Non Dairy Sweet Cream Cold Foam With Oat Milk
A non dairy sweet cream cold foam with oat milk is a great option and is very easy to make.
Let’s get to the details of oat milk and why it is a great choice.
What Is Oat Milk?
Oat milk is easily available everywhere with oatly being the leading brand and is perfect for using for all types of coffee including frothing, steaming, whipping and foaming.
If you can’t find oatly at your local supermarket, you can order it online or opt for an alternative brand that has the word barista on the label as not all types of oat milk are great for use in coffee beverages.
Oat milk is made from rolled oats and fresh clean water. The oats are steeped in the water for a few hours, blended and then filtered through a metal sieve or strainer.
Oat milk is relatively new, much newer than soy milk, coconut milk and almond milk. Its use in coffee can only be dated to approximately 1994.
What I love about it other than the taste is the fact that it is a very healthy choice and loaded with nutrients.
Health Benefits Of Oat Milk
Oat milk is more than just simply being tasty, it is loaded with nutrients and has a very, very good nutritional profile of the vitamins and minerals that we need to live a healthy life.
It has potassium, phosphorus, calcium, vitamin B12 and vitamin D. Just one glass of oat milk will provide you with 25% of your daily needs for vitamin D, making it good for your immune system.
It has fiber to aid your digestion and balance your cholesterol. Talking of cholesterol, oat milk is cholesterol free.
Does Oat Milk Go Well With Coffee?
Yes, oat milk is one of the better alternative non-dairy milks to use with coffee. While cow milk is thicker and creamier, oat milk alongside coconut milk are the best non dairy milk options that are both smooth and creamy!
When steaming non dairy milk for a macchiato, cappuccino or a latte, your milk will stretch and expand to create a nice thick foam. Regular soy milk, almond milk, oat milk, cashew milk, rice milk and other alternative milks don’t thicken so well and may even curdle which is why a special version made for baristas must be used.
Some contain gellan gum while others have an oat milk base.
Over all oat milk is creamy, smooth and has a texture that is the closest to whole milk and is very easy to use in coffee.

Does Oat Milk Thicken Like Cream?
Yes, if your froth it well it will thicken like cream. Cold oat milk will froth better. Specialty milk brands for Baristas like Oatly and Barista are specially adapted for frothing and steaming to eliminate the probability of your milk curdling.
Why Is My Oat Milk Not Creamy?
If your oat milk is not creamy, it may be due to the type of oat milk that you are using or the type of oats if you are making your own homemade version.
Quick cooking oats are too processed and creates a slimier milk. Steel cut oats are at the opposite end of the spectrum and just too unprocessed while rolled oats are perfect and make the perfect creamy milk.
Does Oat Milk Whip Up?
Soy milk is a dairy free milk that has a high amount of fat, as is soy milk and cashew milk, making them good options for whipping. Coconut milk, regular or canned coconut milk are also good choices for whipping.
Yes, you can whip oat milk.
