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.

Thanks!

I prefer Rice Dream to just about every kind of soy milk.

But then I liked the soy milk too.

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.

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.

I'd suggest trying a few different kinds..rice/soy/almond. 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.

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.

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...

have never tasted almond milk though, will try it one of these days...

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.

Yes! Slimy is the word to describe it. I drained the milk off of every piece and then squeezed it on the bowl.

I am definitely going to try Rice Dream next.

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.
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.


Thanks for all the suggestions.
