Here’s why:

  • Served cold, this recipe is perfect if you need a bland option that’s nutrient-dense and low in fiber.
  • Avocados have a neutral flavor. They’re also high in potassium and monounsaturated fats that are important for heart health.
  • If you’re lactose-intolerant, swap whole milk for almond milk. It’s a great alternative, with similar consistency and a light flavor. Make sure your almond milk is fortified with calcium and vitamin D.
  • Some lactose-intolerant patients can tolerate fermented foods such as yogurt and cheese.
  • You can adjust the sweetness by adding more or less honey.
