“I’ve had clients from Louisiana who were raised on cream in everything and are easing into a plant-based diet,” said Los Angeles nutritionist and chef Serena Poon. Her secret for leaning in? “I take a whole milk product, split it in half, add a vegan one and blend the two.” The next step, Poon says, is to venture into the new vegan offerings showing up on store shelves, including many that boast healthful probiotics. One warning, though. Many products boost the flavor with added sugars, so read labels carefully. For those looking to cut back on dairy, here are some ideas:

Cultured coconut and almond milk, oat fiber and fruit juices make up the Probiotic Yogurt drinks from Califia Farms, which launched this past summer; pour them into a bowl of cereal, splash atop oatmeal or drink on their own. Each 8 oz. serving contains probiotics important for gut health. They come in flavors such as unsweetened plain, mango, strawberry and super berry, and contain between 100 and 150 calories. Available in 8 oz. and 25.4 oz bottles, priced $2.69 or $5.49 respectively, at Gelson’s, Lassens, Vons, Albertsons. califiafarms.com.
