Oat milk has become a huge dairy-free sensation. People love it so much that multiple brands and companies have been launching oat milk-based products. Since Oatly‘s takeover, Silk, Quaker, Chobani, So Delicious, Elmhurst, and Mooala are just some of the brands who launched oat milk or oat-based products. In March of 2019, Starbucks announced that they would finally be offering oat milk in certain locations. However, the dairy-free option was only available at five reserve locations and at Princi bakeries… until now.

Starbucks recently announced that they’ll be offering oat milk as a non-dairy option at 1,300 U.S. locations in the Midwest. Starbucks cafes in Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri and Wisconsin will have the option for customers.


To go along with the expansion of the oat milk which will hopefully eventually be at every Starbucks location, they’re also adding two dairy-free drinks to the menu: Almondmilk Honey Flat White and the Coconutmilk Latte.

People are choosing dairy-free options over cow’s milk whether it’s for the taste in coffee, the sake of the planet, their health, or the animals who suffer in the dairy industry. The decline of milk consumption will surely lead to more and more plant-based options, so there is more to look forward to!

Make Your Own Oat Milk

Homemade oat milk is actually quite easy. Try this recipe from the Food Monster App.

This Simple Vanilla Oat Milk by Kelly Williams is the easiest of easy homemade non-dairy milk recipes. To make oat milk, the only equipment you need is a blender and a nut milk bag. Unlike nuts, oats require very little soaking, so you can make a batch in nearly no time. And if you, like me, lack a fancy-pants blender, you’ll still be able to have creamy, delicious non-dairy milk without a trip to the grocery store.
