I started drinking oat milk more regularly on our summer trip to Austria in 2018. To my complete surprise a restaurant that we love for breakfast and lunch was serving oat milk cappuccinos and being in Europe, I just HAD to have a cappuccino. My preference is definitely a tea latte though ( I am little sensitive to caffiene ).
The thing I love about oat milk is that it has a very neutral taste because as much as I love nut milks, they are just not my favourite when it comes to most warm drinks. Almond milk, as you likely know, has a very distinct taste and the almond flavour can take over. And as you likely know, I don't drink cow's milk nor do we give it to Vienna , our 4-year old.
Oat milk is the most neutral tasting of all the non-dairy milks out there and that’s why I love it!
It also foams up pretty nicely if you buy a "barista blend" from the health food store. However, there is likely to be a few additives if it's able to sit on a store shelf for months on end. When I'm buying oat milk, I usually by Earth's Own Organic oat milk and it's refrigerated so there are fewer additives. However, that's not why you're here!
Making oat milk is very, very easy and making chocolate oat milk is just as easy, plus one more ingredient -- raw cacao.
Before we get to this creamy, delicious lovely milk let's talk about some of the health benefits of oat milk.
