Truthfully, I could end this list right here.
Planet Oat Extra Creamy oat milk is easily my most favorite. It has the best creamy texture, doesn’t taste strongly like oat, and isn’t too thick or too watery. It is also certified gluten-free and non-gmo, which is great!
It is oat milk perfection and I love using it in my matcha lattes!
Chobani Oat has a slightly stronger oat flavor than Planet Oat. I prefer my milk to be as neutral tasting as possible so it is more versatile. However, for lattes and cereal and smoothies, this is a great choice and it’s usually available at most grocery stores. Accessibility earns points in my book!
Oatly is a commonly used oat milk favorite, especially in cafes. Don’t get me wrong, I love it! It is wonderful in lattes or as a creamer for coffees, but it has a very strong oat flavor, which is not versatile enough for me to make it my #1. It also can be harder to find in stores. However, their company transparency is so progressive and I love their values and mission. I definitely get excited when I see it as a milk option at a coffee shop!
Elmhurst Oat milk is one you should know! Elmhurst milked oats has the most minimal ingredients with no added oils, sugars, gums or fillers. It is certified gluten-free and non-gmo. If you want the purest shelf stable oat milk, this is the one! Taste wise, it has a subtle but noticeable oat flavor and even the unsweetened flavor has a slight sweetness to it but versatile for most recipes.
I am always a fan of all things Thrive Market because they do staple items so well. Thrive’s oat milk is one of the few available that are organic, which is always something I look for, especially oat products. It also only has two ingredients making it one of the most simple and basic options on the market. It does have a noticeable oat flavor but with minimal ingredients and organic status, it’s hard to complain.
