I love making my own non-dairy milks. Making your own milk at home is so much cheaper than buying at the store. You can make this recipe for literally pennies versus the $3+ to buy a quart at the supermarket. Grab your oats and let’s get started!
Note: I found its best to use cold filtered water and only blend for 1-2 minutes. If you use water that is too warm or blend too long it can warm up the oats and in a couple of days you’ll have slimy milk.
Yield: 4 cups of oat milk
1 cup of whole rolled oats (not the instant quick oats)
4 cups cold filtered water
Place 1 cup of whole rolled oats and 4 cups of water into your blender.
Blend on high speed for 1-2 minutes. If you have a french press this is perfect for straining out the oats, or use a fine mesh strainer and pour milk into a glass jar or pitcher and enjoy.
The small bits of oat can settle so shake before each use. This will last in the fridge for 3-5 days.
