How to Make Oat Milk

Oat milk is so rich and creamy! It’s a great alternative to dairy milk and a good option for those with nut allergies who cannot have almond milk. Follow below for all of our tips on How to Make Oat Milk!

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup rolled oats (see note)
  • 4 cups water
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Place oats, 4 cups fresh filtered water, salt and maple syrup in a high-speed blender and blend continuously for 1 minute.
  2. To strain it either use a nut milk bag and squeeze into a bowl, or line a strainer with a thin kitchen towel over a bowl and squeeze the nut milk into the bowl. The more you squeeze the oats, the thicker and stickier the oatmilk will be. We preferred to stop squeezing once we noticed the liquid coming from the oats to be very thick, which we found made it have an unpleasant texture.
  3. Pour into a jar and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, though it is better the fresher it is. Separation is normal in non-dairy milks, just shake it up before using it.

Notes

If you are gluten intolerant, be sure to purchase oats labelled as gluten-free
