Lactose free Iced Mocha RecipeMy entire life, I’ve been a milk-lover.  Cereal, milk and PB&Js, milk and cookies, warm milk before bed – and now I am loving iced mochas! But ever since I became pregnant with Lucy, my body does not respond well to lactose, an enzyme in milk.  I am not 100% lactose intolerant – I can still handle Greek yogurt (thankfully!).

But mochas and milk and cookies I simply cannot handle.  I recently participated in a compensated educational campaign with The Motherhood and Lactaid. I learned that the lactose in dairy is what caused my bad reactions. Lactaid is not a milk replacement – it is milk! But one thing Lactaid has – that means I can finally make my own mochas again! – is a tasteless enzyme that breaks down the lactose in the milk.

I am thrilled to share with you my own recipe for homemade iced mochas! Delicious, refreshing, and perfect for lactose-sensitive people like me.

The Food Network’s Melissa d’Arabian was on the Today Show and shared a lactose free Creamy Mushroom Sauce recipe. Click that link and check out her video – it looks amazing!

      Oh it will DEFINITELY work with regular milk 🙂 Lactaid – being regular milk with an added tasteless enzyme – tastes exactly like regular milk. So just use your favorite kind of milk and enjoy 🙂

    That does look good. Just in the past few years I have started not tolerating milk products very well…. wonder what causes it to develop during your adult years like that?

    Gotta try this! I love coffee but don’t make iced coffee drinks for myself. My daughter has lactose issues and I know she loves iced coffees so will have to try this recipe.
