Coffee and tea drinkers can now enjoy two brand-new oat milk creamers under dairy-free company Silk’s Oat Yeah brand.

The Oat Yeah creamers come in two delicious flavors: The Vanilla One and The Oatmeal Cookie One. These new offerings are available at grocery stores nationwide, including Sprouts, Target, and Whole Foods. Martha Opela, Silk’s senior brand manager, stated:

Oatmilk first gained popularity with coffee-lovers in lattes from their favorite coffee shops. Now, with Oat Yeah Oatmilk Creamers, that experience is just as easy to enjoy at home. They’re deliciously creamy, gluten- and nut-free for those with food sensitivities, and are entirely plant-based versus traditional dairy creamers.

Silk isn’t the only company diving into plant-based creamers and coffee drinks. U.K. grocery chain Tesco now offers Nescafé Gold dairy-free instant lattes, available in oat, almond, and coconut. Made with 100 percent Arabica beans, these smooth and creamy lattes are low in sugar and fat and contain no cholesterol.

Nescafé posted the news to Instagram, even giving vegans a shout-out! Nestlé, the company behind Nescafé, also offers a line of plant-based creamers through the widely available Coffee-mate brand.

And these are just part of a bigger trend. A 2018 Bloomberg article about the growth of plant-based food points out that, from the previous year, sales of plant-based coffee creamer rose 131 percent!
