Milk? It isn’t just from cows anymore, that’s for sure.
Today the cold case in the grocery store stocks all sorts of alternatives to traditional dairy milk.
Some people want to drink milk that isn’t from cows because of dietary preferences—they might be vegan, for example.

Still others may just like the flavor or the options that are available—especially when it comes to adding it to that much-beloved drink, coffee.
