Hi Hollie. There are many nondairy alternatives available now. You can make your own nut milks using soaked almonds or cashews or coconuts, or you can generally purchase rice, oat, almond, even hazelnut or macadamia milk.
I have found that most people find rice milk similar in taste and consistency to trim milk. If buying a milk alternative, check the label for added sweeteners and avoid those. A word that will typically appear on the label if an additional sweetener has been used is ‘maltodextrin’. It can be good to mix up the types of milk alternatives you use, choosing a different one each month, for example.
If you find yourself stressing about all of the people you have to buy for – flip this around. Consider instead how lucky you are to have so many loved ones.
