Silk Oat Yeah Oatmilk Gives Us Something Dairy-Free to Shout About

0

Every time I see the picture of Silk Oat Yeah Oatmilk, I think of the Kool-Aid man busting through a wall, shouting “Oh Yeah!” Fortunately, this milk beverage line contains a lot more nutrition than those sugar packets. And it boasts versatility in coffee, on cereal, and even in recipes. They even have an unsweetened version that might work well in some savory dishes.

And according to Silk, you can feel good about enjoying their oatmilk too. It reportedly has a smaller footprint than most other types of milk alternatives, which have a baby footprint compared to dairy milk.

Silk Oat Yeah Oatmilk Gives Us Something Dairy-Free to Shout About

Silk’s first foray into oatmilk has been met with great enthusiasm, but also with some mixed reviews. Let us know what you think – leave your own rating and review below.

The consistency of each flavor is very creamy thanks to the touch of oil, emulsifiers, and thickeners in the ingredients. It is free of carrageenan, but to coax the creaminess out of starchy oats, they still have to add some helpers.

The Plain One

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.

Ingredients: oatmilk (filtered water, oat extract), 2% or less of: sunflower oil, vitamin and mineral blend (calcium carbonate, vitamin a palmitate, vitamin d2, riboflavin (b2), vitamin b12), malt extract, dipotassium phosphate,  gellan gum, sea salt, sunflower lecithin, locust bean gum, ascorbic acid (to protect freshness). Produced on equipment shared with dairy and soy; see their website for details on their food allergen processes.*

Nutrition (per 1 cup serving): 90 calories, 3.5g fat, 14g carbs, 1g fiber, 4g sugars, 2g protein. Fortified with 45% calcium, 35% vitamin D, 15% vitamin A, 20% riboflavin, and 50% vitamin B12 of the RDA.*

The Vanilla One

It has just 2 grams more sugar, but this flavored version is notably sweeter then the plain one. But they are similar in other nutrients and consistency.

Ingredients: oatmilk (filtered water, oat extract), 2% or less of: cane sugar, sunflower oil, vitamin and mineral blend (calcium carbonate, vitamin a palmitate, vitamin d2, riboflavin (b2), vitamin b12), malt extract, dipotassium phosphate,  sea salt, gellan gum, sunflower lecithin, locust bean gum, natural flavor, ascorbic acid (to protect freshness). Produced on equipment shared with dairy and soy; see their website for details on their food allergen processes.*

Nutrition (per 1 cup serving): 90 calories, 2.5g fat, 14g carbs, 1g fiber, 6g sugars, 2g protein. Fortified with 45% calcium, 35% vitamin D, 15% vitamin A, 20% riboflavin, and 50% vitamin B12 of the RDA.*

The Chocolate One

According to the initial reviews, this isn’t your classically sweet chocolate milk. It’s lower in sugar, and it tastes like it too. But the flavor and richness are pleasant for a healthier drink.

Ingredients: oatmilk (filtered water, oat extract), cane sugar, 2% or less of: cocoa (processed with alkali), sunflower oil, vitamin and mineral blend (calcium carbonate, vitamin a palmitate, vitamin d2, riboflavin [b2], vitamin b12), malt extract, sea salt, locust bean gum, gellan gum, sunflower lecithin, ascorbic acid (to protect freshness), natural flavor. Produced on equipment shared with dairy and soy; see their website for details on their food allergen processes.*

Nutrition (per 1 cup serving): 120 calories, 3g fat, 23g carbs, 2g fiber, 13g sugars, 2g protein. Fortified with 45% calcium, 35% vitamin D, 15% vitamin A, 20% riboflavin, and 50% vitamin B12 of the RDA.*

Just ate a bowl of cereal with the unsweetened original and it was good! Better than almond, coconut and cashew milk.

I have not tried this but I was so excited when I saw it was being released. However, it in fact is not gluten free because it contains malt extract. Half of my household is gluten free, so we will not be trying this one.

Response from Go Dairy Free

According to Silk, this product does “a small risk of cross-contamination with other gluten-containing ingredients” due to the oats, but they have not disclaimed the malt extract as a gluten ingredient. So it might be derived from corn instead of barley. Thank you for pointing out this concern though! And it definitely isn’t safe for celiac.

Vanilla flavor..

So good! I was very hesitant on buying this but gave the vanilla flavor a try and so glad I did! It definitely is sweet but the flavor is very nice. Think.. almond milk but mild? For me almond milk has a strong flavor to it so I would hardly buy it unless I really had to. This oat milk though.. YUM. The flavor is much lighter but is very creamy! Going to have to try the unsweetened one next! I do recommend it. 😁

I only had the opportunity to sample the vanilla. I had it by the glass, and in mashed potatoes (I know! That was actually by accident lol). I do not care for it. I doubt I will buy another carton. Compare that to the oatmilk base in the new line of So Delicious frozen dessert pints. That I like, and would buy that base as a drinking and cooking milk. I have the remaining beverage to use up, so next I will try it in coffee.
