One of the oat milks in the list that has more nutrient qualities with Vitamin A, D & B12. And slightly higher protein levels than some of the other milks. Again another oat milk that is ideal for the baristas out there. It isn’t overly sweet or excessively heavy. What it is is fully foamable, putting you in total control over the density and performance. This is their premium product and they also have other oat milk options that might be cheaper. But many vegans say this is one of their favourite oat milks.

If you are having trouble finding a oat milk that is ‘milkier’ in texture, flavour and mouthfeel. Made from 100% Australian grown Oats and an oat milk option that is lower in sugar.

Vitasoy Oat Protein + Unsweetened

This has to be my personal favourite oat milk at the moment. Anyone else? Has a really milky taste and mouthfeel. Works so well in smoothies and even coffee.
