The O.C.’s Rachel Bilson Is Obsessed with Oat Milk. Here’s Why.

Actress Rachel Bilson—who played Summer Roberts on popular series The O.C. —is a big fan of oat milk. The star recently partnered with vegan brand Planet Oat to promote its environmentally friendly oat milk, which she uses to make vegan pancakes, fudgsicles, overnight oats, and banana bread. The star spoke with Green Matters about her love of oat milk and the sustainability practices she teaches her six-year-old daughter Briar Rose. “We are avid oatmilk users in our household, and my mom’s vegan, so in her household, too,” Bilson said. “My daughter, we took her off dairy to see if we could help clear up some eczema, and it actually did.

While the 39-year-old actress is not (yet) vegan, in addition to consuming oat milk regularly, Bilson engages in other sustainable practices such as wearing thrifted and recycled clothing and packing her daughter’s lunch into bento boxes and other reusable containers. “If it’s helping the planet in any way, even the smallest way, I am a huge supporter of that,” Bilson said . Oat milk is everywhere

Bilson isn’t the only one with a healthy oat milk obsession as businesses are putting it on their menus worldwide to meet consumer demand for the plant-based milk. Planet Oat’s oat milk can now be found on the menu at all 9,000 Dunkin’ locations nationwide.
