Review of Provamel Oat milk

Well I am trying to encourage myself to be more adventurous and try different varieties of dairy free milks. Recently I discovered hemp milk and really enjoyed it. I have previously tried an oat based milk and I was a little disappointed by both by the taste and texture. So I thought that I best try an alternative brand as to not dismiss this variety of milk. I opted for Provamel as I like their dairy free products and because it was on offer.

On opening the carton there was a faint nutty aroma noted, which seems to be a common theme with the various milks that I have tried. On pouring the milk into the glass it had a thin to medium consistency and had a slightly cream colour. This was different to the other oat milk that I had tried which was thin and slightly watery.

On sipping the milk it had a fairly neutral non offensive taste slightly nutty maybe but I felt I couldn’t really taste the oats. I then tried the milk heated in the microwave for the usual time to have with my weetabix. It heated well and didn’t separate or produce a skin layer to the top. A good sign if you might be considering using this milk when a baking cooking a sweet of savoury dish. It mixed well with the weetabix and produced a similar consistency and texture to the other milks I have tried. Now on to the flavour it changed the weetabix slightly with a slight sweet nuttiness being noted. On drinking it chilled in a glass, it had a fairly non descript neutral flavour, with a faint hint of nuttiness. So I would I have this milk again, yes I would. It’s always worth trying a variety of the same milks because what I am discovering is that they can vary. So if you are dairy / lactose free like me or follow a vegan diet why not give this milk a try. Thanks Provamel.

    What milk would you recommend for tea? Can’t find a good dairy free one anywhere that doesn’t leave the tea tasting slighty off!
    Thanks,

      Hi Ash, I am afraid I drink all my tea without milk so I can’t answer that question, sorry. I still struggle to drink milk. If I have hot chocolate I use unsweetened soya milk and occasionally unsweetened almond milk if that’s any help C 😊.
