When it comes to classic appetizers, creamy dips are, without a doubt, a tried and true favorite. However, if you have trouble with lactose, like so many of us do, classics like onion dip and spinach artichoke dip are off the table — or have been, until now.

You can say goodbye to the days of giving up rich, decadent dips. You don’t have to resort to dips made with plant-based alternative products like soy, almond, or coconut milk, either. Green Valley Creamery makes a full line of high-quality lactose-free products that allow you to celebrate all the joys of dairy, luxe creamy dips included. Like this warm and gooey spinach artichoke dip.

Lactose-Free Doesn’t Equal Dairy-Free

Plant-based alternatives are a great choice if you can’t eat dairy for dietary reasons or if you have an allergy, but they hardly compare to the real deal. If you’ve written it off because you’re sensitive to lactose and it gives you digestive troubles, you might want to go lactose-free instead. Green Valley Creamery’s lactose-free products are just like the regular dairy products you love because they’re made from real milk and cream. The difference is they also contain lactase enzyme, which is the enzyme that those with lactose intolerance don’t produce enough of naturally for digestion.

If you know you’re lactose intolerant and that eating certain foods causes you pain, you don’t have to give them up completely. Green Valley Creamery makes a full line of delicious lactose-free products, including yogurt, kefir, cream cheese, sour cream, cottage cheese, and butter. Each is made with high-quality ingredients, and the ingredient list is kept short and clean, which results in great-tasting products that are a whole lot easier to digest. That allows you to enjoy all the deliciously rich goodness of dairy without the discomfort — including your favorite dips.

The Warm and Gooey Dip That’s Hardly a Sacrifice

When you’re craving a creamy dip (which, let’s be honest, is most of the time), look to this warm and gooey spinach artichoke dip. It’s completely lactose-free thanks to Green Valley Creamery’s rich cream cheese and tangy sour cream. It’s garlicky, cheesy (thanks to plenty of Parmesan, which is naturally lactose-free), and of course, it’s loaded with chopped spinach and artichokes. Serve it with tortilla chips, crackers, or baguette slices, and you’ll find before you know it, you’ll be whipping up a second batch.
