The following non-dairy milks are belly-friendly options and make great substitutes! Plus, it's just so weird that we are the only mammal that drinks another mammal’s milk. Think about it. Try these healthful alternatives. They are so delicious, especially when you press them yourself.
- brazil nut
- hemp milk
- oat milk
- flax milk
