Lactose-Free Mango Berry Smoothie Bowl #compromisefree

When you’re following a gluten-free, lactose-free, peanut-free, or other allergen-free diet, it can be hard to find products and ingredients that taste like you remember. Hubby and Kay both have food allergies, so I’m always looking for alternatives to make sure they don’t miss out. Just because you’re limited in what you can eat, you shouldn’t have to be limited in what you can enjoy too! Thankfully there are many more gluten-free, lactose-free, and peanut-free options out there than ever before, but how do you know which ones taste like the real thing?

This delicious Mango Berry Smoothie Bowl is made with President's Choice lactose-free yogurt so everyone can enjoy this rich, creamy, frosty treat!

One name I trust is President’s Choice, because they’re committed to helping Canadians find freedom in “-free” products so we don’t have to choose between health and flavour anymore.

President’s Choice carries a delicious selection of lactose-free dairy products that puts all those things you’ve been avoiding back within reach. Sure, non-dairy milks are one option, but you just can’t beat the taste of a rich and creamy smoothie made with yogurt. And now you can have it with lactose-free yogurt!

President's Choice lactose-free 2% M.F. yogurtMy kids went bonkers for that creamy, frosty smoothie taste made with PC’s lactose-free yogurt and frozen mango chunks, frozen blueberries, and frozen strawberries. They especially loved the pretty smoothie bowl presentation!

  • I do have a friend who is lactose-free so I always make sure our food is lactose-free when she visits, love the selection that Loblaws has.

  • it’s important to me to have access to tasty gluten-free, lactose-free, or peanut-free products because a famly member has allergies

  • Our family is full of allergies. My father is soy and lactose, BIL is wheat, SIL is nuts and niece is chocolate and re dye!! So we are always trying to prepare foods to suit each diet which is often hard!!

  • One of my sons was diagnosed as lactose intolerant years ago. He does use tablets sometimes so that he can enjoy a meal out without having to worry about what’s actually in the meal. It took a long time to discover what was his actual problem. I was amazed how many products we had to avoid since milk sugar was an additive.
    One of my daughter’s was lactose intolerant during her pregnancies. Another was diabetic during pregnancy.

It is important to me that, when they visit, I can offer them treats or a meal without running the risk of a flareup of their digestive tract. This is very important to me.

  • We are lucky in our family that there are no allergies but I am aware that it is important for others to have foods without gluten and peanuts

  • It’s important to have access to lactose-free products as some of my family members have a sensitivity to lactose. When we have family gatherings, including lactose-free products would ensure everyone has something they can eat and enjoy without worrying about feeling sick afterwards.

  • because we like to eat healthier in all meals no matter if we have allergies or not! Just the right thing to do!

  • It is important to me to have as little of nuts products in our home as i cannot digest nuts properly and some prodcts that have nuts in them gives me a sore stomach

  • A few of my siblings are gluten free and that makes a big difference. I need to learn to make or buy more delicious food that they can eat.

  • My grandson’s school has a peanut free policy due to students allergies, so we have to ensure his lunches and snacks adhere to the policy.

  • There’s allergies in the work place so you’ve got to be ridiculously careful. This gives me the chance to not only eat right, but not harm someone while doing so.

  • My son’s school has a peanut free policy so having access to snacks that adhere to the policy is very important.

  • I don’t have those particular allergies, but I have known people who do. I had other dietary restrictions for medical reasons, and sometimes it was challenging to find something to eat, particularly at a potluck or at certain restaurants! I try to bring something gluten-free to potlucks (and double-check my ingredients!) and also list what else it is free from, so those with certain allergies/intolerances can have more variety. 🙂

  • My daughter has severe allergies to fish and needs to wear an epi pen. We have had three scary hospital trips when it first came out in 2012 at the age of almost 7. We READ everything when purchasing something new. So it is important to use to have fish free products in our home and school as well as peanut free so she always has the option to bring those products to school.

  • I don’t know of any family members with these health issues, however all seem to be disconcertingly common of late.

  • A friend of mine growing up had a severe peanut allergy and one day at school, she had a reaction and almost died!!
    Luckily it just so happened that I was sick that day, so I wasnt there to see it, because even hearing about it afterwards was
    traumatizing! It left an impression that almost 30 years later is imprinted vividly in my mind!!

  • As of now I do not have to buy lactose, gluten free etc. products but at the same time I will buy them and eat as they are for me just as tasty and I buy what at the time saves me money when grocery shopping. I love making smoothies etc. and I love fruit each day. For those who do need these its great that they are available to them .

    come over.

Actually, preparing allergen free foods is just one part of the equation of meal prep as I also prepare certain foods to increase their nutrient value or remove phytic acid that interferes with mineral absorption. So, it is not just avoiding allergens that take up time but, also, how to prepare it in a way that is nutrient dense.

  • It’s important to me to have lactose-free foods because my son has a milk protein allergy and I am lactose-intolerant.

  • Even though my daughter is in high school we will abide by the general rules from primary school; no tree nuts, etc so this is a great takeaway breakfast option for both of us. Eating healthier definitely has a huge impact between the mind/body connection.

  • Semi lactose problems.I have a tendency to really swell up and feel ill sometimes.I tend to saty away from lactose.

  • Luckily my family has no food allergies but when not at home we try to be considerate of people that do because when I was in school I had I friend who nearly died due to peanuts!!
