Exploring The Flavours Of Oat Milk
Oat milk is made from steel-cut oats (or whole oats) blended with water, then strained to create a smooth, creamy liquid. As oats absorb water so well, oat milk is typically pretty dense with the nutrients oats already have, including fibre, protein, and iron. Surprisingly, a lot like cow’s milk, but with a slightly, well, oat-y aftertaste.
Oat milk is thicker and naturally sweeter than many non-dairy milks (think somewhere between 2% and whole milk), but still light. It works well in everything from your morning coffee and cereal to most recipes, including soups, curries, mashed potatoes, and baked goods.
Oat milk has the most neutral flavour out of all of the alternatives, making it the best option if you don’t want to overpower the flavours of your everyday coffee.
That way you can still enjoy all of our origin coffees without masking the taste with other plant-based milk alternatives. Therefore, the coffee remains the focus of the drink, which is how I believe it should be.
