Looking at all those delicious treats in just about any restaurant can be rather disappointing for those with lactose intolerance as most are prepared using milk. However, this is not the end of the world as there is a plethora of dairy free products available in the market that cater to you. The best part is that they taste as close to the real thing as it can get.

1. Sorbet

This tasty dessert has its roots in France and is considered an equivalent of British water ice. It is quite simply frozen sugar syrup which is flavoured with various fruit juices or wine. Sorbets are hence a great alternative for those with lactose intolerance and you can find several brands at your local supermarket.
