Milk Substitutions 

Hey guys! Is one of the things holding you back from making the transition to being a vegan losing milk? A lot of people say that is! Luckily there are so many non dairy options that will fill your needs.

Rice Milk

This is a sweet option that is of similar consistency to 1% milk. It has a lot of low fat, vitamins, and antioxidants that can help protect people.

Almond Milk

This one is a popular choice for many different reasons. It is low in fat and calories with tons of vitamins. It tastes great in coffee and it is even flavored!

Oat Milk

Oat milk is also a fan favorite. It is high in iron and fiber. Oak milk can protect against certain sickness. It has a different texture which can be a little harder to get used to but the top-noch flavor.

Pea Milk

Pea milk is one of the milk that is very similar to regular milk. It is rich in texture and very smooth. Has no nutty flavor and makes a great substitution to make the switch from commercial cow milk to dairy-free milk. This is one of my favorites. 

Cashew Milk

Cashew milk is creamy and rich, high it natural healthy fats. If you are looking to create a good amount of foamed milk cashew milk will do that and stay, where other milks might collapse after a few minutes. Cashew milk is always something we have in our pantry.

Coconut Milk

Coconut milk is next level sweet with low calorie counts. The consistency is similar to cow milk so it's an easy transition. Coconut milk had a lot of B-12 and healthy fats that taste delicious!

Soy Milk

The most options you have are probably around soy milk. It is for sure more affordable than some other nut based milks and do the trick. To make a transition from cow milk to soy milk is a getting used to process and give it time and several tries to see what works for you at the beginning. We usually go for the vanilla flavored soy milk, even unsweetened version do exists. For example by the brand SILK.

Ripple Milk

Ripple milk is a plant-based milk made from yellow peas. It's much higher in protein than most other plant-based milks and provides a good amount of important nutrients, such as calcium, vitamin D and iron. It's similar to the pea milk and will give a smooth transition from cow-milk to dairy-free milk.

Hemp Milk

Our last milk is a little different. Hemp milk is a THC free milk choice that tends to have a lot of omega fatty acids and for people who tend to have allergies it's a safer choice. It is an earthy flavor so if the flavor is too intense it may be worth trying a different milk substitute option.
