Homemade Oat Milk
Soak 1 cup of oats in enough water to cover, Leave for at least 20 min or even overnight if you like.
Once drained and thoroughly rinsed ( to remove that "sliminess" that oats has, blend with 3 cups of water for only 8-10secs!
Tried to sieve it through paper towels but the seams gave way:(
I decided to use a tea towel instead. I worked really really well. I strained the liquid back into the blender to get ready for the add-ins! I imagine it acts the same way muslin would...
For flavour I added raw honey(as an aspiring vegan I have no problem using this. I don't think I'll stop when I become a vegan either...Unless I learn that it's bad for my health
I pulsed It a couple of times just the get the honey(and friends) mixed in, then poured into a jug! The bownish tinge is because of the vanilla.
This whole process took about 5mins, it’s super fast and super cheap and I love how readily available all the ingredients are. It tastes like oats, naturally but it’s nice and creamy. If you like it more or less creamy, sweet, smooth. Adjust the recipe as needed it’s really not fussy like that.I can imagine it with cereal and even cookies. I also prefer it to homemade Brown Rice Milk but I’m still searching for a better recipe for that one so I’ll keep you updated.
Let me know if you think of any nice flavour ideas you may try. That’s always fun to play around with!
I got this recipe from Angela at my favourite vegan blog, Oh She Glows. Can’t wait to try her Almond Milk; it sounds a lot more decadent! I’ll definitely let you know how it goes!
I put the step-by-step directions to how I made the milk in the captions:o)
