I am a fiend for alternative milks. I’d like to think I’ve tried most on the market, but I keep coming back to oat.
I think it’s a combination of factors; the thickness, the creaminess, its ability to transform even the most mundane instant brews into something that tastes a little bit special.
But in addition to all of that, I love it because it’s not dairy. It’s crazy to think that most of the population, over 90%, still drink another animal’s breast milk. Not only do I feel better not drinking milk that’s meant for baby cows, but it helps the environment too.
Perfect Grind Daily state: Dairy milk requires ten times the amount of land that oat milk needs, and is impacting the environment more than any other non-dairy alternative.https://perfectdailygrind.com/2020/04/a-coffee-shop-favourite-why-is-oat-milk-so-popular/
So if you’re thinking about making the switch, oat milk is a great option to try, as it’s probably the most similar to cow’s milk in taste and texture. But there are so many lovely varieties to try in the supermarket and coffee shops, so go crazy and try some out!
