The good news is that there are so many ones out there that one may find a variety to your liking. That said, my favorites in terms of the more they remind me of real milk, are cashew milk and hemp milk. The flavors of course are different, but the textures are nice. I always get the unsweetened plain varieties. Others that aren't bad to me are the almond milk and the oat milk.
What a lovely name--especially for someone who enjoys milk substitutes! Your suggestion to keep trying flavors was very helpful; I found it took a while to find my preferred brand, luckily only a few minutes away from my home.
