This time I tried making homemade oat milk, from scratch. Since it es something we do drink once every now and then, I wondered how easy / difficult it would be to make on my own. You know I like to make things myself if I can.
So I searched up some recipes and to get an idea how it is made and then went ahead to make my own. Many people had added sweetener and or even some vanilla extract, but since this was going to be my first time making oat milk, I wanted to make it as natural as possible, that meant only oats and water.
Another difference in recipes I had found was that some people soak their oats beforehand and some don’t. So I tried a soaked beforehand version and a not soaked beforehand version to test out the difference.
Bare in mind, that this was my first time making this. I just think the first time is always fun and interesting to see how it turns out.
I had so much fun making these and was so surprised by the results and how easy it was to make! For some reason I had thought it would be really difficult. Se here is my recipe:
- 100g rolled oats
- 750ml water
- It you want to soak your oats beforehand, do so for 1-2 hours. Then drain the excess water. Places the oats into a blender with the 750ml water and blend until smooth.
- Then using a clean kitchen towel or nut milk bag, pour the blended oat milk into the cloth over a bowl and then squeeze out the milk. Do this little by little. I saves my oat pulp I squeezed the milk out of and mixed it to cookie batter to amp up the nutrition.
- Refrigerate up to 5 days. Use as you would other milk. I like to cream my black tea and sauces with the milk.
