The best tasting non milk to me is Flax milk. It's hard to find in my area because the stores couldn't sell enough of it. The pedrictionas my kids over the years told me don't give my kids soy products so I never bought any to try.

My DH decided he was lactose intolerant, (not doctor diagnosed), so he started buying Lactaid milk, and every other substitute out there. No Thank You! The milk is fine, but I won't drink the almond, soy, vanilla, or what ever else he brings home. Yuk! I do wonder though how I go through my cheese and dairy products so fast! I just cannot adjust to the taste of all his stuff. I like to leave well enough alone!

I don't like Oat Milk, but I regularly drink almond milk, both commercial and homemade. I do still love animal milk cheeses, but I eat them very rarely. I also like Kite Hill, almond milk cheese and yogurt products.

Couldn’t get past the color. Doesn’t look very appetizing to me.

I tried all kinds of plant based milks for coffee creamer and finally went back to half & half. I do use the plant milks for tea and cereal. Not a big milk drinker as a beverage.

I've only tried vanilla almond milk. It's OK but l wasn't all that impressed. I switched to Fairlife milk.

Oat milk is great, I pretty much eat a plant based diet. It's easy to make from steel cut oats. It can be used as a coffee creamer, in pancakes, mashed potatoes and anything else you put milk in. I am not a big milk drinker, never was so I don't drink a big glass of it with my breakfast.

Retired Dairy Farmer here ........
Yes, as you can imagine only Real Milk and its dairy products for me!

Howeverrrrrr .... please please please, do not call these faux products Milk
Mammals produce milk .... cows, goats, sheep, etc. and yes, that includes humans.
Almonds, oats, soy etc. are not mammals.
Therefore, these are not milk, but beverages, drinks, etc.

Stepping down off my soapbox now ....
Sorry but am too proud of my dairy heritage to let these others impersonate!

I am a recently retired dairy farmer and have drank milk every day for the last 68 years! Oh I so agree, QuiltE; your definition of milk is spot on. My particular grief is why is milk sold by fat percentage and not by its fat free designation; ie whole milk is 96.5% fat free, 2% is 98% fat free. And look there's only a 1.5% fat difference in the two! My little soap box.

And yes there are folks out there allergic to lactose (the natural sugar in milk) and how unfortunate it is that they miss out on all the wonderful vitamins and minerals found in milk as it is a very nutrient dense food.

In regards to the Vitamin D issue. Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin (as is Vitamin A); in other words only carried in fat. If you take the fat out, you also take out the Vitamin D!

How would you distinguish between coconut milk and coconut water? They're both beverages.
