I find almond works pretty good for cooking. Vita soy has an amazing mint chocolate milk!

We always have an unsweetened vanilla almond and an unsweetened coconut milk on hand. Coco milk is thinner so Fh likes it for cereal, I usually mix em up. I say get a few and test them out but definitely stick to the unsweetened!

@chocolatecoveredstrawberry:  I looooove rice milk! But I think Rice Dream is a little watery and I prefer the Kirkland Organic Rice Milk from Costco. Almond milk is good in cereal but I personally don’t like it as a milk replacer…it has a flavor. My neighbor keeps mentioning hemp milk and I keep meaning to try it but I always forget.

Rice is ok, almond is ok. to don’t like the texture of them, though. If your migraines are linked to hormones, it’d be a good idea to avoid soy, even though it’s the most milk-like replacement.

I am so in love with vanilla almond milk. I’ve had sweetened and unsweetened, I think both are tasty alternatives.

Almond is my favorite, and definitely do not do soy.

I LOOOOVE almond, both sweetened and unsweetened varieties, so this is my vote.

Coconut milk (not canned) is also pretty good. I like using it (as well as canned coconut milk) in baking when I know someone who has a nut allergy is going to be eating the food. It makes everything tastey. High-fat canned coconut milk has a layer of fatty cream, that when chilled can make a “whipped cream” of sorts. It’s a great healthy alternative to having wipped cream with desserts and fruit dips. 😀

I haven’t had it, but I have heard hemp milk is very nutritious for you, tastey, and it has a high percentage of calcium, omega and amino acids, and so much more. I plan to buy this next time I am at the supermarket.

However, try a few different brands of each type of milk. Some brands taste different for the same type of milk. I hate most brands of coconut milk but there is one that I sometimes get. I forget what it is called, but it is really good.

I like unsweetened vanilla almond milk for drinking and with cereal, but I prefer unsweetened coconut milk for smoothies because the flavor doesn’t stand out as much.

I like unsweetened almond milk, the plain kind, not vanilla. I got the vanilla by accident once and it’s just too sweet for me. I’ll drink it and use it for cereal but I haven’t tried to use it in cooking yet.

I quite like soy and rice milk. I haven’t tried almond but one of my friends raves about it so I’m keen to try it out
