When you lactose intolerant finding the perfect milk substitute can seem overwhelming. Alas, it doesn’t have to be. The trial and error game stops here. Almond milk by Califia Farms is the winner.
Almond Milk is a little sweeter than cow’s milk so it’s perfect for cereal, milkshakes, smoothies, lattes, etc. Also it’s better for you too. Way less calories so you can drink more.
Another good thing is it’s easy to find since there are a lot of brands selling Almond Milk. Califia Farms is my favorite. Though some people also like Almond Breeze and Silk. It’s your personal choice.
According to the Plant Based Food Association, 52% of people switch to plant-based products for the simple and practical reason that plant-based products just taste better sometimes. Isn’t that something? It just taste better.
Califia Farms Almond Milk and Oat Milk
Founded in 2010, Califia Farms provides the best non-dairy milk for coffee, no matter one’s preference. For the fans of almond milk or oat milk, fun and flavorful, or soft and smooth— the California grown fruits and nuts found in Califia Farms plant-based coffee creamers bring a full and fun flavor to any cup of coffee.
Califia Farms creates more than just non-dairy creamers! The brand guarantees high-quality, lactose-free and vegan-friendly products across the board. Its products vary from Strawberry flavored Probiotic Dairy Free Yogurt Drinks to Plant Butter Sea Salt with Avocado Oil to Tart Cherry Lemonade. While all these products are delicious, we wouldn’t recommend mixing them into a morning cup of coffee!
Here are five of the best non-dairy milk for coffee choices from Califia Farms.
1. Seasonal Flavors
Nothing goes better with yellow leaves and crisp morning air than a seasonally tailored cup of coffee. Though the fall season has passed, the Fall Collection features Pumpkin Spice Creamer, Maple Carmel Almond milk Creamer and Pumpkin Spice Better Half. While it might be difficult to find in stores, fall fanatics can still order the collection online through the Califia Farms website!
The same goes for a snowy day in winter! The best plans are no plans— other than curling up next to a fireplace with a cup of coffee with Califia Farms non-dairy creamer, of course! The winter collection takes milk alternatives for coffee to a whole other level.

2. Oakmilk Creamer
Oat milk is the most recent trend in plant-based milk options and it’s gluten-free! According to Nielsen, oat milk generated $40 million in U.S. sales in 52 weeks ending on August 24, 2019. That is $6 million more in sales than the year prior!
