If you are looking for a nutritious option to fill you up and provide a good source of protein, cowโ€™s milk or soy milk are the best choices. If you are lactose intolerant or vegan, choosing the plant-based product is the way to go: almond, coconut or soy, or a lactose-free cowโ€™s milk. For a low calorie option, unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk can give you what youโ€™re looking for. Adding any of these options into smoothies, oatmeal or baked goods are tasty choices. Coconut milk is delicious in stews, soups and sauces (hint: think coconut curries!). The cost can also have an impact on your decision as plant-based milk alternatives or lactose-free milk tend to be higher in price.

Depending on your requirements and needs for milk or milk alternatives, you can incorporate a variety of these products into your diet.
