I started making my own homemade oat milk after indulging in one too many matcha horchatas from True Food Kitchen. I realized that it was time to make my own oat milk for my iced matcha concoction, as well as for other recipes.
Making your own dairy-free milk is really very easy and quite cheap! All you need is a nut-milk bag and a good blender and you are set! I use these bags and my Vitamix that we invested in from Costco.
So without further ado – here is my homemade oat milk recipe!
4 cups water
1 cup gluten-free oats
1 organic pitted date (optional but so good!)
Large pinch of Himalayan salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Add all ingredients to a high powder blender and blend for about 30 seconds (don’t over-blend as it makes the mixture slimy). Pour the blended oat mixture into a nut milk bag or a thin dish towel and squeeze out all the yummy “milk.” Pour the oat milk into a storage container with a lid and keep in the fridge for about 5 days.
*Note: Do not heat as it will thicken and become slimy.
