rice milk and quinoa milk Often times when people go dairy-free they are looking for healthy alternatives. The good thing about milk is that there are all kinds of delicious alternatives! The most common is Almond Milk (click here to learn how to make your own). I am a fan of homemade almond milk but I will say that you need to be careful if you are buying it at the grocery store. A lot of almond milk contains carrageenan, which is not great (click here to find out why).
