When food sensitivities prompt us to try milk alternatives, it is necessary to do your research. Below we share just a few snippets about the four most popular milk alternatives.  You may also want to look into try cashew milk, rice milk, flax seed milk and pea milk.

Three Reasons You Should Stop Drinking Dairy Today

  • Cows are pumped with antibiotics and growth hormones. These antibiotics disrupt your gut health and weaken our immune systems.
  • Approximately 60% of all adults cannot digest milk and nearly 75% of the population is lactose intolerant. These allergies may harm both the digestive system and the immune system.
  • Hormones in milk such as IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor) may increase the risk of prostate, colon and breast cancer.

  1. I stopped drinking dairy milk in 2012. I just can’t handle drinking it with my IBS! The last time I had it, I ended up in the ER. Now, I love Coconut milk, great taste and works well for cereal and a lot of recipes.

    1. I love coconut milk! I also just started drinking flaxseed milk and I really like it too.

  2. We love coconut milk products, but have also discovered pea protein milk made my Ripple Foods. It’s really great!

  3. I’ve been wanting to cut out dairy for awhile, even though I love it! I’m not a huge fan of the alternatives I have to say but I can tolerate coconut milk!

    1. My husband wasn’t either, and he loves cashew milk. Might be one you can tolerate 🙂

  4. These milk alternatives are great food for thought. While others start their day with a cup of coffee, I open my fridge and reach for a container of low-fat milk. I purchase organic milk without the hormones. My sister-in-law loves almond milk, and it has a fantastic taste! I try to stay away from as much soy as I can, but it’s hard to do as soy is in so many products. When my friend was diagnosed with cancer two years ago I went with her to a specialist. He highly recommended that she stay away from anything with soy because it’s like spraying Miracle Grow on cancer cells.

    1. Denay you are spot on; soy is so tough to avoid. I am a label reader, and it is crazy how many products they sneak it in.

  5. I love almond milk and I’ve tried all the others – except hemp milk! Think I’ll give that a try next 🙂

    1. Chocolate almond milk is my all-time favorite. I get a sweet treat that’s actually healthy for me:)

  6. My daughter may be having a reaction to all the dairy I eat while nursing, so looks like I might have to give this no moo thing a serious try, its going to be tough but your reasons as to why I should drink it sure do help!

    1. I went through the same thing with our daughter and I used soy milk. Not sure if I would go the same route today knowing what I do about soy but I am sure you can find a Non-GMO brand.

  7. i make a hemp coconut blend that works perfectly for me. it’s high in protein and healthy fats with a creamy consistency and it tastes awesome!

    1. I will have to try hemp milk with coconut might like it better. Thanks for the suggestion

  8. Over the years, I’ve limited the amount of dairy I consume. Instead, I like mixing together almond milk and coconut milk.

    Posted on June 16, 2017 at 3:55 pm
    1. That’s a super idea to mix kinds of milk.

      Posted on June 17, 2017 at 1:25 pm
  9. I drink almond milk daily and my husband drinks soy milk. I have also had rice milk, which was too thin for me. I have yet to try oat milk, and I can’t remember if I like hemp milk. I have been vegan for 18 years, so it’s been awhile since I have had all the alternatives.

    1. I have not tried oat milk either. I like rice milk with my oatmeal makes it taste a little sweeter. I personally am not a huge fan of hemp milk
