Been searching for a good sports drink that's not too sweet and not fat-laden? I have started drinking Oatly (available from Ocado/Waitrose and probably health food shops).

Each 100ml contains:
1g protein
6.5g carbs, of which sugars 4g
fats 0.7g
No additives

I like it. If you like porridge, you can use it instead of milk (and on other things too).

Forgot to say.. as you might have guessed, it's an oatmeal-based drink.

Is it milky looking then RB?

I'm not really into milky drinks, but to add to cereal is ok.

Hilly it looks just like milk except it is completely lactose free. A lot of lactose intolerant people use it. If you use it for cooking it doesn't split as soya milk does.

Milky-looking except that it's beige rather than white. My interest in it (apart from liking the oatmeal taste) is that it has a better nutritional composition than a sugar-based sports drink.

But why would you use it to make porridge - if you wanted more carbs couldn't you just eat a bit more porridge ?

I see your confusion. I make the porridge with water but pour milk/oatly on it (with soft, dark brown sugar) to eat it. Making porridge with milk is, I believe, an aberration!

But mostly, I just drink Oatly as a (nutritious and tasty) drink.

I drink Soya milk:o)

Although I'm quite happy drinking ordinary milk, I've found porridge tastes really good with that Rice milk stuff.

Yum - just make sure you invest in a good non-stick pan!
