Make your own oat milk!
I woke up to no milk a few days ago, so I made some! I do love a cuppa when I wake up, but not enough to get us dressed and head out in the rain to buy some, so I decided to make do with what I had. It is mind blowingly easy and makes deliciously creamy milk!
- 1 cup of oats (100g)
- 4 cups of filtered water (800ml)
- Dash of honey (optional)
- Pinch of salt (optional)
- Clean tea towel
- Large bowl
- Measuring cups or scales
- Glass jar for storage
- Whizz the oats and water (+ honey and salt if using) in a blender on high speed for around 30-40 seconds
- Strain through a clean tea towel into a big bowl (you can use a sieve of fine mesh strainer but they let quite a lot of pulp through)
- Store in a glass jar in the fridge and shake before use
Fun fact! Oats are one of the best sources of beta glucans. These are a form of soluble dietary fiber that’s strongly linked to improving cholesterol levels and boosting heart health!
