    rice milk?

    Shop Now
    So I've been off dairy except the teaspoon or two or milk in my tea most days -- and would like to get the last of the dairy out.

    Thing is - I live in England. Tea is constant. And it's nice. And it's meant I've kicked the coffee habit, and I like having a cup of tea today instead of 5 coffees.

    I've tried coconut milk in tea and it's awful. Tried several brands. It works in coffee, not in tea.

    So am thinking rice milk. Picked some up with no additives. Thoughts?

    Why not forgo it altogether? Good tea and coffee don't need to be dressed up with sugar or milk.

    It's fine, especially in such small amounts.

    I know how you feel! I like my tea and coffee "light". Why not use almond milk instead of rice milk? Rice is a grain and not PB or paleo, but some nuts are allowed.

    @Chaohinon -- I hear you, but it's a true pleasure. I drink a lot of non-caffeinated tea like ginger and peppermint and the rest in the evening, but it's not a Saturday morn without a bit of nice hot tea.

    Is there any data (including n=1) that almond milk would be any better (in terms of insulin response, etc) in almond milk than rice milk? I'm less worried about 'what's allowed' than real arguments for or against...

    And if in such small amounts fine, that's fine too!

    Instead of milk could you try heavy cream? Or do you need to be 100% dairy free?

    Almond milk is much lower in carbs (2g versus 10g). If you're just using a bit to lighten your tea, neither one would make a huge difference.

    Cool, thanks everyone. I'm not hearing any big concerns about the rice milk so full steam ahead on that I think...
