    I usually have Oat Milk, but ran out this morning. My cereal was 1/3 Oat Milk 2/3 Soy Milk. Not nice. It's funny how quick tastes change. I used to love Soy Milk.

    I like rice milk cause it tastes yummy, soya milk is ok - but I'm not so keen on the flavour. I dont like nut milks, to me they dont taste very nice.

    Also my digestion isnt all that great sometimes and so I go through times when I'm unintentionally sick a lot. I have been told rice milk is best for that, although to be honest some days I cant win with anything.
    The day breaks and everything is new.

    I've recently switched from soya to oat milk in tea to see if that helps with my PMS, as suggested in another thread. I like the taste of both. I like to drink rice milk on its own but its not so nice in tea.

    rice milk is rather nice in the yogi choco tea

    also finding that i'm going off soya milk..it seems a bit cloying after trying the rice milk..made almond milk once but that was mildly disasterous, ought to try again with different ratios and strain it maybe ..not tried/made oat milk yet.

    I used to not really drink soymilk, just used it on cereal, etc. But recently, I've been buying vanilla soymilk and find myself drinking it by the cupful because it's so good, especially some particular brands. I like Zensoy best. Almond milk comes in second. It seems like Silk is the most popular soymilk brand in the stores, but I don't think its taste is so special.
    I eat nutritional yeast by the spoonful.

    Ive recently switched to oat milk after having a vague idea that it might be easier on my digestive system than soya. I absolutely love the stuff.

    I drink it warm with malted slippery elm food and its become addictive (tastes i remember horlicks tasting about 20 years ago!).

    Ive never liked almond or rice milk though. Its all down to personal preference really, give em all a go!

    I saw Hemp Milk today. But at $5 for one litre, I had to leave it on the shelf. Too bad it's so expensive. I really would've liked to have tried it.
    Wow! That is expensive! The Hemp Milk I buy is imported from Canada, and it costs $2.99 per 12 oz. It's delicious!!! Well, let's be frank here, it's just plain sweet and I love it. It's a ton of sugar, but I don't mind... Besides, I make up for that by carrying around my Stevia powder with me everywhere I go.

    you can make it!!!

    soak almonds in water overnight..rinse them then blanche them in boiling water so you can slip off their skins..this will KILL your nails!!
    then whiz up the almonds and some water in the blender...put in a bit of sweet stuff (maple syrup, agave syrup or whatever)..whiz it all up some more, then strain off all the gritty bits..ta-dah! almond milk.
    compost the gritty bits, eat em or use them to exfoliate your face with..adapt the amounts of water and almonds to make the milk how you like it..

    I have always been a cereal in the morning person, from about 12 I went off cows milk as I was always getting headaches and sore throats. I used to have So Good back then.

    Later I tried Oat Milk by Pure Harvest, which was ok but a bit watery. Then I went gluten free so I have been having rice milk, I love it. I drink it on it's own, in tea/coffee or on cereal. I use Vitasoy's Rice Milk or Pure Harvest.

    I also love :


    It's imported here (Aust.) from Italy so it's not something I buy all the time as it's expensive, but the almond and vanilla versions are yummy.

    I am now in the process of going raw, so I am going to try making my own almond or other nut milk

    Also I am not a big fan of fake cheeses, I have tried Kingland (Aussie brand) and it was alright but never bought it again. I have had Cheezly a few times, but it's not something I have often.. and now going raw I probably won't have it again. I find it's a bit too fake and I like meals without it.

    I love Silk Soymilk. I also really like Eden Soy, which is manufactured three blocks from my house. I just like creamy drinks.

    I don't look to replace cow milk, but even before I went vegan, I used to enjoy soy milk (chilled by the cup in Asian restaurants), as I prefered soy milk to most beverages.

    It's all about oat milk and almond milk....but if I do have soya milk it is always unsweetened!

