DD has to be milk free for 6 weeks.
I know I shouldn't complain, it's not a serious allergy which I'm sure some of your LO's have.
Have you tried to cook with the milk alternatives?
I can manage the butter alternative and will try cakes, flapjacks and pastry etc.
I can manage lots of dishes without milk.
I still need to get calcium both in DD and in other family members as well so what can I do for lasagne white sauce etc?
Chicken supreme? Fish pie?
Or are these types of dishes just not worth it?
In recipe section, there are no recipes using the alternatives.

We have been using Oaty milk for a couple of years i find cooking with it really easy never get complaints from eldest charge friends and they are 11 year old boys.
We also cannot cook with egg use nuts you will find the six weeks fly by so very quickly indeed last night we made pan cakes with rice flour oaty and egg replacer taste the same as normal ones.
Have found that when we make up birds custard its more of a dull yellow rather than the bright one but still tastes the same

Alpro is fine, as long as you don't boil it. You may need to tweak some things a bit (eg it's fine in porridge, but you will need to cook it a bit longer than usual) but we make yorkshire puddings and waffles and not cross buns (cba with the crosses!) and all sorts just substituting Alpro wherever it says milk.

R3 which alpro do you use. There are so many available! I bought the junior one, fairly sweet and we did a taste test, she chose this over oatly.
I guess they have their place for different uses.
