5 Vegan Milks You Have To Try
According to Peta Latino you have to try this!!!
1. Soy Milk
Soy milk is arguably the most popular and easiest to find nondairy milk on the market. Made from soybeans, it has just as much protein as dairy milk and is a great source of calcium and vitamin D. Since a lot of grocery-store chains make their own store-brand versions now, soy milk can be easy on your wallet! Recommended brand: Silk.
2. Almond Milk
Almond milk is made from—you guessed it—almonds! This nondairy milk has a tasty nutty flavor, and it’s great for vegans with soy allergies since it’s soy-free. Almonds are a great source of protein, fiber, vitamin E, and calcium, so you really can’t go wrong with this one. You can easily make your own almond milk at home, too. How convenient is that?! Recommended brand: Almond Breeze.
3. Coconut Milk
Coconut milk is made from the water found in the “meat” of a coconut. If you don’t like the taste of coconut, you may not be into coconut milk, but if you’re a fan, you’re in for a treat. It’s also a great source of calcium, vitamin B12, and vitamin D. Recommended brand: So Delicious.
4. Rice Milk
Rice milk is a grain milk that’s made from rice. Since it’s sweeter than soy and almond milk, we like to use it for baking. Like almond milk, rice milk is also soy-free, and it’s nut-free, making it handy if you have a tree-nut allergy. When fortified, this milk can be a great way to get your calcium, vitamin B12, and vitamin D. Recommended brand: Rice Dream.
5. Hemp Milk
Hemp milk is made from hemp seeds and has a nutty taste that’s similar to almond milk. This milk is a great source of protein, and it’s also rich in all 10 essential amino acids, including omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Like rice milk, hemp milk is great if you have a soy or tree-nut allergy. Recommended brand: Tempt.
Now that you know what some of your options are, get out there and try them. There’s no reason why, as a vegan, you should be missing out on enjoying a glass of milk or a bowl of cereal. You can have all these nondairy milks and many more while still being kind to cows.
