Oat Milk (Vegan, Oil-free, & Gluten free)
Updated: Aug 18, 2020
There are so many plant milk options at the grocery store, but did you know you can easily make your own at home? This allows you to save money and control the ingredients.
1 cup rolled oats (Use gluten free if desired)
4 cups of water
1 tbsp maple syrup
Pinch of salt
1. Add all ingredients to a blender. Blend on high for 30 seconds. Do NOT over blend.
2. Place a nut milk bag over a large bowl then pour the oat milk into the nut milk bag. Gently squeeze the milk through the nut bag. If you over squeeze the oat pulp you can end up with slimy milk.
3. Transfer your oat milk to an air tight container and store in the fridge for up to 5 days. Shake very well before using. If the taste or texture changes, discard any unused milk. Discard the oat pulp or you can re-purpose it in baked goods.
Notes: This recipe is my go to for coffee, cereal, and cooking. Feel free to add less water if you want the consistency to be thicker or add flavorings like vanilla extract or cinnamon.
