From beans to nuts to seeds and of course rice, plant milks are popping up with a variety of tastes, textures and types of nutrition. Some brands offer minimal ingredients while others add on various gums, oils and stabilizers for better mouthfeel or shelf life. What you prefer will ultimately depend on function. Are you looking for a protein packed shake base or simply something cold and creamy to dip your cookies in?

Either way, as always, check your labels, choose your battles or follow this easy recipe to make your own plant milk.

Below is my ranking from most to least favorite in flavor. Check out the clip below for my unfiltered and unbiased reviews of Malk, Pacific Foods Hemp and Ripple plant milk brands.
