Chobani Oat Milk Drinks are Made Old-Style with Organic Oats

0

America’s number one selling Greek yogurt brand has launched their first “milk” line, and it’s dairy free! Chobani Oat Milk Drinks use organic, gluten-free, Non-GMO, sun-dried oats from the prairies of Saskatchewan, Canada. Chobani mills these oats in a centuries-old style, but uses modern techniques to create a creamy, fluid finish.

Chobani Oat Milk Drinks are Made with Old-Style Organic Oats

Why does Chobani Oat Milk Drink have so much added sugar listed in the nutrition facts? According to a ruling against the manufacturer Oatly, when an enzymatic process is used to make oatmilk, it breaks down the oat starch into simple sugars, and effectively creates sugars that must be claimed as “added sugars.” Chobani mills old-style, but they also use an enzymatic process to break down the oats. This is why their Plain flavors are effectively free of sugar ingredients, but they have a high “added sugars” claim on the nutrition facts.

I just bought the Choboni extra creamy oat milk because the store was out of what I normally buy for my morning coffee. I used it in my unbaked cookie recipe and they turned out great. Of course I had to have a glass of oat milk to go with the cookies and I was very pleasantly surprised! It is by far the best tasting oat milk out there!

I tried Chobani Oat Plain Extra Creamy. It has a smooth and creamy mouthfeel and taste. It has a slight sweetness to it that is pleasant to drink on its own or to have with cereal. Other brands I’ve tried have a slight bitter aftertaste but not Chobani! It’s delicious and I will drink it regularly for cholesterol health. Great milk!!

I’m taking baby steps to give up animal dairy (for the good of the planet), and this was my first try at using plant-based milk on my morning cereal. I was highly skeptical, and expected there to be a weird taste or texture. I purchased the Plain Extra Creamy on sale for $2.99 at my local Safeway store, and I was very surprised to find it to be an excellent milk substitute! So grateful to companies offering products like these.

Canola Oil?

Not sure how to rate this as your take will really depend on personal preference. The vanilla is incredibly sweet (another reviewer on here likened it to a milk shake), which is fine if you’re looking for a creamy dessert option or something to sweeten coffee/tea. However, it’s definitely not a subsitute for plain milk. Also the ingredients are kind of unfortunate – I appreciated the creaminess but when I saw it comes from canola oil, I was somewhat turned off. I see oat milk as a healthy milk substitute and this does not seem to be the case here.

Our supermarket was out of Oatly so I tried the Chobani, since it was only $3.50 at my local Jewel Osco. Both the Silk and Planet Oat brand oat milks are disappointing, so I was wary of the Chobani one but it’s excellent! This foams well in my at home Nespresso foamer, too.
