EASY-AS HOMEMADE OAT MILK


after many batches of fab homemade soy milk, i decided it was time to branch out and try my hand at another non-dairy milk – continuing with the non dairy milk range i had previously purchased from the supermarket i decided oat milk was a the obvious choice!

not only was making my own homemade oat milk super fast and super easy… it was also super simple to clean up and super cheap (winner!) 

how? 

1 cup of rolled oats
3 cups of cold filtered water
¼ teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of agave syrup

equipment: 
small bowl (big enough for 1 cup of oats and 2 cups of water)
colander
blender
large jug
whisk
nut milk bag (or fine strainer)
bottle/jar (1 litre capacity)

place your oats and 2 cups of cold water into the small bowl and leave to soak for 20 minutes

strain the oats in the colander and rinse with fresh cold water then set aside for a few minutes to allow the water to drain off

place the soaked oats into your blender with 3 cups of cold filtered water. blend on high for 1 minute

place your nut milk bag into the large jug and pour the blended oat mix through the bag. suspend the bag to allow the milk to drain through (or if your in a hurry just give it a squeeze to speed up the process)

whisk through the salt and agave syrup then your ready to bottle your fresh oat milk! so simple!! your homemade oat milk will keep in the fridge for around 3-5 days


yield = 1 litre
