Lots of people are finding that dairy products don’t agree with them in one way or another. I seem to have no issues digesting milk, but I do find that it aggravates my respiratory allergies – at least I think I’ve deduced dairy to be the culprit. I was pretty disappointed to come to this realization, especially when so many foods that we, as North Americans enjoy include dairy. So regardless of whether you’re one of those people with a diagnosed intolerance or not, it’s nice to have alternatives to milk. I’ve tried many alternatives and while I do like almond milk quite a lot, nothing that I’ve tried so far compares with oat milk.
Oat milk has a slight sweetness to it (even completely unsweetened) and a light oatmeal flavor. It’s so delicious on cereal or granola that I would choose it hands down over regular milk. It also steams and froths up like a champ if you’re used to a cappuccino or latte in the morning and blends so nicely with the flavor of coffee. It has a creamy consistency that is more similar to whole milk than to low-fat milk, which makes it feel luxurious as well as delicious.
