But what if you’re both on a keto diet and lactose-intolerant? 

This is where things get tricky, or so you’d think.

Surprisingly, there are a ton of keto dishes that are also free of eggs, milk, and any form of dairy! 

With this expansive list of dairy-free keto meals, you’ll realize the lifestyle is not at all restrictive.

We have 25 amazing recipes to cover, so there’s no time to waste. Let’s go!

1. Keto Green Bean Casserole

This healthy casserole still has everything you love about the classic Thanksgiving side dish.

From the crunchy green beans to the caramelized onions to the rich and creamy sauce, it’s just too good. 

The only difference is the use of a low-carb mushroom cream sauce instead of the usual dairy-based dressing. This easy swap makes all the difference.

2. Keto Spinach Artichoke Dip

If you’re looking for a certified hit, you can always count on spinach artichoke dip. There’s no denying that it’s super addictive. 

And thanks to this simple recipe, even non-dairy eaters will get to enjoy the typically cheese-filled treat. 

The secret? Cashew cheese!

I’m happy to announce that it works wonderfully! This queso dip with ground beef is ridiculously rich and addictive. 

Thank God for cashews, almond milk, and nutritional yeast!

4. Paleo Chicken Broccoli Rice Casserole

This meaty and hearty casserole isn’t only keto-friendly and dairy-free, but also paleo and Whole30 compliant.

I know that intro made this dish sound like it’s a snooze fest, but it’s quite the opposite.

It’s loaded with tender and juicy chicken, broccoli rice, coconut milk, and an array of herbs, spices, and seasonings. This casserole is a party in your mouth.

5. Dairy-Free Pizza Chicken Bake

If you think carb-free and dairy-free pizza isn’t tasty, think again. This pizza chicken bake might just be your newest favorite.

Sure, it has none of the traditional pizza makings we all know and love. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be delicious.

A combination of chicken, pizza sauce, and vegan mozzarella, this dish is guaranteed to impress.

6. Keto Creamy Chicken Cauliflower Rice Casserole

I was skeptical about cauliflower rice at first, but it exceeded all my expectations.

I mean sure, the taste is nothing spectacular, but it works fantastic as a rice replacement.

And when you combine it with chicken, mushrooms, kale, and a creamy sauce – my goodness.

This casserole is so good, people might actually think they’re eating real rice.

7. Keto Teriyaki Chicken

To me, teriyaki chicken is one of Japan’s greatest culinary gifts to mankind.

There’s just something about the sweet glaze coating the succulent meat that makes me feel so giddy inside.

It’s usually served on a bed of rice, but as you may have guessed, you’ll serve it over finely chopped cauliflower florets instead.

Despite this swap, this chicken teriyaki is still a winner. That’s a testament to how good it is!

8. Paleo Zucchini Lasagna

I’ve said it before and I’ll never stop saying it again and again: lasagna is the best pasta dish known to man.

It’s hardly keto-friendly and dairy-free though, and that’s where this recipe comes in.

It has layers of zucchini noodles, cashew and almond cheese sauce, and turkey sausage marinara.

This lasagna might not be authentic but it’s just as tasty.

9. Zuppa Toscana

A classic Zuppa Toscana is a soup packed with sausage, bacon, potatoes, and a cream-based broth. 

Simply swap the cream for coconut milk, and voila, you’ll get a delectable bowl of dairy-free and keto-friendly Zuppa Toscana. 

Personally, I think this little switcheroo makes the classic dish even more delicious!

10. Whole30 Taco Soup

Taco soup is typically loaded with cheese and tortilla chips. While this keto and dairy-free version isn’t, it still definitely hits the mark.

Loaded with perfectly seasoned ground beef, veggies, and topped with cilantro, avocado slices, and tomatoes, this soup is still super-rich, creamy, and hearty. 

It’s a lot more wholesome, but without sacrificing any flavor.

11. Loaded Cauliflower Soup

This article doesn’t joke around when it says this cauliflower is loaded!

Look forward to a thick and creamy cauliflower soup base, vegetables, bacon, sour cream, and green onions on top.

Also, this scrumptious appetizer is filling enough to be served as an entree.    

12. Keto Beef Enchiladas

You’ll want to load up on keto flour tortilla once you’ve had a bite of these beef enchiladas. This Tex-Mex dish is wildly good.

These enchiladas are filled with perfectly seasoned ground beef, delectable enchilada sauce, green chiles, and dairy-free cheese.

