Take your Savings to the next level by making this quick easy two-ingredient oat milk.
In honour of world plant milk day, a day that was started by plant-based news back in 2017. I wanted to show you the cheapest, creamiest plant milk I make. Oat milk is not only the most cost-effective milk to make. It is also the most sustainable milk to make.
You have little to zero waste because you aren’t getting the packaging from your Standard carton. You are not going to be buying too much and wasting it. This makes a smaller quantity. You can easily make a new batch if you run out unexpectedly. As for the leftover pulp. This is actually really great in smoothies, oatmeal cookies. You can pretty much add it to anything for a bit of extra fibre.
The thing about making your own oat milk, is you don’t have to worry about what is going into it. This oat milk is super simple and only has two ingredients. Oats and water. You can easily customize it and add in soaked dates as sweetener and vanilla as an added flavour.
this is a great recipe to have on hand and make when you’re in a hurry.
All you have to do with this recipe is take two cups of water and add it into a blender with one cup of rolled oats. If you choose, you can take an additional cup of water and soak your oats for about an hour. This helps them blend a little better and makes it a little creamier as well. But you don’t have to do this.
As soon as you have completely blended your oats and water. All you have to do is pour the entire contents of your blender, or your bowl into a nut milk bag. Then you just squeeze it until you can’t get anything else out and you’re done
- 2-3 cups Water
- 1 Cup Oats
- 3 Dates (optional)
- Soak your oats for about 30 mins to an hour before making the milk.
- Drain the water from the oats and add both oats and fresh water to your blender.
- Depending on if you have a regular blender or a stick blender you will want to blend the mixture for about 5 mins
- Pour into a nut milk bag that is in a bowl, and massage out all of your oat milk. This can take a few mins so be patient.
- Once done, save the oat pulp for smoothies, cookies, etc. and pour your new oat milk into a jar for safekeeping in the fridge.
