How can I make an oat latte at home?

Frothy, delicious, and slightly (ok, very) addictive. There's nothing quite like the perfect oat drink latte. As lovers of this super-tasty hot drink, we wanted to know how to make an oat drink latte at home.

And the good news? It's easier than you might think and doesn't always need a fancy frothing machine (but they do come in handy). Start by brewing your coffee of choice. Once it's nearly ready, you'll want to start frothing the oat drink. If you have a frother, just add the desired amount of oat drink and froth to your heart's content!

If you don't have a frothing machine, a carafe also works well (but we won't lie, this way takes a little more effort). Pour your oat drink into a carafe, pop on the lid, and pump until a nice froth has formed. No matter your method, you should get a lovely, fluffy froth to sit perfectly on top of your coffee. Sprinkle with a bit of vegan cocoa powder and enjoy!
