Milk??

We are trying to clean up our diet and have decided to switch out most of our cow's milk.  We have tried almond, soy, coconut and rice milk...the only one we can all agree on is almond milk. So yesterday I stood in the milk section at the grocery store for like 10 minutes and could not figure out what the "best" option would be.  I do not want to make my own, so what is the next best thing?

Honestly no, but it does taste sort of grassy. My son loves the chocolate version, drinks a whole cup in 2 seconds flat lol

I prefer the Silk almond milk. I usually get 2 of the regular, and 1 of the vanilla UNsweetened.

ETA: the vanilla is usually for drinking, and the original I use for cooking and cereal.

No problem :) I personally cannot give up cows milk, nothing comes close, but we get organic or raw (when possible... since its illegal here). I have never been able to really enjoy any other kind of milk, hemp milk is good in a pinch for me but I cant drink anything but cows milk because nothing tastes like it lol

We use these and rice milk, good choices if it's your first time transitioning to something new.
