If you would like to try a truly dairy free version of this delicious cheese ball simply substitute the goat's milk products with dairy free options. I would suggest using 4 oz of dairy free cream cheese, 2 oz dairy free sour cream and a cup of shredded dairy free cheddar cheese such as Diaya Brand.
