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.*

I tried this product while visiting my daughter in California. It was creamy, smooth, not sweet and it’s delicious. I’m trying to find it in Canada, but no luck yet. Hope it makes it to market here.

The chocolate version of this has maybe a hint of chocolate. It is so bland and joyless.

Good taste, treading lightest of the other cow milk alternatives

While its no Oatly, its still pleasant enough. I’m a bit disappointed in the lower fiber content, but it beats out factory farm produced cow breast milk by several planets’ less consumption to produce. I Wish I Knew if Michigan farmers losing farms were participating in growing oats rather than the irrigated deserts of California. Still, all in all, I’d celebrate my neighbors if they chose this over even almond milk. Its potentially among the lightest footprints of milk alternative I know of. I’d love to try out the Elmhurst 1925 unsweetened Milked Oats for a comparison. That sounds even more real yet.

Tried the plain version because the store was out of Oatly. Yuk – never again!

Not The Best On The Market

Sorry guys, but because this gives you only 1g of fiber (regular, and vanilla) it’s not the best “bang for the buck”. The taste and consistency, like the other brands, is pretty darn good. But it’s the lack of fiber that makes me choose the Quaker Oat Milk (4g of fiber) and Planet Oat Milk (3g of Fiber) over Silk Oat Yeah. Increase the fiber content and you’ll have yourself a customer.

Better than anything else i've tried.

Great on cereal and fruit shortcake. I’m sure it would be great for making French toast. Would like to try in something savory next.
Someone mentioned that they wanted more fiber; please don’t add more. I can’t have a lot of fiber due to radiation treatments. They can get their fiber from somewhere else.

Much better than almond milk

I use it in coffee & it works well. A slight oat flavor but does not alter the flavor of the coffee

Not as much fiber or nutrients as Oatly

I was excited seeing this at Walmart, since they don’t carry Oatly, and Target’s a bit of a drive. It tastes fine, but I wish it had more fiber and vitamins/minerals like Oatly.
