Along with almond, rice, and soy, oat milk has been increasing in popularity over the last few years and is quickly becoming the favoured plant-based alternative to traditional cows milk. This vegan alternative is made by simply blending water and oats, and then straining out the liquid. Perfect for adding to your morning coffee or cereal, oat milk is has a richer and creamier texture compared to other milk alternatives.
So why should you try Oat Milk and is it worth adding into your daily diet?
We all know oats and grains are some of the best types of food for a variety of reasons. Firstly, packed with fibre they are great for your body in helping digest food but they are also full of plant based protein, vitamin B and minerals! Did you know that they have also been linked to helping reduce the risk of heart disease and improve cholesterol levels! The fibre also provides prebiotics which help fuel friendly bacteria and increase your immunity and overall gut health.
Oat milk is the perfect option for those who are lactose intolerant or if you live dairy-free. Ideal for if you have allergies to almonds, coconut or soy, oat milk can prove to be a safe option. However, it can be easily added into your everyday diet along with regular cows milk!
