Reducing or replacing conventional cow’s milk with non-dairy alternatives is all the rage right now. Packed with nutrients and void of digestive-disrupting lactose, they have a much longer shelf life and are available in convenient non-refrigerated boxes.
1) SOY MILK
The most widely available option on this list, soy milk is free of cholesterol, contains little to no saturated fats and about the same amount of protein as cow’s milk. It’s excellent in baked goods and for making dairy-free “cheesy” sauces, as it remains stable at higher temperatures.
Use this muffin tin to create delicious, nutritious portable snacks. Swap regular milk for vanilla flavoured soy milk for something a little different.
2) ALMOND MILK
Almond milk is great for those trying to reduce their calorie and sugar intake as it contains significantly lower amounts of that bad-for-you stuff. Creamy and high in vitamin E, it’s lovely by the glass and in coffee beverages.
Pour atop coffee prepared in this stovetop espresso maker for added flavour.
3) RICE MILK
Rice milk is thin in consistency and has a slightly sweet flavour. Great in smoothies and over cereal, it’s the non-dairy milk least likely to affect the allergy prone. On the flipside, though, its higher in sugar and calories.

4) HEMP MILK
The key benefit of hemp milk is that it provides a hefty dose of omega-3 fats. Each serving contains an entire day’s recommended intake; super for keeping blood pressure and cholesterol under control. It’s thick, nutty in flavour and regularly recommended by Dr. Oz.
