Love Your Oat Milk Latte without Unloving Your Health

Oat milk latte is a beverage loved by many. Despite its creamy texture and rich taste, its consumption is frowned upon because of its ingredients. Though oats have a low glycaemic index (GI) score, it can lead to a spike in glucose levels, causing a hyperglycemic event. The sugar in milk may also lead to a rise in glucose levels. Together, it’s not a good combination, but here’s how you can optimise it.

Easy ways to make your oat milk latte a better beverage for your blood sugar
• Try preparing your oat milk latte without any additives, sugars and syrups. Natural sugars in oat milk make any additional sweetening unnecessary.
• Consider switching to water-based beverages, namely herbal teas like chamomile, green, or black tea, which may help lower blood sugar.
• You can use nut milk instead of whole milk to make your drink healthier.

Although oat milk is considered a healthy non-dairy alternative, it cannot be relied upon, especially for those monitoring their blood glucose levels. Oat milk contains maltose, a sugar with a higher glycemic index than glucose. It is wise to look for healthier alternatives to maintain blood sugar levels.
