In recent years, plant-based milk alternatives like oatmilk have become incredibly popular, progressing from small coffee shops to the shelves of the largest supermarkets in the country. You may be surprised to learn that oatmilk has a variety of uses beyond your morning cup of coffee – including taking the place of traditional dairy in some of your most beloved recipes. Recently, Registered Dietician and Nutrition Expert, Mia Syn teamed up with Oatly to discuss the benefits of oatmilk and how to incorporate it into your favorite recipes during the holiday season.

Whether you’re dairy-free, vegan, or simply looking to switch things up, oatmilk is a versatile and nutritious option with plenty of benefits. Derived from plant-based ingredients, meaning its free from any animal-based byproducts, oatmilk provides a number of nutrients, including fiber and vitamin B12.
Oatmilk is a great option for those with dietary restrictions, such as lactose intolerance or nut allergies. In general, oatmilk is also better for the climate when compared to dairy milk.
The go-to for Mia is always Oatly. The world’s original and largest oatmilk company, Oatly offers a large array of products, from oatmilks to frozen desserts, that can be enjoyed individually or incorporated into some of your favorite recipes.
Mia shared some great recipes you can try at home, created by Chef Amanda Cohen, owner of Dirt Candy, an award-winning, Michelin-starred vegetable restaurant in New York City.
To accompany your next holiday dinner? Roasted Carrots with an Oatgurt Dressing. A simple and easy way to brighten up a classic side dish, it starts with a cup of plain Oatly Oatgurt mixed with different herbs, spices and olive oil.
And for dessert? A deliciously fun twist on classic pumpkin pie, Pumpkin Pie Oat Bars made with Full Fat Oatly Oatmilk.
