replacing milk in recipes


For a vegan, milk from any animal (sheep, cow, goat, etc) is also forbidden. It is also a very common ingredient when baking and cooking. It is also much easier to replace than eggs.


To replace milk in recipes, just substitute any of these vegan alternatives. For example, if the recipe calls for one cup of milk, use one cup of soy milk instead. Here are some alternative milk options:


  • Soy milk
    Soy milk comes in a variety of flavors and is readily available. Flavors include vanilla, unsweetened, chocolate, and even egg nog. Some brands are thicker and creamier than others. You may need to do some experimenting before you find the brands you like the best. Unless it has a distinct flavoring, soy milk is fairly neutral and blends well in recipes. Soy milk is also rich in protein.


  • Nut milks
    Nut milk beverages such as almond milk and hazelnut milk are also options. Unlike soy milk, these nut milks have a distinct flavor and may not work well in every recipe. There are sweetened and unsweetened varieties as well.


  • Rice milk
    Rice milk also offers a great option to replace milk in recipes. It is also very mild tasting and blends well in recipes. However, it is important to note that rice milk typically doesn’t contain a lot of protein so you may need to compensate for that during the day.



As you become familiar with the different flavors of these milk replacement products, you’ll start to get a feel for which recipes will taste best with them.
