Plant-Based Milk Comparison 

Hi, 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 dairy-free options that will fill your needs.

Take note of each plant-based milk and what flavor and consistency it offers. That way you will also understand if it is good for making cappuccino foam....

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.

Rice milk has a mild taste and is usually naturally sweet in flavour. Because of its minimal ingredients, rice milk has a watery consistency.

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. Pea milk gets mixed reviews when it comes to its taste. Some people love it, some people say it tastes bitter and some people think it's much more similar to natural dairy milk than some of the other non-dairy options out there. 

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 has a creamy, sweet flavor like cow's milk and other non-dairy milks. Of the popular nut milks, almond milk and cashew milk tend to be the closest in flavor to cashew milk. Unsweetened cashew milk has a mild flavor and a slightly rounder mouthfeel than almond milk.

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! A sweet, floral, nutty flavor of coconut.

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 .Eliminating the aftertaste in soy milk poses the biggest challenge. Soy has undesirable sour, bitter and astringent characteristics.

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 above taste wise.

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 + nutty flavor so if the flavor is too intense it may be worth trying a different milk substitute option. 

Macadamia Milk

Benefit of consuming macadamia milk is the omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids the nut contains. Macadamia nuts are rich in monounsaturated fats with the lowest carb content, and are also high in vitamin B1, magnesium, and manganese. Macadamia Milk is pleasantly thick and smooth, with a real taste that isn't just sugar or sweetness. Like almond milk, the keyword here is "balance," but its stronger, almost fruity flavor is just enough to make it worth trying alone.

Hazelnut Milk

Packed with B vitamins, essential to mental health, antioxidant-rich vitamin E, folic acid, which helps produce red blood cells and transport oxygen through your body (preventing anemia, heart disease, even cancer), and omega-3 fatty acids that can keep your blood pressure in check.  We found it to be very much like regular milk, perhaps even just a bit richer. The flavor was very much hazelnut-forward with a hint of sweetness (cane sugar is added to this brand's product). Drinking it, we found it to be smooth and satisfying.

Don’t let milk hold you back. There are many milk substitute options that are safe and delicious.
