Oatly was launched in Sweden in 2001 and is the biggest selling alternative to milk in Sweden. I kind of tried oatly on a whim and I have to say oatly is a great alternative to soya milk. With Fussy Foodie Claire finding she is intolerant to soya milk, oatly is a perfect alternative and also a great way to get a little extra calcium.
I have given oatly a whirl in my porridge, hot cocoa and over cereal and all works really well. Just make sure you give the oatly a big shake everytime you use it as it can get a bit gloopy. I think I prefer rice milk as a soya alternative on porridge, as you might guess with oatly it just tastes well oaty when it’s on porridge.
If you are looking for a soya alternative or just fancy something new give oatly a whirl.
