You just brought back a childhood memory ... Every once in a while my Dad would treat us, and buy a coconut, cut it open and we would drink the water, and the best part ..... scoop out the coconut!! Oh that was SO good!!!

Coconut water is the natural liquid you get when you open a coconut.
I would suspect coconut water, purchased without the coconut, is processed to some extent, in order for it to keep. Perhaps with some additives? Perhaps the nutrient contents change? I don't have the answers, just questions I would ask.

Coconut beverage is a processed product, like almond, soy, oat, rice, etc. drinks are.
They all make me "cringe" with the word milk added to them. Just so not true.

Is there room for me on that soapbox with you, OKSoGlad?
Especially when you consider all the other foods we eat, that are much much higher in % fat content. So many avoid whole milk, yet it's pretty darned low in fat, when compared to so many other foods we eat that are so fat filled!

Are Vitamins A and D added to milk in the USA? Health Canada mandated the fortification of milk years ago (in the 70s, I think?) to ensure that we get the much needed benefits of both.

Yes, they are added to milk, but not a mandatory addition.

I buy Darigold brand whole milk. The grands love the chocolate milk, made from whole milk and tastes like a creamy milkshake. I don't buy milk in see through jugs.

Since the pandemic hit, we have been buying many things direct from local farmers and that includes milk. One dairy has a store onsite, open during daylight hours. It is on the honor system. A couple of coolers stocked with milk: white, chocolate and strawberry as well as several different varieties of dairy made cheeses. The milk is pasturized (law in Ohio) but not homogenized. My DH loves to pour the chocolate milk straight into the ice cream maker and add various goodies. You can see the cows in the milking parlor from inside the store. There is another dairy whose milk is even richer (think icebergs of cream) but they are too far to get to regularly. Luckily the milk is sold at the little store run by the folks we buy our grass fed meat from. And don't get me started on the butter. All this yumminess and no weight gain is possible with portion control.

Does the oat milk separate in your coffee? I make almond milk and it does separate, if I don't add some guar gum to it.

You could probably make your own. I'd start by buying flax seeds in bulk and them whizzing them in the blender with some water, then strain. Humm....I have some flax seeds. I may just try that.

Wow! Lucky you! I used to have some friends that had a huge herd of dairy goats. I'd get some fresh milk from them and made cheese with it. So good!

I never heard of oat milk until this thread but just yesterday my oldest son told me how much he loves it in coffee.
