Since a lot of people have been asking whether I make my own oat milk. Here it is. You can skip the dates and maple syrup if desired. I added vanilla and salt for a bit of body. And also, I like to lightly toast my oats. I find that it sorta removes that raw oaty taste and adds a bit of flavor (maybe it is just me).
I used this oat milk for most of my coffee endeavors. This non-dairy milk almost has the same frothy texture compared to regular milk. I hope you will give this recipe a try.
Rolled Oats, 80g
Dates Pitted, 1
Maple Syrup, 20g
Pure Vanilla Paste, 1/2 TSP
Sea Salt, Pinch
Cast Iron Skillet
In a skillet over medium-low heat, add oats.
Lightly toast the oats until aromatic.
Transfer into the blender and blitz with the rest of the ingredients until smooth.
Taste and adjust for sugar.
Pass the mixture thru' a cheesecloth with a sieve over a large bowl.
Set aside to drip for 30 mins.
After 30 mins, squeeze out as much liquid as humanly can.
*You can discard the residue, but I froze them for future experiments.*
Transfer the oat milk into a sterilized bottle.
Keep chilled in the fridge until ready to be consumed.
It can be kept for up to 5 days in the fridge.
The oat will tend to separate. Give it a shake before using.
Will you give this a try?
