You might know them as a creamer brand, but Coffee Mate has made their first move into the milk alternative category. They’ve officially launched Natural Bliss Oat Milk in classic Unsweetened and lightly sweetened Original varieties.
Natural Bliss Oat Milk aims for Higher Protein and Creamier Consistency
Yes, another oat milk. But Nestle, the parent company of Coffee Mate, thinks Natural Bliss Oat Milk will stand out from the pack for a few reasons. It’s higher in protein than most, thanks to the addition of fava bean protein. Both varieties are relatively low in sugar. And it is emulsified to be creamier and a bit higher in fat. You can see the full ingredients and nutrition facts below.
Ingredients: oat milk (water, oat flour), fava bean protein, canola oil, less than 2% of natural flavor, baking soda, gellangum, riboflavin (vitamin b2), ergocalciferol (vitamin d), cyanocobalamin (vitamin b12). contains: wheat, soy

Natural Bliss Oat Milk FAQs
We’re addressing some common questions with products like this one.
Is Natural Bliss Oat Milk Gluten Free?
No, as noted, it contains wheat. We don’t know if it is cross-contamination with wheat from the oats, or if there is wheat in the natural flavors.
Why does Natural Bliss Oat Milk contain Soy?
We couldn’t tell you! It is likely in the natural flavor or could be in the fortification. But we appreciate that Coffee Mate disclaims their “hidden” allergens.
Wait, it doesn’t Have any Calcium?
No, unlike any other oat milk brand that we’ve seen, Natural Bliss Oat Milk is fortified with vitamins B2, B12, and D, but not with calcium. This can be a benefit for those who need a lower calcium diet, who prefer to obtain calcium via whole foods, or who already get sufficient calcium in their diet. If you want a milk alternative with calcium, see our Calcium Fortification Chart.

Has a sludgy residue. The unsweetened has a vanilla flavor that I don’t like.
Unbelievably awful aftertaste that lingers all day
The store was out of my favorite blue carton of oat goodness. This nonsense was the only oat option. Upon opening the carton I was greeted with a sludgy liquid the color of newspaper and an overwhelming stench of artificial vanilla, even though the carton read unsweetened and mentioned nothing about vanilla. I used a very small amount of it in my coffee and my entire week has been ruined. It has an artificial aftertaste that’s not really vanilla, but a little numbing, very sour, and will not leave. I wanted to let the world know about the unfortunate effects this sludge will have on your tastebuds and your general outlook on life. It’s so bad. I am so full of regret.
