Homemade oat milk is inexpensive, creamy, delicious and low waste. Follow this easy, 4-ingredient recipe along with my tips and tricks to get oat milk that tastes even better than Oatly. Once you give it a try, you’ll say goodbye to store bought milk!
Store bought plant-based milks will always be more processed. They are convenient but when you make your own milk at home you avoid the extra oils, preservatives and thickening agents. Make sure you follow the tips and tricks below to get the perfect consistency and flavor.
2. Rolled oats are the best kind of oats to use for making milk. Quick oats and steel cut oats won’t work well, I promise.
4. Double strain your oat milk to get rid of as much sediment as possible.
5. Use a cheese cloth or nut milk bag to strain for best results. Second best option would be a thin towel.
6. Sweeteners are optional — if using dates make sure they are pitted and soaked in hot water first.
If you have a food processor you can use that instead of a blender to blend oats into oat flour and then blend together with ice water.
