    Hi there. We have these same allergies in our home too. Once you learn to substitute a few ingredients life will become much easier. We use rice milk in our house instead of dairy milk and there is no difference in anything as far as baking and cooking goes. It does not do very well for custards and puddings but all in all it works for almost everything else. We also use pure corn oil that way there is no chance for blends or other things to be slipped in in other types of oils. This also works in every use you can think up. The biggest adjustment most have to make is to read labels very carefully. You will find milk and its derivatives in nearly everything. It also goes under many names like whey, caesin etc. All these can cause reactions too, so be careful. We have swithched to everything being homemade because the other options were so few they were not worth it. Hope this helps.

    Our biggest challenge when going dairy free was a decent tasting white sauce that could be used as a base for gravies, soups, and casseroles. I experimented with every kind of milk substitute I could find: goat, rice, almond, soy, coconut, etc. all tasted too strongly of their own flavor ….What finally worked was a combo. Heres what I do–makes a white sauce that no one can tell has no milk-Using your favorite white sauce recipe amounts: butter or oil, flour, and for the milk part use equal parts of three different milk substitutes. My favorite together are goat, almond and coconut. Then salt and pepper to taste. I also like to add a little creamy potato/leek soup to the mix (can’t remember the brand-but it comes in a box) when I can find a box of it…adds a nice creamyness, but isn’t always easy to find.

    my kids have the milk and peanut among other allergies. I highly recommend the superallergy girl cookbook:

    we substitute soy milk (silk brand seems to taste the best but needs refrdigeration – other brands can be unrefridgerated until they are opened) for drinking. we usually use rice milk for baking. there’s also almond milk, and other alternatives in the health foods store.

    we use rice milk and tofu for cheese alternatives, but you have to watch out for whey, casein, and cows milk because sometimes these contain a little bit of that.

    We use almond butter instead of peanut butter. it tastes very similar but is double the price and found in the healthfood section.

    i’ve found alot of good recipies for milk free in cookbooks designed for feeding autistic and adhd kids. the recipies are usually also gluten free though, which is good in my case since my kids also have trouble with wheat.

    alternative milks tend not to solidify well in custards or puddings. but we use goat and sheep milk for that. my kids are fine with sheep and goat but not cow. but goat and sheep milk is very similar to cow, so that may or may not be an option for you.

    try my son is allergic to all milk and tomato products. this website even has a substitute for marinara sauce that has NO tomatos. Also, if you find that you like rice milk, you can make it at home fairly easily. I just looked it up on a search engine and found several methods.

    Try The recipe database has over 1200 recipes. The Suppport Forums are the best! They also have a free enewsletter that is sent out twice a month. Loads of resources. Membership is $25 per year but they offer sponsored memberships if you can not afford the cost. This website was a lifesaver when my son was diagnosed with severe food allergies. The support is amazing!

    Is he allergic to all nuts or just peanuts? If other nuts are ok, try almond or cashew butters. We buy raw almonds in bulk and make our own almond butter. I roast and salt them lightly. I like it better than peanut butter.
    We don’t drink milk in our house and don’t use it alot, so probably am not much help there.

    Sunbutter is a great substitute for peanut butter too!

    We dealt with allergies to milk, eggs, peanuts, and some tree nuts for years until recently, and I also loved the Kids With Food Allergies website mentioned above. Their chocolate crazy cake is wonderful – moist, tasty, and super easy to make with ingredients you probably have on hand. They even have recipes for pudding that will work with rice milk (the jello brand won’t work with that subsitution, but these recipes include a lot of cornstarch to help it set up).

    I didn’t like many of the milk substitutes, especially not the non-dairy cheese. My son drank rice milk and still prefers it. When I made mac & cheese for the other kids, I set his macaroni aside and put some olive oil and ham on it. I bought safe bread for everyone so we didn’t have to keep that apart.

    FAAN (Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network) has pages that list all of the ingredients you need to avoid with a milk allergy, and I found that to be a big help too.

    It was an adjustment at first, but we quickly got used to the changes and I found that I could make LOTS of things – I think my recipe list was well over 100 and included any category you could think of (from appetizers to desserts).

    Our son is 25 and was born with a milk allergy and I have found through the years that a good soy milk can be used in place of cows milk in just about anything you make. Sometimes you have to bake it a little longer or use a little less soy milk then cows milk. I use both ready made soy milk and I use a powdered soy milk which you can mix to your taste. Haven’t made fresh soy milk yet, but I am going to try that one of these days. As for the peanut butter allergy soy butter is a great substitute.
