- •ricesuper thin. probably best for like cereal and oats.
- •oatvery sweet naturally. good for cereal and baking.
- •hemptastes earthy but has a nice texture. fine for baking and cooking. the taste might be a little strong for coffee or cereal.
- •almondgreat for cooking and baking. fairly versatile. vanilla and sweetened versions are great for coffee and cereal, but unsweetened will do just fine. i don't love almond milk. it has a slightly grainy texture and it's quite thick. definitely would not drink it plain.
- •coconutthe full fat kind that comes in a can is great for replacing cream cooking and baking. you can even make a good whipped cream with it. the boxed kind has a good taste and smooth texture. it's good for cereal and coffee if you like the taste of coconut. i would drink the boxed kind plain.
- •soyvery neutral flavor. smooth and creamy without being too thick. an all around Good Milk. good for baking, cooking, and cereal. perfect for coffee. i'd drink a small glass of it if someone put it in front of me but i wouldn't go out of my way to drink it plain.
- •flaxmy favorite. so fresh and smooth. apparently it tastes a lot like dairy milk?? good for coffee, baking, and cooking. perfect for cereal. i'd drink a glass of it plain.
