How to Make Oat Milk (So Easy!)
Oat milk is a creamy, delicious, plant-based milk that only requires a few ingredients and about five minutes to make. Use oat milk to replace dairy milk in baked goods, add to smoothies, coffee or pour over your favorite cereals.
Makes about 3 cups
You Will Need
1 cup rolled oats
4 cups cold water
1 pinch salt
1 to 2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 to 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, for vanilla milk
2 tablespoons cocoa or cacao powder, for chocolate milk
Handful berries, for berry milk
Add the oats and cold water and any optional ingredients to a blender. Cover with the lid and blend for 30 to 40 seconds. It’s okay if you see little speckles of oats. It is best not to over blend since it can cause a slimy texture.
Strain the oat milk. This is best done with a nut milk bag, clean cotton dish towel or multiple layers of cheese cloth that has been set over a large bowl or pitcher.
For the best results, double strain the mixture so that most of the solids are removed.
Store homemade oat milk in a sealed container and store up to a week in the fridge. Shake or stir before using.
Adam and Joanne's Tips
- Gluten-free: Not all oats are certified gluten-free. If you are sensitive to gluten, make sure that the oats you use are certified gluten-free.
- Steel cut oats will not make milk that is as creamy as rolled oats, but they will work. For the best results, use a high powered blender. We do not recommend using instant oats since they are already processed, which adds more starch to the milk (risking a slimy texture).
- Nutrition facts: The nutrition facts provided below are estimates. We have used the USDA database to calculate approximate values.
