Okay, I searched the forum. (hopefully thoroughly enough) And didn't come across a poll/topic about individual milk preferences. So Ive comprised a list of the different vegan friendly milks I know of. Please chime in if I'm leaving one out.
Arguably the most popular milk alternative, it has almost as much protein as regular milk with far less fat and no cholestorol. To make things even easier, soy milk can be found in most grocery stores at a fairly cheap price. Made from the soy bean, this tasty Chinese non-dairy milk can be bought in plain, vanilla and chocolate flavors.
Rice milk is the equivalent of the dairy skim milk. It's consistency is thinner than soy and regular milk, and has a lower protein content. Rice milk is predominately used in the baking of desserts, mostly due to its naturally sweet flavor. However, you can buy rice milk as a beverage in plain, vanilla and chocolate flavors as well.
Besides beans and rice, nuts are also a predominant base for non-dairy milks and creams. This alternative has a creamy texture, and is best used in smoothies and desserts. Almond milk, dates back to the 1300s and can be made easily at your home by blending almonds, water and sweeteners such as vanilla or chocolate. Commercial almond milk comes in natural, vanilla and chocolate flavors.
This is the most distinctive tasting milk. Coconut milk is harvested directly from the "meat" of a coconut. Coconut milk can easily be homemade. Upon preparation, grate the coconut meat, squeeze through cheesecloth and soak. Vegans can use coconut milk in tropical dishes and drinks to add thickness and flavor.
Also called oat milk, this vegan friendly milk can be made from grain, flour, oats, barley, rye or wheat. Grain milk has a lower protein content that its dairy counterpart, but has a higher carbohydrate concentration. It appears in desserts, over cereal and in Vegan smoothies.
Is high in protein like soy milk, but hemp does not contain the phytic acid and trypsin inhibitors that soy does. Hemp milk is a good source of balanced omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, unlike rice milk, and it also contains a wide range of naturally occuring vitamins and minerals, including vitamin E, folic acid, iron, niacin, magnesium, phosphorus, thiamin and zinc
Personally I am a fan of rice milk for drinking, although I've never tried Grain or Hemp. And soy for baking and cooking.
