Homemade Oat Milk

Making your own oat and nut milks right at home is way easier than you may think!

Homemade Oat Milk

Did you know that, in its purest form without gums or other additives, oat milk is literally oats blended with water, and then strained until smooth and creamy?

I’m truly shocked and kind of annoyed with myself that, until now, I’ve never made my own oat milk or nut milk! I had no idea how quick, easy, and surprisingly budget friendly it is to do this. I’ve been educating myself a bit more on what really goes into the oat and nut milks we see on grocery store shelves, and it’s not sitting well with me. I don’t like the way cow’s milk makes me feel, which is why for over a decade now, I’ve opted for non-dairy options. But as it turns out, these contain all types of unnatural, processed additives as well which may have been contributing to other issues like gut health and inflammation.

That being said, I began looking into making my own oat milk, and this easy recipe was born! It’s creamy, silky, rich, slightly sweet, and just delicious. Best of all, I know what’s in my food and going into my body, and it’s not a bunch of processed ingredients. Use this as you would any milk. It’s delicious with cereal, granola, oatmeal, and of course, coffee. This oat milk also froths up beautifully for at-home lattes and other coffee beverages. Yum!
