If you’re looking to eat a more plant-based diet, one of the easiest switches to make is to add a plant-based dairy milk alternative to your cart. Follow this breakdown of plant-based options to help you find the right one for you!

Almond Milk

High in calcium and Vitamin E but low in calories, almond milk is a popular option that’s great in cereal, smoothies, or anything that you want to lend a little sweetness to since almonds have a naturally sweet flavor.

Cashew Milk

A recently trending option, cashew milk is creamy and rich in protein. Use it in savory recipes since it doesn’t really have a naturally sweet taste. Pro tip: it’s great for making dairy-free macaroni and cheese!

Coconut Milk

Super rich and creamy, coconut milk is packed with healthy fats that makes it great for soups, curries, and casseroles. Coconut does have a stronger, sweeter flavor though, so be aware of that before adding it in place of dairy milk.

Hemp Milk

Surprisingly creamy and full of calcium, hemp milk has a slightly nutty flavor that makes it perfect for savory dishes and smoothies. It is a little thin though, so it’s not ideal for thick soups or curries.

Oat Milk

Naturally sweet and free of saturated fat, oat milk is naturally sweet, contains about 5 grams of protein per serving, and has a good dose of fiber. This trendy milk is great for coffee, smoothies, and cereal.

Soy Milk

The OG plant-based milk, soy milk has a comparable thickness and creaminess to cow’s milk. Because of this similarly and its relatively neutral flavor, it’s great in coffee and in baked goods. Plus, it has about 5-7 grams of protein per serving.