    I tried rice milk a few times and I really didn't like it!

    i really like almond milk on cereal, but soya milk seems to be easier to come by here in normal supermarkets. i prefer alpro out of all teh brands - and yes, i tried them all

    i like the unsweetened best, with a bit of vanilla extract in to drink, but they only sell it in the big sainsburys, not my sainsbury's local that i pop to en route from the station. i'm so lazy

    Edensoy has always been my favorite, but lately I've been buying Hemp milk because it has a ton of health benefits: lots of calcium, B12, protein. It doesn't taste nearly as good though.

    I've never heard that bout white wave. That seems like a rather outrageous sort of claim. It hardly seems substantiated.

    Now... with 8th continent... their "vitamin D" actually comes from lanolin, which is made from wool, and therefore not strictly vegan. I don't trust 8th Continent.

    What brand of almond milk does everyone drink? I had a trader joes brand almond milk once and I thought it was terrible. But I am willing to try again since so many people on this thread sing the praises of almond milk. I don't like gritty texture, though...

    They put it in chocolate oatly and fortified oatly too which sucks! Talk about alienating a core audience.

    I'm bummed about the carrageenan warning...I love the mocha and pumpkin spice flavors of Silk soy milk. I do try to limit my consumption to one serving per day because I don't want to overdose on soy.

    I never drank milk anyway because I thought it was nasty,
    but if I have something that calls for milk I'd use rice milk first, then soy.

    When I have the time to make it, I really like almond milk the best. Most recipes that I use for some reason always call for rice or soy though...I've found that almond works better then both (it also has a sweeter taste).

    Tried just about every brand of soy milk there is (in the US) and most were pretty nasty, until I found Westsoy Plain http://www.westsoy.biz/products/plus.php
    It doesn’t have that flour like taste most soy milks have. I can get it at my local market http://www.followyourheart.com/about.php
    Trader Joe’s and that evil grocery store Whole Foods carry it as well. Eden soy and Pacific are the only other drinkable ones I’ve found, but Westsoy is by far the best I’ve tasted.

    Silk is eeeeevile! I wouldn't support the dairy industry by buying this crap, even though their coffee creamers were pretty good, they are still owned by the biggest dairy suppliers in the world: DEAN foods, ick!
    Pacific makes other stuff with chickens, cows, secretions etc. so I wouldn’t support those prix either.

    I just realized this today when reading on another website! I had know idea that Dean owned Whitewave!

    Is that Westsoy brand that you suggested from a non-dairy supplying company?

    I was really shocked when I found White Wave on the Dean Foods site … they’re buying out the competition.

    As far as I know WestSoy is still safe.

    Wildwood is another good one

    Awesome products, and the only edible yogurt I’ve found (not just edible but damn tasty). Their creamers are great, very rich ... a once in a while food
    But I've never found their Soymilk, I'd like to try it.

    I generally prefer soya milk, and buy Alpro. Overall I really, really like nut milks, but they're really expensive and not very good for you in comparison.

    Default Which milk is best?

    I am trying to read over the forums some of these posts are so old I am not sure what is right. So anyways I want to make sure I am drinking a safe milk. Right now I am drinking 8th continent Light Soymilk which by the ingredients looks safe. I do like Silk Soymilk Fat free as well but couldnt find that when I was shopping.
    Thanks for helping out a new vegan on products

    It depends on exactly what you want. For cereal, I like the Rice Dream already suggested. For baking, I use whatever the recipe recommends. For smoothies and drinking, I like Almond Breeze. It's creamy and tasty.

    In tea I use a 50/50 mixture of soya milk ("Alpro" sweetened) and Rice Milk ("Rice Dream"). I just looove "Rice Dream", but it does tend to be a bit watery in tea. The soya milk gives it added 'creaminess'.

    A few months ago my local supermarket stocked "Rice Dream with Soya" which was ace. Unfortunately it disappeared from the shelves very rapidly and I have never seen it again.

    Sometimes I'll drink chocolate soy milk, but I hate that beany taste afterwards. better for cooking as (like someone said earlier) it's thicker than rice milk. I've never tried almond milk.
