Once upon a time, if you had a dairy allergy or simply wanted to opt for a different option and change up your latte routine, soy was your only choice. Now, it seems that every few years a new alternative milk is added to the non-dairy aisle and shorty thereafter, people start adding it to their coffee. With more options than ever, it can be intimidating to figure out which one you’ll like best. Each option has a different flavor, consistency, and goes best with different kinds of drinks. To help you navigate the world of dairy-free coffee drinks, we’ve put together a handy alt milk guide with some of our favorite beverages we think go best with each (non) milk.
The newest trend in dairy-free and quickly gaining popularity and love among coffee drinkers for its extra creamy texture. It’s great for hot or iced lattes and makes a great cortado.
Because almond milk has less sugar than other options, it’s perfect for flavored lattes. While vanilla reigns in popularity, an almond milk latte goes great with any flavored syrup.
The original go-to option for dairy-free drinkers. Soy makes great, lush foam – perfect for cappuccinos. Give it a try!
