First time I tried oat milk in my americano at Intelligentsia coffee bar. Without any expectations I poured a little bit of oat milk in a tiny glass and tried it before adding to coffee. It was impressive – so creamy and thick! Then I tried to make it at home. It happened to be very easy and much cheaper than store bought. You will need only two ingredients!
Simple Oat Milk
- 1 cup organic rolled oats
- 3 cups water (1 cup=250 ml), you can add more water depending on how thick you like your milk
Soak the oats in water for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
Drain the oats and wash them (discard the soaking water).
- Blend the oats with 3 cup of clean water.
- Strain the milk using a cheesecloth, or a nut milk bag.
Store in a sealed glass bottle in the fridge for up to 5 days.
You can use this milk in your smoothies, coffee drinks or baking.
Enjoy little experiments!
