Love Oat Milk but Want More Protein? Califia Farms Is Coming to Your Rescue
Nowadays it seems like you can make dairy-free milk out of almost anything — almonds, pea protein, and even oats! Oat milk is a good source of calcium and vitamin D, and dietitians told POPSUGAR in a previous interview that some brands are also slightly higher in fiber than other dairy-free milks, and this fiber benefits digestion and heart health. Generally, it has more calories than other plant-based milks and has about half the amount of protein as regular cow's milk (for reference, soy milk normally has protein comparable to cow's milk). So, what's a girl to do if she wants protein with her dairy-free milk made from oats? Enter Califia Farms with Übermilks.
Califia Farms, which makes a variety of plant-based milks, creamers, and yogurts, is bringing Übermilk exclusively to Whole Foods in May and Target at the end of June, a spokesperson confirmed. This milk will come in three flavors: unsweetened, unsweetened vanilla, and chocolate. Each features a blend of oat milk (duh), pea protein, sunflower oil and seeds, and flaxseed oil, and is rich in vitamins and essential amino acids. But the best part? Übermilk has eight grams of protein per eight-ounce serving.
Let's look more closely at the numbers: unsweetened Übermilk contains 140 calories, one gram of fiber, eight grams of protein, and two grams of sugar per one-cup serving. To compare, Califia Farms' Oat Barista Blend has only one gram of protein per serving, 130 calories, three grams of sugar, and zero fiber. It's a nondairy dairy miracle! Ahead, check out the full nutritional information for all three flavors of Übermilk, provided by Califia Farms. We're so ready for Spring.
