Oatly Dairy Free Milk Review and Incredible Pancakes
There is a lovely new dairy free milk substitute available which I love and it’s called Oatly! I have to admit I didn’t know what milk made from oats would taste like but it is delicious. I mean DELICIOUS! It is a bit yellow compared to normal milk but the nutty taste is stunning. Millie Mackintosh recently featured her love for Oatly on her instagram account with a photo of her breakfast using it. It works really well and has changed a few of my recipes to enhance them with a really lovely nutty taste.
Plus for the sweet tooth’d of us there is a chocolate variety which is also really nice. When it gets a bit colder I will be trying it warmed up with a little more cocoa powder for hot chocolate. The nutty taste doesn’t always go with tea but it’s good beside that little bit.
The oat taste works very well especially in making porridge. The oaty milk and oats just makes the oat taste super strong and it’s a delicious breakfast. It also goes very well muesli and cereal.
The milk substitute is tasty and with so many milk substitute being bland and unappetising this is a lovely change.
If you love milk shakes try this milk. You will never go back to normal milk again! It makes a banana milkshake a very happy drink.
The gorgeous thick pancakes with hot summer fruit compote
The best recipe I’ve found to use it in is Pancakes. I have tried this recipe a lot to make sure it works *wink wink* certainly not as an excuse to eat more. heehee
This recipe is based on the pancake recipe from Oatly
250g plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
300ml Oatly Oat Drink
30g unsalted butter melted and cooled slightly
A mix of fresh or frozen summer fruit warmed and soften with sugar to taste.
-In a large bowl sieve the plain flour, baking powder and sugar.
-In a jug beat the eggs with the cooled melted butter, vanilla and Oalty milk until combined.
-Whisk by hand until the mixture is smooth
-Leave in the fridge or somewhere cool for 30 minutes.
-Heat a non stick pan and add a little butter or oil.
-Pour or spoon in a spoonful of mixture in to the pan and cook for a few minutes. I like doing small pancakes and having a stack of them.
-Flip the pancake and cook until both sides are both golden brown.
Serve with the warm squishy summer fruits and enjoy.
Maple syrup also tastes amazing with them.
These have a fabulous oaty taste which is lovely to have with the fruit.
Maple syrup and the last of the juice from the fruit compote. Not a great photo but I was so hungry!
Oatly is available in most supermarkets and Holland & Barret have it too.