Then, they’re topped with more sauce and cheese!

They’re so good, you won’t want to share.

13. Keto & Whole30 Taco Bake

One look at this Insta-worthy taco bake, and you know it will be gone in minutes.

While the toppings definitely give it oomph, I want to highlight the goodness of the ground beef.

It’s seasoned with cumin, garlic powder, cayenne, and paprika. Then it’s mixed with tomato sauce, onions, garlic, and bell pepper.

14. Lemon Garlic Salmon

Here’s something for all you seafood lovers, out there! 

I can’t think of a better pairing to salmon than lemon and garlic. These three are just the perfect combination.

The fish is pan-fried to a medium-rare, giving you that wonderful mix of flaky on the outside, and tender and fatty on the inside.

15. Shrimp Fried Cauliflower Rice

If you’re not fooled by the illusion of cauliflower rice, I’ll bet this stir-fry will change your mind.

In this dish, cauliflower rice is tossed with carrots, scallions, ginger, garlic, coconut aminos, and fried battered shrimp.

Trust me, with this combination, the pulsed florets will look and taste exactly like regular rice.

16. Paleo Beef Stroganoff

Who doesn’t love a  hearty bowl of beef stroganoff? Rich, creamy, and hearty, it’s everything we all love in comfort food.

And because of veggie noodles, even keto-dieters can indulge in this lip-smacking dish!

Swap out the cream for coconut milk and it becomes lactose-intolerant friendly, too.

17. Beef Tips and Gravy Over Cauliflower Mash

Cauliflower doesn’t only make a good rice alternative, but an awesome potato replacement, too!

Simply puree the florets and mix them with coconut milk and seasonings for a delicious faux-mashed potato.

Top it with tender beef tips and mouthwatering gravy and dinner is served.

18. Stir-Fry Ground Beef and Broccoli

Broccoli and ground beef join forces to create a flavorsome stir-fry! 

It’s a basic combination, but the spices and seasonings give it such a sensational flavor.

Serve this over cauliflower rice for a hearty and satisfying meal.

19. Mexican Shredded Beef

Beef pot roast is marinated in a spice mix, sauteed in ghee, and cooked in the Instant Pot.

It’s also mixed with orange juice, lime juice, green chiles, tomatoes, and spices. This beef is melt-in-your-mouth tender.

It might look simple, but believe me, the flavors in this beef are to die for! 

It’s so heavenly, you’ll want to incorporate it in tacos, burritos, burrito bowls, and every other savory dish you can think of.

20. Keto Fish and Chips

In the mood for something British? You can’t go wrong with fish and chips! 

To make it keto-friendly, use almond flour to coat the fish. Instead of potatoes, make jicama fries instead.

Serve it with a creamy tartar sauce and crunchy coleslaw on the side for a light yet satisfying meal.

21. Paleo Fish Piccata

If you like chicken piccata, I’m sure you’ll also enjoy the seafood version.

Battered and pan-fried fish fillet is cooked in a light and creamy lemon sauce and studded with tart and briny capers. 

It’s a lighter version of the classic Italian recipe, perfect for when you’ve had enough indulgent dishes.

22. Creamy Tuscan Chicken

The presentation of this dish alone already garners a perfect score. 

This creamy Tuscan chicken is a simple yet spectacular one-skillet meal made with juicy chicken thighs bathed in a creamy sauce.

Spinach and sun-dried tomatoes give it more flavor and textures.

Together, they create an irresistible dish that just happens to be keto-friendly, dairy-free, and Whole30 compliant.

23. Whole30 Keto Spicy Chicken Tenders

Spice up your life with these fiery chicken tenders! 

Seasoned with a blend of hot sauce, chili powder, cayenne, and paprika, this dish definitely packs a punch. Make it only if you can handle the heat.

24. Whole30 Keto Lime Cilantro Chicken Thighs

I was once an avid hater of cilantro because I couldn’t stand its soapy taste. 

Thankfully, I learned that when added in small doses, it’s actually a delight. This recipe for lime cilantro chicken thighs is proof.

This dish is tender, juicy, and bursting with savory, earthy, and zesty flavors!

25. Sheet Pan Ranch Veggies

Roasted veggies are already delicious as they are, but this recipe takes them to a whole new level with ranch seasoning!

A mix of red potatoes, carrots, yellow bell peppers, and broccoli, this dish is colorful and flavorful, to say the least.

It’s also such a breeze to make. Once you’ve sliced up all the veggies, everything else comes easy.
