For some, digesting dairy products can be difficult. For others, dairy-free fare is part of a lifestyle choice. Whatever your reason for following a dairy-free diet, there’s no need to miss out on milk and cookies, cereal and special desserts.
Check out the selection of dairy-free milk alternatives available at Vitacost.com:
Almond milk: When it comes to dairy-free drinks, almond milk is my personal favorite. Its subtle nutty taste and creamy texture make it the perfect partner for cereal – plus, it works well in some of my favorite recipes (like pumpkin pie!).
Coconut milk: With a rich, creamy consistency and smooth flavor, coconut milk is a must-have in smoothies, soups, sauces, curries and desserts. Have a craving for ice cream? Try this non-dairy recipe for Banana-Walnut Dessert, which features coconut milk.
Hemp milk: Refreshing, delicious and packed with essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals – can your milk make those claims? It can if it’s hemp milk, a non-dairy drink made from ground hemp seeds. Add it to coffee, use it in your favorite recipes or drink it straight from the glass!
Soy milk: Savor the benefits of soy – including protein and plant-derived isoflavones – in a creamy, non-dairy drink. Soy milk has the taste, texture and flavor you’ve been searching for. It goes great with cereal and cookies, too!
