Oatly’s goal is to always deliver products that have maximum nutritional value and minimal environmental impact. Everything they make is based on plants; absolutely nothing has anything to do with the animal kingdom whatsoever, and absolutely no GMOs. Oatly want to make the food industry a more honest place by declaring to be totally transparent in everything they do. A couple of decades ago, Oatly looked at the nutritional power of oats and thought’ what if we forgot the cow altogether and turned these oats into a drink that was designed for humans?’ So they did. And here it is.
Everything Oatly make is from Swedish oats. What makes Swedish oats so special? They grow strong and tall in the Nordic climate, which is a crazy mix of long sunny days (and nights in the summer) mixed with short periods of intense rain. Moreover, many of the nasty pesticides that are used on oats in the rest of Europe are totally forbidden in Sweden.
Why not treat yourself to a hot cup of mocha with a little extra? A real pleasure for people who love dark chocolate and coffee. It’s easy to make. Just take 200 ml of Oatly Oat Drink Chocolate (SY045), 1-2 teaspoons instant coffee (preferably espresso- TE570 or TE561) and 1 teaspoon grated dark chocolate (or ½ teaspoon cocoa). Warm the Oat Drink. Pour into a mug and stir in the instant coffee. Sprinkle grated chocolate on top. Easy and delicious!
