Homemade Oat Milk Recipe
Oat Milk is an easy to make, dairy-free, nut-free, alternative to milk. Oat Milk is great to use in cereal, coffee, tea, and in general as a replacement for dairy milk. Making oat milk at home means you can adjust the recipe to your preferences. You can add more or less water to adjust the consistency - add less water if you’d like to make it creamier for use in coffee for example - or add more or less maple syrup adjust the sweetness. The sky is the limit, you can even add vanilla, cocoa powder or cinnamon to flavour your oat milk.
Here is my simple recipe for Oat Milk:
1 Cup Oats
4 Cups Water
1 Tbsp Maple Syrup
Add all ingredients to a high powered blender and blend on high for 45-60 seconds.
Place a clean cotton t-shirt or tea towel over a pitcher (secure it to the pitcher with an elastic band).
Pour the Oat Milk over the towel and let strain. This may take some time, if you’re impatient like me, you can carefully remove the towel from the pitcher and twist the top to help squeeze the liquid through the cloth.
Store the oat milk in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 5 days. The oat milk may start to separate while it sits in the fridge over time - shake the container before each use.
