Milk is all the rage right now. Almond milk has been a steady favorite for quite some time. And chocolate milk is childhood nostalgia making a comeback in a big way. But oat milk remains a 2019 trend that isn’t dying off any faster than celery juice.

The Boston-based oat milk company Planet Oat is capitalizing on this wellness fad with a kinda weird, kinda cool virtual reality experience. They’re coining it as an “Oat-of-this-World” virtual reality experience where you can sip their many flavors of oat milk while star gazing at a 360 degree projection of outer space. Yep, told you it was kind of weird.

On April 27 and 28 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. you can head to the Rose Kennedy Greenway near Rowes Wharf Plaza where you’ll find a white igloo shaped dome. Inside will be tables, couches, and stars galore where you can sip Planet Oat’s regular oat milk, extra creamy, vanilla, and chocolate blends. Admission to get inside and product samples will be free and open to the public.

This “Plan-oat-tarium” is part of a three-city tour from the Boston company which will later be taking place in Los Angeles and Portland so that everyone can get in on the oat milk and outer space phenomenon.

Planet Oat’s milk has no added sugar and is dairy free, so it’s a great alternative for those that are lactose intolerant. The original flavor contains 90 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, and two grams of protein. And it has 19 grams of carbohydrates, making it a great pre-workout drink of choice for some extra energy.

If you’re looking for other ways to utilize oat milk, Planet Oat’s website has a full list of recipes incorporating the dairy-substitute in everything from banana oat pancakes to creamy butternut squash soup and even double dark chocolate brownies. So I guess it’s safe to say that oat milk isn’t just taking over the wellness world—it’s taking over the planet.

Free, April 27-28, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Rose Kennedy Greenway, Boston, planetoat.com.
