How do you flavour oat milk to make it toddler friendly?

Hello all,
My DD is allergic to cow's milk protein, and she's been quite good at gulping some Oat milk once or twice a day, but only if I flavour it with some baby chocolate powder (a bit less sugary than the usual types).

However, I'd like to know any other tips to flavour it easily, I've tried vanilla pods, doesn't really work (and takes ages)... any other ideas?
anything with less sugar...

It's also because I'm planning to stop BFing and would like her to drink more oat milk in future, especially in the evenings, but obviously with less chocolate powder/sugar...iyswim

thanks in advance

What about boiling it up with fruit and honey. Banana and honey maybe. I have the same problem. I have given my toggle soya milk from the co-op sweetened with apple juice.

thanks both - I would like to avoid cooking with it as it destroys the calcium apparently. Will give the banana a try.
She's not drinking rice milk though.

DD used to love it blitzed with, bit of agave or maple syrup cocoa powder & banana - adds to the nutritional value too wink
