There has been a rise in nondairy milk options available. Learn more about four types below: soy, almond, pea, and cashew.

No moo, no problem: nondairy alternatives easily replace milk

The “Got Milk?” campaign that began in the 1990s may portray cow’s milk as king, but the truth is, there are tons of non-dairy options worth stocking the fridge with. Milk is considered an essential part of a balanced diet: it is a good source of protein, calcium, and it is often fortified with vitamin D. Not only is it nutritious, but it is also a staple in most households: in coffee, cereal, smoothies, and more. However, there are many milk alternatives for students who opt for a plant-based diet, or who are lactose intolerant, so they don’t have to miss out on their morning bowl of Cap’n Crunch. 

It is worth noting that most plant-derived milks do not provide calcium unless are fortified, so check the labels to ensure they have added the bone-strengthening mineral for optimum nutrition. Whether someone is lactose intolerant, vegan, or just adventurous, there are tons of plant-derived milk options to replace dairy milk for every occasion. Below is a breakdown of four types of nondairy milk to try out.

Soy milk
Almond milk
Pea milk
Cashew milk
