I’ve been on the hunt for a new milk.  I’ve been drinking Soy Milk my whole life and I’m kind of over it.
I popped over to Whole Foods and picked up these three organic unsweetened milk substitutes: 365 Almond Milk, Manitoba Harvest Hemp Bliss, and Turtle Mountain Coconut Milk.
Here the low down:
Almond Milk: 40 cals/ 3g fat/ 0g saturated fat/ 180 mg sodium/  2g carbs/ 1g fiber/ 1g protein. 
It smells delicious, nutty and yummy. It has almost no natural sweetest and tastes the way almonds do after chewing them a little bit.  The consistency is a bit thicker than soy milk, which I like. 
Hemp Milk: 60 cals/ 7g fat/ .5g saturated fat/  50mg sodium/  1g carbs/ 0g fiber/  2g protein. 
Bleh! sooo not sweet, very earthy and smells like dirt and plants.  It leaves a residue in the bak of my throat.  It’s less creamy than almond milk   and has the least amount of vitamins. 
Coconut Milk: 45 cals/ 5g fat/ 4g saturated fat/  65g sodium/ 2g carbs/  1g fiber/  0g protein.
Has no smell really but tastes super sweet.  Almost too sweet to be considered as a stand in for Soy milk.  It’s creamy probably perfect for coffee and has the most vitamins. 
My pick: The Unsweetened Almond Milk.  It has the most mild taste, lowest calories, fat and 0 saturated fat, it’s creamy-ish and subtley nutty. It also had Vitamin A, C, D, E, Iron, and Calcium.  It lacks the potency of B12 that Coconut Milk has but for the cal decrease I can certainly take a B-Complex vitamin.
