Oatly Foamable – an oat drink

I have received a carton of Oatly Foamable oat drink, free to review.

Having never been a barista, I wasn’t quite sure how to foam either milk or Oatly Foamable, or how foamy it should be. However I gave it my best shot, warming the Oatly Foamable in the microwave and then hand whisking it before pouring it into my coffee. The result was delicious. I really loved the oaty flavour and the best bonus was I didn’t need to add my normal half a spoon of sugar. The usual bitterness of coffee had disappeared. I have to say I preferred it to a coffee made with cow’s milk.

I also tried making a bowl of porridge with the Oatly Foamable. And I know what you’re saying. That porridge is oats anyhow, but I thought it would be a good pairing. And yes it was nice, but not a huge taste difference from using cow’s milk.

Now let me share some facts I’ve learnt about the Oatly Foamable oat drink.

  1. It is completely plant-based, so can be enjoyed by those with milk allergies as well as vegans. Also suitable for those with nut allergies.
  2. Production of this drink creates 69% fewer green house gas emissions than cow’s milk and 79% less land usage and 60% less energy usage.
  3. A long-life product which keeps in the refrigerator for upto 5 days after opening.

Oatly Foamable is available at Tesco, Waitrose, Ocado, Booths and independents, currently priced at an RRP of £1.79 for a 1 litre carton.

And take a look at the Oatly website, to see some of their other products. I’ve got my eye on trying the Orange Mango Oat Drink next.

    Froths brilliantly in a milk brother or blender. I’m just disappointed that Tesco is no longer stocking this particular brand (Foamable) due to ‘lack of demand’. I can’t understand why Nero, Costa, Starbucks and my personal fave Pret don’t use this as an alternative to dairy as there is zero flavour change to a ‘normal coffee’ as opposed to soya or coconut alternatives. This product needs more publicity – its fabulous!

    Definitely worth a try, interesting to see about the environmental factor. It’s not something I have thought much about before
