The main uses for milk are in tea (and occasionally coffee) and on cereal. Other uses - in cooking - are rare, and can probably be discounted.
Cereal is easy: many of them seem to be good for that. But I'm struggling to find one that works well in tea. Some of them specifically warn about hot drinks, so I've avoided those. Others will take it, but have other issues:
- You need much more of it to have any effect, so that a cuppa loses its full heat (same problem applies to that abomination semi-skimmed dairy milk).
- They don't soften the bitterness of a good builders in the way real milk does.
- They seem to leave a residue in the bottom of the cup. Not a dealbreaker, but mildly annoying.
Least bad I've tried recently was an Alpro made from oats. Any better suggestions?
