If you’ve gone dairy-free – whether it’s because of allergies, intolerance, or ethics – there are probably many foods you miss eating. Cheese? Obviously. Ice cream? Duh. Thankfully, these products now have satisfying vegan counterparts that are just as delicious as the originals you know and love. In addition to dairy-free vegan substitutes, there are also a whole slew of foods that you might expect to contain dairy that are actually free from it! Here are 12 dairy-free foods you can pick up at the grocery store and enjoy without hives or stomach discomfort.
Elmhurst Chocolate Oat Milk
Most of us are well aware of all the vegan-friendly nut milks on the market today (see here for the best non-dairy milks for every use) but one of the latest offerings to hit the market is this decadent oat-based chocolate milk with 20 grams of whole grains per serving. It’s even better than the dairy chocolate milk you remember drinking as a child.
The 70%, 85% and 90% dark chocolate bars from Lindt are all non-dairy, with no milk added. Many other dark chocolate varieties are dairy-free as well, just make sure to read your labels!

Classic graham crackers are typically dairy-free (though many brands contain honey, so be sure to check the label if looking for a vegan option!). Since extra-dark chocolate and marshmallows are also non-dairy foods, you know what that means: S’mores are also a dairy-free delicacy!
