    I Can't Stop Eating This Oat Milk Ice Cream And You Should Try It

    Run, don't walk, to the ice cream aisle.

    Hi, I'm Hannah and I am sort of obsessed with oat milk. So when I heard Oatly was coming out with ice cream made from their non-dairy milk, I was eager to try it for myself.

    So on a random morning while grocery shopping, I finally stumbled upon Oatly ice cream in my local grocery store. I immediately bought two pints. PS: If you're looking to buy it, it's available at Whole Foods Markets around the country.

    It costs $5.99 a pint, which is on par with your average store bought Ben & Jerry's or Talenti.

    I grabbed the vanilla and mint chocolate chip, two of my favorite ice cream flavors, to see how they taste IRL.

    Each serving (about 1/3 pint) contains 200-260 calories depending on the flavor.

    While I'm not lactose intolerant or anything serious, I do find that my stomach often hurts after eating a substantial amount of dairy. Therefore, I try to consume non-dairy alternatives whenever I can.

    Upon trying the Oatly ice cream, I wasn't surprised to find that it is really creamy and very decadent. It has the same luscious texture and rich flavor you associate with real ice cream.

    I eat non-dairy ice cream like Halo Top and Enlightened when I'm craving something sweet but am trying to be health-conscious. And while I do enjoy them, they don't satisfy that same craving for something velvety and indulgent the way cream-based ice cream does.

    Oatly satisfies my craving for decadent ice cream. The texture is almost identical to your favorite full fat, dairy-based frozen dessert. I will say I found the flavor of the Oatly vanilla and mint to be a bit more subtle than and not quite as sweet as the ice cream I'm used to, say Ben & Jerry's or even Halo Top.

    All in all, I'm excited about Oatly ice cream and I'm sure it will be a fixture in my freezer. If you like the taste of oat milk, you'll be hooked to this frozen dessert. It's straight-up delicious, and it's also a great option for anyone who is allergic to dairy or nuts.
