Dairy-Free Dishes for Summer Events

A picnic table with a plate of nachos made with WayFare Dairy Free Sour Cream.

Summer is heating up! Cool, creamy WayFare products are perfect for dairy free dishes for warm weather barbecues and get-togethers.

WayFare’s light dairy free products taste great and avoid the digestive challenges and health risks caused by cow's milk. Did you know that a high percentage of the world’s population experiences lactose intolerance? Removing dairy from your diet can help you feel great inside out. And, thanks to WayFare, living without dairy doesn’t have to mean living without the creamy foods you know and love. If you're trying to go without dairy, it can feel tricky during a time of year full of picnics, backyard barbecues, and parties with loved ones. No worries on your end; we have some great ideas for perfect warm-weather dishes that are free of dairy.

Dairy Free Meals

Veggie and Tofu Shish-Kebobs are great for the grill in the summer. Choose a variety of vegetables—like bell peppers, red onions, par-boiled Yukon potatoes, and zucchini—and alternate them on your skewers. You can even include super-firm tofu or thick Portobella mushrooms on your skewers. Try minced garlic, ginger, soy sauce or tamari, and sesame oil for a flavorful marinade. For a Mexican-inspired twist, slide your shish-kebob onto a tortilla layered with WayFare Dairy Free Sour Cream and WayFare Dairy Free Nacho Cheddar with Jalapenos.

Perfect Finger Sandwiches please everyone. First, choose whole-grain loaves or rolls and spread on one of your favorite WayFare’s cream cheeses, dips, or cheeses. Then layer on cucumbers, tomatoes, avocados, and any other veggies that you love.

Bagels and Cream Cheese are always a hit, and there's nearly no prep involved! Slice the bagels and set them out on a platter. Pair them with WayFare Dairy Free Cream Cheeses (Original or Onion & Chive). Add a platter of toppings like cucumbers, red onions, tomatoes, and capers for an easy, crowd-pleasing dish.

Dairy Free Side Dishes

Bruschetta can be a delicious summer meal or side. Slice a whole grain baguette and spread on our WayFare Dairy Free Salted Whipped Butter. Bake the slices at 350 degrees until lightly browned. While still warm, layer the slices with WayFare Dairy Free Cheddar, diced tomatoes, chopped fresh basil. Delightful!

Nachos please the toughest critics! Heat up our rich WayFare Dairy Free Nacho Cheddar on the stove, then pour on top of your favorite tortilla chips in a flat pan or dish. Add some black beans, olives, chopped tomatoes, marinated hot peppers, scallions, and veggie chili over the top, and voilà!

Chips and Crudité are so easy with our creamy dips! Choose Ranch, French Onion, or both!

Corn on the Cob brushed with our palm oil-free butter is even better sprinkled with fresh pepper and chili powder. A squeeze of fresh lime juice adds an extra, fabulous flavor, too.

Dairy Free Desserts

Cream Cheese Stuffed Dates are astoundingly delicious! Slit the dates lengthwise, pull out the pit, then fill them with WayFare Dairy Free Original Cream Cheese. Bake at 375 degrees for 18 minutes and get ready for the compliments to roll in!

Pudding Delight is a cool, tasty treat for summer. Dish WayFare Dairy Free Chocolate Pudding into cups or a pie dish, mix some crumbled chocolate sandwich cookies into it, and sprinkle the top with more cookie crumbles. Garnish with gelatin-free gummy worms for extra fun!
