Oat milk is a great alternative to regular or nut-based milk. It tastes really great with coffee, tea, and even cereal and cookies. Making oat milk at home is super-easy, does not require soaking oats overnight, and because you’re not pasturing the milk (like commercially made milk) it’s loaded with naturally occurring protein and vitamin D.
- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- Cook Time: 5 minutes
- Total Time: 10 minutes
- Servings: 3
- 1 cup rolled oats (or gluten-free rolled oats)
- 3 cups water (filtered)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (optional)
- 4 Medjool dates (optional)
Add oats, water, vanilla extract (if using) and dates (if using) to blender and blend on high until smooth.
Strain milk by pouring through nut milk bag or cheesecloth into pitcher or bowl.
Use hands to squeeze milk out of nut milk bag or cheesecloth.
Discard oat pulp (or save to use as face scrub!) and refrigerate milk. It will stay fresh in refrigerator for 2-3 days.
Shake thoroughly before drinking.
