Oat Milk

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!

  1. Another great question….after further research I have found the soaking oats can reduce the amount, and cooking them also helps, but sprouting them is the best way to eliminate most of it. This also helps in the digestion of the food as well. I have pasted 2 articles with more information below. I hope this helps.

  2. Oats contain phytic acid, which impairs the absorption of certain minerals like iron, zinc,
    and calcium. So it is better to discard the water and blend with filtered water. It also helps the oats from going sour in a few days. Every time I make this I make one quart at a time and it lasts me one week. Thanks for your question, I’ve also updated my post with this information.
