Whether you’re paleo, vegan, lactose intolerant, kosher, or just plain adventurous in the kitchen, your non-dairy options now encompass far more than soy, coconut, and almond milks. Consider grain milks, such as oat and amaranth; nut milks, such as cashew and hazelnut; and seed milks, such as sunflower and hemp.

Dina Cheney joins host Lisa Davis to share insights from her book, The New Milks: 100-Plus Dairy-Free Recipes for Making and Cooking with Soy, Nut, Seed, Grain, and Coconut Milks, which Amazon describes as "The definitive guide to nondairy milks—the first comprehensive cookbook demystifying milk alternatives—here’s how to make and customize all types of vegan milks, with one hundred delicious recipes and handy comparison charts, tips, and guidance for choosing the right dairy-free milks for cooking and baking."
