It's a nutty world. Nondairy milk is a $2 billion-a-year business, but which one should you gulp? After sipping our way through a ton of cow-free cartons, here are our faves.

Vanilla Quaker Oat Beverage 

Similar to the stuff you find at a hipster coffee shop—only a lot less expensive. Add a splash to coffee or black tea, or froth it for a DIY latte. $4.29 for 48 ounces

So Delicious Unsweetened Organic Almondmilk with Cashew 

One of the most milk-like options we tried. The two-nut blend has a clean, mild flavor, so this one's great for cereal or cookie-dunking. $4.29 for 48 ounces

Forager Project Organic Coconut Cashewmilk, Unsweetened Vanilla

This blend is a bit thinner than some of the other options, which is good for folks who prefer the texture of low-fat dairy. $5.99 for 48 ounces

Califia Farms Toasted Coconut Almondmilk

One sip of this is like taking a trip to the tropics. Speaking of, try it in your next piña colada. $4.49 for 48 ounces

Malk Pure Pecan Maple

Don't balk at this Malk made with only natural ingredients. The caramel flavor would make pancake batter delightfully mapley before you add syrup. $5.49 for 28 ounces

Elmhurst Milked Walnuts

The term milked walnuts made us chuckle, but the pure walnut flavor won us over. Try this in hot chocolate, or serve a cold glass with a slice of warm banana bread. $5.99 for 32 ounces

Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almondmilk, Hint of Honey Original

We'd say that there's a tad more than a hint of honey here, but this semisweet option is great for pouring over oatmeal. $3.99 for 64 ounces
