Our oat drink is the perfect swap for those looking for an alternative to dairy. It’s made with only the finest ingredients, including British-grown oats and filtered Lake District water. Plus, Oato is delivered to your door in returnable glass bottles, so it’s a healthy, plant-based drink that helps the environment in more ways than one.
What exactly is oat drink?
Oat drink (such as our outstanding Oato) is a cool and creamy alternative to cow’s milk. It’s made from oats (obviously!) and is a great option for people who prefer a plant-based alternative or have dairy allergies or dietary restrictions.
“But, what actually is it?” we hear you ask. Oat drink is created by soaking oats in water, blending them all up and then straining out the solids. What you’re left with is a smooth and silky liquid that has a subtly sweet and nutty flavour. This makes it perfect for adding to your morning coffee, pouring over cereal or enjoying all by itself!
So, whether you’re vegan, lactose intolerant or just curious about new tasty options, Oato is definitely worth a try! It’s versatile, delicious and brings a little something special to your cup.
What are oat drink benefits?
Our oat drink is fortified with extra vitamins and minerals like calcium, vitamin B-12, and vitamin D, making it a perfect start to a rainy, wintery day. Also, since oats have naturally high sugar content, there’s no added sugar or sweetener – our oat drink is sweet enough on its own. And the high fibre content of oats helps aid in healthy digestion while making you feel fuller for longer. For such a simple beverage, all the oat drink benefits make it really pack a punch!
How to use it (besides in your brew)
If you’re familiar with non-dairy alternatives, you’ve probably already tried a splash of oat drink in your morning brew or cereal. But there’s so much more you can do with it!
1. Start your day with oats
Because oats keep you fuller for longer, our oat drink is the perfect companion to any breakfast. Pour it on your oats for an oats-squared brekkie, blend it with fruit in a smoothie, or even add a touch to scrambled eggs to make them fluffy and extra delicious. Check out our overnight oats recipe to get ahead of the game.
2. Create creamy bevs
Our oat drink doesn’t just go great with a morning brew. It’s crafted specifically with coffee from our coffee subscription in mind, so it foams just like a regular latte! Use it for your morning pick-me-up, or whisk it with matcha for a dreamy, creamy matcha latte.
3. Add to your soups
It’s currently soup season, and we’re guessing you’ve got something on the hob right now (we definitely do). Use our oat drink to create a creamy base for soups like cream of mushroom, leek and potato, or even warming butternut squash.
4. Bake your heart out
Cakes, scones, banana bread – whatever baked treat you like to make – our oat drink is the perfect dairy-free ingredient. Our drink’s light, oaty finish is the perfect complement to any baked good from our bakery delivery, as well as helping make your creations light, fluffy, and delicious.
Whether you’re new to our oat drink, or it’s a weekly staple, we’re sure you’ll agree it’s a delicious addition to any kitchen!
