    1. Hi Jamie! You could definitely substitute with either of those, you just won’t get as much foam. The lack of foam will be due to the lower protein content of both milks compared to that of cows milk. Although I love the flavor and creaminess of almond milk, I might give oat milk a try first, it has a bit more protein than almond milk! I’d love to hear how it turns out!
