Here are some fun facts and good substitutions for cow’s milk:

Cow’s milk is designed to grow a baby calf into a 1500 lb. cow.  Stop drinking it or you will become a 1500 lb. person!

Soy milk is the most popular non-dairy milk; comes in lots of different flavors (original, vanilla, chocolate).  For baking, use unsweetened plain soy milk, but if you are making desserts use regular plain.

When trying to figure out which brand to buy, buy the one with the least amount of ingredients (make sure it is not a GMO—genetically modified soybean).

Soy creamer is a good substitute for half and half in your coffee.

Oat milk bakes very well, tastes great on cereals, and cooks perfectly.

Nut milks, which include almond and hazelnut, are much thinner than oat and soy and do not bake well, but are good chilled with cereal or in tea.

Rice milk does not have a lot of protein and has a lot of sugar but is low in calories.

Hemp milk is good because it has high omega 3 content.
