If you are new to vegan cooking then you will need to know how best to replace milk in recipes. click here for a beginners vegan cookbook.
Vegans don’t have milk from any animal (sheep, cow, goat, etc). Milk is a very common ingredient when baking and cooking. It is much easier to replace than eggs. To replace milk in recipes, just substitute any of these vegan alternatives. For example, if the recipe calls for one cup of milk, use one cup of soya milk instead. Here are some alternative milk options:
• Soya milk
Soya milk comes in a variety of flavours and is readily available in many supermarkets. Flavours include vanilla, unsweetened, chocolate, and even strawberry. Some brands are thicker and creamier than others. You may need to do some experimenting before you find the brands you like the best. Soya milk is usually a fairly neutral flavour and blends well in most recipes. Soya milk is also rich in protein.
• Nut milks
Nut milk beverages such as almond milk and hazelnut milk are also good options. Unlike soya milk, these nut milks have a distinct flavour and may not work well in every recipe. They usually available in sweetened and unsweetened varieties as well.
• Rice milk
Rice milk also offers a great option to replace milk in recipes. It is also very mild tasting and blends well in most recipes. However, it is important to note that rice milk typically doesn’t contain a lot of protein so you may need to compensate for that during the day.
As you become familiar with the different flavours of non-dairy milk replacement products, you’ll start to get a feel for which recipes will taste best with them.
Replacing buttermilk in recipes
Buttermilk is also an important ingredient used in several different recipes. For a vegan, using traditional buttermilk is impossible since it is an animal product. Buttermilk is simply regular milk that has been cultured, which means that it has some good bacteria in it much like yogurt.

1. Measure one cup of soya milk in a glass measuring cup
2. Add 1 tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice add mix
3. Let it sit for about fifteen minutes before using it.
There are several different things you can do in order to substitute it. Soya milk works the best. Rice milk and nut milks don’t work as well, so soya milk works much better.
