WHICH MILK SHOULD I have?

Cosmopolitan (Philippines) - - Hot & Healthy -

SKIM MILK Boasts 8 grams of pro­tein and is lower in calo­ries than whole, but since it lacks fat, it may leave you hun­gry, which Har­vard re­search shows may cause you to eat more. Best for: Post­work­out. ALMOND MILK Stick with unsweet­ened, which has zero sugar and 30 calo­ries per serv­ing, com­pared to 100-plus calo­ries and up to 20 grams of sugar in sweet­ened. Best for: Mix­ing with pro­tein pow­der. CO­CONUT MILK Most of its calo­ries (up to 45) are from fat, lend­ing a rich fla­vor. Nutri­tion­ally, it’s a wash—no bad stuff (sugar) but al­most no good stuff (pro­tein). Best for: Desserts. SOY MILK Packs more pro­tein (5 to 8 grams) than other non-dairy milk, but some fla­vored ver­sions have up to 17 grams of sugar: 34 per­cent of your daily limit. Best for: Cof­fee, ce­re­als. GOAT MILK A pos­si­bil­ity for the lac­tosea­verse who want some­thing like cow milk. The slightly sweet bev of­fers 5 grams of pro­tein. Best for: Soups, shakes.
