DAIRY FREE HAMPERS FOR DAMN COOL PEOPLE.
Gift your favourite lactose intolerant friends and family with the best Australia has to offer when it comes to dairy-free food. From gourmet nut milks to delicious dairy-free chocolate, they can still discover the incredible small-batch producers of our country.
Being lactose intolerant or discovering a lactose intolerance later in life can be a very annoying revelation, especially if you’re a bit of a foodie and don’t want to give up your milk products. Buying food and gifts for people with lactose intolerance then can also become tricky but there are some fantastic products out there without any lactose which still taste great. Thankfully at Pretty Green, we have plenty of delicious options to choose from to create the perfect lactose intolerant hamper without skimping on any quality.
Lactose is the type of sugar which is found in dairy products like cheese, creams and milk. If you have a lactose intolerance that means you lack the enzymes which break down that sugar causing digestive problems. If you have lactose intolerance a change of diet is essential since your body cannot digest certain foods properly which can be detrimental to your health.
It is also possible to develop lactose intolerance later in life which can be an unwelcome surprise. It doesn’t have to change your habits drastically though! There are plenty of other options available to you or your lactose intolerant friends, and we have some delicious lactose intolerant hamper options that can make the switch easier.
You will need to be checking labels and monitoring what ingredients you buy and what you eat. If you’re buying products for someone with lactose intolerance, you may be finding it a bit exhausting checking so many labels! That’s why you should leave the worry to us, and choose from some of our lactose-free products to create the perfect lactose intolerant hamper. Even if you find the perfect hamper but it has a product containing lactose, then we can easily swap it out for one of our many lactose-free options.
One amazing lactose-free product which is an amazing product we have to add to your lactose-intolerant hamper is nut butter. In our sugar-free, paleo, vegan, organic, wholesome food mania, Australian Made nut butters have been spurting out left right and centre. While peanut butter is usually a safe option if you’re lactose-free, some versions might contain lactose which will cause you some discomfort (depending on your level of sensitivity). Making sure you choose the right products can help you avoid any kind of digestive woes. And the best thing about nut butters is how versatile they can be! Throw some in your smoothies, your desserts or even have some with fruit and veg or on toast.
Chocolate is often one of the most missed products if your diet has to leave behind milk products (unsurprisingly). It’s often so hard to get some of the good stuff without having to find a specialty shop as most mainstream supermarkets stock the usual milk chocolate. Stuffing a lactose intolerant hamper full of some delicious vegan chocolate will make any lactose intolerant person super grateful. A lot of people think they have to give up their guilty pleasures when eating dairy-free, but these delectable treats show that you definitely do not.
Another potential problem with being lactose intolerant is that you risk becoming deficient in calcium and vitamin D. Be sure then to check out some of our products that are good sources of calcium, like a delicious package of nuts to go with some unique Australian wines. Luckily, most alcohols don’t contain lactose! We have an incredible selection of wines and, in Australia, we do wine very well. Some phenomenal gins too, all with distinct and unique flavours and crafty beers. We have plenty of bottles to share for any occasion. A perfect date night idea in!
At Pretty Green, we offer a large, yet select, selection of local delicacies made with soul and presented with style. All of which will make a delicious inclusion to lactose-intolerant hamper, especially as the recipient may be feeling a bit bored with the usual items! Whether you’re including craft gins, artisan wines, organic chocolates, raw honeys, native botanical teas, or dairy-free chocolate… we choose only the finest quality, handcrafted, small-batch products, from smaller suppliers across Australia.
