Recipe: Homemade oat milk
Have you ever tried making your own oat milk for muesli or porridge? It's very quick to prepare – and you only need a few ingredients.
Servings: 8 portions
- 100 g oat flakes
- 1 l water
- a little more water to soak the oat flakes
- 1 pinch of salt
- vanilla flavouring optional
Soak the oat flakes in water for about 15 minutes.
Put the oat flakes in your blender with a date, a pinch of salt and about a litre of water. If you like, you can add some vanilla flavouring to easily turn your oat drink into a vanilla version. Blend the ingredients in the blender for about 1 minute.
Finally, take a strainer and a bowl and pass the oat milk through the strainer to filter out any lumps from the plant milk and collect the clear oat milk in the bowl.
And you can enjoy your muesli, your overnight oats or your warm porridge with your own oat milk.
