Oat milk has become increasingly popular over the past few years due to its creamy texture and nutty flavour. It's also a great alternative to dairy milk for those who are lactose intolerant or have dietary restrictions. And the best part? It's incredibly easy to make at home. In this blog, I'm going to show you how to make oat milk in just a few simple steps.

Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients

To make oat milk, you'll need:

- 1 cup rolled oats

- 4 cups water

- A pinch of salt (optional)

- 1-2 tablespoons sweetener of your choice (optional)

Step 2: Soak Your Oats

Place your rolled oats in a bowl and cover them with water. Let them soak for at least 30 minutes, or up to 24 hours if you have the time. This will soften the oats and make them easier to blend.

Step 3: Blend Your Oats

Drain the water from the oats and rinse them well. Add the oats to a blender along with 4 cups of fresh water, a pinch of salt (if using), and your sweetener of choice (if using). Blend on high speed for 30-60 seconds, or until the mixture is smooth and creamy.

Step 4: Strain Your Milk

Place a fine-mesh strainer over a large bowl and pour the oat milk through it. Use a spatula to press the milk through the strainer and into the bowl. This will remove any remaining oat solids and leave you with smooth, creamy milk.

Step 5: Store Your Milk

Transfer your oat milk to a glass jar or bottle with a tight-fitting lid. Store it in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

And there you have it – homemade oat milk in just a few easy steps. You can customise your oat milk by adding different sweeteners or flavourings like vanilla extract or cinnamon. You can also use it in recipes that call for dairy milk, like smoothies, baked goods, and more.

Making your own oat milk is not only fun and easy, but it's also a great way to save money and reduce waste. So, grab some oats and get blending – your taste buds (and wallet) will thank you.
