Okay, so this question might sound really n00b, but are there ANY vegan milks that just don't curdle in coffee or tea? Even between the refrigerated ones and the aseptic boxed ones, they all curdle! I know Silk's soy creamer is pretty good...but I'm talking about milk here! Need a good milk for my tea lattes :\

Well, the almond milk I use does not curdle when I use it in chai or rooibos lattes.

I use Silk PureAlmond.

Trick I learned: always put the milk in the mug first and then add the coffee. It never curdles for me when I use this method.

Add a pinch of baking soda. No more curdling.

Almond milk doesn't curdle, and MimicCreme makes milk/cream that is good for coffee. I also think the So Delicious Coconut Milk would be amazing, but I haven't tried it yet.

I find that almond breeze usually does the trick.

Really? Feel like I've been doing it wrong...because even when I warmed up the almond breeze, and poured my coffee INTO the milk it still made a gross, sludgy mess. The quest continues...

Well you asked for a milk and this is a creamer, but the coconut milk creamer definitely does not curdle.

I've had luck with Almond Breeze as well, I haven't had very good luck with soy milk though.

Alpro at room temperature. And not the low-fat stuff, either.

I like coconut milk as a creamer (both the canned stuff and the So Delicious varieties).

Didn't someone discover that curdling also had to do with how acidic your coffee was?

I would have thought this would be common sense. I mean, when you need to curdle 'milk' you use lemon juice/vinegar/bacteria which produce acids. That's why the baking soda trick works, and why Silk soya milk (and some others, I assume) has it as an ingredient ('acidity regulator').

It's also why I once tried to neutralise acidic nasty instant coffee with Brillo dish soap. Dear sweet Gods, that was a BAD idea. I can no longer smell even the faintest whiff of Brillo without wanting to vomit.

I am always confused when people ask this. How bad is your milk curdling? I never notice it with any kind of milk in coffee or tea. I just made a cup and I do notice a few little flecks of curdle but not much! Is that what you're all talking about?

I've never noticed any curdling either, with many kinds of soymilk (Silk, Vitasoy-RIP, Earth Balance, generic) or coffee. And I don't have any kind of technique. Have I just been really lucky all this time?

That is so weird, you all don't notice curdling at all???! It's always been an issue with every nondairy milk I've used. Even almond milk, Almond Breeze, all the brands! I just had some almond milk in coffee, and it curdled so much that the last half of my cup looked like a white 3D sculpture in black coffee.

This is usually all the more curdle I have dealt with.

I've never had any curdling at home, but I've had at some coffee shops and they're the exact same brand of coffee. I always thought it had to do with the temperature.
