I don't use this in coffee. I think you might need a thicker version like the barista versions Oatly sell. There must be someone online who has done the recipe for this. I use my oat milk for baking, cereals and making pancakes.
How does this work for you in coffee? I tried making my own using the cheese cloth method but founy it would not mix well.
For about 750ml of oat milk. One cup of oats soaked in warm water for 20 mins and drained if you haven't got a powerful blender. I put it into my Nutri Ninja (1000W) blender with 750ml of water without pre soaking the oats and blend on ultra setting for just under 1 min. Then I drain it using a muslin cloth to remove some of the starch. You will get about 750ml of thick oat milk. For thinner oat milk add extra water and drain through a cheese cloth (muslin square) after you blend it. You can also test by reducing oats to get the thickness you want. It will stay fresh in a kilner bottle for about 3-5 days. This is why I only make small amounts of it each time.
Do you have a recipe for this?
Very good. Easy to make and really cheap.

Usually cheaper than the normal price, but never cheaper than £1
Think that's the Longlife versions - this is the fresh, my duaghter doesn't like the longlife, says it has an after taste - which is a pain, since my nearest supermarket is 18miles away - I can't tell much difference once popped in the fridge, but she swears it has to her :(
Voted hot as this is a good price for Almond milk. But nowadays I make my own..Just soak almonds overnight and it's done in a minute in the food processor. Much better than the shop bought stuff which have additives to keep.it stable.
It’s worth noting that if you go the shelf section where UHT milk and other dairy free alternatives are, you can find it much cheaper than the refrigerated packs. Buy them from shelf and refrigerate at home!

Not only a deal - but switching to this stuff a few years ago has transformed my health and even skin no end. Turns out stuffing myself with infant cow juice wasn’t the best thing for me.
Rice & oat UHT version cost 0.93 in waitrose as well.
Taste is subjective precisely coz it is about familiarity, so alpro milks naturally seem different than cows milk, but the nut milks may be your closest/safest bet (personally, I dislike the uht ones, and maybe don't start with the unsweetened version at first - and they say you should keep trying new things for 21 days for the familiarity to kick in too:)......although I love the coconut ones in smoothies too. A friend had said M&S nut milks were the closest to cows milk, but I haven't tried them as yet.

I was thinking of switching from ordinary semi-skimmed cow's milk to Alpro, but want your honest opinion opinion - which tastes close to ordinary milk? I like to use milk on cereals, porridge, hot chocolate and smoothies

The almond is a very handy long life standby for cereals (and at a push, even for coffee) and tastes way better than UHT milk.
I found the coconut to be a bit overpowering. Much prefer the unroasted almond as it has a marzipan like taste. Either drink it straight of make iced coffees with it. Are there any with a higher % of coconut, almond or whatever? Do agree with the thickening part as some do seem "gloopy".
A great price if you love this stuff but... A carton of Alpro's almond milk is only 2 percent almonds. The rest of it is water and added vitamins, minerals and thickening agents. (nerd)
