Many can’t digest dairy products properly and have to deal with a lot of discomfort when they do eat dairy. To prevent this discomfort, use non dairy products in your smoothie recipes, such as this Non dairy strawberry smoothie. This recipe substitutes soy milk for dairy milk and will not create any difficulties for those who can not digest dairy.
Just so you know, this condition is known as “lactose intolerance” which occurs when the small intestine can’t produce sufficient quantities of the lactase enzyme which helps the body absorb dairy foods.
But enough of the science, this non dairy strawberry smoothie is delicious whether you are lactose intolerant or not.
