Going dairy-free can be challenging—once you limit your dairy intake, you realize how much of our food has some kind of dairy in it. Whether it’s bread, pasta, or even our morning coffee, cutting dairy can be tricky. That challenge is exactly why the release of any new dairy-free substitute gets praised like a winning lottery ticket. We don’t want dairy, but we do want options! Luckily Silk listens and fulfills all its dairy-free fans’ deepest desires, including a dairy-free half and half. Praise be to the dairy-free gods!
Let’s dig into this new dairy-free miracle and see how it will make our latte-loving dreams come true. Silk is shaking things up with the release of this half and half recipe; this product will be the first on the market to use oat milk for a base.

Going dairy-free is a great move and will benefit your health. Dairy is very high in fat, so going dairy-free is a great way to cut some calories. The saturated fat in dairy can also lead to unhealthy increases in cholesterol. For those of us that are lactose intolerant, avoiding dairy is a significant impact on overall health. Dairy consumption is also linked to acne. Considering how much effort we put into our skincare routine and the purchase of skincare products, consuming dairy is like undoing our efforts for clear skin.
Additionally, A dairy-free lifestyle is also a great way to lessen your impact on the environment. To produce dairy, the United States has about 9 million dairy cows. These cows and their manure produce greenhouse gas emissions, which contribute to negative impacts on global warming including climate change.
There are lots of reasons to celebrate Silk’s newest product. Whether you’re dairy-free for your health or the environment, this oat-based half and half will make your dairy-free efforts that much easier.
