Four tasty, dairy free recipes to try this week

Over 40% of Irish women have already switched from cow’s milk to plant-based alternatives, and it’s easy to see why. Not only can innocent dairy free drinks be added to our favourite teas, coffees and cereal; they can also be used in any recipe as a substitute for dairy (with the added bonus of a delicious, nutty flavour).

The new range of innocent almond, hazelnut and oat drinks are free from additives, stabilisers and funny business. What’s more, they’re low in saturated fats and are a source of vitamin E. With that in mind, we’ve found four tasty recipes in which you can enjoy innocent’s dairy free goodness.
