated with cream
(lactofree have a lactose-free equivalent so fear not!) and sprinkles not that
they needed the additional motivation to drink it; they both really enjoyed
sipping on their creations. I think
they would have been just as happy to drink the Lactofree Chocolate Milk
straight from the carton!!!

Next time I think we might
experiment with cherries (the fruit my youngest likes the most!) as I think
that’s another fruit that would compliment the Lactofree Chocolate Dairy Milk
very well, then perhaps some cream like before but with a cherry on top for
decoration! But whatever fruit you
decide to incorporate it’s a wonderful way to encourage children to get closer
to their five a day whilst still enjoying the chocolaty taste.
It’s quite clever how Lactofree have managed to find a
way to keep the great taste of milk but make it suitable for those who are lactose
intolerant. They very cleverly filter
out half of the lactose (the sugars in milk) then add an enzyme so our bodies
can cope with the remaining lactose.
Other than that it’s the milk everyone else enjoys!
