plant-based milk alternatives

You don’t have to compromise your protein when switching to plant milk! There are a lot of delicious alternatives these days. If you’re looking to switch but want to keep a similar protein profile to cow’s milk, check out these options:⁠

Flax Milk

@good_karma_foods makes a flax milk with added pea protein⁠⁠

Soy Milk

my personal favorite right now⁠. This is great for making things creamy, like in your morning coffee!⁠

Pea Milk

for example @ripplefoods makes a 100% dairy-free, vegan, nut-, lactose- and gluten-free pea-based milk⁠. This one is higher in protein than our regular almond or coconut milk.

Sesame Milk

Yep, it exists! @hopeandsesameco makes it, I tried it, and it’s tasty!⁠

Hemp Milk

Another higher protein option, plus it comes with some omega-3’s!

Oat Milk

This one is lower in fat, but almost just as creamy as soy milk or coconut milk is.


So many brands are getting creative with their plant milks. I’ve seen chocolate and banana flavors, combinations of almond/cashew milk or almond/coconut milk, even soy milk fortified with DHA (omega 3’s). It makes the switch to plant-based eating THAT much easier. If you have a FAVORITE plant milk, let me know in the comments!


Eating more plants can come with its challenges. There’s a lot of nutrition noise out there, everyone has an opinion, and it can be confusing to figure out what works best for YOU. Working through these challenges and learning how to easily incorporate more plant-based foods into your diet and lifestyle can be helpful. Working with a plant-based dietitian to guide you through your unique journey and surrounding yourself with other like-minded people who are on a similar journey can be monumental.
