Oat milk is one of the most popular plant-based milk. It’s light and tasty, but it’s hard to find store-bought oat milk that is not full of sugar and chemicals.

By making it at home, you’ll make sure that your drink contains only natural and healthy ingredients, and it’ll also be much more affordable!

How to make oat milk – Step by step

  • Soak the oats in water for at least 30 minutes.
  • Drain the oats and rinse them.
  • Add the oats, 34 cups of clean water (750ml – 1 liter), and all the remaining ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Strain the milk using a cheesecloth, a strainer, a napkin, or a nut milk bag. 

Pro tips:

  • You can use 1-2 Medjool dates or any other sweetener if you like your milk sweet.
  • I usually make unsweetened oat milk so I can use it to make savory and sweet recipes.
  • Salt is optional, but it enhances the flavor.
  • To make the milk, use just 3 cups of water (750 ml), try it, and then add more water until you get the taste and thickness you’re looking for.

      3. Add the oats, 3 to 4 cups of clean cold water (750 ml-1 liter), and all the remaining ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Add more or less water depending on how thick you like your oat milk.

    Does it matter what type of oats? Steel cut, old fashioned, or ?

      I personally used old fashioned, but I don’t think it really matters what type you use 🙂
