The nondairy plant milk shelf got crowded in 2018.  Soy, almond, rice, oat and even pea milk have given you many options in sweetening your coffee or soaking your morning bowl of corn flakes. However these new plant milks are not cheap and can be double or triple the price of cow milk. However making your own oat milk is beyond simple, cheap and probably healthier than store-bought versions. All you need is a cup of rolled oats, three cups of very cold water, a pinch of kosher salt and a blender. Place the ingredients into your blender and mix on high for 30 seconds to a minute. Next, strain the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer, twice. Then shake well before enjoying! Want it thicker, than use two cups of very cold water instead. Oat milk doesn't have more protein than cow's milk but has more than almond, cashew, coconut and rice milk. Plus it is packed with fiber and is naturally sweet. Best of all, your homemade oat milk can stay stored in your refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of rolled oats
  • 3 cups of very cold water
  • Pinch kosher salt


Directions

  • In a blender, blend together all ingredients on high until well combined, 30 seconds to 1 minute. (If using Vitamix, blend on high for 10 to 12 seconds only.)
  • Strain mixture through a fine-mesh strainer, twice. Transfer to a glass jar and store sealed in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  • Shake well before serving.
