I am eating a bowl of my fave cereal right now and I am having a real hard time choking it down with soy milk. I think the first problem is I bought regular when I should have maybe gotten light. I am used to fat free milk. It almost tastes like water. But I have tried soy milk many times and don't like the taste. I have to find something though because I can't go back to milk and I don't want to give up my bowl of cereal every morning.<br><br><br><br>
Thanks!

I prefer Rice Dream to just about every kind of soy milk.<br><br><br><br>
But then I liked the soy milk too.<br><br><br><br>
My wife recently made the switch from real milk. After trying some soy and potato-based milk she landed on Rice Dream and loves it.

Yeah, if that's an option now I would try that.

If you liked thin dairy milk, you may find rice milk to be better. I couldn't stand soymilk when I first dtiched dairy..it was thick and tasted like well, soybeans.<br><br><br><br>
I'd suggest trying a few different <a href="http:/soy/almond">kinds..rice/soy/almond</a>. You can get sweetened or plain or with vanilla. I bet you can find something that you'd like. Almond milk is my favorite with cereal now, but it's definitely an acquired taste.

I like rice dream better than any soymilk I've tasted too. You might have to try a lot of plant based milks before you find one you like. Also, some brands of soymilk taste a lot better than others so you might want to try a different kind.

Light soymilk tastes awful. (I love plain Silk soymilk.)<br><br><br><br>
I used to drink skim milk when I drank milk, and rice milk is similar. You would probably prefer that.

I switched from skim cow's milk to rice milk on my cereal about three years ago and never looked back. I can't really tolerate soymilk unless it's mixed in with lots of other things. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I think soy drink is more of an aquired taste. For someone used to cow's milk, I'd definatly go with rice. Also there's almond, hazaelnut etc drinks now.

I never liked soy milk, too much of an aftertaste for me. But I love rice milk!! I use plain when cooking and vanilla in my cereal. I agree, if you're used to skim milk, rice milk is almost identical.

i used to drink soy milk unsweetened, but i switched to rice milk because i already eat tofu almost everyday, and i sorta had a soy scare -- read too many pros and cons, i guess. anyhoo, now i prefer rice milk. rice chocolate milk is surprisingly good too, considering it looks watery...<br><br><br><br>
have never tasted almond milk though, will try it one of these days...

Rice milk is great. When I ate cereal, I'd put mostly rice milk in, then a tiny bit of soy because rice is runny like water. Almond milk is good, except way too sweet for most foods.

I agree with this suggestion. Try different kinds - you won't know until you find out! Everyone is different, so we can't really help you that much. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Rice Milk is what I use for cereal. I find soy milk to be too "slimy" for cereal.</div>
</div>
<br><br><br>
Yes! Slimy is the word to describe it. I drained the milk off of every piece and then squeezed it on the bowl.<br><br><br><br>
I am definitely going to try Rice Dream next.<br><br><br><br>
I do realize everyone's tastes are different and wasn't looking for someone to tell me what I would like. Just some suggestions. And I definitely got some. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:"> I probably never would have even looked specifically for rice dream and I have never heard of almond milk. So this was a very informative thread. I am thinking some of the other flavors mentioned might be good in coffee. That one or two cups a year I crave when it gets really cold. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br><br><br>
Thanks for all the suggestions.
