As more people find out about the animal cruelty and environmental degradation inherent in dairy production, they’re ditching milk and other dairy products in favor of healthful plant-based alternatives.

Since 1970, consumption of cow’s milk has fallen a whopping 40 percent in the U.S., while sales of dairy-free milk alternatives have soared by 30 percent since 2011. And Americans aren’t the only ones making the switch. According to a press release by Innova Market Insights, the market for plant-based milk is expected to reach $16.3 billion globally in 2018!

Here are some of our favorite dairy-free alternatives that will satisfy any craving:
