Silk Oatmilk Gives Us Something New to Shout About

0

Every time I saw a picture of Silk Oat Yeah Oatmilk, I thought of the Kool-Aid man busting through a wall, shouting “Oh Yeah!” Apparently, the people at Silk also realized the odd correlation to those sugar packets, because they’ve dropped the overly enthusiastic name. It’s now simply called Silk Oatmilk, and it’s now available in four versatile varieties.

Silk Oatmilk Gives Us Something New to Shout About

According to Silk, you can feel good about enjoying their oatmilk for sustainability, too. It reportedly has a smaller footprint than most other types of milk alternatives, which have a baby footprint compared to dairy milk. But how does it taste? You can leave your own rating and review below!

Original (formula updated October 2020)

The subtle flavor of this simple oatmilk might make the transition easy for dairy-free newbies. It’s fairly neutral in taste, and is free of added sugars. The 4 grams of sugar in each serving is from the oats themselves.

0g Sugar

Oats naturally convert to sugars during the enzymatic process of making creamier oatmilk. But they’ve created another step in the production chain to remove all sugars for this sugar-free variety.

What’s the REAL reason you changed a great product? Oat Yeah was delicious and was most like cow’s milk. It was far better than ANY OTHER BRAND ON THE MARKET! My fiance loved it and he hates anything healthy. I would love to know why it changed. Can you reach out and let me know? This new version is.NOT it!

Oat Yeah Creamer is the best

I am very concerned that in rebranding Silk has also changed the consistency of the oatmilk creamer. I use it regularly in my Nespresso frother, and the renamed creamer DOES NOT froth like the original Oat Yeah creamer. AND I was hoping the chocolate-peppermint flavor would return this fall. It’s a much better seasonal treat than Starbuck’s pumpkin lattes.

Since Silk took over, Oat Yeah is a far cry from what it used to be. It’s no longer creamy, lost its sweetness and curdles in my coffee. We will no longer be buying what used to be our absolute favorite creamer. What a disappointment

Response from Go Dairy Free

As a heads up, this has always been a Silk product. They just rebranded / changed the name from their original Oat Yeah name to Silk.

Great 1/2 and 1/2 Replacement

Rated 5 out of 5
July 5, 2021

None of the plant-based creamers were cutting it for me in replacing 1/2 & 1/2. They all were either too expensive, did not add the creaminess I was missing, or added an odd flavor to my coffee.
Then I saw Oat Yeah extra creamy and gave it a try. Best decision ever. I noticed I couldn’t find it in my stores in fall of 2020, but Costco still has the two pack, so I knew something was changing! Happy to see the new branding in my stores again finally! This is my go-to for my coffee hands down. Since a carton lasts me for weeks, it’s a great value too.

Why is it grainy?

I have tried a couple of different oat milk brands, and I think this is the worst. It’s tasteless and feels awkward and grainy in my mouth. I think this would only be good in things that you cannot taste the milk.

I use the zero sugar, I’m diabetic and I watch my sugars and carbs. I also have a life long allergy to wheat and milk…the point …for those of us that must adapt our diets this milk alternative fits the bill. It’s also much more environmentally friendly than almonds and as for cashews, well they are on a watch list for human rights.

Red and White Carton Silk Oat Yeah Oatmilk

I love this because I am on a low oxalate diet. I drink this to prevent calcium oxalate kidney stones. With two eight ounce glasses of this milk, I get almost all my calcium needed for one day. (that’s 460mg per glass!) Plus if I’m eating something higher in oxalates, this helps balance out the oxalates. The sugar content is low (5g each of regular sugar and added sugar), plus lots of other vitamins. What’s not to like?
