5 Cow’s Milk Alternatives You’ve Probably Never Heard Of But Really Should Know


There are so many cow’s milk alternatives on the market that finding the best one may be tricky. Soy and almond milks are probably the first non-dairy drinks that come to mind — but they’re not the only dairy-free options out there.

If you’re willing to open your mind, there are dozens of alternatives to cow’s milk — like camel’s milk and quinoa milk. We’re guessing the idea of drinking camel’s milk never crossed your mind. And quinoa milk? We wouldn’t have thought of that in a million years. 

And dairy-free doesn’t mean it’s not delicious! You can make many of these “milks” at home, which gives you the option to customize them to your family’s preferences (and avoid that unhealthy added sugar).

Whether you’re ditching dairy because of food sensitivities or intolerances, or you just prefer the taste of the alternatives, we’ve rounded up some of the most out-there milks that you’ve probably never heard of but totally should. Keep scrolling to learn more about the health benefits of these dairy-free milks.
