Almond milk vs. Soy Milk vs. Rice Milk... Please discuss.

Vanilla vs. Plain?

Lately, I've been on an almond milk kick, but haven't tried the others... Dairy kills my belly.

I substituted vanilla soy milk when a recipe called for milk. My DH is lactose intolerance and we were out of Lactaid. The recipe turned out great.

Cant handle the soy milk but I do use the almond milk. I like the chocolate for a yummy snack and I bake cakes and all sort of things with the vanilla almond milk. Its great

I LOVE Almond milk as well, I do like Rice milk and I do like Coconut milk....I do use a TEENY bit of soy milk in my morning coffee as I find it is closer in taste to Reg milk and the above I don't care for in my coffee....

I also try to get Organic when I can.... :)

Usually Unsweetened Vanilla or Unsweetened Reg

Almond milk, rice has too much sugar and Dr. said no soy, due to my thyroid condition, apparently thyroid meds and soy don't mix.

I'm all about the almond milk right now. I tried it a few times, liked it, then when I realized there were 40-60 calorie versions I was hooked. I used to eat a lot of cereal, so it made huge difference to the amount I could eat.

I've tried rice milk, it was alright, and certain soy milks are okay. But I think almond milk has the least calories.

I really like the SO Delicious ones......I can't tell the difference between Almond and Coconut milk.

Taste wise I prefer Silk, but soy is a no no for my thyroid.

Definitely almond milk for cereal or for drinking. And I prefer unsweetened.
But for smoothies I do soy.

Unsweetened vanilla almond milk has the lowest amount of calories (40 in a cup!) and is my personal favorite. I drank rice dream for a long time (love it) but when I am watching my weight I stick to Almond Breeze. Soy milk tastes okay, however, too much soy is dangerous for anyone (especially women) as it increases estrogen levels. Good luck!

since soy causes your body to produce estrogen, too much of it can be harmful for your hormone balance. so i drink almond almost exclusively (plus i think it's SO much better). the original silk kind is already naturally sweet, so it's better to avoid the sugar and drink that.
