Aldi Shoppers Are Obsessed With This Oat Milk

These days, there are so many different dairy-free milk substitutes on the market, it can be difficult to even decide which option to choose. But Friendly Farm Oatmilk, available exclusively at Aldi, is quickly becoming a runaway favorite among shoppers who can't stop raving about this dairy-free drink. On Reddit, user u/SnooWoofers530 even made a post celebrating the arrival of this oat milk to their local Aldi, and other social media users were quick to chime in with their own praise of the brand. Reddit user u/PursuingFreedom posted, "This is by far one of my favorite things I get each week at aldi's! Way better than almond, coconut, or soy milk!"

This oaty beverage is 100 percent vegan, but as Aldi's website notes, people think it tastes more "milk-like" than other options. It also has a creamy, milk-like texture that makes it such a hit even with people who do consume dairy products, like Reddit user u/DarockOllama. "I'm not vegan at all but damn if I haven't found my milk if it ever comes to it. This stuff is SO GOOD," they wrote. "I use oat milk pretty much exclusively for lattes. I have nothing against cows milk and still slightly prefer it taste-wise, but I don't really use milk for anything else. If I buy a gallon, or even a quart of milk, I won't get through it before it goes bad. Oat milk is very nearly as good, and is probably better for me anyway, and it lasts forever in the fridge," u/benevolentpotato concurred.

Aldi shoppers swear by this oatmilk for coffee drinks

According to Fooducate, the dairy-free substitute contains 120 calories per serving, with 7 grams of sugar, 5 grams of fat, and 3 grams of protein. While some users on Reddit expressed their preference for other alternatives like almond milk, others swore by oat milk for things like coffee and lattes. "I've been getting this oat milk for months now... a bit sweet to drink straight regularly but I LOVE it for my cappuccino each morning. So creamy and thick, froths perfectly," u/Superimposed-Sm0ke posted. "I honestly just add water to mine to cut it and help with the sweetness," another Reddit user suggested.

At just $3.29 for a half-gallon, per Instacart, it also has the added benefit of being a cheap alternative to major competitors like Oatly. So if you've been wanting to cut dairy out of your diet but aren't quite ready to give up your creamy cappuccinos, or you haven't been a fan of other milk substitutes you've tried in the past, Aldi's Friendly Farms Oatmilk might just be the delicious and cost-effective alternative you've been looking for.
