Oat Milk Lactose-Free, High In Fiber

By Steve Petusevsky Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel

If you don’t like the plant-like flavor of soy milk and you’re looking for an alternative to rice milk, try oat milk from Sweden. Made from organic ingredients, it tastes great and is heat stable. It won’t break or thin out during cooking like soy and rice milks.

I have used it in soups, stews, shakes and sauces where it forms a creamy sauce. It also works extremely well in baking. I even use it in my coffee and tea.

One of my favorite ways to use oat milk is to blend it with ripe fruits such as peaches, nectarines, berries and bananas. Add some honey or maple syrup for sweetener, if you like.

The best news is that oat milk is low in fat, high in fiber and free of cholesterol, sugar and lactose. And current research shows that oats, which contain lots of soluble fiber, play a significant role in reducing serum cholesterol.
