There’s a lot to say about oat milk, but the creamy newbrexperience of this trending non-dairy milk is just about as delicious as thebrsimple benefits. A recent runner-up in the revolution of milk subs, oat milk isbrnaturally just a little sweet, has B vitamins, and is just as great for bonebrhealth in general. It’s lactose-, soy-, and nut-free, which makes this an all-inclusivebrchoice for your morning cup of coffee, no matter how you take it. Incorporatedbrinto our favorite cups around the Coastal Bend, here are the five best oat- milkbrdrinks.
An Oat Milk Latte from Roasted Coffee Shop. Latte artbrwith most non-dairy milks can be a little underwhelming, but thanks to the richbrtexture of oat milk that makes it latte-art friendly, we can stay sippingbrpretty. Additionally, there’s nothing like a straightforward latte tobrappreciate the combination of oats and Roasted’s espresso blend. But don’t takebrit from us: We’ve heard their customers lose it when they run out. 5535 Bonner Dr.
An Americano from Aztec with a splash of oat milk.brThe only thing better than a piping hot Americano from this specialty coffeebrhouse in Ingleside is the generous splash of cold oat milk to cool it down a little.brVisit them for a quieter morning cup at 2793 Main St in Ingleside, or viewbrtheir menu at aztec- coffee.com.
A Matcha with oat milk from Bien Mérité. Matchas havebrnever been creamier than when they’re made with oat milk. The strong, sweetbrflavor complements the naturally sweet flavors of matcha, and the combinationbrmakes for a rather sophisticated wake-me-up. 1316 S Staples St.
An oat milk “Iceuccino” from Crescendo. For frozenbrdrink lovers, Crescendo’s “iceuccino” selections can all be blended with oatbrmilk, which pairs perfectly with their unique flavors. For an excellentbrpairing, the Reveal (caramel, coffee, and peach) is a match made in taste-budbrheaven for oat milk. Check out the new cafe on 5118 S Staples St.
An iced latte from Eleanor’s Coffee Bar + Market with oatbrmilk. Ice cold oat milk is glorious enough, but drinking it in one ofbrEleanor’s iced latte’s gives us that refreshing “first sip” feeling. The bestbriced latte joins us this summer with an oat flair, and you can pick yours up atbrEleanor’s Coffee Bar + Market. 4231 S Alameda St.
