Rice Milk can be a good alternative to cows milk but the downside is that it's high in calories and carbohydrates and low in protein. It's also difficult to find in an unsweetened version. However, it the least allergenic of all other options so it's a good choice for those with severe sensitivities.
Goats Milk is similar tasting to cow's milk except that it is a little more tangy. Since it has less lactose and more protein and fat than cows milk it is easier to digest.
Almond milk is also a good alternative to milk.
Benefits of Almond Milk is that it is a great source of unsaturated fat, protein, flavonoids, potassium, calcium, vitamin E and magnesium and has less sugar than soy milk.
(since almond milk is made from nuts don't use this product if you have a nut allergy)
Soy Milk is a great alternative to milk for anyone who is lactose intolerant or has an allergy to milk.
Benefits of soy milk is that the soy milk is plant based and is high in protein and fiber and has minimal saturated fat. It also is rich in cancer-fighting isoflavones.
Soy Milk is relatively easy to find but choose nonfat or unsweetened varieties since regular soy milk tends to be high is sugar especially the flavored varieties.
For anyone suffering from soy and/or nut allergies Hemp Milk can be a good alternative.
Hemp milk is low in saturated fats, rich in those healthy omega fatty acids, and a great source of protein.
Hemp Milk is cholesterol free as well as being lactose free.
As far as taste goes it is creamier and nuttier than soy milk or rice milk and also is thicker than other plant based milks.
Downside is Hemp Milk lacks calcium and isn't as readily available as goats milk, rice milk or soy milk,
Very interesting. I never knew all the benefits of these different milks.
These are good choices and many of them have more calcium. My favorite is almond milk.
