Milk Substitutes?

Hi! my name is Dina, I’m 27 y/o from Tel Aviv, Israel.

I’m new to Robyn’s website and find it a treasure of information.

I guess one could define me as “flexitarian”. My aim is to eventually consist 70% of my diet on raw foods.

The question is: Breakfast! Besides the wonderful smoothies – green, pink or otherwise… What can be substituted for milk?

It would be a simple question had I not discovered I can’t “do” soy milk or tofu. I’ve also tried almond and rice milks (all of them of the boxed varieties), with the same higly  unpleasant results.

So, milk substitutes. I’ve discovered that for cooking, cashew cream works amazingly well instead of dairy (*especially when I want to make meat dishes for guests who keep kosher – they swear it’s the real deal). But what about a cup of hot chocolate or cold milk on cereal? what can be done for that?

I’ll be very glad for your ideas, anyone who  can help. Thanks!
