Light Oat Drink
Are you sitting down? We now make something called Light Oat Drink, which is huge news if the idea of making a thoughtful choice for the planet by swapping skimmed cow’s milk for light oat drink sounds like something you’d like to do. Pour it in a glass and sip away while listening to Mozart and looking out a window at flowers or maybe some swans, or gulp it while watching a monster truck rally. Don’t get caught up in the details. The point is, you now have a delicious dairy-free, soy-free, vegan, 0.5% fat option in your life. Like all our drinks, it’s made from oats, a pinch of salt, water and so forth. In other words, good stuff.
Let’s start with how it tastes. Yes, that is amazing, especially when you consider the next amazing thing: no added fat. Enjoy it as a drink, on your cereal, in your coffee, in your tea, in your smoothie. But the most amazing part might be that you can drink Light Oat Drink during the week, then polish off a few bags of crisps on the weekend and still get that “if you add it up the overall fat intake is alright” feeling. Or, the most amazing part could also be that is enriched with both calcium and vitamins. We clearly think everything about it is amazing so we’ll let you wrestle with the final decision on the amazingness hierarchy of product benefits, if that’s okay with you.
What might be less amazing
We have to be honest. The color is not great. It's pretty much municipal-office-building-from-the-seventies gray. That’s because of its low fat content (higher fat equals whiter oat drink). It also contains an acidity regulator so it will perform well in coffee and tea. We’d rather have added something that sounds cozier (like a summer breeze), but we had to let that go.
Last but not least
No milk, no soy, no way. Totally cool for both vegans and non-vegans. This product is fresh, so keep it that way, in the fridge.

How do we make our oat drinks?
Our oat base is just oats and water. But it’s what we do with those oats and that water that makes Oatly so special.
