Homemade Oat Milk

Feb 7, 2019

Nut allergy? No worries! Oat milk is officially “in.” While there are several oat milk products on the market, you won’t find one with just three ingredients, unlike this stellar homemade recipe. Plus, you’ll save money by making this creamy dairy-free drink at home. Use it on cereal, in smoothies, or simply enjoy it by the glass. Cheers! 

Nut-Free Vegan’s Homemade Oat Milk

Ingredients
1 cup quick or rolled oats
3–4 cups water
1–2 Tablespoons maple syrup

Instructions
1. Cover oats with water and soak overnight (or for at least 20 minutes if you’re short on time). Drain and rinse the oats.
2. Add oats, maple syrup, and water to a blender and blend for about 1 minute (If you want a thicker milk, use 3 cups of water. Use 4 cups for a thinner consistency).
3. Using a nut milk bag or cheesecloth, drain the milk into a bowl. Transfer to a sealable container and store in your refrigerator for up to one week.

Notes
-This milk is best enjoyed chilled and not heated.
-Other sweeteners such as agave and dates work just as well as the maple syrup.
-Once you’ve drained the milk into a bowl you can add any desired flavoring such as vanilla or chocolate.
-This recipe is gluten-free.
