You can get dry soy milk, or some powdered baby formula.

You can use powdered Ensure or Coffee Mate. And if you are baking, you can substitute almond meal for the dairy.

I looked for an online milk substitute that was not soy based and came up with Vances Foods "DariFree"

found at http://www.vancesfoods.com/. I have been happy with it, especially since I had not had any luck find anything locally. You can check this out and see if it is something you might be interested in.

The coffee-mate types things I have looked at all have dairy in some form. Have you found one that doesn't?

Vance's DariFree is the best. Been using it for all my non-dairy milk needs. Im lucky, my wife even invented a non-dairy ice cream from it. We found it at a local health food store, but you can also buy online at stores like Miss Robens or direct from the company.

I use almond meal to sub for powdered milk. It's non-dairy, and adds the protein that the powdered milk provides. So far it's worked quite well. I'd use Vance's, but it contains corn and that's a no no for me.

I find that is very sweet and not at all good in savory dishes. Fine for sweets though. I have recently ordered a rice milk powder online but haven't tried it yet.

Julie, please let us know if the rice milk powder is good. I agree with you. The DariFree is good for baking and hiding in smoothies, but I usually thicken chicken stock or beef stock for the savory dishes.

I am not hopeful. I read some reviews on (Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned) and people are saying it's really sweet too. Like you, I use broth, or sometimes plain rice milk that is not a powder.

What about coconut milk powder? I suppose coconut flour might work, but here's a link to one coconut milk powder I know of.

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
