Homemade oat milk

Gluten-free oat milk ready in no time!

Have you ever drunk oat milk? Or even more – have you done it yourself? Oat milk is a great drink to add to smoothies, porridge or, why not, healthy biscuits or pancakes. Although the range of plant-based milks sold in shops is constantly expanding, their prices are often quite hefty. The good news is that making oat milk at home is actually really easy, requires no special skills, takes no time and is super cheap! Are you ready to try? We promise it’s worth a try, because in addition to the above-mentioned benefits, homemade oat milk is also free of additives and you can flavour it exactly the way you like. But let your imagination run wild and add maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon or something exciting!

Amount: about 1 litre of milk
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Severity: light
It will take:

  • 1 glass of gluten-free oatmeal
  • 4 glasses of ice-cold water
  • a more powerful blender
  • 1-2 tablespoons maple syrup (optional, for flavouring)
  • pinch of salt (seasoning, optional)
  • gauze or cheesecloth for churning (a sieve with oversized holes will also work, but cloth works better!).

How to make oat milk?

Place the oatmeal in a blender with the maple syrup and ice-cold water (be sure to use as cold water as possible, as warm water can make the milk “slimy”) and process for 30 seconds to 1 minute maximum. Prolonged processing can also make the milk slimy! Throttle if you wish.
Store the milk in the fridge, in a lidded container, for up to 5 days.
