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! I use to soak my oats before blending, but when I made this version it came out just as creamy, and it takes less than 5 minutes!

Yield: 4 cups of oat milk

Ingredients: 

1/2 cup of whole rolled oats (not the instant quick oats)

4 cups filtered water

Preparation:

Take 1/2 cup of rolled oats and water into your blender. Blend on high speed for 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 up to 1 week.

Note: Use the oat pulp for your next smoothie!
