    What's the best milk substitute?

    I prefer organic almond milk (specifically, Pacific Natural Foods brand), which you can buy in original or vanilla flavors. It's good in cereal and for cooking, which is the only way I use a milk substitute. (In addition to being lactose intolerant, I never liked the taste of actual milk, even as a small child.)

    I also don't like the taste of soy milk and, unless you are careful to buy only organic soy foods, you run the risk of consuming soy contaminated with hexene. 

    I no longer use rice milk since reading the news report warning that rice leaches inorganic arsenic (the dangerous type) from the soil.

    Buying food these days is like traversing a minefield, isn't it? So far, I've read nothing negative about almonds or almond milk, but I still buy the organic type just to play it safe.

    I think almond milk is the best, especially over regular milk. It's naturally made and can be made in your kitchen.

    I get the unsweetened coconut milk by SO Delicious. It's not sweet at all and tastes the closest to cow milk which I miss.

    I love almond milk. It's easy to make, too. Just boil some water and soak a handful of almonds overnight. In the morning blend with your favorite fruit for a healthful and delicious smoothie.

    I grew up never wanting to drink milk. When I was in middle school I tried soy milk and I didn't really like it, but I preferred that over cow milk. In high school I tried almond milk and I love it. Out of all the milk I would drink almond would be on top
