If your kids really like something by the glass, that's really the only time I would use rice/oat milk or something if they like it. For baking, smoothies it just seems like a waste. If you think about it, rice milk/oat milk is just the nut, with some water, vanilla maybe, and sweetner. So if you are baking, just use water, with a little extra vanilla or something. For a smoothie, just add water, and extra fruit. If you likle the idea of oat milk, just put a spoon of oats/hot water in blender with a little sweetner and vanilla and blend a minute, and you could use that for the "milk" in baking. It seems expensive to me to spend a couple bucks on something that is pureed rice/oats.
I think almond and coconut milk is the healthiest. I don't always use a ton of canned coconut milk, so when i open the can, I pour it in to ice cube trays and use that as my ice when blending smoothies/shakes. It also makes THE best pudding/ice cream/custards!
The simplest ice cream is a can of coconut milk, a banana, 1/4 good cocoa powder, 1/2 sweetner, 2 tsp vanilla blend in blender until very smooth and freeze. DD actually likes this cold like cold pudding.

How much protein is in coconut milk? I know that soy milk is frowned upon, but I dont know how to get my son protein. He has a bad allergy to eggs, we dont really eat meat, we are dairy free. We've tried quinoa, he wont touch it. So, I at least know protein is in the soy milk. I know he doesnt need loads of protein, but his diet is egg, dairy, peanut, tree nut, fish, and shellfish free. He is small, so I get very paranoid about stuff like protein. I do use sunflower butter, but he only eats it on occasion. Should I just start looking more to coconut milk for his daiy needs? We do it for some baking and ice cream. I like the idea of freezing it for smoothies and stuff. Tomorrow we are icing cookies with it.
Sorry we cross posted. Yes, he does it beans. He actually loves beans. So, I know that is something.
That is why I end up sticking with soy milk. i get tofu through wic, but we only eat it once every 2-3 weeks, if that. We do whole grains, and beans. My ds used to be a lot better about fruits and veggies, but we are going through a rough patch with that. I push smoothies on him, but he barely takes a few sips.
We dont do dairy because each of us experiences problems with it, both internal and external. i do love the dairy free life. I just wish he could eat an egg or something! Thanks for the replies! Sorry for hijacking!
