What Kind of Oat Milk should I use?
Personally, I prefer a full fat neutral flavored oat milk like Oatly.
Alpro’s Not Milk is also great but a little on the sweet side, so keep that in mind if that is something you care about.
If you don’t mind milk in your coffee and your coffee tasting like oatmeal, you can use any oat milk you have on hand.
