water ..... I don't drink "milks" at all
I tell people I'm too stupid to know what's impossible. I have ridiculously large dreams, and half the time they come true.

my fav milk is banana 'mylk'...
get really ripe bananas..the spotty ones. the ones they usually throw out..lol! we got 39kg for 15$ AUS yesterday. cert organic. just cos they were ripe..
anyway, you peel the bananas and put em in the blender. instead of just holding the blender on, you 'pulse' it for a second on and off. this stops the vortex forming and drawing in oxygen and oxidising your bananas and giving that bitter taste.
pulse your next banana smoothy and taste the difference!

thanks for all your messages
keep them coming - all information is good.
We have tried the banana milk but it tastes more like a smoothie - which is fine, but not for everyday used like on cereals - for that we sticking to the rice milk.
Hemp milk... never even heard of that one!

My absolute favourite soya milk brands are the one by Sojasun and also the BONSOY soya milk, I saw them in Planet Organic in London and also you can get them online at goodnessdirect.co.uk website I think. I haven't had them since I lived in London though (a long time ago) as outside London they're hard to find!
The nicest soya milk out of the brands that are widely available in my opinion is the Provamel fresh soya milk (in the tall cartons in the chiller cabinet near the dairy milk), the organic and the calcium fortified non-organic are both tasty. I like the Provamel chocolate soya milk as well.
Almond milk is gorgeous but expensive to buy in packets. I do buy it now and again because I like it so much. I have made my own in the past you need muslin to do this (Available at kitchenware shops) but it tastes just as nice as the packaged almond milk and may work out a bit cheaper?
I do like oat milk (oatly) and rice milk (Rice Dream) as well.
I HATE tigernut (chufa) milk IT IS VILE I tried it once bought it from Holland and Barratts. NEVER AGAIN.
It takes a short amount of time for tastebuds to recalibrate when you go vegan but I have known omni's who drink soya milk in cereal because they think it tastes nicer, and creamier, than cow milk in cereal! (They are not vegan or vegetarian....) So persevere and try out different brands and then you'll find the brand that tastes good to you.
