How many who eat cold cereal have replaced cow's milk with a dairy substitute?

They seem to be advertising these "milk alternatives" a lot. I am starting to use Vanilla Almond Milk in my cereal (just won't lighten coffee, however). How about you?

I drink almond milk occasionally but have not replaced cow's milk. It just doesn't taste as good.

I enjoy almond milk. Rice milk is too grainy for me. It's expensive, but they also make milk without lactose if you're like me and you're lactose intolerant. However, if you're just looking for a healthier option, almonds are a great source of protein and I really like the taste.

And before anyone asks "how do you milk an almond", how do you water a tap?

I still use cow milk in my cereal because I don't drink the milk. I ingest very little milk with my cereal so it's okay to use cow milk in my cereal. I do use soy milk for my coffee, however.

The vanilla flavored stuff has a ton of sugar in it! It's like a milkshake! I find myself unable to stop drinking it once I start, haha, yummm!

I've drank soy milk (unsweetened and sometimes homemade) for a really long time but I can't get used to pouring it over cereals. When I eat cereal with it, I eat/drink them separately.

I've used rice, soy, and coconut milk. Even though they're all tasty I always end up coming back to regular cow milk for my cereal.

I love vanilla soy milk on cereal, but don't really care for it to drink it or in cooking.

I'm really not a milk-lover. I don't like it, but can handle it in cereal or a little added to my coffee or super chocolatey milk. I do recognize the benefits of cow's milk (if there's no hormones and preferrably raw milk, but I've yet to get there) and can definitely mask the taste and consume it for the health benefits alone.

However, several years ago I did try Silk in the regular milk or vanilla flavor and some other flavor. It wasn't bad at all, but I would prefer using cow's milk because of its benefits. I can usually handle consuming anything (no matter the icky taste) as long as I know it has health benefits. I can choke down some wheatgrass and barley grass & herbal tonics as long as I'm thinking of their health benefits. Heck, I brushed my teeth with bar soap for months just because of the benefits. Lol.

I'm pretty sure the stuff I tried was soy milk and I've since read some harms caused by it, so I don't even drink it anymore, but the taste of one of the flavors was pretty lovely!

I think almond milk is healthy though & we've talked about wanting to try it. Almond butter too. My lovie has really been wanting to try that stuff. Have you had any of it?

So this stuff doesn't lighten coffee? I wouldn't much love that. I sometimes make extremely strong coffee that requires a drop of some kind of milk or creamer.

Almond milk, soy milk, rice milk, and coconut milk are all so tasty!

But yeah...I don't like them in coffee. Just doesn't taste as great.
