3 Top Dairy Substitutes In Coffee

It’s no secret, non-dairy milk’s popularity for coffee is on the rise. Regular milk in coffee is simply not an option for some anymore, especially for health conscious individuals.

The non-dairy milk market has expanded substantially, providing us with options that are tasty while still being good for your health, a rare combination in the past. Regular whole milk is no longer the only way to achieve a creamy delightful coffee. Here are the three most popular alternatives for milk.


Oat Milk


Oat milk is a coffee shop favorite, becoming one of the most requested non-dairy milks to add in your cup of coffee. Compared to other plant-based milks, oat milk has earned more points with its consumers because of its environmental impact. This thick and creamy option is the closest you’ll come to the taste and feeling of real milk. Typically very dense with nutrients such as fiber, protein and iron, it does contain a higher calorie count however, it is extremely versatile with both warm and cold coffees. The natural creamy sweetness will leave you completely satisfied.

For a memorable coffee experience, Angelino’s Breakfast Blend with oat milk makes a stellar combination leaving you feeling the full depth of flavor and quality in every sip.

Almond Milk


Low in calorie and sugar, almond milk is one of the top-selling non-dairy milk options known for its rich flavor and texture. Made by grinding almonds and blending with water, this creamy textured milk produces a nutty flavor that many people love in their coffee.

This type of milk is popularly steamed and poured over hot coffee. If you tend to enjoy your mornings with a sweet cup of coffee, you may consider pairing vanilla sweetened almond milk with our Angelino’s French Vanilla flavored coffee. This sweet and creamy combo is a great substitute for going to a coffee shop.

 Coconut Milk


Extremely understated, coconut milk provides one of the thickest and creamiest textures for coffee. The coconut flavor is not overpowering and gives you the perfect slight sweetness for your coffee.

Depending on your preferences, there are different types of coconut milk that you may consider. Canned coconut milk gives you a stronger coconut taste while being much thicker. If you’re looking to dip your feet in the water, trying the regularly packaged coconut milk will give you a lighter taste and sweetness you’ll love.
