Dip Into These Sweet Lactose-Free Sauces

We've tried a lot of new recipes this year to bring excitement into our food lives, while the rest of our lives felt largely on hold. Complicated cakes, sourdough breads, all the fermented things and cookies galore. The list goes on and on and on. But these two recipes amongst all of the contenders were truly standouts - in simplicity, taste, decadence and visual appeal.

Dip Into These Sweet Lactose-Free Sauces

They're both versatile recipes, begging to be scooped with fruit pieces or pretzels. Or whatever sweet or salty treat you're eating. But these are truly made for churros - fried pastry dough coated with a touch of cinnamon sugar.

The Chocolatey Cream Cheese Dip is just delightful - the right amount of rich, creamy dairy taste and cocoa to go with. The Caramel Dipping Sauce is equally divine and even more versatile- we use this one as a dipping sauce but also as an ice cream topping or final layer over a cake. And maybe even to eat by the spoonful, when nobody is looking.

So sweeten up your food life with these two new treats!

Caramel Dipping Sauce

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup Green Valley Creamery Lactose-Free Sour Cream
  • 2 tablespoons Green Valley Creamery Lactose-Free Lightly Salted Butter
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Add the sugar to a sauce pan and heat over medium heat, shaking gently if needed to help it melt and caramelize evenly (do not stir).
  2. Once it turns a nice medium-dark amber, remove it from the heat and carefully add the sour cream (it will foam), stirring with a wooden spoon.
  3. Stir in the remaining ingredients, and serve warm or at room temperature with churros. Also excellent drizzled over cakes or ice cream.
