Like rice milk, oat milk is slightly sweet. It’s on the thin side, so it’s not great for coffee unless you like your coffee a bit dark. For cereal and for cooking, though, this is a great alternative. You can even make your own oat milk at home, if you like!
Thick and creamy, hemp milk holds up really well in coffee and cooking.
It can have a mild hemp aftertaste, but it’s something you get used to, much like soy milk’s aftertaste. Hemp milk can vary quite a bit from brand to brand. I’ve had friends tell me they can’t stand the stuff while others swear by it. If your first taste of hemp milk doesn’t do it for you, you might look into trying a different brand before giving up.
For cooking and baking, plain old canned coconut milk is a delicious soy-free dairy alternative. My favorite use for coconut milk is in the ice cream maker.
If you’re looking to lighten your coffee or pour something onto cereal, brands like So Delicious make boxed coconut milk that you can use just like regular milk.
Do you have a favorite non-dairy, soy-free milk that you purchase or make at home? Share away in the comments!
