Valentine’s Day treats for the lactose intolerant

Heart-shaped cucumber sandwiches

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) Valentine’s Day often means yummy treats that are fun to eat, but if you’re lactose intolerant, those treats are sometimes limited.

February is Lactose Intolerance Awareness Month, and United Dairy Industry of Michigan is getting the word out that people who are lactose intolerant can still enjoy delicious dairy foods.

Lactose intolerance is the inability to completely absorb the lactose in milk. It’s different from an allergy, so people who are lactose intolerant can still enjoy dairy products like yogurt and hard cheeses.

Here are some Valentine’s Day treat ideas that are lactose intolerant-friendly. You can find these and other recipes on the Milk Means More website.
