Creamy Oat Milk

A glass of oat milk on ice.Okay so you're probably wondering what in the world is that? Well oat milk is very heathy, and it makes a great non-dairy alternative. I first found out about it at Starbucks they have something called a honey oat milk latte. So I thought I can make my own. You can use it in cereal, coffee, or just drink it on its own maybe with a little additional maple syrup for taste;)

Tip: Chill it in the fridge:) or if you want to drink right away just add some ice, trust me it's better cold. Also do not shake before use, the remaining bits of oats will have settled and it is more smooth in texture.

Prep Time: 5 mins

Cook Time: You do not have to cook this. Blend for 30 secs or until smooth

Total Time: 10 mins

Steps:

  1. Take all the ingredients and put in a blender. Then blend for 30 seconds.
  2. Ingredients for making oat milk.
     
    Adding oats to a blender container.
     
    Adding water to the blender container.
     
    Adding salt to the oat mixture.
     
    Adding maple syrup to the oat milk mixture.
     
    Adding vanilla extract to the oat mixture.
     
    Blending all the ingredients together.
     
  3. Place a fine mesh strainer over a large bowl and strain the milk without pushing any excess pulp through the strainer. This will create a creamier texture that's not gritty or gummy.
  4. The blended creamy oat milk.
     
    Straining the milk to remove any solids.

  5. Add more maple syrup, to taste, if desired. Chill overnight. If you want to drink your oat milk right away, I recommend adding ice - its flavor is best when well chilled.
  6. A glass of oat milk next to the blender container.

That looks really easy to make. I haven't tried oat milk yet but I hear it is very tasty. We use coconut milk and almond milk as a substitute for cow milk.

I looked into making almond milk at home but almonds are so expensive, I never pursued it.

It is very easy! I know someone who makes their own almond milk, and even though it takes more time and resources she loves it!

Oat milk is an interesting alternative but don't expect it to taste like coconut, almond, walnut, cashew or soy milk. The common denominator to those milks is that they have natural fat. That's why you can often use them in place of milk for cooking. Oat and rice don't have fat so manufacturers often add gums or other thickeners to give it a smoother taste. In contrast, you can drink soymilk straight. Oat and rice milk are also gritty. My family loves milk substitutes but they will not drink homemade rice or oak milk.

The store bought stuff is okay but they add so many ingredients that the oat becomes almost irrelevant because you're actually drinking the other ingredients. And there isn't enough oat to add any health benefits, e.g. fiber. That's why my friend, a dietician, calls oat and rice milks "a scam." But you should definitely try it and see if it's to your liking.

This is so easy that even I can make it. A quick question: can I use steel cut or instant oats instead of rolled oats? Thanks.

Hey my friend! Actually not quite sure on that one, I haven't really experimented with that much lol! My guess would be that instant oats would be better then steel cut oats;)
