Another milk to add to the supermarket shelves. The selection of different milk, cow, cashew, almond ....... It makes the hummus section now look small.
I always get real milk/or half and half in my coffee --- but over the weekend I decided to change up my iced coffee and asked for oat milk (the person in front of me was raving about it). Pretty good. I can't remember the if it was Califa Farms or Oatly (spelling?).
So has anyone tried oat milk? Any fav plant based milks?

I've seen it but haven't tried it yet. I use plain old non trendy non fat milk most of the time. soy milk tastes like beans to me, the mouth feel of coconut milk is horrid. I poured that one down the sink after one taste. I like almond milk best so far. have not tried cashew or oat yet. didn't care for rice milk. there are concerns about arsenic levels in rice if you use it a lot. I started eating greek yogurt for breakfast and lost the need for something on my cereal, so nonfat dairy is my main choice. I want some kind of non sweet milk for my latte. dairy milk has a big protein advantage over nut and grain milks.
I, too, mainly use regular nonfat milk but I do like almond milk. I've tried soy milk and it is O.K. I HATE coconut milk. Tastes too much of coconut which I despise. To me, cashew milk has odd mouth feel/texture. I have not tried oat milk yet and really doubt that I will. I think I'll just stick to regular milk and almond milk at times.
Thought of this when I was in the grocery store yesterday. There was a "demo" for oat milk set up in the store. Looked like they were offering samples from three different types of a single brand. I'm not a fan of any milk as a beverage, so I didn't try. I do use both dairy and nondairy milk as an ingredient.

It would be interesting to try oat milk - at least once - as I can tolerate oats as apposed to cashews or almonds. Last year I quit dairy and no longer get so bloated I can't zip my jeans. Lactaid to the rescue! Have also discovered Green Valley Creamery's lovely products: yogurt and kefir (sub for buttermilk in baking). If I'm willing to drive a distance I can find their sour cream and cream cheese too. The company is based in California but I have no plans on leaving Texas anytime soon.
