Willa’s was started by two sisters and born from a family belief in using honest ingredients to make food both absolutely delicious and nutritious. Willa's creates organic oat milk with a deliciously creamy consistency, using the whole ingredients as nature intended.
Willa’s Oat Milks are the most sustainable plant milk on the market (organic ingredients and zero food waste), and the healthiest oat milk around. They create a deliciously creamy consistency, using the whole ingredients as nature intended. Their first products were inspired by their grandmother’s oat milk recipe and transformed into a proprietary, zero waste milling approach that creates a creamy consistency using the whole entire oat.
While other oat milks strip away the healthiest 20-30% of the oat and then process them heavily to make them sweeter and higher in sugar, Willa’s uses the entire whole grain oat and processes it minimally. It’s like comparing an artisanal whole-grain bread to highly processed white bread. And it tastes super creamy and delicious using clean ingredients, just like their Grandmother Willa’s recipe.
Christina & Elena's Grandma Willa used real, honest ingredients to make the creamiest, most delicious oat milk ever.
As they got older, they struggled to find oat milk that measured up to Grandma Willa’s recipe. So, they thought, why not bring hers to the world instead? They dug up her hand-written recipe card from their mother’s kitchen drawer and got to work.
The result? Willa's oat milk. It’s made with honest ingredients you can recognize. It’s organic, non-GMO and sustainably produced, using the entire whole grain oat and real organic vanilla. Unlike other oat milk, Willa's uses the whole oat in their recipe which allows them to get all the grain’s nutrition. This means more protein and fiber in every serving, and less sugar because they're sweet enough!
They took great care in making sure their oat milk lives up to Grandma Willa’s, and the best part is you can feel good about drinking it, and serving it at your table, every single day.
