What do you use? I'm veggie but thinking about gradually switching dairy for non dairy.
I've tried oatly (regular) that was fine. I don't like alpro - I find it too sweet.
I am after some recommendations as I don't want to spend out on something if I don't like it
What milks do you use for various things? In also a big tea drinker (I hear oatly barista is the way to go here).

Any faves, dislikes, what works well etc?

Tesco or Aldi soya,less sweet than Alpro.

I like almond on cereal. Or rice in porridge. I try and avoid soy in these because it is quite strong tasting and I think I probably already get plenty of soy in my coffees!

It annoys me that they only come in large cartons, always go off before I use a whole one.

Oatly barista - it’s delicious!! No soya taste and creamy. Lovely in coffee too!

Sorry, just read the end properly! Yes, it’s great on everything smile

If you like oat milk, that’s probably the best one to go for environmentally speaking.

Oatly is my favourite- I like barista, whole or semi skimmed. Regular oatly or alpro oat are ok and usually cheaper. If I’m out of oat I’ll put my husband’s unsweetened almond on cereal but only if it’s blue diamond or alpro, he sometimes gets asda’s own which I find gloopy and very almond tasting.

Oatly barista is best in tea but I’ll drink soya milk in tea if that’s what’s available.

My favourite plant milk is the oatly semi one in the chiller cabinet (rather than the uht one). I don't like the barista version - personally I find it has a bit of a greasy aftertaste. I also really like the alpro unsweetened soya (chiller, not uht) too.

We use oatly barista for everything. Cereal, tea, mashed potatoes, baking, sauces. Everything.

Oatly semi chilled! We have tried all of them and this is the one we use. I feel a bit rubbish using soya and almond as they aren’t great environmentally and handily I prefer oat milk.

Thanks everyone. I shall add some oatly barista to my Tesco shop.

Oatly skinny fresh by a mile! If not I'll have rice milk in cereal.

Oat milk tastes best on cereal.
In tea I'd go for soya as I find oat milk goes all "floaty" in there for some reason.
Sainsbury's soya milk is a good one.

Unsweetened almond every time
It’s fabulous in smoothies and for cereal or porridge

We are a non dairy family and we all like the Tesco value range unsweetened soya milk. The Alpro one and Asda ones - even the unsweetened one- have a really weird sweet flavour but Tesco soya milk is really good.
